AAt 17.6 acres this delightful lake is surrounded by an abundance of mature trees, including many impressive weeping willows conveying a feeling of seclusion in many of the custom built swims. As one would expect on a specialist carp fishery, the swims have been purpose built to meet anglers' requirements.
Although the lake has over the years become well known for the quality of its general fishing it has recently come to National prominence for its reputation for producing very large carp.
There are between 25 and 40 different thirties backing this up, there are perhaps some two or three hundred carp up to 30lbs.
Each year invariably see's one or two new thirtys on the bank.
Orchid lake probably offers one of the best chance of a thirty that you could possibly have on any day ticket water in the country. Along the way you can experience the pleasure of attending an extremely well run, secure and very attractive fishery.
Don't forget, as an added service to anglers, transport is made available to take you and your tackle to your chosen swim.
