The perfect place for a spot of tranquil fishing

Across the county there are some great fishing locations for the beginner angler through to the seasoned fisherman, with the National Angling Championships often being held in the Lincolnshire Fens.

Populated with a wide variety of fish, from pike to bream and zander to tench, our waterways are always a popular choice for fishing enthusiasts.

When you stay in one of our shepherd huts, the Cross Keys lakes offer the opportunity for all night fishing, with the lakes being discreetly lit after dark. Each of our huts has its own fishing swim (jetty) down to the lakeside and guests are welcome to fish. We ask that guests wishing to do so, hold a valid fishing licence, which they will be asked to produce on arrival.

Not too far from Cross Keys, near Donington and Spalding, you will find Donington Brick Pit, a well-established pit offering float fishing only. The pit is home to big bream and tench to target, as well as chub, roach and carp.

Our neighbours at Lakeside Farm Fishing allow the usual bait of maggots and worms etc., but do not permit floating bread bait in order to protect their population of geese and ducks.
