Beautiful Fishing Lakes
based in Patney, Wiltshire

The Lakes

Woodside lakes is located in the beautiful Pewsey Vale, Patney, Wiltshire – A three acre specimen carp lake, 5 acre Match/Pleasure lake and a 3 acre stock pond. We are situated between Swindon and Salisbury easily accessible from the M4 and A303. Please use postcode: SN10 3RB or if using Google Maps, please simply use: Woodside Lakes.

A little bit of History and information: In 2011 the lakes were dug on wet spring fed ground being difficult to farm and with Richards love of fishing it became an obvious farm diversification. The lakes were left for a year after being dug and was then stocked in 2012. 5000 trees were planted too attract wildlife and provide cover as well as a 1000 meter otter fence to protect the fish and increase security.

  • "We first surveyed Woodside lakes as the owner wanted to maximise the fisheries potential. The developing stocks look great and are growing well. This tidy and secure fishery will improve every year as the owners hard work pays off."

  • "What a great complex, so peaceful and beautiful with the lakes and carp to compliment the surroundings. The owner obviously knows what he is doing and has spent nearly a decade maturing this into the fishery it is today. "
