Whether you are an experienced angler, or a novice, you can enjoy fishing Mill Meadow’s private lake.

Our lake is stocked with a variety of coarse fish, including:

  • Tench
  • Rudd
  • Roach
  • Silver Bream
  • Chub
  • Carp (common, mirror and grass)
  • Perch
  • Gudgeon

We have wheelchair accessible platforms so that fishing can be enjoyed by all!

Fishing Permit:

Fishing for Mill Meadow resident guests is available at no extra charge. We ask that you have a Rod Fishing Licence for fishing in England. If you do not have one you can purchase one here.
If you are new to fishing, please book an “Introduction to Fishing” session with our fishing coach Martin. This is for the wellbeing of the fish and so that you can get the best start to their fishing experience. You will be able to take your initial session with Martin without a Rod Fishing Licence. If you want to continue to fish at Mill Meadow you will have to purchase the licence.
You can bring your own fishing rod or hire one from us for £8 each.

Watch this video to learn the correct way to handle carp and please read our Fishing Rules.

Fishing Lessons:

Our friend Martin Baldock, a well known local football referee and cricketer, is a very keen and experienced fisherman.

Subject to availability Martin can be available to give guidance to the novice. He can also be on hand to exchange ideas with the more experienced angler so we can ensure the best possible experience for our guests and importantly the welfare of our fish.

Meet Martin our visiting Fishing Coach

“My dad took me fishing as a boy, for which I have fond memories, but unfortunately his knowledge of fishing was as much as mine and we learnt as we went, making many silly errors along the way.

Over the years I have learned an immeasurable number of tips essential to the art of fishing and my passion now is to share information to ensure that the fish are well looked after. I have helped many young people to fish in an appropriate manner, looking after the fish at all times. Barbless hooks have been a major breakthrough, but tying them properly so that they don’t come undone and stay in the fish’s mouth is so important.

Mill Meadow is the perfect environment to learn how to fish and I am delighted to be able to help them to do everything possible, to ensure the welfare of the fish in their care.

I look forward to spending many happy hours helping guests to enjoy their experience at Mill Meadow passing on the necessary skills to enjoy fishing for life as I continue to do.”

What our guests say…

Martin thank you so very much for today! Both boys went to bed chattering about the fish they had caught today and how amazing the lesson was, and very excited about the prospect of more fishing tomorrow! We went back this evening with some bread and caught two fish but we can all see the allure of maggots! Will head to the angling shop first thing!
Thanks again for such an informative and fun afternoon, and for all your encouragement with the boys – you were so lovely with them.
