Quality venue, Jamie and Natalie look after you from start to finish, it’s set in beautiful countryside, if you fancy a quality breakfast you can go up to the converted barns, or have breakfast roll on the bank, evening meals are bang on also. Showers/ toilets are immaculate. Now the fishing is not always easy, but when you start catching your fishing for quality hard fighting fish. The whole place is spotless. If you listen to Jamie the owner there’s no reason you shouldn’t catch. There’s a hut between two of the lakes which has charge points , microwave, fridge , freezer for your baits. These you would normally pay as an extra at most other lakes in France, this is all inclusive. These are small private lakes, the only noise is the Donkey at a farm in the distance. It’s only about 4 hour drive from Calais. The only thing I don’t like about this place is that I don’t live next door so I could fish it 3/4 times a week. ANDY MEAD
Recently fished Tall Trees with two of my mates in early October. We had 17 fish in total with two 40’s, seven 30’s, some great 20’s and a couple of high doubles. Jamie and Natalie are superb hosts,from the cooking and friendly chats to the advice Jamie gives to help you catch as many fish as possible.The lakes are beautiful and well stocked with some stunning fish, the showers are great the cabin is ideal for all your fishing needs. I would highly recommend visiting l’ecurie As it is so well run and is so peaceful, we will definitely be making a return visit. Just to say Jamie and Natalie, thank you for such a great week as we all thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you soon,
Richard, Gerry and Chris.
Me and my dad have just returned and are already working out when we can return, Jamie and Nat are great hosts from first enquiry to booking and then playing host we couldn’t have asked for more, me and my dad have very busy schedules and weren’t able to fish a whole week, so as soon as we arrived Jamie and Nat were eager to allow us to set up and get fishing whilst making sure we knew where all Facilities which are second to none, Jamie pointed out a few spots which often produce fish so on this advice myself and dad set up, within 2 hours of setting up Jamie’s advice prove to be spot on with myself banking my first French 30 followed by my new PB of 38.5lb, followed by a 32.5 from the same spot the next day, Jamie and Nat both allowed myself and dad to get on and fish just popping down to make sure we had all we needed. This trip was my dads 60th birthday present from my mum and although he didn’t manage one of the truly stunning carp he has said to my mum that it was the best present he could of asked for. Thank you Jamie and Nat for everything and we look forward to seeing soon. TONY AND TONY
me and mark smith had a week on orchard with mark smashing his pb twice and me 3 times had 22 fish that week with the biggest at 34lb and losing some lumps at the net. the hosts natalie/Jamie were fantastic couldn’t ask for better hosts then them two treat us to some lovely meals while we were there and the breakfast was ace just what you needed to start the day we hope to be back soon.
kind regards russ/mark
Fished here at Les Etangs for the second time. As always great venue, great fish in superb condition. Jamie and Natalie excellent hosts, though we felt for Natalie in that kitchen with the heat!, and Jamie local knowledge invaluable.
Thank you and look forward to coming back again.
Mark,Chris and Iian
Just had a amazing week on tall trees lake and have to say it was a great week the owners of the venue are brilliant people and couldn’t do enough for us ……
The other anglers where spot on on the other 2 lakes …
I will be making a return trip very soon . PETE PERRIN
Awesome venue first class owners we have just had a great week everything you need or want is at this 5* venue natalie cooks a wicked breakfast and jamie is on hand to point you in the right direction should you need it the showers and toilets always clean and fishermans cabin well kitted out. Lovely fish pristine condition well worth a visit don’t all book at once leave a week next year free for us
THANKYOU NATALIE AND JAMIE. LEE JAMES
Fantastic immaculate venue, jamie and natalie are fantastic hosts,stunning immaculate hard fighting fish, amazing food, very clean showers and toilets, excellent fishermans cabin with all you need. fished tall trees and had two 40lb+ PB pristine mirrors within 12 hrs of each other, well worth putting some effort in to catch these stunning fish, can’t wait to return. PAUL NOLAN
A great venue with excellent hosts in Jamie and Nat. We had a tricky week and had to work hard for our fish, the biggest at 40lb 5oz. The weather and previous spawning played their part but didn’t detract from a gem of a venue. The lakes are unspoilt and natural but with facilities to hand, and food packages which we would highly recommend. This is not a runs venue but offers the right balance between challenge and sport.
