To Bivvy or Not? A Bit of Extra Comfort at Watersmeet

Watersmeet is the rarest of things…a 2 acre lake with lots of carp to 47lb AND really great lakeside accommodation included. Preparation for the 2014 season is well under way…

Firstly the updates – Having wi-fi & electric at each swim proved very popular in 2013 and with the 2014 season fast approaching, work in the house is well underway in preparation for our first guests. The 3 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen & conservatory have all been fully redecorated.

Although Watersmeet is great for families, we often have a group of 2 or 3 carp anglers who may (or may not) bivvy out a couple of nights but also want the added comfort of a house to relax in, spending a bit of time away from their rods chilling on the terrace with the BBQ fired-up or catching up with their favourite TV programmes & football matches on the 50 inch TV (with full Sky package).

Brothers-in-Law The 2 Daves did just that in May  fishing only the main lake mostly to the far margins but also stalking at times,  they had 35 Carp to 42lb 12oz. They said:

‘Had a fantastic time again as this is our 2nd year at Watersmeet. We landed 35 fish.’

Phillip Anderson spent a relaxing week with his Wife, 2 Sons & Parents, with  Phillip & Son James being Carp fishermen they bivvied out some nights  fishing the main lake & had 28 fish. They said:

‘Great venue, fantastic house. Excellent weeks fishing. 28 fish caught with lots of time out eating, drinking & visiting places.’

Don & Martin in August made the most of their stay at Watersmeet by going out & about with their wives during the day & fishing  both lakes late afternoons & evenings,  using the small lake for some fun coarse fishing & catching 17 Carp from the main lake including a 42lb 5oz Mirror & a 32lb Common.  They said:

‘Excellent venue & facilities with plenty of space outside to either shelter from the sun or catch the late evening rays. Within easy reach of jardins, chateaus, tourist attractions, towns etc.’

There’s a wealth of places to visit in the area for all the Family, you can take a look at our points of interest page here.
