Each Primrose Cottage overlooks our well stocked carp lake. For private, free use of our guests only, it’s a wonderful place to spend the day fishing, watching the wildlife or simply soaking up the views across the beautiful Otter Valley. Order a picnic basket from the farmhouse and we’ll deliver this to you at lunchtime.
The lake houses mature mirror and common carp. The fish are in perfect condition and weights vary from between 10 and 20 pounds. This is a catch and release, barbless hooks only lake, so please be gentle with your catches returning as quickly as possible after the catch. Please copy us on pictures if you are successful!
If you forget an essential part of your fishing kit, Otter Angling, an independent shop, is in Ottery St Mary, a short drive from the cottages.
No children under the age of 16 allowed unaccompanied by adults and no swimming or camping allowed.
