Baby sitters

Baby sitting geese

Our 30 year old white geese are acting as baby sitters this year for 2 Canadian goslings.  Never far away they keep a look out and shepherd them away from danger.

Good Roach fishing…..

‘A good fisherman could catch 100lb Roach in an afternoon’: a recent guest reported after enjoying a weeks holiday in the Fisherman’s Lodge. Fishing in the evenings and some afternoons he netted a total of 102lb Roach and 19 Carp weighing up to 6lb each.

Fishing well……

Feedback from recent guests:

“My husband and 9 year old Son had a wonderful stay at Fisherman’s Lodge over the May bank holiday.
Their main reason for the stay was to use the fishing lake and they not disappointed at the amount of carp they caught.
Sitting in a bivvy on a Sunday morning watching the wildlife was not a chore!  The quaint cottage sits in beautiful gardens overlooking the lake and the friendly dogs love a fuss.

Fisherman’s Lodge is set in a beautiful part of East Anglia.  My husband and son can’t wait for their next fishing trip at Rockells Farm.”
