It is also only 5 minutes to our local creperie, restaurant. We moved, Pam & Mark from the UK in 2001 & set up a very successful self catering holiday home business with 2 cottages set in 17 acres of private land which also has a small fishing lake with Carp up to 20.lbs+, Perch, Tench, Roach, Common Carp, Mirror Carp, Grass & Crucian Carp The lake was bought in 2004 & was completely emptied & de silted. Mark being an avid angler he restocked it with Mirror, Common, Grass & Wild Carp plus Sturgeon, Pike & Black Bass. The lake was reopened in 2009 & the lake record stands at a 44.lbs+ Common Carp named Rocky by our first client who caught it breaking his PB. All the fish are in pristine condition & are gaining weight all the time.
