The Wilsford Manor Estate in Wiltshire is a quintessentially English sporting estate, nestling in the famous Woodford Valley on the River Avon. It is a setting of untouched rural charm which is nevertheless easily accessible from London.
With a combination of exceptional water and unique management policies, the estate has one of the best chalk stream fisheries in the UK. Fishing days can be let during the season, which runs from Mid-April to the end of September (see Fishing).
As well as fishing the estate offers driven game bird shooting, providing some 800 acres of well-profiled land with good Wiltshire downs. It has been planted with woodland for shooting on both sides of the principal valley (see Shooting).
Both fishing and shooting clients can book accommodation within the estate, a short walk from the river and a drive of 5 minutes to the shoot. Four separate properties, all within a radius of 75 yards, and capable of hosting a total of 17 people (2 + 3 + 4 + 8), make Wilsford an ideal setting for extended stays to fish or shoot (see Accommodation).
