The Original Cabin

Our Original Log Cabin is as old as Blackthorn Fishery itself, but has had a significant face-lift and upgrade since it was built in 2011. It may be smaller than our newer luxury Lodges, but has an intimate, cosy feel, and a charm all of its own. Its open plan living area looks out onto the lake and is the ideal place to watch a stunning Blackthorn sunset.   The original log cabin has the least amount of water to fish to, but is still a very prolific swim. A south-westerly breeze blows directly into its bay which can make it one of the best pegs in the right conditions.


The Living Area looks out to the lake through patio doors:

  • 26” LED TV with Freeview TV channels, radio and integrated DVD player
  • Dining table and two chairs
