Information

Note: When booking Horcott Lake please be aware that your ticket is only valid to fish Horcott Lake. Tickets are not transferable and don’t allow you to move and fish Horcott Tench Lake. You must book Horcott Tench Lake if you wish to fish that lake.

Horcott Lake offers carp fishing in beautiful surroundings for anglers of all abilities. Situated just outside Fairford, Gloucestershire, the main lake is a typical Cotswold gravel pit that’s Gin clear, 5ft-6ft in-depth with lots of bars, gullies and weed beds.

Our Carp and Tench lakes have been restocked over the last season making it a prolific fishery with secure parking.

Horcott is also great if you’re angling for Tench and Bream, with plenty of Roach, Rudd, Perch and some very large Pike too.
