River Itchen, Alre and Candover – Fishing beats with super holiday accommodation


This is some of the most beautiful wild trout fishing in Hampshire.  These seven beats are available in conjunction with the beautiful holiday accommodation (not separately).  The Clock Tower.  A two bedroom apartment in the clock tower of a stable courtyard, set in spectacular parkland scenery.  Garden Cottage.  An attractive garden cottage with one double bed plus further sofa bed.

Upper river Itchen.  (The Shallows and Main River beats)  Superb wild trout fishing on the upper river Itchen.  Most of the beats require wading as it is very traditionally managed.  We have two generous beats on the main river Itchen that offer anglers that ‘lost in time’ private estate, wild trout fishing that is so rare these days.  These beats will accommodate one or two rods comfortably.

River Alre (Itchen tributary, Drove Lane beat).  This beat is the most downstream stretch of the Alre at the confluence of the rivers Alre and Cheriton Brook forming the main river Itchen.  Superb wild trout fishing on private estate water. Only 2 days each week are fished.  Well rested and traditionally managed wild trout water.

Candover Brook (Itchen tributary, upper and lower Candover beats).  The Candover is a main tributary of the upper Itchen.  A small wild trout stream that offers tricky but very rewarding wild trout fishing in pristine water.  A single rod beat with mown riverbanks.

Elm Stream (Itchen carrier).  The Elm stream is a beautiful river Itchen carrier stream running parallel with the main river at a braided section.  All wild trout, wading required.  Traditionally managed and well rested wild trout water.  A single rod beat that requires wading.

Two night minimum stay.  From £280 for a single rod and one night accommodation.  For details and available dates of accommodation and fishing beats please ask Howard or Anna.
