We have been having a good think about the future and regrettably we have come to the conclusion that our personal commitments are such that we will be unable to manage Villa Pond this year and it will therefore remain closed.

We know that this will disappoint a number of people and we will miss chatting to all of our fishing friends. We are sorry that we have had to come to this conclusion and if anything changes we will post it on this website.

Plan B ?

We  have been giving some thought about next year and one of the ideas is to open as a private fishing club.

We would open on 1st April for 8 months closing at the end of November.

We would have a virtual  membership system which means that everything would be on email and we would want a photograph of every member so that we could check that bona fide members were fishing on our regular visits.

Members would also have to email us when they were fishing.

The gate would have a combination lock and we would regularly change the combination; members being informed of the new number so you would let yourself in and out.

We would look after the pond in the way that we have done in the past so no working parties as in other clubs.

The rules would remain the same with the exception that night fishing would be allowed.

The annual membership fee would be £150.

We would need a minimum number to make this work so if you are interested please let us know.


Closed for winter

Apologies for not posting this earlier but our website had an electronic glitch.

We are now closed for winter.

A big thank you to all of our customers this year we hope that you have enjoyed good fishing in delightful surroundings.

At this point we usually say that we look forward to seeing all of you next year but we have a lot of family and other commitments coming up in the foreseeable future and we are assessing whether it’s going to be practical for us to open at all next year.

September up-date.

Some good fish banked in the last couple of months with plenty of doubles.

This one was enticed at the car park end  of the pond. Where Mrs H has been recently busy with her secateurs and cleared several pegs of obstructions. The middle of the pond seems to be fishing well at the moment, perhaps the fish have learned that eating tempting bait in the margins is a hazardous business.

Closed on Monday 8th September.

We are closed on Monday 8th September for an invitation only charity event.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

July update.

Each year we have a “Tench day” when almost every fish to come out is a tench and then no more for the rest of the year. If you were hoping to hit this day….. sorry you have missed it!

The pond is fishing well with plenty of double figure fish being banked. Most carp coming out at the moment seem to be over 5lbs with plenty of double figures and 15lb fish are regularly banked.

The bigger fish seem to get caught later in the season and this month has seen a 20lb and a 28lb mirror. We haven’t seen “The General” out of the water for the last couple of seasons so we don’t know what he weighs at the moment but he must be well into the 30’s.

Some photographs are below……..

We are opening on Tuesday 15th April.

The pond has survived the winter period very well again with an incredibly low mortality rate and the fish have been visible on the surface over the last few days. We have been giving them an occasional light feed over the winter period so they should be fighting fit.

We look forward to seeing you there in the near future…… the price remains at £6 per day or part day.

Tight lines!

Winter closing.

Our last day is Sunday 3rd November.


We will be opening again in spring when the water gets warmer and the carp start to feed properly. In the meantime we will be  feeding the fish so that they can put on weight for the winter period. We, of course will be endeavouring not to put on weight over winter although sitting in front of a blazing fire with fishing magazines and a packet of bourbon creams (which is what I am doing as I write this) isn’t exactly good for the waistline. I feel a batch of new year resolutions coming on. ….. but let’s wait for the new year!

In the last two years our mortality rate (the fish……not us!) has been almost negligible so we must be doing something right. We close over winter because feeding-up carp in this period with high protein bait is a recipe for disaster because languid fish don’t digest their food properly and it ferments in their stomach often resulting in death.  We will slow down with the feed after the first couple of proper frosts followed by some regular, light feeding with low protein food for the silver fish and any carp that fancy a light snack.

It’s been an excellent season with very few problems a good number of excellent fish caught and a successful charity day, so a big thank you to all of our customers.

Have a good Christmas and a Happy New year we look forward to seeing you all next spring.

A busy month so far.

Carp 13.7.13Fish caught to date include a 25lb  and several others over 20lb.

Fish between 15lb and 18lb have been regularly banked and 5lb to 15lb now seem to be our standard fish.

Rudd also seem to be fairly prolific at the moment with one of our  customers catching nothing but them all day?


July up-date.

Plenty of doubles banked over the last few weeks with the top fish weighing-in at 25lbs.
