Pool Bridge Farm in Yorkshire (also known as Fletcher's Ponds) is a well-established carp fishery, caravan & campsite near York run by the Fletcher family.


Located just a 10 minute drive from York city centre, the fishing complex boasts five well-stocked and picturesque lakes with a wide variety of fishing to keep the most discerning angler happy.  The mature lakes are well-stocked with large specimen Common Carp, Mirror Carp and Ghost Carp as well as silver fish including, Tench, Chub, Rudd, Roach, Bream, Ide and some very big Perch!



We offer night fishing on the members-only 'Q Lake' - a specimen Carp and Catfish fishing lake designed and built for the experienced Carp angler, which has a stock of 30lb+ VS Fisheries Carp and Wels Catfish to 58lb, which we believe to be the biggest fish in Yorkshire!

The Camping and Caravanning Club certified caravan park and campsite at Pool Bridge Farm is perfectly located to explore York and the surrounding attractions in Yorkshire. York city centre is only a 10-minute drive, or a 50-minute stroll through beautiful meadowland. 

The on-site 'Stables Café', as well as ladies, gents and disabled toilet facilities help ensure that your fishing trip is as enjoyable as possible. We offer ample free car parking adjacent to the lakes as well as some disabled friendly pegs. Showers are also provided for those of you that are night fishing.

The Stables café is open everyday except Monday during spring and summer, so whether you are fishing or just passing by, please feel free to call in for a bite to eat, a chat and a look around the lakes.
