If you're after top quality fishing on a water with a lot of big fish and fantastic hospitality from the onsite English owners and bailiff then have a look here


there is also a gite if your friends girl friend wants somewhere more comfortable than a bivvy ;)

Cannot recommed this venue enough. Its peacefull , tranquill and very very private. The accomodation is 5 star and suits families as well as groups of sensible anglers who can respect others property. Its not cheap and it does offer a Drive and Survive with shower and toilet option. Even those facilities are first class.

Limited number of bookings a year means the fish have some rest. On site Bailiff ( Dave) is top bloke who nothing is tooo much trouble for.

For the family there are beaches close by as well as other attractions.

Only 30 mins from Cherbourg or 4 hours drive from Calais.
