Jonchery is an extremely well-known lake. It is an established venue and has a reputation, built up over many years, as a water that is professionally managed, with excellent facilities and, because of its very healthy stock of big carp, it is a water that many anglers return to time and time again. It’s not just in the UK either that its reputation is know as this is a water that is very highly regarded throughout Europe. The whole complex is based around a fish farm and because of this you can be sure that the quality of fish in the water is exemplary. The water is run by UK fishery owner Mark Slade and his family, who live on site.

Jonchery 7 and 8 are the smaller lakes at the far end of the property and can be booked by two or three anglers.

Stocked with plenty of gorgeous commons and mirrors, these runs lakes can give you some sleepless nights. The current record is 205 carp caught by two anglers in 7 days! The swims are extremely popular and are normally booked 1 or 2 years in advance. So make sure you secure your week early enough!


There is a separate building with hot running water, showers, toilets and a small kitchen area containing a fridge and freezer.

Balif is most helpful with good advice
Had only 4 fish between two Anglers, thunder and lightning and rain on most days, think this put the fish off, most of Jonchery not many fish caught.
Peg 7 is perfect for 2/3 people which is stocked very well, we had 82 carp upto 53lb and average size was 26lb. The lake pellet, maize mix and boilies are a must and listen to Mark the bailiff, Simple rigs and bottom baits work best. It's very peacefull lake and facilities are very good, with plenty of freezer space
We've been to J7 a few times now, and it never fails to please or live up to our expectations. If your looking for your own lake for a week, with a really good stock of fish, nice peaceful surroundings, and good facilities then this is the lake for you.