We will come back again and would recommend this venue to anybody looking for an exclusive lake to rent. In a few years the fish stock will rival many of the well known venues. JASON FALKNER
Loved our week here…beautiful setting, owners are lovely helpful people…. enjoyed the fishing so much we are going back in September. STEPHEN AND JENI
We fished tall trees from the 2nd of September 2017, and we had an amazing week with 15 fish 7 of those being 30+ and a double take with a brace of 30s when was about to reel in to end our holiday. Jamie and Natalie where fantastic hosts and really looked after us
Jamie even got in the lake to cut branches back to try and improve the chance of catching more fish for us
All I can say is we will be definitely be back next year and can not wait
LUKE, DAVE AND PAUL
Just got back from a fantastic week on tall trees, with 21 fish between 2 of us up to 36.12. Jamie and Natalie could not have done anymore for us if they had tried. Great host and great fishing, what more could you want. MICHAEL ANGELO RANSOM
Don’t book this venu, we are greedy and want this venu kept secret and all to ourselves 🤣
Wow what can I say that has not already been said before, a proverbial place of peace and tranquility backed up with 5 star hospitality from Natalie & Jamie
Fished many places around France and this has impressed us so much we booked for next year before we even left our swim.
Vets,supermarket,tobacconist all 5 mins away on one simple road. Left turn and your there.
9 stunning fish on the bank, 4 Wiley ones that got away to leave us wanting more next year.
Oaks is a truly stunning carp fishing venu that ticked everyone of our fishing strategies and set ups.
Old school and Delkim it has it all for you.
Thanks Natalie & Jamie see you in 2018. PAUL BRUM
Well just back from my 5th trip to lecurie and once again another awsume trip! 12 fish for the week on the Trees, mostly 20’s but two 30’s but after the heat wave the week before my leads were still coming back warm that’s a result in my book!
Jamie & Natalie the perfect hosts as usual 👌 Thanks for another great week guys keep it going.
Great weeks fishing, hospitality from Jamie and Natalie was awesome. Showers and toilets felt like you were at home. Seen and caught some lovely fish in oaks will definitely be back in the future. DAVID PETTIT
Debbie and myself had the best time ever great lakes and Jamie and Natalie can’t do enough for you. CARL FOGG
This is a superb place. Jamie and Natalie make you feel welcome from the start of your trip right through to when you leave. Fished on The Oaks which is a beautiful lake and, despite the fact the weather was unseasonably cold for end April, caught some lovely carp. Will definitely go next year to soak up the beautiful surroundings and try to catch the big common! MARK GROOM
Had a brilliant time.
Lovely lakes and fish
Breakfasts were amazing
Cheers from Tim and Andy.
Jamie and Natalie are very friendly welcoming and helpful that take great pride in their lakes fish and insuring you trip is a please my one would highly recommend to people planning a trip to France and will definitely be going back again. STEVEN Jb RUDDICK
A very big thank you to Jamie and Natalie for a fantastic weeks fishing excellent food beautiful place some cracking fish caught not a mark on them well worth a visit looking forward to the 29th of April where we’ve booked 2 lakes thanks again. LEE HEWITSON
Brilliant week me and lee Hewitson as had here good fishing and brilliant hospitality and food is awesome also booked for the next trip before we left strongly recommend. DANIEL ROSE
Loved my first trip. Jamie & Nat were great hosts .Meals were fantastic.Highly recommend.Can’t wait to go back .Thank you Jamie & Nat. LORI BAILEY
I can only repeat what everyone else has said about this venue, and how nice it is. All three lakes are very well looked after, along with the spotless shower block.
The week we attended the weather was against us with the freak cold spell in April. We had rain, snow, blizzards, and icy cold Northerly winds. This slowed the fish down dramatically, but we still managed to get a few out between us. The carp we did catch were immaculate, and such hard fighting fish in the shallow water.
We had the breakfast package which was an enormous fresh baguette brought down to us at the lake every morning, and my goodness it sorted you out for the day. (I could smash one now just thinking about it)
Jamie and Natalie were the perfect hosts and will do as much as they can to make your week an enjoyable one.
If you are considering coming to France and want a beautiful, quiet, peaceful venue with stunning then this is the place for you.
Thank you Jamie and Natalie for everything, hopefully see you again soon.
Neil and Nick
There’s nothing I can write here that’s not a repeat of what others have put. Jamie and Nat can’t do enough for you. Nestled in the heart of beautiful countryside, the venue is stunning. The only sounds your hear us the birds and local wildlife, mixed in with heavy carp jumping sometimes at your feet. The catch reports that suck you in don’t lie, the bites can come out the blue, or from teasing liners long into the night. The fish are hard fighting power machines. The local shop is 5 minutes for most if what you need. The lakes are full of over hangs and holes that will keep you guessing as to where the carp might be. It’s an all round friendly environment that will entice you back year after year. I could not recommend this enough to someone. ADAM CHAMBERLAIN
Another great trip , top hospitality and good food see you next year for the 5th visit. DAVID LOVELL
Well done Dave on the first 40 from the Orchard, and a big hats off to J&N now the stress of netting all seems worth it…… See ya soon
Had a great week fishing the Orchard, both beating our Pbs. Place is beautiful and tranquil. Jamie n Natalie can’t do enough for you, Natalie’s cooking is lovely. First time in france for both of us, can’t imagine going anywhere else now. Would recommend a trip there too everyone. See you both again next year.
