|Oak Tree Cottage||Self Catering||Saturday||3||6||2||+ cot|
Oak tree cottage/formally Hunters Lodge is set in 9 1/2 acres of private land, the perfect place for a fantastic holiday offering peace and tranquillity in a rural atmosphere. It is situated in the small hamlet of Le Claray which is approx. 4km from the picturesque village of St-Aubin-de-Châteaux. It has all the amenities you need, a minimarket, bar, chemist, Post Office, bakers, butchers and brocante.
The cottage has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard. Oak tree cottage sleeps 6/7, has its own private swimming pool, and a one and half acre exclusive carp fishing and a coarse fishing lake, with carp over 20llb plus. Night fishing is allowed, micro barbed hooks only.
There are frenchdoors leading onto a private covered patio with swimming pool (27ft x 12ft), overlooking beautiful gardens with plenty of garden furniture, and a bbq.
Only 2km from Oak tree cottage there is a 4 acre carp fishing lake. That is run by Mark. It is completely private and set in the middle of a forest, so if you are a keen Angler and want to bring the family with you why not book both properties, the 4 acre lake and the Lodge.
We are open from 1st March to 31st October.
Short breaks available March to May - September to November

Just 5 mins from Le Claray is a superb lake called the Hunaudiere. It has a great crêperie and bar where you can sit by the lake relaxing while eating and drinking, its also in walking distance.The historic town of Chateaubriand is just 10km, Nantes, Rennes approx. 45 mins and the coast of La Baule or St Nazaire is approx. 1 hour. theres lots of places to walk and cycle and because its so quiet its also very safe on the roads. In Rouge there an equestrian centre which is approx 6klm if you fancy a little trot.
very pleasant location with everything you need.
Be aware the owners live next door.

We had a great week at Hunter's Retreat. The facilities were great - pool, tennis court, games room all keep the children amused and busy...ensuring relaxation for the adults. Fishing in the nearby lake with Mark was great fun. The cottage was lovely and quiet and in a very rural location - with a creperie within walking distance and a small village and bakery a few km away, the perfect way to get away from it all.
Spent 2 weeks at Hunters Lodge. It was a perfect holiday, Pam and Mark are the perfect hosts, very welcoming. Facilities are amazing something for everybody, setting is peaceful and not too far from shops. Would highly recommend it and will be returning as soon as we can!
thanks Deb,Gary,Andrew and Liz
