Stephen, Kathy & Dan Eastwood: Warm Welcome Back

Warm Welcome Back

By Stephen, Kathy & Dan Eastwood on 5 October 2019

Warmly welcomed back to Oakview. All of us have made the most of our week here. The cottage is very comfortable and feels like a real home from home, except for the new oven (Confused.com!). The only addition we think would be a help would be a heater (since put in place for the Autumn). The whole site is a credit to your hard work Martin and Shirley.

Once again a great week and accommodation second to none. Great to see Martin and Shirley again - had a peaceful and relaxing week, apart from being interrupted by the fish! Many thanks, Geoff & Little Wilf.

Lost Count Of Our Visits

By Phil and Jan Calladine on 21 September 2019

Oakview never fails to deliver: Excellent hosts as always; great accommodation; stunning surroundings and great fishing. Lost count of our visits, but back in 2020 (twice) - you can't have too much of a good thing (think I wrote that last time!!). Many thanks, Phil & Jan.

Oakview Lake Netting August 2018

Summer removal of small fish provides a rare opportunity to see lots of big carp in mid season. Not a full carp count this time, but interesting to compare the spawned out fish with the fat bellies we see at a winter netting.

51lb 10oz Carp Smashes Oakview Lake Record

Oakview Lake Rated Amongst Top Carp Fishing Venues in France

You have to be very confident about your venue before you give an angler like Paul Cooper the chance to scrutinise it in every detail. Long time friend he may be, but that doesn't mean he'll tell you (and everyone else) what you want to hear. Paul gets to fish the lake and then see the lake netted. Here's what he had to say.

Big Fish Haul Smashes Record. Average Carp Size 38lb.

Philip Anderson took the lake apart in terms of big carp during his family fishing holiday. Philip and his son James landed 18 carp with a whopping average size of 38lb. Philip banked 6 forties, the most 40 pound carp caught by a single angler. That's great fishing even for France and on this occasion, Phil's wife Tracy was also there to see it.
