We have two Coarse Fishing Lakes, Admiral Lake and Ponder Lake.

Each lake extends to over an acre and both are nestled within grounds teeming with wildlife. It is quite simply a wonderful place to unwind, relax and enjoy!

Well stocked lakes with various species, Common and Mirror Carp, Roach & Rudd.

Night fishing can be arranged from dusk until dawn but must be booked in advance.

You must hold a valid fishing licence (which can be purchased at the local Post Office) to fish at Higher Shorston.  You must also have the correct equipment.  We are happy to give anyone a quick lesson and have a couple of spare fishing rods, nets and carp mats that you can borrow.  We are not experts but do love to fish!
