Welcome to Barford Lakes Website

Based on the outskirts of Norwich in Norfolk, we provide an impressive range of fishing across the four venues we manage. We have a total of 8 well stocked lakes holding a good variety of fish, including Carp, Tench, Bream, Chub, Crucian Carp, Golden Tench and Orfe, Roach, Rudd and Perch. Also on site we have excellent facilities including car parking, toilet block, and our fully stocked tackle shop.

For anglers of all abilities we offer some of the best fishing lakes in Norfolk and with additional lakes opening in 2007/2008 we will have something to suit everyone from the casual angler through to the specimen specialist.

4 Day Festival 2015

This year's 4 day festival will be fished from Friday 14th August to Monday 17th August 2015. Further details can be found by clicking here

We try to keep the anglers on each lake low in order to provide the best fishing.  The sections are not always the same each day too so you don'tfish with the same people all weekend. All the venues are close together and you have plenty of time after the draw, but for transport reasons anglers travelling together can be placed in the same secion, please ask when booking.

Please email or call 01603 759624 to book in.  Accomodation can be arranged, please get in touch.


We hope you find our site informative and welcome any feedback. Should you have any queries about fishing in Norfolk then please get in contact we will be pleased to assist and look forward to welcoming you for a day's fishing.
