Due to the number of late cancellations occurring, Cottington Lakes fishery is implementing some changes to both individual and group advance bookings, most importantly in relation to payment.
A 20% deposit will continue to be collected at the time of booking. However, effective immediately full payment must be received by the fishery no less than 21 days before the date of the booking. Advance bookings made within 21 days of the date of booking must be paid in full at the time of booking.
Payments can now be made over the phone by card.
We understand that there are occasions when it may be necessary to cancel advance bookings and cancellations made prior to the 21 days before the date of booking will be refunded in full. However, failure to cancel prior to the 21 days before the date of booking will result in the deposit being forfeited and the fishery will reserve the right to resell these bookings.
Whilst the fishery will endeavour to contact anglers to remind them that payment is due, it remains, at all times, the anglers responsibility to ensure that payment is made on time.
We hope that these measures will ensure that our lakes are available to those who are able to and wish to fish.
