GRASSHOLME IS FIRMLY ESTABLISHED AS ONE OF THE TOP ANY METHOD FISHERIES IN THE COUNTRY, LYING IN THE PICTURESQUE ROLLING PASTURE LAND OF UPPER TEESDALE.
With four miles of bank space and many inlets and bays it offers a great variety of fishing. Grassholme also enjoys the luxury of its own local fish farm and you can now loose feed and ground bait.
Grassholme is suitable for disabled anglers with a disabled platform close to the visitor centre.
The best locations to fish include the dam wall, witch's hat, white post, the disabled platform and west end. For those who like to wander, the middles reaches of the reservoir offer some fantastic sport to fly and spinning methods.
On site we have an excellent lodge shop stocked with everything you need for a days fishing including rods, reels, tackle, accessories, clothing, worms, bait, ice creams and refreshments including hot and cold drinks.
There is a circular footpath around the lake providing magnificent views across the water and a pleasant picnicking area next to the visitor centre for you to relax.
