“At Graiglwyd the fish were in mint condition … Caught my biggest ever trout there!! We stayed in one of 5 cottages on site. Superb throughout and everything was 5* with tonnes of space."

We’re pleased to be opening, offering fishing to local anglers and in line with Welsh Government guidelines on angling in Wales.

They say:

Angling should be done “locally”, and “alone or with a member of your household”
‘Local’ is not defined, but “people are asked to exercise good judgment”

Booking sessions online in advance is essential, so that we can monitor the Covid-19 safety precautions we have put into place. Sessions can be booked on our website.

If any anglers do not have web access, please call us between 9am and 5pm, on 01492 622338.
