Stanton Harcourt

Price £295

1st June-31st May

13 Acres

12 Swims

85-90 Carp

Lake record 42lb



Stanton Harcourt opened in the summer of 2015. The venue boasts at least twenty stunning carp over 30lb up to a current lake record of 42lb+, caught in October 2020.

Truth be told though, this venue is so much more than pounds and ounces. The carp are old and among them are a wide array of mirrors; dumpy ones, leathery ones, linears and scaly ones plus some beautiful woodcarving commons to over 30lb! In the winter of 2016/17 we added a handful of hand picked fish to compliment the existing stock and since then, we’ve continued to add a few fish each winter to ensure a bright future for the lake and help replace the old originals that have unfortunately perished. The latest addition were 21 of Priory Fisheries’ finest C5’s which were stocked in January 2021.

The friendly syndicate ensures a vibrant social scene around the lake with no shortage of tea and biscuits consumed! Although not what you would classify as a classic winter water, the lake does have good winter form. With gin-clear water, depths varying from 4-12ft, reed beds, gravel humps and inviting silt gullies, the lake has something for everyone and all of the swims command a good amount of water.

Due to high demand, the waiting lists for this venue are currently closed until further notice.
