“great stay”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were really pleased with the cottage it was in a great quit location and our kids really enjoyed the fishing and going out on the boat

The English caretaker was nice and and left us a bottle of wine which was appreciated i felt i had to review as i saw the last review which i felt was un fair the fishing was fine when we stayed we did not expect 56 pound Carp it wasn't that type of holiday

The cottage is clean we found the beds comfortable especially the 3 beds in the triple room our kids sleep really well

The ducks were really good fun and we would recommend a stay here and will be returning next year

Went to fish.but after catching over 200 tiny carp over 1st 2 days realised i was wasting my time. Also beds terrible. Came home 3 days early. No freezer for frozen bait. Sun balcony needs major repairs- lt is falling apart . 1st aid box on site ok if you need a bandage but no basic plasters etc. Very poor overall.

Thankyou for your review

As i said in my email to you I am sorry that the fishing wasn't to your satisfaction ,i have done a little research into the week in question were temperatures were very warm over 30 degrees in the week

I understand and the fish at this time would be lethargic also it was spawning time which again would make it tricky to catch the larger fish the weeks preceding yours were fine and larger fish being caught

We have always tried to attract families or couples looking for a mixture of fishing and having a French holiday

In addition you mentioned the freezer for bait we would not expect the home freezer to have bait in it ,most of the fishing has been with bread or corn and is successful with the decking i have instructed our gardener/handyman to look and see if there is an issue and fix accordingly

As far as the beds the 3 beds in the second bedroom are great and we have had lots of positive comments I was not aware of an issue with the double bed but having spoken to our caretaker I have ordered a new memory foam mattress which is on its way and make for a better nights sleep this is a difficult one as some people like firm some people like soft and larger people need firm beds as they are heavier

We don't want people to have had a bad holiday experience and i am sorry the fishing was not to your liking I have received dozens of good reviews over the years ,in offering offering comfortable interesting accommodation with the lake on the doorstep ,at an affordable price , we had taken on board what you have said and hopefully actioned improvements for future guests

“Super holiday most unusual to have a carp lake from the lounge!!”

We had a great holiday with fishing and boating on the door step the local villages are close for bread and essentials with a bar in the closest village and restaurants close by

The property was well appointed and the beds where comfortable

We where pleased it had WiFi and English TV the log burner was useful and very pleasant in the evening

The caretaker was great and even left a bottle of wine when we arrived ..we paid for cleaning it was 50 euros and well worth it so we left early on the Saturday and didn't have to worry to much about cleaning as we left

Caught a good number of fish including one over 20 lbs which was great

Will be going again next year
