5 - 12 April

Thanks Alan & Jill, fantastic place. Had a great time, banked 50 fish including a Common of 32lb 13oz, 31lb 14oz Mirror. Had 26 fish between 20 - 27lb 6oz. Harry got a new pb

Would recommend using a bait boat to keep pellet and boillies going in the same spot once you find the fish, and don't be shy with it .

Superb accomodation, spotless, well maintained lake, fantastic hospitality, loads of fun to be had with the fish putting a bend in your rods, all in all had a fantastic week, &
George & Dudley, ( the dogs ) were great. Will see you again.

Second visit to LBB, great week, accomodation exceptional as usual. Weather and air pressure against us, but still managed to catch 40 fish to 32lb 5oz. Lots of fish caught were 20lb +. Well done Charmian for catching her first grass carp of 23lb 5oz, Sally, on her first visit managed 5 fish totaling 130lb. Ady & Mark both had hooks bent by really good fish but both unfortunately lost them. Well done to young Riley for catching his pb of 18lb 7 oz, and  Ady even managed to get em going off the top with some nice fish over 20lb.

Thanks Alan & Jill for making us welcome had a top week, will see you again soon.

31st May-6th June

What a fantastic week, 3rd visit, place gets better and better each time. Caught approx 100 fish, which included Pb's of Mirror, Common and Grass Carp for both of us. Used bait boat to fish tree margins, island and open water. Had five 30lb+ fish topped by a cracking 33lb 5oz common. 55 fish between 20lb & 25lb. 27 fish between 25lb & 30lb. Most fish came on Alan's boillies, with a change of pop up corn fished over a bed of sweetcorn. Took a few off the top to mid 20's also.

Facilities brilliant as usual, cannot fault the placeand will be back for 2 weeks (hopefully) next year.

Thanks Alan and Jill for a great holiday


Your accomodation is superb. All you want , home from home, nice bit of luxury. Had a good week catching, 50+ fish. Had plenty of 20's. 10 x 25lb - 30lb.. Best fish 30lb 2oz common.

Best tactics were to use bait boat to get under trees in the shade.Once you find the fish give them a good amount to keep them there. Bottom baits worked best.

Really nice well maintained suroundings and flat banks, all in all nice place for a weeks fishing holiday, even with the wife.


An idyllic setting, with a totally natural lake one could only dream of. Everything so beautifully well kept, therefore the facilities exceeded our expectations, I will be putting your card in our local fishing shops.

Alan's assistance has been invaluable, nothing is too much trouble for him. Jill and Alan are the perfect hosts, as for Dudley and George, ( dogs ), their entertainment and friendliness compliments their owners exeptional welcome.

We caught approx 40 fish, ranging from 12lb - 24lb, but could not get bigger ones to feed. Also had 2 pike of 17lb 80z, 16lb 3 0z.

Will see you again, many thanks 

Brian, Tony, Jeff.


Great accomodation, Alan & Jill fantastic hosts, could not do more. Shame the weather slowed the fishing down at times, need to come back for the bigger ones that got away.

Even so still managed around 50- 60 fish for the week, including a  nice looking Common of 28lb 5oz, Mirrors of 29lb 13oz,, 28lb 9oz, 26lb 11oz, 3 between 24lb - 25lb and numerous 20lb+ fish

We enjoyed the fishing very much, and enjoyed a very relaxing was just what we needed to recharge our batteries.

You have a great lake in wonderfull surroundings, and some very hard fighting fish, long may it continue.

Thank you once again, hope to see you again soon. Les Basses Berthieres is definately on our radar for a return visit- we have some unfinished business at the lake.

LBB regulars Eddie & Tom returned for their 3rd year running, for some quality carp fishing and peace and quite . Fishing got off to a good start with fish to mid 20's gracing the bank. As the week went on, fish in the 20lb- 25lb came at a steady pace to keep a constant bend in their rods . Using the bait boat to reach the over hanging trees was the best tactic. About 30 - 40 fish landed during the week with just daytime fishing. Best fish was a nice 28lb 6oz Mirror, and a few decent fish lost.

Accomodation up to it's fantastic very high standard, look forward to seeing you next year, thank you Jill & Alan

Back again for 3rd visit, as usual everything nice, clean and tidy, normal standard. Fishing started a bit slow but Elaine soon caught some nice fish to upper 20's. Picked up a bit as week went on, but weather a bit indifferent. Fish started coming on a bit more and Elaine banked a nice 32lb Mirror, Richard eventually found some fish and had a nice Common of 25lb along with a few 20's. About 30+ fish caught for the week so not too bad as wether not very settlesd..

Thanks once again Jill & Alan, see you next year.

Elaine, Richard, Mark
