This entitles a guest to fish for 24 hours at one of our four fishing pegs.
Our 1 acre lake is well stocked with still water fish, including the following types:
Carp, Hybrid Carp, Rudd, Golden Rudd, Barbel, Bream, Tench, Eel
...hey! watch out for the 'Monster of Melbourne'!

Please note: From time to time pond weed growth may impede the fishing experience. Whilst we accept that to anglers this is a challenge, a certain amount of oxygenating pond weed is vital for ecological balance. We endeavour to remove excessive pond weed where it is considered overly intrusive. Any influx in pond weed is deemed outside of our control and is subject to annual fluctuations in sunlight, nutrients, etc.
Fishing bait is not sold on-site and Acorn Glade does not offer fishing equipment hire.
