This venue will impress anyone looking for carp fishing in France with accommodation - the large stone house and its extensive covered terrace overlook a sweeping lawned garden which leads to an idyllic little lake. Previously a private family home for many years, this place really is something special.

The lake is small compared to most at 1.7 acres, but can accommodate up to 3 anglers at any one time, with a variety of swims and a decked area at one end.

The ideal venue for a family get-together or groups of friends, the house sleeps up to 12 people in the 6 bedrooms. However, as this is a new venue, for 2018 the price depends on how many people are in your group, meaning that it can prove affordable even for just two people! Get a quote here and check it out for yourself.

Whilst Tylans Lake is not yet a big fish water it will certainly provide a lot of fun for a carp and coarse angler, with the average weight at around 20lb and the biggest going into the 40's.

Located just to the east of Mayenne, the lake is an easy 1hr 50min drive from the nearest port of Caen, 2hr 30min from Le Harve and 4hr 30min from Calais.

Carp fishing in France at Tylans Lake

Owners Ty and Michelle have owned Tylans Lake since 2003. French neighbours tell us that the lake has been there ever since they were kids and they are now in their seventies.

The lake was drained down in 2005 to do some extensive work in terms of de-silting, tree extraction plus enlarging the lake to its current size of just under two acres. Depths range from around 1m to 3.5m.

Long in shape and with castable far banks the lake should prove fairly straight-forward to fish, though bait boats would be an advantage if you wish to get tight to the bank under overhanging trees. It offers a choice of six natural swims and will comfortably accommodate two anglers at a time - allowing you lots of choice and the option of baiting up different areas or stalking, etc.

There is a sunken tree on a small island, central to one end of the lake, providing a snaggy feature to fish to, but keep your lines tight! We have had no issues with poisson chat or crayfish. 

For those interested in our feathered friends you will see and hear an enormous variety of birds in and around the garden and lake area. Some of which include - kingfisher, woodpeckers, buzzards, hoopoes, owls, plus many more.

A 0lb Carp from Tylans Lake

Tylans Lake is stocked with carp mainly around the low twenties mark, with the largest now over the forty pound barrier. The lake is not heavily stocked so it is unlikely to be a runs water, however the carp have previously seen very little in the way of angling pressure and it should provide fairly straight forward fishing for any member of the family!

A full lake netting and the removal of silver fish and smaller nuisance carp took place in November 2017 and we expect to see these carp grow well over the next few years.

The Accommodation

Downstairs you'll find a large kitchen diner with range cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. This leads through to a double height hallway with pool table and then onto the large living room. This is complete with log burner, comfy settees & full-length windows overlooking the garden and lake.

The upstairs has six bedrooms in total, sleeping a maximum of twelve people (thirteen including the day bed in the master bedroom).

The impressive master bedroom has an en-suite and large patio doors opening onto a balcony complete with table and chairs. Again this has stunning views over the garden and lake. There is also a day bed in this room that would be suitable for a child if necessary.

The other five bedrooms consist of three more double bedrooms (one kingsize, two double) and two twin bedrooms. A fold-up travel cot can also be provided on request.

Satellite/UK TV, wifi, pool table, toys/games, outdoor games, etc are available to keep the non-anglers occupied. We even have a bouncy castle available to hire for a small daily/weekly charge which is great for keeping the younger ones occupied whilst mum enjoys a cuppa or a glass of wine on the terrace. 

There is a separate fridge/freezer for your bait in the utility room. You will also find the washing machine here. 

Bed linen is included and we supply tea-towels in the kitchen, but ask that you bring your own hand/bath towels.
