Come and enjoy some quality time at our family run fishery and farm. Whether you are a keen angler or occasional fishing person or even just looking for a relaxing break in the beautiful Sussex countryside, this will be the place for you. We even have facilities for wheelchair users and the less able, as one of the owners is a wheelchair user. Please note there is wifi available (usb ports in hut and kitchen unit). The phone signal is not very good for some networks except at the top of the hill.
There are 3 lakes (all spring fed). One is the original fishing lake, with some large common and mirror carp plus perch and grass carp, The second is our newly built (2018/19) large lake, which has less fish and is maturing nicely. This is stocked with carp, golden and blue orfe, green and golden tench, chub, roach, rudd and gudgeon. Fabulous views to the South Downs from here. At the very top is a natural 'wild swimming' pool for those adventurous enough.
Fishing is available by the day 8am - dusk and by night 9pm/dusk to 8am. Visiting anglers please see fees list. For night anglers there is a unit with toilet/shower and kitchen facilities inc fridge/freezer, hob and microwave. All anglers must show a current fishing licence and abide by our rules (copy at end of web page or sent on booking or by request).
The Fisherman's hut has a minimum 2 night booking, has most mod cons although you will have a short walk to the showers and toilets unit. (There is a small tented 'portaloo' right outside the hut for those 'caught short' moments).
Dogs are allowed but must be kept on leads around the lakes and farm. There is usually a an empty field for excercising but please clear up after them! In addition and for ramblers and hikers, there are several public footpaths leading to Buxted, Rotherfield and beyond. Pick up can be arranged to/from station if required.
For outside refreshment, Hadlow Down has a very 'locals' type pub, and Buxted has 2 very good pub/restaurants, (The White Hart and The Buxted Inn) as does High Hurstwood (The Hurstwood). For those wanting 'posh' or just to walk, there is Buxted Park, on the outskirts of Buxted, off the A272.
Lewes is just a 20 min drive; Brighton 30 mins; Eastbourne 35 mins and Tunbridge Wells 20 mins. For local shopping Crowborough (10 mins drive) Uckfield (10 mins) and Heathfield (10 mins) are very good. London is around 1 hour by train from Crowborough or Buxted or 45 mins from Tunbridge Wells main line stations.
