Raygill Lakes

Family run countryside estate offering fishing, country clothing, cafe, bar, and glamping facilities.

Originally a limestone quarry, Raygill was purchased in 1987 and landscaped into the three beautiful lakes which are home to a multitude of wildlife which you can see today. The limestone spring water is known to be nourishing to fish and consequently produces fantastic quality fish. 

We offer two course lakes and one fly fishing lake, as well as the Lakeside Cafe and Lakeside Bar. We've also recently expanded to include some custom build glamping facilities - check out our 'Stay with us' page for more!

As Raygill is situated on private land, we are only open to customers.
