- Coarse fishery and match days in the scenic Vale of Belvoir
- Peaceful setting a mile from Elton and five miles from Belvoir Castle
- Well-stocked tackle shop on site
Fancy catching some Nottinghamshire coarse fishing? Bring your rod to Janson Fishery in Elton near Nottingham for angling days aplenty, in peaceful and green surroundings among the Vale of Belvoir Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Bag your day ticket to cast off in one – or both – of the two pleasure lakes: Tomo's Lake, with carp into double figures as well as barbel, tench, roach, rudd and golden orfe all to land, and Donut Pool, a mixed lake with ide, barbel and again carp up to double figures. There are regular match days at least twice a week too (booking for these is essential), and all types of anglers will find all types of kit and bait needed in the well-stocked tackle shop.
A café is open on match days for filled cobs, full English breakfasts and hot and cold drinks, to have indoors or at the outside seating area. Pick up self-catering supplies close by in Bingham: barbecues are allowed on site.
Janson Fishery has toilets and a chemical disposal facility, but please note there are no on-site showers.

Many thanks for your review, we are sorry that the Anglers disturbed your morning, we are a commercial fishery as well as a caravan park and unfortunately this will on occasions happen when we have fishing matches, and we do our best to keep it to a minimum. The road is a country road with only occasional traffic. We do hope to see you again. Many Thanks Linda
