Got orange NG twin core 18-20 in my margin pole, only use it for snag pits but it’s great stuff 👍

They’re very basic, small electric kettle, small (4 cans of beer) fridge, bed. Toilet block with proper toilet just a short walk. Not been the shires so can’t compare but these are ok for a night or 2. Would prolly want more comforts for longer than that. Nice place, caretaker Tracie was very helpful, looking forward to it.

The shires are where the hobbits live on lord of the rings 🤣🙌

Are there numbers here to make this a match or should we just have a jolly old pee up?
I'm on the latter BTW ;)

Think I'm gonna have to pass on this one, 5 ½ hours 280 miles, I'm a glutton for punishment but even I have to draw the line. Look forward to reading and seeing what goes on.

To book a pod/swim on pond 1 (specimen pond) you need to contact Tom or Becky direct on 07530154187

There's no price for camping over the weekend

If I book a pod can I enter the mini matches as I’m not interested in speci fishing just looking at best accommodation options

Yes, but I suspect you'd also have to pay for pond 1 as well.
I'm sure you can book the glamping lodges separately though

Alas, we will not be able to make it. We will be in warmer climes somewhere in Croatia driving North back through Europe.
A live stream of the match would be cool though lol.

Not really interested in the match fishing bit Dave, but I’m on sabbatical Apr-Jun so would love to come and help out somehow if possible.
