The one-and-a-half-acre lake at L’Etang is situated at the bottom of a gentle valley and is framed by over four acres of deciduous woodland. It is teeming with fish (Common Carp, Crucian Carp, Mirror Carp, Tench, Rudd, Roach, Dace and also Langoustins) of all sizes and is a fisherman’s dream. Sit by the side of the lake on a summer’s evening and watch the deer that come down from the woods to drink from it and feed the ducks in the morning, as they scramble up the bank. Walk around the lake at dawn and listen to the bird calls echoing across the valley. If you feel energetic, join Jan, a qualified coach in Chinese Martial Arts, by the lake, doing Tai Chi Chuan as the sun comes up.

For those even more adventurous, you can always take our small boat out onto the lake for fishing or just for a bit of fun.
