Not A Great Holiday For Us - We Will Not Be Going Back
out de 2021
The lodge was adequate, but for what you pay I feel it's a little too expensive. It was clean, but not to a very high standard for what you pay for, as there were stains around the toilet base, the tops were dusty, and cobwebs in the kitchen. The bed is also extremely creaky.

On arrival, we were told we have constant hot water, the following morning we had a freezing cold shower, we mentioned this, and the reply was "there is a little hack, and you need to run the sink tap slowly whist showering". So the owner new about this and to us it would have made more sense to tell us this upon arrival instead of us letting us have a cold shower. However, to their credit a plumber did come out quick and fixed the problem.

My main reason for the 2-star review is down to the owner daily questioning my fishing ability as I caught the largest carp in the lake, but accidently damaged its fin. I have been fishing for over 35 years, and own lakes my self - so i know how to handle and land big carp. I did everything to the book, I even demonstrated to the owner how i handled the carp, and he replied I did everything correct. I don't know how its fin was damaged, all i know is i did everything correct. I'm even questioning now if it was me that damaged the fin, or if it was before i even caught it, or when playing the fish!

Later, I was then asked by the owner to watch a carp safety video, which I had already seen on other websites years before. Later in the holiday he then writes a blog post (not mentioning me) clearly aimed at me. At this point we felt it was best to pack up a leave a day early, as i was fed up with his constant questioning, and my wife was upset that he could write that towards me knowing what a good, experienced angler I am.

There is other thing as well that do not make sense to me. It’s about fish safety, if you catch a 30lb fish you are asked to keep it in a retainer all night, so the owner can view it and take photos the next morning. Carp of this size should only be in a retainer short period of time for their own welfare.

The fishery should provide waders, when handling large carp over 40lb its safer to keep them in the water. I questioned this, and he doesn’t want to do it.
They don't allow cars up to the lodge (apart from dropping off & picking up your luggage), due to the gravel making a noise, which is a fair point. But every 15 minutes the owner drives around at speed in his vehicle, making even more noise.
Most people will enjoy it here, it’s very safe & secure, the views are nice, the grounds are well kept with lots of wildlife, and there are certainly a lot of large fish to be caught.

But it was the owners’ actions that ruined it for us. I would have done better just returning a damaged fish back to the water without him knowing, as he questioned me on most times he came over to check up on us. However, I put fish safety before any conflicts. I know I did everything correct and it was just an unexplained accident that caused the damage.

If he could have accepted this, we would have stayed for our full holiday, and this review would have been four stars and not two.

Wonderful place!
ago de 2021 • Família
This was our first fishing holiday. Myself, my husband & our 13 year old son stayed in Egret lodge for 4 nights. We were welcomed by a very knowledgeable and friendly Judith, Mike visited us a couple of times & Dave (& Poppy the dog) visited daily. All very nice and approachable. Not forgetting Hewie the resident duck that liked to spend hours with us😊. On average we had 10 fish out a day ranging from 11lb to 21lb. The lodge was extremely clean and homely. We had a fabulous time here & would definitely recommend!

Four Brilliant Four Nights Fishing At Cherry Lakes
abr de 2021 • Família
Wow, what a place Cheery Lakes is.

One more night to go and already had over 20 carp smallest being 10lb and biggest which is a PB for Paige weighed 19lb15oz.

Fish are in amazing condition and the facilities are awesome. The log cabin has everything you could want even great Wi-Fi (😂😂) which my kids were really happy about.

Mike came round most mornings to check if everything was ok, and Dave the Bayliff was a great help, even getting in the rowing boat to help out with a fish that took my son in to a snag, happy son as we landed the fish at 15lb9oz.

