Work is continuing on the Millers cottage and this will be available for rent this summer along with the Old Mill House. Both have 3 bedrooms large lounge diners and fully equipped kitchens. Both Gites are set in private landscaped gardens. For only £550 for a week the accommodation is a real bargain. Situated only a few yards from the lake they make a great fishing holiday home. Please contact us for details of availability.


Redmill now consists of two venues. The original Redmill a 9 acre estate lake full of huge Commons and Mirrors and Le Monument a well stocked 5 acre carp lake and 2 acre catfish lake. Which ever venue you choose we will try our best to make your visit a memorable one.

Redmill is a beautiful 16th century lake and is as close as you will get to fishing a traditional English estate lake with the potential of a huge French Carp. Despite its age, it holds an abundance of natural food. Redmill was hand dug for peat extraction and this has created many underwater features with numerous silt beds, crusty peat and clear granite areas. Although you seldom see the fish on top you can only imagine the monsters that cruise below the overhanging weeping willows.

Redmill was established as a Carp fishery in 2002, and now, with careful stocking and some huge original fish, Redmill is one of the most stunning and well stocked Carp waters in France. Take a look at our - catch reports.

61lb 2oz
54lb 10oz
43lb 8oz

Redmill is set amongst 15 acres of beautiful woodland, and with the fully equipped fishing lodge set in a shady Poplar grove next to the lake it makes the ideal French Carp fishing holiday venue.

Anglers return year after year to fish Redmill, and those that choose to try other venues often come back. The quality of fishing and the beautiful surroundings are second to none. There is a good average size of Carp to over 60lb. With many 30's and 40's and more than the occasional 50 coming out. With Catfish exceeding 120lb and Grass Carp to 40lb+ there is plenty of opportunity to land other specimens

Please read our feedback page to find out how much other anglers have enjoyed their Redmill experience. However, even with such a large head of fish in 9 acres it is not always easy. You have to work hard to catch the fish but the rewards are certainly worth it.

Located in the centre of Brittany, Redmill is easily accessible from all northern French ports. The night ferries from Portsmouth or Plymouth are a relaxing way to travel with only a 1 hour drive from St Malo or 3hrs from Caen or Cherbourg. Ferries to La Havre are a more economical option with a 3.5 hour drive. Whichever way you decide to travel to Redmill, we are sure you will have a memorable time.
