Fishing and Friends in the South West

It was a gathering of old mates at Clover Cottage for a boys weekend of good wine, good food, good laughs and, of course, some serious fishing!  Well known local musician Rod Vervest with his very good friends Geoff and Frances  were tutored by Francis on the fine points of fly fishing. The fly fishing tuition was very impressive!  Geoff landed  rainbow, kissed it and let it travel on it’s way!

Hear from our guests

For our honeymoon we had a truly relaxing week here at Clover Cottage.  We enjoyed the tranquil setting, happy donkeys and goats, cute little blue wrens, sheep etc.  Eggs from the chickens were tasty on the bread baked fresh in our cottage.  We loved the smell of the bread baking on our arrival.  Myself being a keen angler, I flicked all manner of lures in search of trout and refin.  Red or black spinners worked the best on the redfin and blades and lipless crankbaits also got me a few ferals.  After a week of casting in the mid 30s weather I finally got a couple of trout DEEP in the bottom lake.

We had a lovely time
