If you rent the Chalet or the Lodge you can fish both Lodge lake & Smallwater lake


Smallwater Lodge Lake in France is situated in a tranquil, scenic location on a private & secure site,

surrounded by woodland and green fields with abundant wildlife in the area.

This small fishing lake is very active and contains lots of big carp to over 50lb,

plus black bass, perch, zander and even a couple of sturgeon

making it an ideal fishing lake for all anglers including beginners and children.

 The lake is surrounded by trees and hedges with picnic areas.

 Although the sun still shines on the lake there are some nice shaded areas

 which can be a relief from the heat of the sun at the height of the season in France.

We have a selection of bait for sale and rods/reels etc. can be hired for the day.

Below you can see pictures of the lake being excavated plus a few carp that have already been stocked.

From these new photos you can see that the fish can come and go from each lake

by going under the bridge, and they do !
