Having travelled all over England, Scotland, and Australia I can honestly say this is the best. Diane & Barry are the perfect hosts and the accommodation and surrounds are just great. Breakfast is almost too much, though we didn't complain. Barry's knowledge of the rivers made our trip most memorable, while Diane was always ready to book restaurants for us. My wife is fairly new to dry fly fishing but Barry made sure she hooked into some great brown trout. We stayed for two weeks in December 2012 and have already re-booked for two weeks in March 2014 for my 70th birthday. Barry also ties the most beautiful size 16s & 18s flies which my failing eyesight can no longer do. Can't wait to get back. Stuart & Vicki Mckinnon, Khancoban,NSW.
