Herons Lake Retreat – Caerwys, Flintshire – Dog Friendly* & Hot Tubs!*

The family run business has a huge selection of beautiful lodges to choose from and it is serenity and relaxation personified. All of the lodges are fully equipped with self-catering kitchens and the luxury of a private hot tub for you to unwind and immerse yourself in the setting.

Fishing highlights:

  • Private fishing lakes
  • Carp, tench, and bream fishing
  • Serene and secluded environment
  • Website: Herons Lake Retreat
  • Address: Herons Lake Retreat, Station Road, Caerwys, Flintshire, CH7 5AD

Rules: The main ones are barbless hooks only and at least a 9lb mainline. The information about the fish in the lake is slightly lacking on the website and in the reviews. Mixed carp to around 12lb is my judgement from what I have seen.
