Fishing at Barmston Farm
Barmston Farm offers some of the best fishing in East Yorkshire, and is free of charge for guests staying on the park. The lake is more than 3 acres set within a 10 acre field and is the perfect setting for a relaxing days fishing in the well stocked lake.
On 19th June 2103 a 9lb 8oz eel was caught by Mike Jackson, the largest eel ever caught in the North of England and in the top few in the entire country. Well done Mike! Pictures below.
As with everything at Barmston Farm, quality is the main objective, and investment has been made in both the lake, and the fish it carries:
- Common and mirror carp, up to 30lb
- Fl Hybrid Carp
- Eel’s to 9lb 8oz
The site and local area offers a huge amount for everyone so, for visitors with different interests, whilst one enjoys a peaceful and relaxing day fishing, the other may wish to visit Beverley, York, or Hull for the shopping, restaurants and bars, or Bridlington and Scarborough for the seaside, or simply take in some of the excellent tourist attractions that are close by.
