MARCH 2020 - OUR FISHERY IS CLOSED

  

PLEASE USE THE CRANBROOK ROAD ENTRANCE TO THE FISHERY (IGNORE THE ROAD SIGNS YOU CAN GET THROUGH!). SHOREHAM ROAD/GRANGE ROAD ENTRANCE IS CLOSED FOR 12 WEEKS FROM 20/1/20 DUE TO SOUTH EAST WATER MAJOR REPAIRS.  WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Following the Prime Minister's broadcast on the 23/3/20 we have decided to close our fishery to keep our Anglers safe. Our Trout Masters Fish Off on the 17 May 2020 has been postponed until further notice we would hope to reinstate it later in the year. These are very difficult times and we all need to be vigilant. Please look after yourselves and your families and we will keep in touch.


With best wishes, Gaynor, Richard & Audrey.

This is a fund raising event for Fishing for Schools which was started by Charles some 12 years ago to help young people from challenging backgrounds get into Angling and back into education. It is a national operation under the Countryside Alliance Foundation and enjoys charitable status. On the back of this event we shall also be hosting a Fishing For Schools Day on the 15 July 2020 which Charles will also be hosting at our Fishery.

Boris (9.5lbs) our trophy Brownie remains the challenge for 2020. Several Anglers have had the excitement of having him on the end of their line but everyone of them has been broken by him. Boris is a catch & release trophy fish and anyone who does land him will need to validate the catch with a photo and will be rewarded with a bottle of your choice.


We have a super new Fishing Lodge and we hope you will enjoy this relaxing social hub with kitchen and toilet facilities situated in an elevated position on the side of Lake 1. It has its own verandah for sitting out and enjoying the weather overlooking the Lake for some relaxing downtime. The Lodge provides a great space for our Anglers to have lunch/tea over a cup of tea/coffee with our compliments.  It will add a positive experience to your fishing here at Tenterden and encourage family and friends to come along too. There are some recent photos in the Gallery. If you would like to hire out our Lodge between 7pm & 10.30pm please contact Gaynor.


PARKING & FISHING PERMITS AT THE FISHERY – You will find the Fishery Car Park on the left hand side of the drive - it is clearly sign posted. There is a sign at the bottom of the driveway as you walk down, which informs you of where to purchase your fishing permit.


We are delighted to have been voted into the Top 50 of the Top 100 Stillwater Trout Fisheries 2019 in the British Isles by the independent panel of judges at Trout Fisherman Magazine which has now amalgamated into one magazine, Trout & Salmon. We have moved upwards in our ranking this year and we remain a Trout Master Fishery. Our Trout Masters Fish Off will be on the 17 May 2020 and we look forward to hosting our Anglers at this event.

This also makes for a great gift and can be purchased as a Gift Voucher.


We are very pleased to announce that the Fishery/Farm has become a Wedding Venue, for exclusive use, when the Fishery is closed in July and August and we are currently taking bookings for 2020/21/22 – please see our Wedding Venue Heading on this website for further information. We also work with Farm Locations as a film shoot. 


Exciting News: We will be setting up some accommodation at the Fishery this year in the form of a Shepherds Hut.