Mark n lee
What a fantastic week we had on the orchard, caught 31 fish(the most ever caught in 1 week on that lake) which included 2 x 40+ and 6 x 30+ , this is a place I would highly recommend to anyone, Natalie and Jamie are just the perfect hosts and Natalie’s cooking is just out this world, Jamie really knows his lakes and his advice on where to fish was just spot on, I will definitely be back to go for the big common that’s not been seen on the bank yet
Thanks Jamie and Natalie for everything and hopefully see you very soon
Had a far too brief weekend (7/8 July) fishing Tall Trees. Simply amazing, lots of fish, lots of sunshine and utter peace and tranquility. Natalie & Jamie are just the consumate hosts. Nothing, and I do mean nothing is too much trouble. They just want you to have a great time. Breakfast was delicious and their company was even better.
If Carlsberg did fisheries they would create this one……… and Nat & Jamie would still be running it.
Thanks both for making our weekend extra special.
Had the best week ever, Natalie and Jamie are brilliant. The facilities and food are top class. The fishing was fantatsic. This is my second visit and I already can’t wait to plan next years trip! Highly recommend anyone visiting this complex. Robin
Brilliant week, if your after a peaceful and gorgous place, this is it. Really nice and helpful owners Jamie and Natalie cant do enough for you. The fishing was slow for some reason but the surroundings definately made up for it. We will be going back next year.
Cheers Natalie and Jamie.
We recently fished the Orchard for 5 days, great fishing beating my PB 3 times, tranquil settings, great food and amenities from the hosts Jamie and Natalie.
Our thanks to you for making us feel very welcome
Have a great summer
Mark & Chris Robbins
Thanks for a great week, can’t knock the place everything was spot on, food was lovely, very friendly and helpfull bailiffs. The fish scrap well and are in immaculate condition. Highly recommend. Will Clayton
Just completed a week on Tall Trees from the 16th of May and it is just as everyone else has reported in previous comments the guys that run it Jamie and Natalie are just fantastic nothing is too much trouble for them. There are some really big fish in these lakes and although i didn’t catch as many as i would have liked i did break my own PB with every fish that i caught topping off with a 32.2lb mirror and missed a few as well. Go for the food package as A its really good and B it gives you a chance to catch up with all the other people on the 3 lakes to share all those fishing tails. If i could give marks out of 10 for venues i have fished then this one will get a 10 every time,hopefully we can return next year for another go at the big ones hiding in Tall Trees.
We did a week on Tall Tree’s from the 16th of May until the 23rd of May. The fishing was exceptional, I broke my PB within 2 hours of arriving and went on to break it 3 more times!. The lakes and the surrounding area are stunning and Jamie and Natalie have done an incredible amount of work to keep everything looking the way it should. All the fish are in superb condition and really put up a great fight. It is only a matter of time before this venue produces fish exceeding 50Lb.
The food package is a must as you can not beat a proper cooked breakfast to set you up for a days fishing. Food is served in a Barn/Outbuilding and this gives you a great opportunity to meet the other anglers and see whats going on on the other lakes on the complex. I would give this venue 10 out of 10 and its only a matter of time before I go back to try and beat my PB 41lb fish caught on the last day.
Many thanks to Jamie & Natalie for all your help and advice ( and cooking )
Had an amazing week with Jamie (Simon ;0)) and Nat. Beautiful lakes, amazing fish and lovely hot showers, clean loos, a fridge, toaster and kettle too! We were spoilt :0). Booking again for next year, can’t recommend these lakes and hosts highly enough. Louise Clift
great place spotless showers and toilets .lakes well set out swims very good..love the place and u will not find a better team jamie and natalie are realy nice people the food was great.and they can not do enough to make your stay a enjoyable one.have re booked for sept this year .10/10 well done . your friend peter batram ,batty
If you are looking for a venue that has some really good fish to catch, spotless washrooms/toilets, pleasant surroundings, good food and welcoming hosts, look no further than this location Les Etangs De L’Ecurie. Both my brother and me beat our PBs and I was lucky enough to break the venue record by catching “Grace” from Tall Trees. I must say that Natalie and Jamie went the extra mile to ensure our stay with them was extraordinary. In short you have everything here to make your trip to France a really memorable one, make sure it’s at the top of your list to visit and as “Arnie” said “I’ll be back”.
