South View Farm Fishery


South View coarse fishery consists of three spring fed lakes, set in an idyllic Devon valley.

Willow Pool ( top pond )
A natural pond with an island surrounded by a wide variety of established trees and vegetation. The pond is stocked with carp to almost 30 lbs. A good head of tench, perch, rudd and roach.

Kingfisher Pond ( middle pond )
Large population of carp including ghosties. Many roach, perch and tench and some gudgeon.

Heron pond ( bottom pond )
Planned for disabled access and children in mind, having flat banks, making it ideal for juveniles and newcomers learning their sport . Has the widest range of species with a higher percentage of smaller fish.
Set in six acres, all the waters have regularly produced good catches since they were opened to day ticket anglers over 15 years ago.

This is a mixed fishery where the pleasure angler and the matchman alike can bag up. When the lakes are fishing well (and they usually are) 50 - 150 lbs in a day is possible. Pleasure bags of 20 lbs plus are commonplace. Through the winter months, quality roach fishing is supplemented by bonus carp and tench. It is genuinely a water for all seasons.

Many anglers have caught their biggest ever fish, or had their best ever total catch in a day, however, most people come to South View (and keep coming back year after year) because of the atmosphere.
