    Anyone know of any exclusive use venues up to 2.5/3 acres, suitable to a single angler but can accomadate 2 (the misses likes to dabble). Perferabley with a kitchenette/lodge house to use as well

    Thanks in advance

    Looks nice, local area looks ok as well, and the price including getting there would still work out as a cheap family holiday.

    The other place I looked at to take the wife andkids, plus a few mates who would bivvy up whilst me and the family had the house was here -

    Again, it'd work out cheap splitting the cost with those fishing full time whilst me and the family did holiday stuff during the days and me and the lad slinging out a couple of rods in the evenings.

    Do you know how much rivets charge for wifi?
    Get a pre paid data bundle on your phone and use it as a wifi hot spot at ridelee?

    No idea as to what they charge at Rivets ,

    In this day and age you would think they would have internet ,and that would come as standard .

    As for being charged internet yet give you Sat TV free, nice venues but im sure their equally as good out their.

    Had a very good week at Carp Invasion last year just with my wife. Sailed from Poole and then just half an hour from Cherbourg. Well recommended early season if you can get a good deal like we did.

    If you mean Etangs de Breton it is worth a look.

    Went there a couple of times about 8 years ago, both times on Birches Lake. The accommodation is pretty basic, corrugated iron toilet/shower block, 1 bedroom static caravan etc. They may have updated by now, I don't know.

    Poplars lake accommodation looked a bit better, but we (me and a mate) preferred Birches.