Relaxation

What an amazing beautiful and peaceful lake cherry lake is. We are at the lake now as I'm writing this review. Just a complete wind down. Away from the hustle and bustle of my normal every day life. the middle of my second day of a three night stay. Broke my PB this morning at seven o'clock with a stunning 25 1/2lb common carp. The fishing is a little bit harder than my local fisheries as the carp are moving around the lake in large shoals, I hope to pick a few off as they move around. hopefully I can get them to stay in my swims for a few hours, And catch a few of the larger specimens. I would recommend having, borrowing or renting a bait boat to anyone who would like to fish this lake as it enables you to fish both banks, doubling your chance of success. The lodges are ok inside, the luxury about them is that they are placed on the lake with 24 hr fishing. The toaster doesn't work and I find it hard to work the oven. I set the fire alarm off twice already and the bed is a little uncomfortable. But I'm not here to make toast or try and cook like Heston and I hope I don't have a good nights sleep because it will mean I haven't caught anything through the night. No I won't be complaining to the manager there are plenty of restaurants around here. You can even get a take out meal delivered to the gate. I hope you find this review helpful. Tight lines guys and girls

Stunning place & a lake record to boot
jul de 2020 • Casais
WHAT A PLACE... Myself, my wife and another couple stayed in the Pochard Lodge, this is a double bedroom lodge with a private lake. The grounds and the accommodation are immaculate with everything you could possibly need. Mike and Judith are really friendly and happy to help with anything, Mike would pop in once a day to see how the fishing was going and check everything was ok. We had 5 rods out and had about 15 fish over 3 days, 14 of them between 10-22lb and then the lake monster weighing in at 33.8lb which was the lake record and my lifetime best. Mike weighed the fish a verified the catch, I also got a Cherry Lakes polo shirt With 30+ club on it, a really nice touch!

I could not recommend Cherry Lakes highly enough, thank you so much!!!!!

Superb place!
jan de 2020
Visited Cherry Lakes for the first time with my better half. As a non fisher I have to say the accommodation and the surroundings are absolutely stunning, and you can certainly see why this place is slightly more pricey than other places. The lodge was fully equipped with everything we needed for day to day living and was presented in a clean and exceptional way. The village is a short ten minute walk if you run low on provisions and the villagers are extremely friendly. The other half had an excellent time fishing also with seven takes and five actual catches, and a good tip is if you’re not catching speak with Mike or Dave and they can give you some pointers. All in all, highly recommend and shall be returning, next time for a full week!

Money Money Money!!

After saving up £900 for a trip to cherry lakes for just a 3 night stay I was disappointed but understanding that it had to be cancelled due to covid crisis.

I was called by owner and asked if I could move my dates back to October which I was unable to do so asked if we could re book for next year at similar time in may to which we had booked this year! Owner stated that was fine but he would require extra payment due to inflation which I thought was disgusting and this year's price should of been honoured considering it was not my choice to cancel original holiday!!

I then asked if I could receive refund for holiday as did not agree with being charged the extra and was told begrudgingly that I could have refund but minus a £50 admin fee! REALLY - £50 for them to process refund and press delete on system, what a joke!!

Owners attitude sucked throughout and will not be spending my hard earned cash for holiday here as you will see through all add ons eg bait, towel pack, hire etc all they care about is taking your money and have no customer service morals!

Fishing at the cottage
jan de 2020 • Família
This was my 6th visit to cherry lakes! From the 1st time we went we met Judith and mike owners and also Dave fishery manager, they are very nice people and very welcoming, stayed in log cabins and also the cottage! It’s very clean and a real nice place to relax and enjoy the fishing, well run and maintained the 3 of them always popped by to see how we was and if we needed anything! Nothing is to much trouble for them! My girlfriend loves it here as she gets to chill and use the hot tub! We try to visit this place twice a year, also had some stunning fish, today I got my pb of 32lb in cold January so well happy! Great place great people!! Thankyou all and see you soon

Incredible venue
jan de 2020 • Amigos
I have just spent the week at Pochards Lodge on Cherry Mere lake. The owners met us on arrival and were extremely welcoming and helpful. It was a 4 day visit with lots of bites throught the day and night. I caught a 23.8lb common on one of the days which I was very happy with considering the very cold weather.

Dave the fishery manager popped by daily to give tips and even walked round the lake and baited up a few areas for us near our spots.

The accommodation is fantastic. Smart tv, fully equiped kitchen and comfortable beds.

I'm not sure I'd want to fish anywhere else in the winter again and definitely want to return for the 70lb catfish.
