Rookery Waters is located within Rookery Farm, just outside Pidley, near St Ives. The family have farmed the 230 acre mixed farm (arable and beef) since the 1970’s and now run the fishery alongside it.
Rookery Waters began in 2002 when the family decided to change a water storage reservoir into a popular fishing lake; Rook. Since then, they have gone on to build four more lakes with varying features, catering for both pleasure and match fishing. In 2015 construction finished on The Rookery Café and Tackle and Bates Shop.
Conservation at Rookery Waters is their main priority, hence adding numerous features on the site to attract wildlife. The woodland surrounding the lakes, planted throughout the construction of the complex and the two hectare reed bed next to Raven, ensure that Rookery Waters is abundant with nature, especially birds, with 42 species recorded at the last count including oyster catchers, warblers and barn owls.
We do hope you enjoy your visit.
The site is open 364 days of the year, from 7am until dusk.
