The Izaak Walton Hotel - Ashbourne
The Izaak Walton Hotel...
charming country house hotel dates back to the 17th century, and is
idyllically situated with glorious views over the valley of Dovedale to
Thorpe Cloud. The River Dove meanders in the valley below and the
atmosphere is one of peace and tranquility. The hotel takes its name
from the author of "The Compleat Angler," and great care has been taken
to retain the building's character.
The Izaak Walton Hotel is able to offer fishing on one of the finest Derbyshire Trout Streams, made famous in the “Complete Angler” by Izaak Walton & Charles Cotton, 1676.
The hotel owns the fishing rights on the Staffordshire bank of the river Dove. The fishery is 3 miles from Ilam rock downstream, to the junction with the river Manifold on the right bank.The more wooded Staffordshire bank provides perfect solitude away from the many visitors and tourists who enjoy walking the Derbyshire bank. The well oxygenated Staffordshire bank ensures there is a good healthy population of fish, including the wild brown trout, that are not easily deceived. The fishing is both challenging and rewarding to both wet and dry fly.
