Venue information

Four well stocked, spring fed lakes and a full range of accommodation from a 17th Century Devon long house, The Farm House, that can sleep up to 16, to a small cottage, Lake Cottage, that can sleep up to four. In total, there are four other cottages and a timber lodge and in addition to the fishing, there is an outdoor swimming pool, Games barn, spa, outdoor play area, tennis court and small gym.

South Farm is located on the edge of the beautiful Blackdown Hills, yet only 15 minutes drive from Honiton or Junction 28 of the M5 and is surrounded by its own 43 acres with the most magnificent distant views, on a clear day, as far as Exmoor.

The lakes are  naturally spring fed from the adjoining hills, which ensures a fine stock of hard fighting carp some in excess of 20lb, chub in excess of 6lb plus specimen roach, tench, silver bream, crucian carp and perch all in prime condition.

Each lake has its own characteristics as follows:



This is our speciman lake where the larger carp hang out. Even so, it is still possible to catch up to twenty fish a day. As well as Mirrors, Leather, Koi , Common, and Ghost Carp there are also specimen Chub, Perch Tench and Roach.

Due to the size and quality of the fish, we do not allow keep nets on this lake.

Fishing is restricted to resident only.




This is an ideal small lake for children looking to fish in a safe and comfortable environment where the fishing is not too difficult and very rewarding.

A good confidence booster to ensure your children will develop the skills necessary to ensure success on more challenging waters, whilst appreciating the most magnificent surroundings and distant views.

The fish are predominantly common and mirror carp up to four pounds, together with some roach and silver bream.



This is our largest lake with mostly common and mirror carp up to the mid teens but predominantly in the 8oz to 6lb range.

Ideal for match type fishing and if you are happy to put in the effort, 100lb of fish can often be exceeded within a day.

Other fish include roach, perch and rainbow trout



This slightly more remote lake is nestled within a small copse and is ideal fro getting away from it all and fishing in total tranquillity.

We have recently added some crucian carp and silver bream to the existing stock of roach and carp.

There are also a  large number of crayfish so bring your nets along  and trap a few for  the evening barbecue.

Fishing in this lake is restricted to residents only.

Day ticket fishing is available on Upper and Lower Ram lakes at £7 per rod per day and is restricted to a maximum of only six  per day.

If you are a resident, you can fish all the lakes for free.

Please contact Gary or Debbie Spencer on 01823 681078 or at to book your fishing and accommodation.
