Introduction
Cottage Pool is an old estate lake that lies deep in the heart of the Shropshire countryside. The site extends to a total of 5.15 acres (2.1ha).

Location
The property is located approximately 0.5 miles north of the village of Brockton. The market town of Much Wenlock is 5 miles distant. Bridgnorth 9 miles, and Shrewsbury 17 miles.

History
Hidden in a wooded valley near Wenlock Edge, the lake's construction dates back to the 18th Century. The lake was re-excavated and remodelled in the late 1980s, after which it became a private syndicate. Having been left to wild over for the past 10 years, the lake has now had a complete restocking, and has become a prime and very mature water that is steeped in wildlife, fauna and complimented by beautiful surroundings.

Cottage Pool
The lake is constructed online, with an inlet and outlet over the dam. The water area extends to approximately 2.1 acres with shallows and depths of up to 10 feet. Features include weed beds, lilly pads, rushes and a small island. A total of 10 swims. The lake has the benefit of a boathouse, situated on the southern bank.

There is a locked gated access leading to a generous car parking area. The site is fenced, with a 4 ft wire mesh fence and timber posts.

Restoration
Cottage Pool was de-silted and excavated in 2019. A fresh stock of carp were introduced and the perimeter fence erected.

Fish stock
The lake is stocked with approximately 50 fish, predominantly mirror carp, zip linears and a few old English common carp. The current stock range in size up to 20lbs.

Pricing
The fishery is currently run on a booking basis with up to five anglers permitted at any one time, together with full lake bookings. Prices available on the website.
