Enjoy the natural beauty of our carp fishing lakes.
Two established and sheltered spring-fed lakes well stocked with plenty of strains and sizes of carp to 12lbs, also lots of roach, rudd and goldfish. Located in a secluded valley and the perfect place to relax and reflect away from the hustle and bustle. Enjoy the tranquil Dorset countryside and view the wonderful wildlife at first hand. You may see our two kingfishers or the regular heron visitor and fox, rabbit, and deer if you are really quiet! We have identified 4 species of bat that feed near the water at night-time.
Highway Farm is the ideal destination for an angling holiday or do come down for the day if you are staying or live nearby.
Don’t know how or where to start? Ever wondered why other anglers are catching more than you?

What our visitors are saying…
The two lakes at Highway Farm offer a good days sport for all levels of angler. For children and novices there is an abundance of roach and rudd with the odd goldfish thrown in and plenty of carp if you are lucky. For more serious anglers the carp grow into double figures and if you can work out how to catch them you too will go home with a smile on your face. No fancy baits are required just a tin of sweetcorn and a few slices of bread. I am sure we will be back to see you sometime in the future. Thanks once again.
Just a quick note to thank you for such a warm and friendly welcome at the weekend, the food was delicious and the surroundings and accommodation, simply wonderful. We’d love to come back, if you’ll have us, to see if we can catch ‘Benson’ (the name given to the 17.5lb Carp!!).
Hello Pauline and John just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful stay at Highway Farm, the hospitality was first class and the fishing was the best entertainment we have ever had! The fish were in fantastic condition and were worth the long drive. Look forward to seeing you both again next year.
Hi Pauline, made it to your lakes Tuesday, had a great mornings fishing. I am a member of a carp syndicate in Oxford, where I live and fish the Thames occasionally and I must say your lakes were a joy. The fish were in great condition and even the little roach battled superbly, worth the trip in every way. I hope to visit again when in the area.
Our 3rd time, always a lovely welcome, feel at home and relaxed all the time during our stay. Wonderful views and fabulous fishing – we’ll be back.
