What a fantastic week with my dad and brother, me and my dad were in pegs 1 and 2 on speci lake and my brother in 4 on kiln lake, what can I say about this fishery its absolutely stunning and what a place to be all the staff and brilliant and to the new chef in the cafe what a lovely women and her food was out off this world, I will definitely be returning in a few weeks. Over the week I had 5 carp 2 20s and 3 high mid doubles


Went to furnace lakes on Saturday to see if it was suitable for a disabled angler. Couldn't believe what I found...the staff are just brilliant so helpful and friendly. Taking your tackle to your swim is a huge plus point for me. The huts and toilets are very clean and they are not portaloos. The lakes look fab you just want to get a rod out. They have security 24hrs . The lady who i spoke to in the shop was just superb...if you see this post a big thank you. I'm really impressed with the complete set up ....they have a very good shop selling tackle and food items at a very reasonable prices. For me the place has given me a chance of going fishing again.


 Was a pleasure to fish the venue an well worth the 6 hour journey when I visited great venue ( most well run venue I've fished )


The staff are top draw and so is the fishing. love furnace.


Not many people talk about good work always the bad! This is a great place


Awsome place ... love going there.

IT IS A SUPERB FISHERY, second to none in my eyes, I've been for the last 4 years @ 10 days at a time.

Beautiful fishery in top class order. Very friendly atmosphere. Smashing big fish.

The new ownership have really turned this fishery around and made it great !!     Always a pleasure to go there.

Good to finally find a fishery with sensible

rules and people who enforce them. As a

woman, I feel safe. Well done Furnace

and thank you.





I took a disabled friend in wheel chair to furnace, they where superb there couldn't do enough. And he cought a chunk from plantation.


It's good to see positive comments about places like this I've not fished it but I think I'll be loading the car soon.


Brilliant. Well done Furnace Lakes, I am really looking forward to getting back on your banks soon myself soon keep up the good work.


I was fishing on kiln lake a few weeks ago frist time fishing at furnace lakes had a lovely weeks fishing very nice place and very nice people will be returning for next visit in a few weeks thank you to furnace


FURNACE 5 STAR.  I travel up from Veovil about 6 times a year. I have been to many other fisheries all over the Country, clowns, drunks, drugs, and thieves, some places you dare not go to sleep. Deeply saddened by peoples behaviour, especially those who are supposed to be anglers. What a relief to find furnace lakes, a place with sensible rules in place. Stunning lakes, dripping in features, smashing fish and great staff. 5 star angling and venue, well done guys at Furnace.

Absolutely blown away bay this place. Excellent fishery and now my second home. Keep up the good work.

And maintained to a very high standard. the staff are so friendly and welcoming with loads of advice and tips. I really enjoyed my first visit to this venue and will most definitely be returning to this beautiful place. And I was extremely over the moon wen I landed 7 catfish and a couple of carp....100% looking forward to visiting this venue again at the end of May 2018 :) here's a couple of the fish I caught on my 48 hour session cheers Ash

Firstly may we congratulate you on what has got to be THE premier UK Fishery. The professionalism shown by you and all your staff members was exemplary.The way the Fishery rules and site regulations were explained to us by Simon was also in a very professional manor. Then onto the fishery itself, i am speaking for the three of us when i say we were blown away with the astounding presentation of the lakes, it's surroundings, the nature and the wildlife. the cleanliness of all the welfare cabin's and w/c's were terrific

The food served up by Helly was fantastic.

How anyone can go on social media and complain about Furnace Lakes is beyond us & beggars belief,      EDDIE.
