Welcome to the Three Island Lake

An exclusive members only coarse fishing lake

Positioned in a tranquil and picturesque setting on a grassland farm on the Buckinghamshire/Bedfordshire border.


The lake, located at Mount Pleasant Farm on the outskirts of Stewkley, is approximately 2.5 acres in size and offers 32 pins. It is fed by natural springs and water pumped from the nearby brook which runs to the west of the lake.

This is a coarse fishery and is predominantly a Carp lake with the fish ranging in size from 2lbs to 25lbs. There are also Gudgeon, Roach, Bream and Tench.

The lake was constructed in 2001 and is a well established fishery. It was closed in 2020 following the pandemic as a number of capital works were needed to stabilise the banks and recondition the water pump. These works were completed and the lake reopened in June 2023 on a membership basis only.

New for 2024 Season

To maintain the exclusive fishing experience for the benefit of our existing members and new members, we have extended our opening period and times that the lake will remain open until and are offering members the opportunity to purchase a Guest Pass. In addition, we are seeking to reintroduce fishing matches. On match days, half the lake will still remain open for pleasure fishing and we will notify members of any bookings at the earliest opportunity.