We both had a thoroughly enjoyable week fishing The Oaks. Both Jamie and Natalie were excellent hosts. Facilities were very good and the food package is a must and saves all the hassle of shopping and cooking.
Would unhesitatingly recommend and we hope to return.
Firstly, I would recommend this fishery to anyone !
Jamie and Natalie are the perfect hosts and make you feel very welcome. Strongly advise you choose the food package as Natalie’s cooking is amazing.
Jamie offers advise if required, which can be useful if you are having a slow start.
I fished Orchard from 4th Oct > 8th Oct.
I fished the farm house end of the lake with the ‘tall tree’ opposite.
I selected three swims:
A conifer just to the right of ‘tall tree” opposite
‘Dead bush’ which hangs into the water opposite ( deadly ! )
‘Maple tree’ to your right opposite bank.
I managed 10 fish, 8 from ‘Dead Bush’, 1 from Maple and 1 from top left corner of lake.
All fish caught on Garlic boilie.
Size 8 micro-barbed hooks on blow out rigs tied to braid, 6″ long with 18″ rig tube.
Used flying back leads on all to pin line down.
I can also recommend the mobile home. It was very clean and spacious
Thanks Jamie & Natalie, see you next year !!
nice haul Kevin ! Thanks for the feedback. Fishing Oaks in a few days time. Martyn
cant say enough of this place, first of all the host’s were fantastic and they just cant do enough for you,meals are top notch sure i went home with a few stone more around the waist lol,i fished tall trees and its just a great lake to fish ,i just cant thank Jamie and Natalie enough for a great week !!! LEE EYERS
Had a wonderful week with Jamie n Natalie great hosts, PB achieved weather spot on, what more could you ask for. X. PAUL MILLARD
Got back from le curie,after what was a disastrous start to the week being involved inn an accident on the way to le curie. The holiday was saved by Jamie who drove over two hours to collect the equipment,myself and lee No words can thank him really,Jamie and Natalie are a genuinely nice couple who go out of their way to give you the best fishing holiday they possibly can. We fished The Orchard ,Lee had a lake record and P.B. of 37 lb 4 oz along with 8 other fish…..I had 7 fish all Mirrors,all 20 lb+ with the biggest being 29lb 12 oz. All 3 lakes are stunning,if you want a commercial fishing holiday ,not for you,but if you want 1st class unobtrusive personal service on any one of 3 stunning lakes in beautiful old french surroundings this place is for you. Breakfast at your bivvy or in a quaint old french*barn* and the same for evening meal. I think Jamie and Natalie have got this venue spot on,please dont change it. I would recommend El Curie to anyone and hopefully will be going back next year! SEBASTIAN NOHOPE
Great venue, with Great Lakes and hard fighting fish. Exceptional hosts, hats off to Jamie & Natalie for their hard work so far, this venue is sure to be a winner. Looking forward to coming back & hopefully finding the 40s (hopefully 50s by the time we are back). GRAHAM CONGREVE.
EXCELLENT, would highly recommend this fishery to anyone, i fished the orchard had a cracking weeks fishing with some amazing fish not to mention the 35lb mirror which is the biggest fish out that lake at the minute. Jamie and Natalie are very very nice people i coudnt have asked for better people, thank you both so much for a great week…. SIMON PARKIN.
Following a challenging few days fishing following some freak weather we had a great time and wished we could have stayed the week. Location is perfect, facilities great and the food top notch. Would thoroughly recommend lac L’Ecurie. Jamie and Natalie were perfect hosts, happy to answer any questions and very accomodating. We would love to return someday.
Paul and myself fished the Orchard in April, on arrival we met Jamie and Natalie who made us feel welcome from the offset. (They are truly great hosts) the Orchard didn’t fish as good as we hoped due to nature! the fish started spawning, but still a good few fish between us. Dan and Lorraine on the Trees had a cracking week, great company and hats off to Lorraine for still having a smile on her face with the very interchangeable weather.x. The whole package for this venue is excellent! defiantly 9/10.
Well it’s made Paul myself and Rob ( who couldn’t make it last time ) book up for a second trip in October can’t wait !!!!!
3 lakes with max 7 anglers. very very pretty place. carp to 50lb by next season for sure. no long casting needed. caught all mine in margins. and they love the northern monkey’s!! im going again for sure. DAN SOULSBY.
A beautiful place and 2 fantastic hosts ,we had an amazing week fishing , laughing and chilling out , we would definitely like to return one day. LORRAINE BOLTON.
Lovely venue in beautiful settings . The food was spot on. Natalie and Jamie were extremely helpful and couldn’t do enough for us . Definately a venue with a bright future 9/10. COLIN COURT.

NICK HOLLAMBY.
