ABOUT THIS VENUE

Westwoodside Lakes Idle Bank Road, Westwoodside, Doncaster, DN9 2BD (nearest post code) – Grid Ref: SE 724008

Note: There is a 2 rod limit on Westwoodside.

Westwoodside Lakes are mature, picturesque, mixed fisheries located on the border of South Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, just outside the village of Westwoodside. It comprises two lakes Mirlwyn the larger of the two & Colwyn which features a central island.

These lakes are both just under 2 acres each and are stuffed full of Carp, Pike, Silvers and the odd Tench. The carp go to over 20lb and specimin Pike. Both lakes are surrounded by Pine trees and are absolutely stunning. You can park behind your peg on most of the banks.

These are not your usual Ashfield Angling Club venues but they do fill a gap in our portfolio. They do contain specimen fish but they are the kind of place where you can go to catch a number of fish in a session.

Mirlwyn Lakes were developed by the landowner, the late Colin Snell, at the end of the nineties and was stocked with silver fish and carp.

The trees provide an abundance of shelter for anglers no matter what the weather and keep our bailiff(s) busy pruning and keeping them in good order.

General Directions

Postcode (for Satnav) – DN9 2BD (nearest available postcode – this postcode is on Cove Road – and the ponds are actually off the path from Idle Bank Road – approx.. 100 metres to path from this location)

Follow the main road from Doncaster to Haxey and Westwoodside (B1396). You will pass the commercial Bankend Fishery on the right hand side and then the North Lincolnshire sign on the left hand side. Take the next turning on the left which is directed towards Wroot and Sandtoft. This is Idle Bank Road – a straight bumpy road with a dike running alongside on the left hand side. Take the seventh bridge over the dike after the turning from the B 1396 (just before the 30 mph and uneven surface sign on the left) – there is also a sign to Westwoodside Fishery – a commercial fishery on the left off the lane before you arrive at our lakes. After crossing the dyke, follow the track – passing Westwoodside Fishery and arriving at Colwyn Lake the match Lake – just before the gate across the road at the end of the lane.

There is good car parking at our lakes and in some spots you can drive between the trees to park next to your peg. . The banks are suitable for the less able and a chemical toilet with hand washing facilities is provided during summer months. wws Some images of the Venue
