A major feature of the property is the river frontage with a single bank fishing from the 1st April to the 15th December which is one of the latest to close seasons in England. The river has numerous pools, Kingfisher, Oak Tree, Otter and House with a stone jetty and slate seating for the fishermen. There is also an attractive run called Spiers Run.
