 Coarse Fisheries (Stillwater)


Situated in secluded woodland, the Ecclesbourne reservoir is the perfect place for a peaceful days fishing. The reservoir, affectionately known to the locals as ‘The Spoon’, covers over 3 acres of land and has over 17 strategically placed pegs.

The waters are rich with fish such as carp, rudd, tench and roach meaning you can expect to make some impressive catches. The wildlife on land is equally as impressive with kingfishers, grass snakes and grey wagtails commonly seen around the water.

Over the years Shearbarn have diligently maintained the land surrounding the reservoir and made improvements to the paths for easier access. Do be aware that all fishing is taken on a catch and release basis; if you would like to keep your fish we recommend hiring a charter boat from one of the nearby beaches.
