Description and Special Features:
This quite special Venue will be particularly attractive to families who have a keen Fly Fisherman/woman in the family as it boasts about 2/3rds of a mile of Chalk Stream River Frontage and Fly Fishing can be Booked as part of your Holiday, either per day or per week. Three Fly Fishing enthusiasts in one Group is the maximum allowed. The River has plenty of Brown Trout and Grayling.
This Venue is generally quiet and is about half a mile from a super Village Pub and a very good Village Shop (Post Office). It extends to 20 acres, a large part of which is Woodland and the remainder level Pasture. There are numerous areas where you can camp close to the River Bank aswell as in a fairly large sheltered Paddock which would be more suitable for families with younger children.

Wild Water Swimming in the River bordering the Venue. In the absence of Fishermen it is possible to enjoy a dip in the River. If Fishermen are present keep further downstream to avoid them. Entirely at your own risk. Children must be supervised. They love it!
