Potentially, it's a nice little spot, about an acre but it is a bit bare. Went for a look around it once. It is a fairly new water, open 12 months maybe... has an island at either end and one about 1/3 of the way up the pond (from the car park end) in between each of those. He runs the matches on a one peg off one peg on basis, so that all pegs get a breather from match to match and so that anglers have more space, meaning the pond gets generally less hammered, which is a good idea. Mind you, they guy that manages it was the fishery manager at woodlands i think...or somewhere like that so he knows his stuff.
The pegs are comfortable platforms made from a specially shipped in material and are all level and spacious (probably about 1.25m if i remember correctly). I would recommend trying pellet for the carp because as it is not that old a fishery so the carp may still have a taste for them. Although the usual corn, meat etc will work for them with maggots and casters bagging the silvers. Unsure what bait bans he has in force and there are the usual rules on Barbless hooks etc.
If i am not mistaken, there was a small cabin tackle shop/cafe when we went too. But don't know if there still is or not.
