Booking Terms and Conditions
Standard weekly bookings run from Saturday (1pm arrival), to the following Saturday (10am departure).
Provisional bookings should be made via our online booking enquiry, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm whether spaces are available. Once you receive confirmation that your date is available, we will send you a booking form and hold your place for 10 days. Within the 10 days, we will expect to receive your fully completed booking form along with the refundable deposit of £50 per person, or £300 for exclusive use of the lake (paid by bank transfer). Once we’ve received your booking form and refundable deposit, your booking is then secured and we will send you a confirmation letter with all the details. The final balance will need to be paid by bank transfer 8 weeks before your arrival date, once final payment is made you will receive an Information Pack which will have full directions to the lake, along with other important information.
To find out if the date you require is available, you can make a booking enquiry online:
Travel and Breakdown Insurance
We recommend that you have sufficient travel insurance for the period of your stay. This is a very cheap but invaluable cover for those unforeseen circumstances. Vehicle breakdown cover is also advisable, as motorway breakdowns are particularly expensive and the repatriation of your vehicle to the UK can cost hundreds, if not thousands of pounds. A number of companies provide this cover, including the AA, RAC and Green Flag.
We are not liable for any loss, delay or cancellations beyond our control. This is to include weather delays, port closures and employee strikes. Any junior anglers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times and we cannot be held responsible for their welfare or safety. We cannot guarantee that you will catch fish on your visit, but the fish are definitely in there!
No weapons of any description are allowed on our lake or grounds and you will be asked to leave if this rule is ignored.
There is a boat stored at the lake, but this is for the sole use of the bailiffs when necessary, e.g. for rescuing snagged fish and is strictly not to be used by anglers.
The swim at Pine Lodge (Peg 1) is reserved for anglers who have exclusively booked Pine Lodge - we would politely ask anglers to refrain from using this swim, unless they have booked Pine Lodge, or have booked the exclusive use of the whole lake.
We trust you will abide by our terms and conditions which are in force to ensure you have a safe and pleasant stay with us. A copy of these rules will be sent with your final booking confirmation, as well as displayed on our website.
The refundable deposit will be refunded two weeks after anglers have left the lake. If the fishery rules have been broken (including the lake and facilities not being left clean and tidy), the deposit may not be refunded.
Final Payment or Cancellation
The balance of payment for your holiday must be paid no later than 8 weeks prior to departure. If the balance is not received due to cancellation by the due date, we reserve the right to levy cancellation charges as noted below:
