Mount Pleasant Bed & Breakfast, Stewkley, Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire
Three Island Lake opened for fishing four years ago and offers the opportunity for anglers to enjoy day-ticket fishing or an angling break away from it all in either a homely, comfortable and clean Bed and Breakfast, their own touring caravan or tent, or unusual one-man Shepherds' Huts.
To be found on the Bedfordshire/Buckinghamshire border to the west of Leighton Buzzard, Three Island Lake is just 20-minutes drive from the shopping metropolis of Milton Keynes.
Run by husband and wife team David and Dorothy Body, the spring-fed Three Island Lake is part of a 50-acre grassland farm in the middle of open countryside. Look out from the bedroom windows in the B&B and you can see nothing but grass and trees in every direction.
All the accommodation is self-catering - although tea, coffee and everything you could need for a hearty English breakfast is provided for residents in the B&B and basic breakfast foodstuffs or those in the Shepherds' Huts (pictured below left). There are also plenty of idyllic pubs, inns and restaurants within easy driving distance.
Indeed, despite its rural location, there is plenty to do for those who don't want to go fishing.
The charming village of Waddesdon, with its ornate facade houses, is a few miles away and there are a host of National Trust properties within easy reach. These include Waddeston Manor, a Renaissance-style chateau which was built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild as a venue for his house parties, Claydon House, Stowe Gardens, Buckingham Chantry Chapel, Ascott Gardens and many more attractions a little further afield.
The spacious self-catering B&B suite offers a twin room with its own TV, own bathroom and fully-equipped kitchenette incorporating fridge and cooker. It even has its own front door and lounge.
For those looking for peaceful fishing in a tranquil setting, Three Island Lake offers an excellent day-ticket venue for anglers living in the area and a delightful out-of-the-way venue for anglers and their partners looking.
