No, I keep looking at their specimen lake but it just seems a step too far. The place its self seems a great set up though from what you read so I am sure you won't be disappointed, I follow their facebook page mainly for the pictures of the food :ROFLMAO:.

Stayed there for a week last year in our caravan. Pitches very close together. Fished Foundry it’s full of fish, found paste the best bait. The food in the restaurant is wonderful and the staff are brilliant. We are in there every day, great breakfast and evening meals were to die for. Not to expensive as well

Try the pegs on the far bank 17-18. And fish to the shadow of the bridge. This is about 9m. Feed micro pellets via a small toss pot and fish expander, maggot or paste on the hook. We had a match recently and 40lbs won it with mainly carp and bream caught

Will add, there is no need to fish too heavy either as there is a lack of snags. Would go no bigger than a 16 hook. If the carp and bream are off the ide average a pound or so and can be caught shallow on caster or maggot. I have booked a matched for the 22nd. Enjoy

When we were there earlier this year, not one fish was caught on the specimen lake over a good few days

cheers mate, would be useful. We also used to fish the pond at the bottom and the fish are bigger. The best peg used to be on the far side, it is still there but directly next to a cabin. Fish at 11 m for the deeper hole. Some huge tench frequent that peg
