Stunning Chalkstream Fishing

Accommodation & Fly Fishing on the River Frome in Dorset

If you are looking for an excuse to get away for a few days, in a rather special, unspoilt part of English countryside, West Stafford is a quintessentially English Village located just down stream of Dorchester in the heart of Thomas Hardy country. Criss-crossed with old water meadow systems and of course the famous River Frome, this is without doubt one of southern England’s finest chalkstream fisheries.

Memories from time spent on the banks on this glorious stretch of the River Frome, secluded and idyllic bliss will stay with you forever. Your fishing day from 9am until the evening rise and dusk will undoubtedly leave you wanting more. So why not stay over? The Annexe provides a perfect base to discover the delights of the surrounding area and only a stones throw from 10 miles of idyllic chalkstream fly fishing in the heart of Hardy country. So perfect you’ll want to keep it to yourself...

All beats are on the River Frome, Dorset; without doubt one of southern England’s finest chalkstreams.
