Beacon Hill Holiday Cottages Information

Fishing at Meg's Lake and Beyond

MegMeg's Lake is nearly two acres has the most wonderful setting to the west of the farm. We stock Meg's Lake annually with rainbow trout and they thrive in the superb water quality. Meg's Lake is only available to visitors to the self catering cottages at Beacon Hill. The views are superb and this is a great place to picnic or barbecue. There are stone seats around the lake which are ideal for the non fishing partner to watch their partner catch some supper! Meg's Lake is fly only and we ask that guests put back all their catch per one for the table whilst on holiday.
