LAKES & CAMPSITE
As previously mentioned the lakes and campsite extend to approximately 8.5 acres (subject to survey), please find plan enclosed. Access is provided along a tarmac driveway from the highway leading through a metal gate and along side the fresh water brook which runs the entire length of the property. There are two main lakes, one named West Stow Lake and the other Glebe Lake, with a pathway leading around the periphery. Each lake has a central island. The lakes are spring fed with two brooks flowing through the property eventually entering the River Lark. To the Southern boundary, the property enjoys approximately 280 yards frontage of River Lark with fishing rights. A public footpath runs along the river. Once run as a commercial fishery the premises are now utilised as a camping and caravan site with 5 hard standing pitches with electric hook up and a club house. We understand the lakes are extremely well stocked with domestic species having previously being stocked with trout (which are no longer stocked).
