About us


Welcome To Lac Serreire & Badger’s Holt – The Ultimate Big Carp Fishing experience in France. This stunning two lake complex, open since 2003, is set in the beautiful Limousin countryside just 20 miles south of the region’s capital Limoges.

Owned and operated by Simon and Corinna Mansbridge, Lac Serreire is a truly special French carp fishing venue. We have two superbly stocked lakes available to fish. Lac Serreire itself is about 20 acres in size and has an excellent stock of carp to 81lbs. Badger’s Holt is the smaller of the two in size only! This is predominantly a very big fish water, with 2016’s average weight being around 48lb, the biggest fish coming in at 79lb 14oz and a number of big carp close behind, including some very big commons to well over 6olb!

We run the lakes as true big carp waters for serious and experienced anglers wanting to catch some of the biggest fish available in truly stunning surroundings. 

Having carp fished for over 35 years, we have traditional ‘old school’ values and run the waters with this very much in mind; no overcrowding, no unnecessary rules and natural un spoilt surroundings.

Our aim is simple – To make every anglers visit to our lakes a very successful and memorable one. For any information about the fishery please contact us by e-mail at lacserreire@outlook.com or call us on: +33 587 75 49 24 at any time. We will do all we can to help.

Please note that these lakes are not suited to inexperienced anglers. The fishing can be challenging. We say this because we don’t want anglers to be disappointed and we also want to minimise the risks associated with inexperienced anglers handing very large carp. If you are not sure then please call us for a friendly chat and we can advise.

All our bookings run from 1pm on Saturday to 10am the following Saturday.
