  • Carps Well. Centuries old west Warwickshire lake for sale

    Hi guys.

    I don't fish myself but for the past 15 years have owned a very pretty, centuries old carp lake across the road from my house in semi-rural west Warwickshire.

    It comprises about 1.25 acres of water in about 2.5 acres of land and is surrounded by a 0.8 acre lawned area ( including hard standing for about 8 cars – accessed via a steel field gate off the adjoining road ) on one side and mature trees / neighbouring fields on three other sides.

    I have allowed a few people to fish there over the years but have used the property primarily for my own private enjoyment rather than as a commercial venture.

    The carp ( in excellent condition and with a couple in double figures ) breed and feed freely in the natural, spring-fed waters and there is a resident catfish ( I haven't heard of it being caught for a couple of years ) which should now be in excess of 30 lbs along with a small number of other fish species.

    Despite the claims made by some estate agents there doesn't seem to be an obvious place to advertise and market such specialist properties and a friend of mine suggested trying the better on-line fishing forums.

    One of my brothers has piggy-backed a web page with full details onto his own web site and the URL is Carps Well for sale

    Do get in touch if you are interested or you know of someone who might be.

      Thanks but I've already spoken to them. They claim to be the biggest sellers of fishing lakes in the UK but have no comparable lakes for sale on their books so there would appear to be no ready market for such things and I see no point in paying their commission ( plus advertising ) when I can do the advertising myself.

            Fishing lake for sale

            I've been quite surprised by the interest that I've had so far and have concluded that, whilst there is no obvious market place for land and fishing lake for sale, there is clearly quite a bit of demand. Another thing that has surprised me is how quickly Google has trawled the fishing forums and picked up keywords like fishing lake for sale amd Midlands Warwickshire because it was coming up on searches after just a few days.

                I doubt you will get a response.
