Country Sports has been established for more than 10 years and offer a variety of country pursuits including rough shooting, wild fowling, fishing, motor cross, and horse liveries.
Lakes & Fishing
The lakes are situated in a beautiful five-acre woodland site which has been fully landscaped and fenced. There is plenty of parking on site and access is only available via a locked gate giving maximum security to members.
Majors Lakes were constructed in 1894 as a duck shoot and over the next 100 years gradually silted up until in 1996 when there was only 2 feet of water in the deepest part.
In 1998 the lakes were completely drained and thousands of tons of silt were removed and dumped in specially constructed pits. When refilled with water the deepest part was 14 feet with depths varying from 4 feet upwards around the edge of the lakes.
During the de-silting works all the fish were removed for safekeeping and when the work was completed only selected fish were reintroduced. These were mainly Common Carp, Mirror Carp and Roach. Thousands of Skimmer Bream were removed by the Environment Agency and since that time an ongoing policy of restocking has taken place. Large numbers of Tench have been stocked, together with Carp, Rudd and Gudgeon.
Each month we hold a friendly match for members and friends at the lakes and everybody is invited to attend.
Each angler is asked to pay £6.00 entry fee (£12.00 for non members) which will make up the prize money that will be divided between first and second place anglers. There are also points awarded to each angler at each match, these points are then totalled up at the end of the year and the angler with the highest points wins the Don Bird Match Shield for that year.
New for 2011 is the 'Monthly Match Shield' this will be awarded to the winner of each monthly match. This means you have 10 chances of winning a Shield throughout the year.
We also hold Charity matches and night matches.
There is wild carp fishing on the isle of Sheppey and we are also creating a new lake at Holligbourne.
Rough Shooting & Driven Shooting
Rough shooting across approx. 2000 acres including pigeon, rabbits, wildfowl and game at Bredgar, Hollingbourne, Faversham and the Isle of Sheppey. The cropping mix of Oil seed, Maize, Wheat and Beans gives excellent sport all year round.
Motocross & Cross Country
We have a sensational Moto-cross track in Hollingbourne which is run to a high standard with various jumps.
Parsonage farm livery is a DIY livery stable and is situated in the lovely village of Bredgar, between Maidstone and Sittingbourne.
There are a range of facilities available and some great country rides to go on.
