WE OFFER CATCH/RELEASE & CATCH/KEEP PERMITS. THE AFTERNOON PERMITS WILL START AT 1PM TO ALLOW FOR A LONGER FISHING SESSION NOW THE NIGHTS ARE DRAWING IN FOR FISHING ON THE EVENING RISE. IT'S TIME TO GET THOSE RODS IN THE CAR FOR SOME FISHING DOWNTIME IN THE FESTIVE MONTH WHEN HOLS CAN BE TAKEN - WINTER FISHING AT TENTERDEN IS GOOD.
IF THE LAKES FREEZE - I WILL POST THIS ON THIS NEWS FEED AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE BY 8AM SO CHECK BEFORE YOU LEAVE TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.
OUR ANGLERS HAVE BEEN ENJOYING THEIR SPORT AND RELAXING DOWNTIME WHEN FISHING WITH US AND OUR SHEPHERDS HUT HAS BEEN BUSY WITH STAYCATIONS THIS YEAR AND WE ARE NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR WINTER AND THE CHANGING COLOURS LOOK BEAUTIFUL AT THE FISHERY WHICH YOU CAN SEE ON THE HOME PAGE.

All 3 Lakes are stocked with hard fighting Trout and we introduced some beautiful Brownies in May which you can see in the Instagram gallery below - click on the link. We request that they are returned to Lake 3 - thank you.
We installed a new solar aerator in Lake 3 to help the Fishery on the back of climate change this Summer which is working well.
Check out our Gallery to see just what our Anglers have been getting up to at the Fishery this year, you will see we have stocked some fabulous Blues too.
Stay & Fish - Our Shepherds Hut has been popular with some very positive reviews on our Airbnb platform. If you are interested to stay and fish with 20% off our fishing permits then this fishing staycation could work for you, alternatively you may not wish to fish and just have some downtime here. Our Hut is very warm and cosy with electric heating and a woodburner in the Winter. Discover more under our Shepherds Hut heading and book it through Airbnb. You can always book direct with Gaynor if you prefer not to use this platform. Our Hut is 15 mins walk through an area of outstanding natural beauty to Tenterden so you can leave your car in the car park and enjoy some peaceful downtime. You will have full use of the Fishery Lodge with all the amenities you will need, its very warm and cosy in the colder months with electric heating.

Fishing Tuition is available with Richard Stokes, our Instructor - please see our Tuition page for further details. Please click on Richard's email address on the Tuition Page, which puts you in direct contact if this is of interest, to arrange a lesson or purchase a voucher for a fishing lesson.
We shall limit numbers to 12 at any one time so that our Anglers have plenty of space in which to fish. This works works well for all.

Tackle up in the car park and then visit our Fishery Lodge on the right as you walk down the driveway, it's our Social Hub for Anglers and our Shepherds Hut guests with all the amenities you will require whilst visiting us. There is a sign at the bottom of the driveway which informs you of where to find and purchase your permit.
We shall post your permits at the farmhouse front door (house directly at the bottom of our driveway), on the permit board, in a white envelope with your name on, please put the exact cash inside this envelope and post it through the letterbox.
