Fishing At The Coniston Country Estate
On the Coniston Hall Lake
We have our own beautiful 24-acre lake which is well stocked with fighting fit Rainbow Trout and also holds a good head of wild Brown Trout.
Fishing on the River Aire
Our one mile length of the River Aire provides the river fly fisher with the opportunity for some challenging fly fishing for its wild Brown Trout, some of which are in excess of 2lbs.
The River Aire has excellent hatches of fly and offers good sport to dry fly and nymph tactics.
The River Aire is open for fly fishing from April to September inclusive.
Boats are available for the lake and tuition is available for those wishing to improve their fishing.
Land Rover Experience
You won’t believe what a thrill off-roading can be until you have tried the Land Rover Experience at Skipton. From steep slopes to sheer drops, through deep gulleys and rutted tracks, our enthusiastic instructors will stretch your driving skills over challenging terrain and leave you grinning from ear to ear!
The best way to see the Dales in any weather and reaching places you could perhaps only find after hiking many hours on foot. Ideal for those who enjoy comfort and warmth with a little adventure thrown in!
