Sopley Lake is a private lake situated behind Sopley Farm PYO, on Derritt Lane which runs from Sopley to Bransgore. The lake is a former gravel pit of around 10 acres in size, of which aggregate was extracted from in the 1980’s then naturally filled with water once the workings were complete. This quiet area surrounded by woodland is available these days for fishing, camping, water sports and as a wedding/events venue. PLEASE NOTE IT IS NOT A PUBLIC RECREATION AREA AND IS PRIVATE PROPERTY.
Please see our camping and accommodation page for more information on our log cabin, shepherds hut and our new camping pod.
Set in a beautiful idyllic woodland location on the edge of The New Forest, Sopley Lake is the ideal venue for your wedding reception, special party or corporate event and is available to hire from mid April to October.
We have a large, secluded area to the side of the Lake which is surrounded by trees where a tent or marquee can be placed, with stunning views of the lake. We also have to offer ample parking, toilets and fresh water. Our shepherds hut or log cabin accommodation can also be hired for your party if you wish to stay over. Or take a look at www.forestyurts.com as these yurts are also situated around Sopley Lake.

The lake will be CLOSED for fishing at weekends (6pm Friday - 11am Sunday) if there is an event on, however we will endeavour to contact members via email in advance but do call the office to check.
