General comments:
After last years trip to the same venue we have been looking forward to our return trip. Not to be disappointed by the fishing which as usual has been exceptional. Also the wonderful hospitality of the nicest couple in France, Chris & Steph who could not do enough for us. The food as usual was fantastic. Now Darren needs to diet or 6 months. Once again thanks to Chris & Steph for a fantastic week.

General comments:
Alder is to be recommended. Chris and Steph looked after us extremely well. Food great. Toilets to be improved by lake, shame no electricity by lake. Swims could be made safer for fish and people. Brambles on road to lake scratches cars, careful for exhaust on in ruts in road. Nevertheless a great time by all.

Name of customer:
Simon Gwinnett
Number of anglers:
5
Details of your catches:
5 grass carp to 23lb 28 x 20+ to 28lb 12 x 30lb + to 38lb

Your best tactics/bait/rigs:
Mixed tactics, boilies topped off with pop up or slow sinking plastic baits

Were the facilities what you expected?
Yes
Were you happy with them?
Generally however need updating. Food was very average/poor. Small portions & no extras. Kitchen was disgusting.

*Owners Comment*
This feedback came as a great surprise since we spoke to the Gwinnett party each day, we asked if the food was ok and the verbal feedback was all positive, it is difficult to reconcile how the food can be 'poor' yet they wanted even more of it. Our standard portions are large but if more was wanted we would have been delighted to oblige.

It is disturbing that Mr Gwinnett chose to snoop around the private portions of our gite, however the gite kitchen to which he refers is used as our bait preparation and storage area, food prep was in the main farmhouse kitchen

It is a shame that Mr Gwinnett didn't mention the PB's the group got or how we took his young son to another lake to get him into fish. He also didn't include any input from his brother who sought us out to emphasise what a great holiday he had had.

Would you recommend the venue to a friend?
Fishing yes. Alder is a beautiful place.
Food package give it a miss.
Would you recommend our services to a friend?
