It’s a case of ‘gone fishing’ for one Peak District hotel as Rowsley’s multi-award winning East Lodge announces it has netted new fly fishing rights on the river Derwent, exclusively for its guests in association with the world-famous Chatsworth House.
Fishing remains a popular reason for many budding anglers to visit the Peak District, with nearby Ladybower and the river Derwent providing superb sporting opportunities for fly fishers. East Lodge is one of the nearest hotels to Chatsworth and is internationally renowned – like Chatsworth - so it made perfect sense for Chatsworth and East Lodge to join forces in offering fresh fishing opportunities. The passes offered by East Lodge are ideal for those looking for a luxury fishing break in the Peak District.
“Our fishing offers have always proved popular and we are confident our exclusive Chatsworth deal will catch the imagination of anglers everywhere and as always with East Lodge, there is a lot more to these breaks than just fishing,” said East Lodge Deputy Managing Director, Iain Hardman. “They are a perfect opportunity (particularly for couples or groups) to sample our Indigo sponsored Chef’s Table and our kitchen brigade will be delighted to transform your day’s catch into the dish of the day!”
Day passes are available for part, or all of your East Lodge luxury break, affording up to four miles of unrivalled double bank fly fishing through some of the most picturesque scenery to be found anywhere in the world. The Derwent has a good head of both Brown and Rainbow Trout, which provide good sport between the months of April and October.
Having just secured the prestigious three AA Rosettes status, the East Lodge restaurant is the perfect place to unwind after a day’s fishing, while the exclusive Indigo Chef’s Table is ideal for private parties of up to eight to dine in luxury, sampling the unique tasting menu and with the fresh fish contributed by you, it’s the perfect end to a perfect day messing about on the river.
“Chatsworth has a full time river keeper, who is on hand to offer advice to anglers; and with option of a luxury picnic supplied by us, even for those not into fishing, river life has never been so much fun,” added Iain. “For ‘other halfs’ casting around for alternative entertainment, we also have deals available to visit the famous house and gardens of Chatsworth, while there is plenty of nearby shopping, walks and wildlife to keep everyone happy.”
Prices start from just £180 per person and include an award winning Derbyshire breakfast and fishing day ticket.
Three AA Rosettes allows East Lodge to describe itself as one of the top UK venues for food as well as accommodation, as the renewal of the hotels’ red star status also demonstrates. Other awards include ‘Small Hotel of the Year’ from East Midlands Tourism and a silver winner in ‘Hotel of the Year’ 2009/10 from the ‘Tourism Oscars’. East Lodge is owned by the Hardman family and the AA’s red stars place the hotel in a select bracket of the top 150 hotels in the whole of the UK and this exclusive venue remains one of just 48 hotels in the country presented with 4 Stars and a Visit England Gold Award.
