Fly Fishing on the English chalkstreams is within easy reach of so much of England making it perfect for day trips. That said, some anglers are travelling from further afield or simply looking to stay in the area a little longer. There are numerous fantastic hotels and country inns to stay as well as some really interesting self-catering options. Below we have included details on a few wonderful self-catering options in the area.
Wild Escapes – Fullerton
Wild Escapes offer something a little different to those looking for chalkstream fishing and accommodation in the River Test area. Wild Escapes is a set of luxury tree houses a stone’s throw away from the River Test and its wonderful tributary the River Anton. After a day of sight fishing to heathy trout and grayling, you can sit back and relax with a glass wine from Black Chalk Vineyard that the treehouses overlook.
Nature is woven into each of these beautiful treehouses, from the perfectly positioned sycamore branch to rest your glass on, to the build’s use of local materials, and the artisan produce in the welcome hamper that welcomes you on your arrival. It is truly a unique place to stay.
The Silk Mill Cottage – Whitchurch
Silk Mill Cottage is a traditional Victorian property nestled alongside the Test River. Set in the idyllic grounds of the historic Whitchurch Silk Mill, this former weaver’s cottage is the perfect base from which you can visit family and friends or explore all that this lovely little spot in Hampshire has to offer.
