Archipelago Lake is mature treelined 8 acre specimen carp lake located close to the Champeaux Region of France. On the same site next to Archipelago Lake is the Blue Lagoon, a small runs water of around 2 acres in size. Set in completely private grounds the lakes are three quarters of a mile away from the nearest road, railway or neighbours to ensure that you experience complete peace and tranquillity during your stay.

A maximum of 6 anglers can fish Archipelago Lake. Parties of up to 8 anglers are welcome provided that 2 anglers fish the Blue Lagoon.

Archipelago has a stock of approximately 110 carp the majority of which are over the 40lb mark, there are many carp over 50lbs and the lake record is currently a mirror of 67lb 10oz called Daisy. The largest common carp, GI Jones is 53lbs 4oz when last caught. A maximum of 6 anglers can fish Archipelago.

Blue Lagoon has a stock of around 200 fish with an average weight of 35lbs. This is more of a runs water and is limited to a maximum of 2 anglers. Since the lakes were acquired by the current owners they have undergone numerous drain downs and nettings to remove almost all nuisance fish and snags from the lake bed as well as being de-silted The fishery is completely enclosed and anglers can come and go from the fishery as they please.

There is a clubhouse, shower block and a gazebo social area. The owners will be on hand to offer advice and help if you request it but equally if you would prefer you can be left to figure the lake out for yourself. High quality unhooking mats, weigh slings, cradles, tripods, landing nets and even Reaben Heaten 240lb scales are provided free of charge.

Archipelago Lake

The lake is 8 acres and rectangular in shape meaning that it can be easily fished from all sides. Down the centre of the lake there is a row of small tree clad islands which offer plenty of features to fish to as well as acting as a divider across the lake and offering anglers opposite a degree of privacy. In addition to the islands you will find bars, narrow gullies and overhanging tree which can all be productive areas to fish to. It goes without saying don’t forget your market rod as extra effort will be rewarded. Depths are between 2 and half and 8 feet in the deepest area.

An ancient woodland borders the south side of the lake which provides welcome shade in the heat of the day. There are 12 swims around the lake which have been well thought out all offering ample water coverage and features to fish to. Each swim can easy accommodate a bivvy and as there will only ever be a maximum of 6 anglers there will always be vacant swims to move into. Swims 6 and 7 or 8 and 9 are perfect for those wishing to fish close together particularly if one angler is overseeing a youngster or inexperienced angler who wishes to have their own swim. Swims 9, 10, 11 and 12 benefit from the shade as they back onto the edge of the woodland. Swims 1 to 5 get the sun most the day and the shallower water at this end of the lake can be very productive as the water temperature rises. Behind swims 6 and 7 there is shed which can be used for storing unused tackle and equipment.

You will find a rowing boat on either side of the lake which are for your unrestricted use. Bait boats are permitted and recommended. If you do not have your own these can be hired from the owners, however please arrange this well in advance of your trip.

The Blue Lagoon

At around 2 acres in size the Blue Lagoon was drained in 2015, cleared of all snags re-stocked with some original fish and some new fish in late 2016. The shallowest part of the lake is around 2 and half foot and deepest around 7 foot. The lake is clay bottomed with some silty areas and couple of patches of weed. There are 3 purpose built swims which can each accommodate a bivvy. There is a cabin at the west end of the lake which has some basic cooking equipment and also hot and cold running water.

Prices  – Saturday to Saturday bookings Exclusive Lake Booking – £1350 per week This is based on 5 anglers fishing Archipelago lake. A maximum of 6 can be included with 1 angler fishing the Blue Lagoon at an additonal cost of £250.
