I first went to the trout farm over 30 years ago when it was just an interesting place where you could catch your own fish to buy. Now it's a tourist trap modified to extract as much as possible from the visiting Japanese coach tours....More

This is a nice little stop in Bibury. There is a little shop which sells local goods and also a great ice cream place, which is worth visiting.

Feeding the fish is much more enjoyable than you would imagine - no internet or batteries required! Can keep children (and adults) amused for a surprising amount of time. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Feeding is not obligatory but does enhance the visit.

Found the trout farm website very misleading, no lakes to fish from, just breed fish, a very small water loop provided to fish from. Ideal to introduce under 6’s to fishing but any children over this age it does not enable them to understand how...More

The website does refer to the fishing as 'beginners' but I shall certainly make description clearer. During the fishing season we do use the river which is much more challenging but the season finished on 30th September. We have only kept the facility open on...More
