Carp Fishing Holidays From


Nestled on the outskirts of St Leonards Forest, Horsham, Menards Carp Fishery has flourished into a very mature and stunning venue. Menards was born in the late 90’s. Constructed on a 10 acre plot , since then many changes have been made and the lake has been joined to the stock pond and enlarged considerably resulting in a very unique looking fishery packed with features. Carpy overhangs are in abundance as well as 4 islands, lily pads, bays, bars and plateaus with variable depths to 12 feet. ONLY 12 SWIMS (8 singles and 4 doubles)

 We apply careful stock management at Menards and benefit from a variety of different strains. We now have a stock to be proud of. A large proportion of our fish were born here and the best of which are reaching well in excess of 35lbs. These young fish have complimented our original stock and in some cases have surpassed them in weight. Every year we see more and more fish topping the 30lb mark. We aim to continue in the same way for the future to see out the true potential

Day and night sessions are available for Members and Non Members by booking only. Holiday bookings are also available. The fishery is open 365 days a year, please see rules, fees and the holidays pages for more information. The venue is a very unique looking fishery packed with features, with carpy overhangs in abundance as well as 4 islands, lily pads, bays, bars and plateaus with variable depths to 12 feet and only 12 swims, 4 doubles and 8 singles.

 The setting is extremely tranquil, surrounded by mature oak trees. The lake is well maintained and complimented by gravel pathways and wood chipped swims. There are good facilities on site with flushing toilets, a wet room shower, tackle and bait shop with microwave and charging facilitys, take aways delivered to the gate from nearby Horsham
