Welcome from your helpful team
A bit about us...
Phil & Jude Simmons have been at Bullock Farm since 1984 (Phil having lived here since he was 7 years old and the farm having been in his family for at least 6 generations).
Initially farming pigs, poultry and sheep, we decided to diversify in 1995 by converting a disused pig slurry pit into what is now the Match Lake. The South Pool was established in the same year, followed a year later by the Carp Lake. As the business grew we added the North Pool and then, in 2003 we opened Rushcombe Lake.
We have always strived to improve our facilities at Bullock Farm, and in addition to the above we now boast two beautiful barn-conversion holiday cottages, a 2.5 acre campsite, a café, a purpose-built shower & toilet block, a tarmac driveway and car park and all-weather paths around the lakes.
We take pride in our friendly welcome and on your visit you are likely to meet Phil at the lakeside and The Lambing Shed team in the café. Jude is the friendly voice on our answerphone message, will respond to your e-mails and, if you ask her really nicely, might even put your picture on our website gallery! On Phil’s rare days off, you may also meet our sons Dom & Ben at the lakeside. Ben also runs his own landscaping business, Benedict Simmons Landscaping, and undertakes all the maintenance around the lakes - click here to have a look at his website.
We look forward to welcoming you.
