Teasdale has 7 large impounding reservoirs. Cow Green Reservoir sits at the head of the River Tees. Selset and Grassholme Reservoirs are situated in the Lune valley. Balderhead, Blackton and Hury Reservoirs are in an adjacent Balder valley. The Lune and Balder valley reservoirs feed water for treatment to Lartington Water Treatment Works.
Grassholme is firmly established as one of the top any method fisheries in the country, lying in the picturesque rolling pasture land of upper Teesdale. Grassholme Reservoir is an impounding reservoir that is located about 3km to the south of Middelton-in-Teesdale and immediately downstream of Selset Reservoir. With four miles of bank space and many inlets and bays it offers a great variety of fishing. Grassholme is suitable for disabled anglers and visitors.
On site we have an excellent lodge shop stocked with everything you need for a day’s fishing including rods, reels, tackle, accessories, clothing, worms, bait, ice creams and refreshments including hot and cold drinks. Environment Agency rod licenses are also on sale at this fishery.
There is a circular footpath around the lake providing magnificent views across the water and a pleasant picnicking area next to the visitor centre for you to relax. Grassholme is also home to Teesdale Sailing and Water sports Club. The club is a community sailing and water sports club and a registered charity.
