Gléhias is set in the heart of the beautiful Bretagne countryside and offers superb French carp fishing in tranquillity and seclusion.  Made up of two spring-fed lakes, you book both lakes as a complex.


Gléhias also offers a unique experience in the form of a Floating Cabin housing the lake facilities; toilet, kitchenette and diner with seating that can convert into a sleeping area for two.


With the addition of lovely farmhouse accommodation, this is definitely a venue where you could take the whole family and relax knowing that they'll be happy while you enjoy some fabulous carp fishing.

The Specimen Lake Lauren is 3.2 acres in size and is home to carp up to over 45lb and catfish up to 65lb.  The 2014 season sees the addition of the Coarse Lake William, which is slightly bigger than its sister lake at 3.6 acres and contains carp up to around 20lb.  The two lakes give a combined total of 6.8 acres of water to fish.

 

There is a complimentary continental breakfast provided each morning consisting of coffee & croissants. We also provide up to five unhooking mats free of charge. This should help you to save valuable space in your vehicle and hopefully be a bit less whiffy in there on the way home!


'Excellent place, where dreams are made.'

French carp fishing at Glehias

 

The Specimen Lake (Lake Lauren)

Lake Lauren sits adjacent to a small forest and is set in a 10 acre protected plot attracting a variety of rare and beautiful wildlife, including eagles, owls, kingfishers and the occasional red squirrel.

At 3.2 acres in size, it varies in depth from 0.6m to 2.4m, and is lined with irises, bulrushes, foxgloves and overhanging trees and shrubs. Gorgeous surroundings to enjoy superb French carp fishing. 

 

There is ample room for 4 anglers and their bivvies between the six decked swims, with the other two banks being overgrown with trees, gorse and reeds giving excellent features to fish to.

The Coarse Lake (Lake William)

The 2014 season saw the opening of the coarse lake ‘Lake William’.  Lake William is set adjacent to, and at 3.6 acres is slightly bigger than, its sister lake.  The lake is almost triangular in shape and is fishable from two banks, lined with overhanging trees, gorse, bulrushes, irises, foxgloves, etc. The remaining side banks onto a small forest from which the spring that feeds the lakes originates. The coves along this bank make for great holding areas for the fish.

‘Goose Island’ is about a third of the way up from the point of the lake and measures around 8m by 3m and stands in about 1m of water.  It has 2 bays on the front edge and each of these have a gully dug down to 1.2m in front of them.

The Floating Cabin that houses the facilities - toilet, kitchenette/diner with seating that can convert to a sleeping area for two - can be accessed via a wooden pontoon bridge from ‘Lagoon Walk’.

The lake complex is fenced and gated with a combination lock. The two lakes are only meters apart.

A 0lb Carp from Glehias

Neither lake had ever been fished before 2005, and the original stock of carp can only be guessed at.

Specimen Lake 'Lake Lauren': Additional carp were stocked in February 2006 consisting of 68 fish, including 22 carp between 30lb and 42lb, plus several grass carp, and koi.

Since then a further 44 carp with an average weight of around 20lb have been added. There are also approximately 25 catfish, including 3 weighing between 47lb and an estimated 75lb+.

We estimate this brings the total carp count for this lake to around 100 fish with an average weight of around 26lb. This is a large number of fish for a 3 acre lake and should ensure everyone enjoys some rod bending action!

Coarse Lake 'Lake William': Stock-wise it holds about 400 Carp (mostly Commons) to just under 20lb, other species include; 25 Grass Carp-15lb+, 5 Albino Grass Carp-10lb, 60-80 Koi Carp-14lb+, Silverhead Carp, Crucian Carp, Tench, Golden Tench, Roach, Red Roach, Rudd, the odd Bream to 11lb and Bleak.

There are no poisson-chat or crayfish in either lake.

Facilities at Glehias

There are two sets of accommodation & facilities sleeping 6 persons in total, both included with the hire of the lake.

The Farmhouse Accommodation

The traditional French farmhouse accommodation, for up to four people, is set just a 5 minute walk from the lake.

There are three bedrooms - one double and two singles, shower and toilet. Downstairs there is a large reception room with two comfy sofas and a TV with some English Freeview channels. The kitchen has all you need for self-catering, including oven and hob, sink, kettle, microwave, fridge/freezer and toaster, plus a separate deep-freezer for bait. There are also several UK sockets for charging bait-boats and mobile phones, etc.

Bedding and tea-towels are provided, but you need to bring your own towels for the bathroom.

 

The Floating Cabin Accommodation

In addition to the farmhouse, you benefit from the unique Floating Cabin; a bespoke hexagonal timber cabin floating on the tranquil waters of the coarse lake, Lake William.  The cabin houses the on-site facilities - toilet, kitchenette/diner with seating that can convert to a large double bed. The kitchenette has a gas oven, hob and grill, fridge with ice-box, sink and kettle.

Constructed in natural materials and accessed via a wooden pontoon bridge from Lagoon Walk, the cabin looks right at home tucked-in amongst the reeds of stump lagoon. With a panoramic window you will be able to sit at the dining table (or in bed) and enjoy the views across the lake whilst enjoying a hearty meal. The platform is a generous 6m diameter, giving plenty of internal space for all the facilities and a comfortable decked walkway overlooking the lake and surrounding countryside.

There is also a BBQ at your disposal on Lake Lauren.

Bedding is automatically provided for the farmhouse, but not for the cabin.
