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.
