Lac de la Grange
The 6.5 acre lake which is situated next to the accommodation, has been here since pre-Napoleonic times and is set within our private grounds, surrounded by fields and woodland. It is naturally spring fed providing high quality oxygenated water.
A dam sits along the western end of the lake where the water is at it's deepest, a maximum of 8m. You can fish in a designated swim along the dam.
At the east end there are two islands surrounded by streams which feed into the lake
The north bank (farthest from the accommodationbut still only a short walk) is flat providing easy access to the three main swims with purpose built platforms and huts providing shelter, storage and a place to sleep when night fishing. There are some other swims along this bank.
On the south side the bank slopes quite sharply, here there is one swim on top of the bank, right next to the accommodation and another in a clearing toward the more shallow end of the lake where, on summer days, fish bask protected by the exposed tree roots
You don’t have to be a fisherman to enjoy this picturesque lake. The setting is beautiful and provides a peaceful place for bird/nature watching and if you fancy a walk the 1km track leads all the way around the lake.
No licences are required, night fishing is permitted and the five main swims have wooden huts providing shelter from the weather and to sleep in when night fishing so no bivvies required.
The lake contains in the region of 70 quality carp including 3 or 4 wild carp (often mistaken for grass carp). The largest carp caught to date (2019 season) are in the mid 40lbs region and with our current feeding regime these fish should be hitting the high 40's by next season.
There are also many tench, up to 5lbs, along with roach, rudd, specimen perch, a few pike and other small silver fish.
There is a stone tackle hut next to the lake which can be used for storage. Here you will also find a fridge for storing bait.
We can arrange for exclusive use of the lake for your party during your stay for a small extra charge.
Hookbait, groundbait and rigs are available for purchase on site at very reasonable prices. Bed chairs and a baitboat are available to hire.
