Nice picturesque pool to yourself , need good knees for the steep wooden steps up and down , could do with some storage for tackle, nice friendly dog Carlos likes to visit.

Accommodation is not bad the kitchen is a bit pokey, caught my first wye barbels to just over 8lb and some 4lb plus chub , all nice scale perfect fish . Look in the guest book for some good fishing info if you go , some good sized barbel have been caught, the pool does have a couple of snags that are drawn in the guest book , but never lost a fish to them and being able to sneak out early doors and fish into darkness is a plus facor, avoided the fishing widow syndrome too much, plenty of kingfishers zooming up and down as well , good place to social distance fish as only used by those staying at the cottage .
