Enjoy some relaxed fishing in well-stocked private lake

As the open fishing season gets underway you could be enjoying fishing at a private lake, nestled on a country estate amid the tranquil beauty of the Colne Valley.

Our two-acre manmade lake at Wakes Hall Lodges, Essex, is well stocked with carp and rudd and has plenty of places for keen fishermen and women to set up their tackle.

When the fishing day is over you can relax at your luxury lodge, just metres from the lake, in your own private hot tub and enjoy the long summer evenings and appreciate the breathtaking scenery.

And of course if you, or your travelling companions, don’t want to spend the whole time fishing there are ample opportunities for getting back to nature with walking, jogging, cycling or horse riding and every lodge also has a barbecue so you can cook and eat outside.

Owners Nick and Clare Percival commented: “Since we launched the lodges we have had a lot of people take advantage of the fishing facility and enjoy many relaxed hours at the edge of the lake.

“The lodges are the perfect place, not just for fishing but for spending some quality family time together, a real home from home with plenty to do literally right on your doorstep and lots of places to visit just a short drive away.”

Wakes Hall Lodges offer luxury one or two-bedroom holiday accommodation with fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms boasting a free-standing bath and walk-in waterfall shower. They provide a perfect getaway at any time of the year and also boast flat screen television, a music system and WiFi.

Our lodges have recently been awarded a prestigious five-star AA self-catering rating which means accommodation has exceptional and outstanding levels of comfort throughout.

To fish on the private lake at the lodges you need to have a fishing licence and to bring your own fishing equipment.
