Welcome to Poplars Lake

This stunningly beautiful two acre lake is totally private and with its own entrance, it is a tranquil rural paradise for anglers who appreciate exclusive quality fishing on their own lake away from the pressures of modern living.

Orchid Lake in France - French Carp LakesThe lake has been designed for those who don’t want to have to work too hard to catch plenty of fish! It is heavily stocked with carp, mirrors, leathers and commons, with the best at the moment around 45lb, with many twenty-pound plus fish. There is a good head of Wels’ catfish to around 100lbs plus grass carp, roach and the odd perch completing the stock.

There is one large gravelled double swim for two carp anglers to fish together at the cabin end, and lots of scope for stalking around the rest of the lake. Only two carp anglers are allowed to fish, so as not to pressurise the fish too much. The perimeter of the lake is surrounded by overhanging trees and shrubs. There is a reed island, plus beds of lily pads and soft weed dotted here and there. Resident wildlife includes red squirrels, kingfishers and many species of song birds. The lake has its own orchard beyond the shallows, hence its name.

French Carp LakesThe accommodation is just a few yards from the double swim, and consists of a small log cabin with one ensuite bedroom with a separate outside entrance. The cabin consists of a comfortable main living area with double bed settee, English TV and DVD, a kitchen area with gas cooker, microwave, toaster, hot and cold water, sink, fridge/freezer, pans and crockery, storage cupboards. The bedroom has a double sofa bed and an adjoining small bathroom, containing a shower, English toilet and sink.

Outside the cabin is a barbecue and garden furniture. The cabin is suitable for two anglers, a couple or a small family. It is not suitable for larger parties. Well behaved dogs are allowed. Parking is right next to the cabin.

Like all our lakes a bait boat is recommended, but if you do not have one a small one-man boat is provided for baiting up and placing rigs, and large unhooking mats are also provided, both at no extra cost.

This is a truly stunning venue at a very reasonable price. We have clients who have booked this venue for years ahead, such is its popularity.
