Or why not travel slightly further afield and try your hand at fly fishing...

Chewton Glen is situated in fly fishing 'Mecca' - Nestled in its enviable New Forest location between the world's three most famous English chalk streams; the river Test, the river Avon and the river Itchen.

This is the birth place of this noble sport and fly fishers the world over dream of casting a line on these hallowed waters, located in some of England's most beautiful countryside. Filtered by the unique chalk bed rock, the gin clear water is home to large native brown trout, grayling, Atlantic salmon and sea trout. All within a short drive of the hotel.
