The Lake

Barn View lake is a family run business. We had the lake dug and built-in 2006-2008 which is owned by husband and wife Ken and Lorraine and now managed by their daughter Helen and her partner Colin who both have many years of experience in the carp industry and every aspect of running a lake.
​The lake is around 3 and 3/4 acres and was originally dug deep to optimise the fish and their sizes which has grown on some jewels in its crown already.
The lake has a soft clay bed with very little silt, many deep holes some dropping to 4 meters and a very deep bank riverside. The average depth is 3 metres deep, the water is clay coloured and all the fish have changed colour within their environment to become lovely bars of gold. 

The lake has 4 large swims 2 at either end of the lake and a small swim in the middle ideal as a day swim.

There is an aeration system that runs in the middle of the lake, aerating oxygen to all the lake contributing all round to the health of the lake and the fish supporting their enviroment to help their growth.
