Carp Venues in the UK & France

Petit Pretre

The Little Priest (Petit Pretre) carp fishing lakes are situated in the beautiful Champagne Ardennes region of France just a 4 hour drive from Calais.


The lakes are over 400 years old, originally used by Monks – hence the name. Today Petit Pretre consists of 3 main lakes set in a mature 52 acre woodland setting offering a quiet and secluded location.


The main lake is about 7.5 acres which was excavated and stocked in 2007/08 with over 2 ton of common and mirror carp weighing in at 30 to 55 lbs.


The Gun Lake is about 6 acres and opened in spring 2010. It is also well stocked with a range of carp weighing to 50 lbs.  


We can accommodate up to 13 anglers on the 2 lakes making it ideal for exclusive parties of 6 on the Gun Lake, 7 on the Main Lake or 13 on both lakes.


We have great facilities which include the Club House / Dining Room with recharging points, kitchen which we use for preparing on-site food and the shower / toilet chalet. All are close to each other and the two lakes.


Finally, we offer great bait packages for the fish and an excellent full board offering for our guests too – so nobody goes hungry.
