Enjoy a day of excellent fishing on the River Windrush. It’s the ideal setting for beginners and more experienced anglers, with over a mile of river bank and our own fishing lodge. This is a rewarding beat, with a good head of fish, easy access with mown banks and a variety of slow and fast water to fish.
Guests can use our tackle to fish independently, although we’d advise booking ahead. Or spend a day out on the river with our experienced ghillie to show you the ropes.
