Fed the fish and did the nature trail which was very enjoyable - had a snack in the restaurant - lovely home made cake ! Didn't fish as none of us like trout that much and you have to take your catch home!

We just saw the board advertising Cafe by the Lake and turned off in time. It's near Kilnsey Crag. We were debating what to have, when the owner suggested that scones were just out of the oven. Scrumptious. Welcoming owners. Lovely simple setting.

Hi we offer fly fishing on the main lakes but we also provide bait fishing on our family pond (the bait is sweetcorn or bread) because we want everyone who visits to catch a fish.
