The two lakes at this venue are situated on the Blackdown Hills, south of Taunton and one mile north of the village of Churchingford.
They were once part of a large, landscaped estate which originated in the early 1840s and while the surroundings have now run wild, they provide a wonderful setting for fishing or walking.
Otterhead Lakes are surrounded by a nature reserve managed by the Otterhead Estate Trust Company Limited on behalf of us.
Otterhead fishery is leased to Taunton Fly Fishing Club whose secretary, John Connolly, can be contacted on 01823 274272 for further information (no day tickets).
Otterhead Lakes are perfect for a gentle walk owing to their wide range of habitats and attractive setting. Starting near the lodge a trail leads from the car park through the reserve with its variety of woodland, river and open water habitats.
The trail is marshy, narrow and steep in places and walkers need to exercise some care. Limited car parking is available at the entrance to Otterhead and the picnic area by the upper lake offers quiet views of the water.
