Along with nearly a mile stretch of the River Wensum, Taverham Mill also features four fishing lakes including the 22 acres, fully otter fenced, Mills lake.
For those looking for carp lakes in Norfolk, look no further. The Mill boast carp up to 35lb and tench to 9lb. Anglers can also fish for roach, perch, pike and even eels.
Where you can fish
Along with the lakes, anglers can also fish the beautiful River Wensum. Our ¾ mile stretch includes two weir pools as well as deep pools, shallow gravel runs, lilies, reeds and snaggy stretches. Anglers of all abilities can fish for chub, which are in large numbers weighing in at 3-5lb dace, roach, perch, pike and small barbel.
Fishing is permitted with a season ticket or for those staying in our great value accommodation. Along with the tranquil setting, you might also spot wildlife including otters, kingfishers, water fowl and barn owls.
