Coking Farm Fishery, Gillingham, Dorset
Coking Farm Fishery is a well managed coarse fishery located in the heart of the Blackmore Vale, on the A30, half way between Henstridge and West Stour. On site is a shower and toilet block with access to fresh water. There is also a well-stocked tackle shop supplying baits from companies such as CC Moore, Mainline and Velocity, as well as sweetcorn and a full range of fox tackle, clothing and tackle from other companies. We also sell cold soft drinks, chocolate and there is a catering van offering breakfast and evening food. There is a butcher on site who stocks local meats and home produced sausages and burgers. There is also a touring park with hard standings for 30 caravans located close to the lakes.
The lakes together total over 20 acres, the farm is also the home to the Coking Farm Caravan Park. The fishery consists of 5 well-stocked lakes catering for everyone from the serious match angler to the weeklong session carp angler wishing to pit his or her wits against the wariest of carp and even catfish. There is a lake to cater for everybody’s taste and preferred method of fishing. The lakes average 4 acres each, which we believe is a nice size, not too big and not too small. Bookings can be taken for individuals or groups wishing to book the whole of a lake (matches or carp fishing get togethers) see the lakes page for more details. All of this is available to us because of the people that make it happen. Without the dedicated Coking Farm team we wouldn’t have such a fantastic fishery.
