Fishing holidays in Cornwall

Our two magnificent fishing lakes are the bait that hooks in many of our visitors on a fishing holiday in Cornwall!

Trevella Lake has an abundance of carp, tench, bream, roach and rudd and Springfield Lake has more than 150 carp, including some at 24lb plus. Our resident fishing warden provides useful advice and guests can hire and buy equipment including rods, hooks, line and floats from our bait shop, by the entrance to Trevella Lake.

Trevella Course Fishing Lake

Trevella Lake

Trevella is the more mature of our two lakes, with a record catch weighing in at 27lb 12oz! This is an ideal water for all anglers with plenty of swims to choose from and water depths ranging from a few inches to about 16 feet.

The lake has an abundance of carp, tench, bream, roach and rudd. Varieties of carp include, mirror, common, linear and ghost, as well as a good head of crucian carp.


Springfield Course Fishing Lake

Springfield Lake

Over the last 19 years Springfield Lake has matured into a fine specimen lake. We now have 150 good size carp, including some that are 24lb plus and many in their late teens. Don’t forget, if you catch a big one get it weighed and let us know!
