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.

    The owners were very nice & friendly, there was only going to be one other van on so we could choose where we parked , we were wanting a later check out and when i asked no problem at all, and only for a very small sum. This of course was on a fishing site, not that we were going to do any , but the site was local to what we had planned to do. We knew that there was no showers on site, but only toilets, being in a caravan this was no bother to us at all.

    Disliked: 

    There was a fishing match on, so we did get disturbed by the anglers slamming their car doors in the morning. The car noise on the road at times. This would not deter us from going back though.

From the manager...

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
