*Additional information:

Nestled in the heart of the Wye Valley on a private estate, this fishery is over a mile of right bank fishing down to the small confluence of the Bishopswood Brook. The fishery can be accessed with your vehicle, and you can drop your gear right to your swim.

The fishery features three styles of fishing landscape: meadow fishing, woodland fishing and wild fishing in this beautiful valley. This stretch of the River Wye is well known for its amazing barbel fishing. It is also home to some very large chub, trout and grayling and is world renowned for its magnificent salmon.

The location itself can only be described as stunning, with breathtaking views of the Wye Valley nestled in the Courtfield Estate, home to wild herds of fallow deer and circling buzzards. The sheer variety of landscape & fishing styles encompassed in this beat provides for every type of angler.
