The Annexe at Casterbridge Fisheries in West Stafford Dorchester
The Annexe offers comfortable, relaxed selfcatering accommodation with stunning views over water meadows. A short walk to The Home Beat on this private stretch of the river Frome, this is the ideal place to stay to fully enjoy the quality chalkstream fishing on your doorstep.
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.
A haven of peace and tranquility, unspoilt countryside lies right outside your door. West Stafford village, with its pub serving excellent food and local ales, is only a short walk away.
We offer one or two week holidays, weekend or mid-week breaks or you are welcome for just one night. There is an open fire in the comfortable lounge with endless logs for a winter warm up and all bedding and towels are supplied. Just come along and relax.
We actually have three miles of our own chalkstream fishing on the River Frome. The “Home Beat” is on our doorstep and “Gardner’s Beat” only a mile upstream, add on to this, day tickets on the Dorchester Fishing Club water and we have over ten miles of rather exceptional fly fishing on offer.
