Further Information
One of the many unspoilt features of the Castle is our lake. Covering approximately 3.5 acres, the lake is naturally stocked with Bream, Perch and Carp, and we welcome responsible Fishermen - both young and younger - using only barbless hooks. We ask that fishermen under the age of 14 are accompanied and kept under close care at all times. Please read our Do's and Don’ts below for a list of the few things we ask of our fishermen, helping us keep the Castle Lake as beautiful and unspoilt as it is today.

In case of alteration, please check prices, opening times and any specific important information before booking or visiting
