May is always a blooming marvellous time of year at Kingslakes residential fishing holiday resort, as all the Spring flowers and trees are in full bloom, the sun shines (well most of the time!), and the temperatures start to rise into the late twenties on those precious warm sunny days, that we do get here in Devon, honest!
One of our guests, Shaun Catterick particularly enjoyed the wall to wall sunshine over the Whitsun May Bank Holiday Weekend, and was even happy with his catch, reeling in a 6 pound Tench out of Jenny Wren lake at Kingslakes, which weight wise in “Tench Terms” is a decent sized fish.
Jenny Wren is what we used to call Tench Lake, positioned just in front of the single storey lodges and is easily accessible with mown grass paths around the edge. The lake extends to around three quarters of an acre with varying depths and has an island towards one end. The lake contains good numbers of Crucian carp and some good sized tench, up to 8lbs in weight.
There are six other fully stocked lakes at Kingslakes, offering fisher folk the opportunity to catch and release specimen carp, eel, roach, bream, rudd, chub, silver fish, crucian carp and rainbow trout, the latter of which can be caught and used on the BBQ or cooked in one of our self-catering luxury lodges or cottages.
Away from fishing there has been a lot of significant improvements to the facilities at Kingslakes in 2018, so there is plenty to do whether or not you are into fishing, as there is plenty of room for woodland walks in Kingslakes 40 acre site, a kids play area, which includes swings, climbing net, sandpit and a large wooden play castle. There is also a giant sized outdoor chess set, games room and a clubhouse that contains a large lounge area, shop and fully stocked licenced bar.
