Birch Grove is approximately 5 acres in size and features a smooth, silty bottom, bloodworm beds, overhanging trees, lily pads, reedbeds, and deep margins.
The water is around 13ft deep with deep margins sprinkled with lily beds and overhanging trees. The pegs are comfortable, comprising the Compound and the Main Boards (both often used as a double swim by visitors to ensure the lake is fished efficiently), and the middle swim, known as the Helipad. In addition, there is a smaller swim, known as Tag’s Swim at the far end of the lake, predominately a stalking peg, but feel free to bivvy up in this swim in the field (not on the boards) There is also the day-fishing swim known as Bouncing Bobbins on the opposite side of the lake (opposite the Compound Swim) which can only be accessed by boat. This swim is ideal for margin fishing or close-water fishing but not suitable for bivvying up.
The Lodge Swim can be fished by visiting anglers, by agreement among themselves, as long as it is understood that it restricts the fishing from the Compound.
The lodge itself provides great facilities for you to take advantage of whilst on your session including hob & oven, fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and all pots, pans, mugs & utensils. not forgetting a separate toilet, shower room, dinning area for four people, outside seating area & charcoal BBQ.
Birch Grove can be booked weekly throughout the summer months of June to October, for up to a maximum of four anglers (however, three would be the optimum number)
During the winter months of November to April we operate a small syndicate - a waiting list is in operation to join.
Birch Grove is currently home to over 100 fish, with half a dozen thirties, a good head of twenties, and plenty of upper doubles (some of these from our most recent stocking are putting on weight and looking real stunners)
