The main fishing lake, has an excellent reputation for fishing, due its variety of fish. Especially for the Bream. As well as the choice of individual, private, fishing pegs on the main lake there is also a new grassed peninsular, ideal for customers that don’t do well with steps or for couples that want to fish together. The lake has also been restocked and is full of Bream, Carp, Perch, Rudd, Tench, Roach, Barbel, Pike, Skimmers & even Eels.
The Nursery lake is stocked with Carp, Tench & Golden Orfe and is easy fishing for beginners.
A great place for Bird watchers, besides the wild ducks, moorhens, geese, king fishers and swans. Watch out for the owls, bird of prey and the parakeets (escapees from the local parrot zoo). Not to forget the wild deer that wander in from time to time as Grooby’s Pit is surrounded by flat countryside, ideal for cyclists & walkers.
If arriving via Boston, please use the A52 towards Skegness turning Left onto the B1195 at Wainfleet St Mary, following the road through to Thorpe St Peter. After passing the church on your right hand side, turn Left to Thorpe Culvert railway station. Go over the crossing & Turn Right. We are on the left hand side. The back roads from Boston using a sat nav are quicker but are not suitable for caravans or some cars (very bumpy).
