Part of a 200-year-old estate set in a beautiful, secluded valley in the heart of the Surrey Hills, Bury Hill Fisheries near Dorking is one of the finest day ticket fisheries in the UK.

Whether you are looking for 40 lb carp, 30 lb pike, double-figure zander or huge match nets of tench, bream, crucian, roach, rudd and perch, you’ll find unrivalled sport across four lakes totalling 20 acres. From buzzers screaming to floats dipping and quiver tips pulling round, there’s a world of fishing to enjoy in magnificent surroundings with the very best of facilities. Your first trip to Bury Hill is always the first of many.

Situated just 20 miles from central London and easily accessed by public transport, the fishery is disabled friendly and permanently staffed, making it ideal for youngsters who, together with OAP's and disabled anglers, benefit from concessionary prices. Bury Hill also has a fully stocked on-site shop, a café and ladies and gents toilets to make your stay as pleasurable and comfortable as possible.

Old Bury Hill Lake:
A 200-year-old tree-lined Victorian Estate Lake surrounded by irises and lilies. At 12 acres there are 75 pegs. Old Bury Hill or the ‘Old Lake’ as it is known holds a fantastic head of specimen carp with several 30’s and plenty of doubles and 20’s, and is also noted for huge catches of specimen tench and bream, and outstanding winter predator sport with numerous double-figure zander and pike to 30 lb plus. Fishing is available from both the bank or from purpose built punts giving access to the famous 'jungle', which is noted for its huge catches of specimen tench.

Milton Lake:
Milton at 30 pegs is stocked with large numbers of tench, crucian carp, roach, rudd, perch and bream as well as a few smaller carp to allow anglers to find a haven away from the tackle-busting doubles and 20-pounders that often muscle in elsewhere on the complex. Pleasure catches to 250 lb are commonplace during the spring and summer months whilst match hauls routinely exceed 100 lb.

Bonds Lake:
A 20 peg lake full of hard fighting small carp averaging 3-4 lb for great carp crunching sport, with tench, roach, rudd and bream for variety. A venue for beefy pole elastic or powerful float and feeder rods, Bonds regularly out-fishes all other lakes due to the head of greedy carp under 10 lb. Pleasure catches average well over 50 lb during the warmer months, the two hour match record is a massive 86 lb and top match weight over 300lb making it very popular for club bookings.

Temple Lake:
Old Bury Hill’s land of the giants, Temple is an unashamed out-and-out specimen carp venue, the result of a £350,000 investment in 2003 when a tailor made big carp lake was constructed and stocked with pedigree English carp. Every bite results in a carp over 20 lb, averaging around 25 lb. Temple currently holds up to a dozen different 30-pounders which run to upper 30s. Temple is run on an exclusive membership basis with an annual joining fee.

Had one of the best days fishing I've ever had at Bury Hill. It was my first time here and i'll be going back for sure. What a beautiful place aside from the brilliant fishing. It's clean and so quiet and we were made to feel so welcome when we bought our tickets. Every fish I caught was in perfect condition. In 6 hours I had carp to 10lb 6oz and loads of tench, cucians and perch. Well impressed, I'd recommend it to anyone!

I have just found your website and it brings back many memories. Just after the end of the last war my father and his partner leased Old Bury Hill from Lord Lyle. This was at a time when there were lots of Americans around. Dad & Tom decided that they would open the lake for fishing.

As a young kid at the time I would spend all my weekend and school hols there and I would fish both from the banks and from the boat and many was the time that I would catch a fine pike. At the time there was no carp in the lake and we started to introduce them. I am now 71 years old and now live in NZ but still remember the wonderful times that I had there. I just wish I could once more sit on the bank and try for tench.
