Monkey lake

General

  • Day ticket fishery on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds
  • Two fishing lakes in a wildlife haven
  • A short walk from the village social club

Fisherfolk unite, for this is a splendid angling site. Tiny and scenic Alvingham Lakes is a day ticket fishery, just outside the Georgian market town of Louth on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. It has two fishing lakes crammed to the brim with common, mirror, grass and Crucian carp as well as roach, rudd, bream and tench – plus what the owners say are a few little surprises.

Folks flock here from all over for the fishing and peacefully scenic surrounds, on a friendly and calm site full of feathered inhabitants like heron, moorhens and doves. It's a basic but well-maintained site, with a toilet, handwashing facilities and barbecues (and dogs) allowed; there's also a self-service café for drinks and snacks in between angling or just wandering placidly around the scenic surrounds.

Louth is three miles away and a big supermarket within 15 minutes. And for drinks after a long day's fishing, the village social club is a short walk away.

  • Liked: 

    Our experience at Alvingham lakes was more like being welcomed into someone’s home rather than a business transaction. Terri and Ian are wonderful, friendly and helpful hosts. We can’t comment on the fishing as we don’t fish, but the scenery is beautiful, and even the pig in the pen in the field smiled at us. The fresh laid eggs from their own hens for our breakfast omelette were delicious - thank you so much. We really appreciated your kindness. We look forward to visiting you again at the end of the season.
