Stopped here for a light lunch and we were thrilled with what we found. Beautifully kept. Perfect setting. The food was superb, and very efficiently served by great staff. We will be back.
(Can't vouch for the fishing, but there were certainly plenty of people having a go!)

Fly fished here a few times now & always had an excellent day, there's some big fish in here to tempt you, also a smaller lake for kids to fish, great tackle shop with advice on flies, rods, clothing & techniques etc to try, also a brilliant cafe to get hot or cold food & drinks which is well appreciated. Great time, every time !! TripAdvisor-logo
