Felix Farm 'Rainbow' rowing boats are probably some of the safest and most stable small boats available. The boats are very popular and available on the day for a half or a full day's fishing for one or two anglers. Moored to one of the buoys located around the lake, the boats give access to a variety of swims of various depths. NB No drifting allowed, boats must be moored to a buoy whilst fishing.

Casting Jetty

A recent addition to the lake is the 12m long casting jetty. This extension to the boat jetty gives novices and tutors the opportunity to practice casting on water, rather than on grass and experience the true effect that water has on the cast line. .


The lake is regularly stocked with high quality rainbow blue and brown trout, minimum stocking size from 2lb to double figures. There are many mature fish wary enough to test your skills. The lake is fished only on a catch and retain basis except for browns or blues, which must be handled carefully, unhooked in the water and released.
