Warning - written by a woman who enjoys catching the occasional fish - this review is mainly from my perspective. We have just returned home after a wonderful week’s self catering holiday at Leamington Lakes. My husband and I have been regulars for about ten years and have always enjoyed the beautiful countryside that surrounds the site and the peace and quiet! Fishing was an added bonus. We were a busy GP and Nurse who both needed de stressing but thankfully we are now retired. The site was immaculate as always, all the lawns cut and the lakes looked beautiful with the lilies in bloom. We have always enjoyed the fishing and have spent many happy hours on Abbey lake catching carp tench bream and roach. Returning with the family this time after lockdown restrictions were relaxed- we felt very safe and very happy to be back. My fisherman husband now has Parkinson’s disease. We were concerned he may not manage to tie the knots required but thankfully all was good and we know Andy the owner would definitely have helped if we needed it. As requested - he mixed a bucket of ground bait for us - ready for when we arrived and put some maggots out for us in case we wanted to fish when we arrived as the shop would be shut. We found this very helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. We hired both chalets which are immaculate and very comfortable. The beds and pillows are amazing - we slept SO well. There is a large fridge freezer and a dishwasher and a good size kitchen . Lovely comfy couches to lounge about on in the evenings watching TV. Outside there are comfortable garden chairs and a huge parasol- we sat out most evenings . Every morning we enjoyed Debbie’s full English breakfast - worth paying extra for - this set us up for the day, except for a nice take away cappuccino and latte enjoyed at the lakeside before the shop shut at 12.. We fished every day on Abbey - mornings then late afternoon till 8pm and we caught many carp ranging from 10- 15 pounds which is good for us. One man caught a 17 pounder- we watched him bring it in - what a fight!! Also fishing opposite us was an elderly lady and she caught 67 fish in one day. She was delighted. As you can tell our fishing experience is for chilling, relaxing by a beautiful lake watching the butterflies and dragonflies and families of ducks and other various water birds swimming by. The grandchildren 11 and 13 had their first experience of lemington lakes and fishing and they loved it. The CO OP in the village is handy and has a selection of amazing locally made frozen meals- we had a chicken and ham hock pie and a steak and ale pie and they were delicious- pricy but worth it. We ate out one night and had fish and chips from the village on another night- which also catered tor our vegan friends who visited one evening. There is an Aldi in the village now which offers amazing value and means I don’t have to bring a whole load of food with me!!! The garden centre now has Seasalt clothing and some Joules too. There are lots of National Trust properties dotted around and the grandchildren spent a day in Warwick Castle. There were various Farmers Markets to visit and also Blenheim Palace. So that is the end of my review. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday and are returning on our own in September for a very long weekend we hope.
