Could all existing members please visit the members area for the 2020-21 season update


Due to the amount of interest. the waiting list for the Alcove is temporarily closed, please keep an eye on the website for when we open the list again



Nestling between the tranquil River Ivel and the town of Shefford lies The Alcove Syndicate.

An 8 acre lake that was formerly a day ticket fishery, has recently been transformed into a private members only syndicate water (August 2017), with on site toilets. The lake holds many secrets, as yet not all of its inhabitants of notable character have been landed.

We are in the process of transforming this tranquil lake into a setting fit for the king of fish, the Carp.

The lake holds some powerful fish, Ghosties into the high twenties along with common, mirror’s and some crucians.

It also holds some rather large Pike and Perch. Due to a regimented feeding program we now have at least 6 carp over the 30lb mark


Our goal is to create a lake that isn’t just a lake, it’s a destination.

Somewhere for members to come and relax, to switch off, to be with friends and to feel both safe and secure in their surroundings with like-minded friends who hold the same core values in both fishing and life with a membership of 130 members.


Our number one priority is towards the fish, every member has a full med kit to treat every fish they catch, be it a 12lb pike or a upper 30lb Ghostie
