We had a wonderful holiday. Our hosts were brilliant & nothing was too much trouble.

McConnell Family, Devon

We completely fell in love with this part of France. It is a little bit of paradise here. Really enjoyed the thunder & lightning & watching the stars at night. We adored every minute of being here & couldn'y have asked for more. The only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. A perfect holiday.

Lee, Sarah & Lewis, Dartford Kent

We had a fantastic week - so much better than expected. We don't wan't to go home.  The cabin was really well equipped & lovely & clean. Tom enjoyed fishing every day & was very pleased when he caught a 12 pounder. All in all we all had a lovely time.

Paul ,Sarah, Glenn, Tom & Rea, Gravesend Kent

Very relaxing & peaceful stay. The children fell in love with the ducks & goats & enjoyed catching plenty of crayfish, lizards & monster fish.

Pomeroy Family, Ashford Kent

What a relaxing place. We loved chilling out by the cabin, swimming & boating in the lake & the hot tub. We all loved our holiday. It was totally lush!

Byrne Family, Hertfordshire

We came on our first holiday for 23 years, on our own without the children. Peace & quiet is what we wanted & we stepped out of the real world to this peaceful retreat in rural France. We were left alone to relax, but help was at hand if we needed it. Thank you.

Jane & Quentin, North Wales.

After a long drive we arrived at this beautiful quiet oasis. Fantastic fishing - we caught a lot & inspired us to buy our own place out here with lakes. To everyone else coming, enjoy the fishing as it is amazing & hope you have as much fun as we did.
Mick, Kelly , James & Fiona , London

When we got here, we thought we had arrived at the gates of heaven. The place had everything & best of all was the hot tub - it is the main tool for a week of relaxation. The fishing was great & my brother caught the biggest fish I've ever seen - a whopping 24 lbs! Jon & Maxine's company has been great & I hope you have a great time here like we did.

Shepherd Family , England.

A lovely peaceful place. We enjoyed the fishing & driving around finding the lovely villages. Maxine & Jon were lovely & invited us to use the outdoor oven for a BBQ & finished off the evening watching shooting stars. The boys enjoyed the hot tub & the dogs. Thank you for a lovely holiday
Miller Family , Kent

What a wonderful place. Thanks to Jon & Maxine for allowing us to share your dream. We so did!
Barbara & Jim, Kent

This is such a lovely quiet place to relax. If you were going on honeymoon with your children, this is the place to do it! Jon & Maxine welcomed us with open arms. Unfortunately the hot tub wasn't working, however the lake & the surrounding area provided great entertainment. Would definitely recommend the markets - Piegut on Wednesdays, Brantome on Fridays & St Estephe on Monday nights.

Allen Family, Margate Kent

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The lake was extremely fun to swim in & the entire area is beautiful. Had a great time here & the surrounding villages & markets. It's been a fabulous few days.

Flinton Family, Isle of Wight

This was absolute paradise - peace & quiet was fantastic & surrounding villages superb. The lodge was great & felt really at home here. Thanks, the holiday has just been wonderful.
Helen & Steve , Netherlands

Accomodation was very comfortable in picturesque & peaceful surroundings Terrific thunderstorm one night, although saw a little too much rain while we were here. Our hosts looked after us extremely well & were very good company. Brantome is a "must see" - really enjoyed the canoes & market.
Charles Family, Berkshire.

Two weeks of sheer bliss. The tranquility & beauty of this place is majestic. The guys really enjoyed the fishing & had some good catches with the largest a 27lb carp. The frogs kept us entertained especially during the night! Thank you so much for making us so welcome.
Peter,Janet, Nicholas, Alan & Tania, Scotland & Manchester

This holiday was a little different than we usually take & our first impression was that this was just what we needed & we weren't disappointed. The lodge is well equipped, clean & comfortable.  Loved the fishing & caught a 28lb carp. It was a monster fish. You have found a little gem here. Thank you.

Paul & Jan, York
