The Retreat - Best gite we have been to in 20 Years

Andy (the angler) and Sue Rudduck came to The Retreat from 4 to 11 October and caught 35 carp, including 2 x 30's and 10x 20's. Strategy used was KD rig, reverse snowman with 15kgs of pellet and 10kgs of boilies. Both reported that the gite was very clean and the best equipped they had ever been to, having been to quite a few in the past 20 years. They would have no hesitation in recommending The Retreat to family or friends and would like to thank Pat and Phil for being briilant hosts, with nothing having been too much trouble and their help with the car.

The Retreat - Great runs water with 68 fish in a week!

Andrew and Natalie came to The Retreat from 20 to 27 September and caught a total of 68 fish, not even fishing nights! 67 Carp and 1 catfish, with 5x 30's and 19x 20's. Mainly commons, which was a nice change. Stragegy used was sticky vortex with chopped boilie and pellet with a bait boat to margins and changing spots. Baited up every evening and kept lines out of water......which paid dividends. Andrew and Natalie also commented that the facilities were great. The gite was very comfortable amd homely. Hot water and washing machine were a godsend. Pat and Philip were very accommodating hosts and happy to help with anything, even cooking us a meal on the last night which was lovely. Fish were stunning and in very good condition.
