Pen-y-Dyffryn has access to a private fly-fishing pool. The pool is a two minute walk from the hotel, and is approximately a quarter of an acre in size. It is well stocked with trout – Brown, Rainbow and Blue Trout. Fishing is free of charge to residents at the hotel, and you are permitted to remove one trout for the pot – others must be replaced please. We have one rod for free hire, but we generally prefer you to bring your own tackle. The pool is in the owners’ private gardens, so maximum two hour sessions please. No dogs permitted as there are ducks living in the undergrowth/nesting. As it is closed pool there is no close season.
*Please not if you would like to use the pool we need at least 24 hours notice.
