Fishing at Milton Brook
For those of you who prefer the peace and tranquility of the lakeside, we offer free fishing to all our guests, on the production of a valid EA license. The stock pond has a variety of specimen fish, including rudd, roach, tench, bream and carp, ranging from 2lbs to 16lbs. It is ideal for beginners and the experienced alike, but we ask that novices are supervised for the well being of the fish. The bait we recommend is either maggots or bread. The welfare of our fish is our primary concern, therefore we kindly ask if guests could use barbless hooks and refrain from using keepnets. Please contact us in advance if you would like to add this to your holiday. Guests are required to bring their own equipment with them.
