We re open on Wednesday 13th May - please book in advance

Good Morning to you all and at last it is a good morning.

We have had confirmation that we are allowed to reopen on Wednesday 13th May.

The Angling Trust has published some useful guidance for anglers and so you can check the following link for your piece of mind here.

Please book your place in advance so that we can manage numbers - this is the link for bookings. Here you can find the booking calendar which will tell you how many spaces are available. If you absolutely cannot make a booking online please ring the landline (01398 351292) and leave all the relevant details including an email address. I will pick these up once a day.

Bookings will be confirmed once payment has been received - all payments need to be by BACs or credit card as cash is considered a potential contaminate.. Please do not travel unless your booking has been confirmed. Please also note that only those fishing are able to attend site - no non fishing guests. .

To simplify the system we have had to reduce the number of fishing ticket options as below. Please click on the relevant choice to pay by card.

Day Ticket - Normal £31 (5 fish from the normal lakes)

Day Ticket - Specimen £46 (4 fish from the specimen lake)

Day Ticket - Rover £36 (4 fish with a maximum of 2 from the speciment lake)

Bank details for BACs payments are:-

Acc Name: Bellbrook, 
Acc No: 00064505, 
Sort Code: 20-85-26

To reduce risk as much as possible the fishing lodge will be closed (including the outside sitting area on deck). All fishing returns need to be completed by email when you get home please - you will need to guestimate weights.

The toilet will be open and has hand sanitiser for your use before and after using the facilities. Please bring your own gloves if you prefer to use them.

Please do not congregate in the carpark or anywhere else and observe the Angling Trust's guidance of 15m separation while fishing. At Bellbrook this roughly translates to one person per bench or obvious swim. I will be monitoring this and "helping" where I feel this isn't being observed. They also advise no equipment sharing for obvious reasons - maybe bring your own chair and avoid our benches.

Please DO NOT come if you have any symptoms of Covid -19 OR are simply feeling under the weather.

Right - I'd better go and put some fish in the lakes.
