Shortheath Water is a family owned hidden gem in the Heart of the National Forest. A tranquil friendly venue which overlooks an idyllic small lake, with an island populated with wildlife.

The lake provides an exceptional environment for the angler with excellent facilities, which make it one of the best fishing venues in the area. Two four star self-catering holiday lodges are on site which are frequented by fisherman and tourists as they are perfectly situated for many local attractions and amenities.

A warm friendly atmosphere awaits you and the owners say that they take great pleasure from meeting new people and look forward to welcoming visitors back, which are returning again and again. The reviews on social media and consistent top reviews on Trip advisor speaks volumes and highly recommend giving Lakeside Bistro and Shortheath Water a visit.
