Terms & Conditions

A huge amount of time, effort and money has been spent to make sure we have some of the best Carp Fishing in France today. It isn’t an accident we have some very big Carp in Forest View Lake and they do so well here, this is due to the quality of the water and the care we take. You have a significant part to play in maintaining this situation and we ask that you take great care of yourselves and of the fish and their habitat as well as the surrounding woodland. Thank you very much for your support.

Fishing lakes and their environs are by their very nature potentially dangerous areas and it is important that you extend the greatest care when visiting Forest View Carp Lake not only for your own personal safety but for the safety of everyone in your party. For this reason it is the responsibility of the person booking the lake for a fishing trip to make sure all parties do read the terms and conditions and payment of the appropriate hire fees represent your confirmation that this has happened.


Forest View Carp Lake and its owners, managers, employees and volunteers are not liable for any injury or death on or around its location howsoever caused. The rules and regulations surrounding the lake and its use set out the need to exercise common sense and adopt a safety conscious attitude at all times and to fully utilise the safety equipment supplied in the form of life jackets, smoke blankets, row boats etc.

On average, approximately 25% of adult drowning deaths each year involve alcohol, with 44% of these occurring near rivers, creeks and streams. A further 9% of these occur in lakes, dams and lagoons.
