Please ring to book or email 01580 763201 or We shall limit numbers to 12 at any one time when we re-open so that our Anglers have plenty of space in which to fish . We shall continue to adopt this booking process moving forward, it works well for all.

We shall post your permits at the farmhouse front door in a white envelope with your name on, please put the exact cash inside this envelope and post it through the letterbox. This has worked well in the past and we thank you for your support. We don't take card payments because the signal is terrible here fyi.

We will be taking telephone bookings preferably 01580 763201 or email. If we don't answer please leave a message and we will get back to you if you leave your name and number. This will help us monitor how many Anglers can fish safely. If you have booked and need to cancel please can you let us know so that someone else can take up your place. Thank you.

We will hire out rods/nets/tackle when we re-open.

Our reception times are 8.20am, 2pm and 5pm.

Polite Notice: Please would all Anglers refrain from using their mobile phones when they are fishing. Many of our Anglers are seeking peace and quiet and don't want this distraction. Thank you.

Stay & Fish: We opened our Shepherds Hut (The Ghillies Hut) last Summer for accommodation at our Fishery so you can come and stay and fish and I am delighted to say that it has been very well received reading the reviews. We are now legally open for reservations being a self-contained property. Our Hut can accommodate 1-2 people and is set in our fields, where our Romney Sheep graze, with spectacular views, through the valley, over our Lakes up to St. Mildred's Church in Tenterden. A truly beautiful setting. The Ghillies Hut is off grid, with no TV/Broadband, we want you to enjoy the nature that will surround you. For more information/bookings - please visit the Shepherds Hut heading on our website which provides a direct link to Airbnb. We are offering 20% off all fishing permits if you are staying in the Hut. A full refund will be given if a cancellation has to be made due to Covid 19 with the Government enforcing changes to holiday plans ie lockdown. It's a minimum 2 night stay but if you only wanted to stay one night then please contact Gaynor - call or email.

Are you looking for a fly fishing permit gift or fly fishing tuition experience for someone special? We offer gift vouchers which can be purchased by bank transfer, cash or cheque and sent by email or post. Call or email to make your purchase.

We thank all our Anglers for their continued support throughout this year and wish you all a Happy Summer with restrictions lifted.

Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back to our friendly fishery at the end of August, where you can relax and enjoy yourself in safe and picturesque surroundings.

With best wishes, Gaynor, Richard, Ali, Emma, & Audrey.

Boris our 9.5lbs trophy Brownie remains the challenge for 2021. Several Anglers have had the excitement of having him on the end of their line but he has broken them every time. When someone does land him they will need to validate the catch with a photo and be rewarded with a bottle of your choice.

We have a super 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 in the British Isles by the judges at Trout & Salmon. We have moved upwards in our ranking and we remain a Trout Master Fishery.
