Rookery Waters is a quiet, secluded location within Rookery Farm, Pidley, Cambridgeshire, surrounded by public footpaths and bridal ways for all to enjoy. The family have farmed the 230 acre arable and beef farm since the 1970’s and now run the fishery, café and caravan site alongside it.
Rookery Waters began in 2002 when our family decided to change a water storage reservoir into a popular fishing lake; Rook. Since then, we have gone on to build four more lakes with varying features, catering for both pleasure and match fishing.
In 2015 construction finished on Rookery Café and the tackle shop; Tackle and Bates. More recently in 2019 five CL caravan pitches have been constructed on Rook lake, with their own electric hook ups and mains water supply. The pitches have commanding views over the lake and panoramic views over open fields to the rear.
Conservation is a priority for us at Rookery Waters, we have planted thousands of native species trees. A two hectare reed bed has been created next to the fishing lakes and 42 species of birds including reed warblers, oyster catchers, lapwing, red kites, nesting buzzards and some ornamental Egyptian geese have been recorded.
We enjoy a quiet rural location but there is a golf course, pub and village shop all within a 10 minute drive of us. The historical market town of St Ives, which sits on the river Great Ouse, is a further 5 minutes’ drive, here you can also catch a bus via The Guided Bus Route to Cambridge.
