About LORDS Lake

Lords Lake is an intimate snag-free lake with a chalet right on its large swim. Few venues of similar size can match the fish stock. The venue consists of a 2.6 acre carp lake, which is packed with big carp and cats. Lords Lake is Located a few hundred metres from the Bigot fish farm.

Local shops are 2 minutes away and the nearest supermarket is just 10 minutes away. The lake itself is roughly square in shape with depths between 1 and 1.5m. The bottom is clay covered in light silt and clear of snags.

Lords Lake Accommodation

The lakeside accommodation at Lords Lake is modern and comfortable

  • Modern shower and w/c
  • UK plugs for charging
  • Fridge and bait freezer
  • Two bedrooms
  • Bring your own bedding and towels

The Mobile Chalet

The facilities at Lords Lake are housed in a spacious 45 square metre wooden style chalet. It has heating and is fully insulated with double glazed windows and shutters. Situated on the bank right behind the main swim, the chalet is perfectly placed for social carp fishing.

Inside the Mobile Chalet

Inside, the main room is open plan with a fitted kitchen, lounge area with sofa bed and dining table. The kitchen has a hob, oven, microwave and kettle. There are two bedrooms, one of which has a double bed and the other has bunk beds. The electricity supply is from the mains, so hot water is readily available. The water is from a well.

Outside the Mobile Chalet

Outside the chalet is a large purpose-built swim, with space for 3 anglers to set up. Almost all Lords Lake anglers fish together from this swim because the whole of the lake is accessible from here. There are options to fish further along the same bank and on the other banks.

Vehicle Access

The chalet has all-weather access for vehicles and plenty of space for parking.

What You Should Bring

Although the facilities at Lords are comfortable and modern, you need to bring your own bedding, towels and tea towels. You should also bring bottled drinking water if you prefer not to drink boiled well water. Please note that you will also need to bring your own consumables such as toilet rolls and rubbish bags as these are not provided.You don’t have to pack carp mats though. Nash Monster Carp Cradles are provided

Lords Lake is roughly square in shape with depths averaging 1.5m. The lake bottom is clay covered by a light layer of silt.

The main features at Lords Lake are the far margins, where the carp tend towards the quiet spots. Some anglers use bait boats to reach these margins but many cast to them.

The lake bed is flat with little variation and there are no snags or places you can’t get to.

Catch reports give a good indication of the average fish sizes in the lake. This one from 2 anglers in September 2022: 47 fish including a common carp at 56lb, 3 x 45’s, 1 x 40’s, 9 x 35’s, 6 x 30’s, 4 x 25’s,  and 4 catfish biggest at 102lb.

Although Lords Lake has carp to 50lb, these are pre-spawning weights. This means that you need to fish before May if you want to target a 50. After spawning there is a good number of 30s and 40s, plus cats to over 93lb to have a go at.

Apart from the normal mirrors and commons, the carp species also include a few koi and grass. Other fish present in numbers are roach, rudd, and perch.  Despite the crayfish population has been drastically reduced, there is some crayfish activity in the warmer summer months, so we advise you to be prepared and adjust your choice of bait accordingly.  Wrap your boilies well and/ or with tiger nuts or include some artificial hookbaits and mesh or plastic heatshrink tubing to coat your boilies in your tackle just in case they are active during your visit.

Catch reports give a good indication of the average fish sizes in the lake. This one from 3 anglers in july 2018: 35 fish, including 2 x 40s, 14 x 30s, 16 x 20s and 2 catfish to 8

There are no set swims at Lords Lake and anglers are free to fish from wherever they like. The vast majority choose the chalet swim, where they can make use of the facilities without having to reel in.

The chalet swim has plenty of room for 3 bivvy set-ups and the whole of the lake is accessible from here.

Because the chalet swim is so convenient, very few anglers choose to fish from the lake’s other banks, so you should take this into account when deciding what tactics to use and what features to fish to.
