Philip & Judie are excellent hosts with local knowledge. Many thoughtful touches were provided like a comprehensive restaurant recommendations and a raft of practical information on the area, and brochures. Many attractions are closed out of season but that was as expected. The gardens are superb and even late in the year were a delight, with ducks and other birds on the massive pond.

We chose it for its isolation from the modern world. No nearby motorways or main roads or towns. The result was a glorious tranquility, especially at night when nothing moved. The lack of light pollution meant glorious views of the Milky Way and the sighting of several shooting stars. Everyone enjoyed the large grounds and the room to find individual space while still being in visual touch. We had wonderful lunches in the picnic/barbecue area and even better barbecues every night, even though the weather was a little cool for the time of year. The kitchen was a great meeting place each morning for staggered breakfasts as different parts of the family rolled out of bed at different times. Everyone enjoyed their rooms but especially Shelley and I. As the bank of mom and dad were funding the whole exercise we thought it reasonable to sit up in the gables with its floor to ceiling Windows and doors. Wonderful views over the countryside by day and the moon and stars by night. Thanks again Pip and Gary, our amiable hosts

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Despite studying all the pictures and data thoroughly before travelling, we were still unprepared for the truly wonderful setting we had been fortunate enough to book! The location is very quiet and isolated, but the tower had everything we needed, including wi-fi and British TV, a real home from home. The kitchen was very well equipped, and cooking, food storage and even a dishwasher and washing machine made everything a breeze. There was plentiful hot water too, and a proper bath in addition to the shower. The bed was very comfortable and everything was of good quality and very clean. The owner's friendly cat came to visit the tower, and the dog came to visit on my fishing trips. He was surprisingly well behaved for a big chap! We visited in October and had several frosty nights, but the tower was well heated and nobody "forced" me to venture out at first light to "Siberia Corner" to fish each day! I must admit that when booking French holidays I usually "manage" to have a lake reasonably close to visit, often on site! However, none have come close to this in size or potential. It is about 4 acres, surrounded by overhanging trees and extremely old. The stock is largely unknown, but, there was a stocking of mirror carp in January 2016 totalling 400 kgs. The fish added were between 8 and 14 kgs (around 17 - 30 lbs). There are some other common carp of unknown proportions and quantity but overall the stocking is fairly light. As there is a plentiful supply of naturals including mussels, snails and bloodworm the fishing is difficult. There has been very little angling done, but as it increases and more bait goes in, (good quality pellets and boilies), the fish will become easier to catch! There is a row boat available, and a little time spent exploring yields suitable areas to "lay traps". This is a very old lake set in woodland, and as such, there is a lot of silt present. However, there are plenty of firm areas to fish. Fishing for a few hours most (frosty) mornings was a real pleasure, and the highlight was the capture of a splendid mirror of 18lb 10oz, The first of the new fish stocked to be caught. We will be returning in Spring for another attempt at the uncaught leviathans! I must add, there is a small pool with small (ish) common carp available a few hundred yards up the lane which is ideal if you have limited time or just want everything a bit easier! Overall a great holiday with very friendly and helpful hosts. Thank you!
