Exclusive Carp fishing

Quietly tucked away, Churn Pool is arguably the most exclusive bookable venue on the Cotswold Water Park.


The fishery operates on an ‘exclusive use’ basis, the lake is bookable to groups of no more than 5 anglers at a time.

When you come in, you can shut the gate behind you, forget your worries and fish in peace.

The fishing here as it should be, quiet, undisturbed and challenging.

The venue is ideal for groups of anglers, families and friends.

We also welcome friendly dogs, but please do clean up after them.


Churn Pool has a good head of carp, with fish to over 40lb and plenty of doubles and 20lb+ fish.  Some of the fish in the lake are over 30 years old, proper ‘Cotswold Carp’!

There is a good mix of commons, mirrors and linears, with many heavily scaled, very distinctive fish.

The fishing should not be described as easy, neither is it ridiculously hard. Most anglers describe it as ‘pleasently challenging’! Churn Pool is definately not a ‘runs’ water, all captures have to be hard earnt.

Anglers that think about the fishing and bait application will do well.  The fish arent particuarly rig shy, but stealth is of the essence. In the warmer months especially, the fish spend a lot of the time in the margins, and great fun can be had sat behind one rod on a clear marginal shelf.


When booking the lake, you have full use of the lake and its facilities.

There is a proper toilet block with small kitchen area , fridge, freezer, large gas BBQ, and you will have the use of the decking, table and chairs in front of the Lodge.

The use of the Lodge is not included in the price of your booking, but can be hired for a small extra charge.

Although we are best known for our excellent Carp fishing, we also have specimen fish of many species.

Pike have been caught in excess of 30lb, Roach 2lb 12oz+, Perch 3lb+ and Bream well into double figures, all of which you are welcome to fish for.
