Beautiful 2.5 acre lake with fisherman’s lodge in Normandy
The property is in an idyllic position and the Lodge looks over the lake. In total there is over 5 acres, including some woodland. The property could be enjoyed as a permanent home or as a holiday home rented with the lake on private use for £1,250 a week. Alternatively the lake can be hired out at £650 a week (from 2019) for private use which includes a caravan. The lake is a Category C closed lake which is stream fed – 5ft – 7ft in the deep end and 1 ft in the shallows. There are 4 or 5 swims. It is well stocked with common and mirror carp, catfish and a sturgeon with weights up to 40lb. The lake is open for rentals with a good amount of bookings for 2018 and some for 2019, with a healthy past and present client base. Viewing is highly recommended.
