Wensum View Cottage boasts three areas on Mill Lodge Farm for fishing. The first is a private stretch of the River Wensum. The river contains Roach, Dace, Pike, Chub and the odd Brown Trout. The second area is a purpose built pond. The pond contains Roach, Tench and Crucian. The third is the main lake excavated in 2016 to create a bespoke Crucian and Tench fishery as part of the National Crucian Conservation Project.
For those not drawn to fishing, families of swans and ducks frequent the river and appreciate being fed by visitors to the farm or why not try your hand at pond dipping!
Mill lodge farm’s proprietors make every effort to work with the environment agency and at this time (Jan 2010), there are otters inhabiting the river. However, it is unlikely that you will be lucky enough to see one. Many species of bird such as Kingfishers and little Grebe frequent the river.
Wensum view cottage provides the ideal place for the whole family with something for everyone to enjoy.
