Fishery Information

Hastingford Fishery is a family-run fishing and glamping site in the beautiful Sussex countryside. Offering luxury fisherman’s huts that sleep two, it provides an idyllic setting for those seeking a quiet, relaxing break away from city life. The site is disabled-friendly, boasting facilities for wheelchair users and those with mobility issues. The glamping site comes with Wi-Fi, but please note it may not support heavy streaming or video conferencing activities. Phone signal strength can vary depending on your network and location within the site.

What size do the fish go to?

The fishery is stocked with several species across four spring-fed lakes, including common and mirror carp up to 25lb+, perch, grass carp, golden and blue orfe, green and golden tench, chub, roach, rudd, and gudgeon.

What tactics work well?

No specific tactics have been outlined by the fishery, but with the variety of species available, both coarse and specimen fishing techniques will likely be successful. As with any fishery, observing the local conditions and fish behavior on the day will be key.

What facilities are on site?

Four luxury fisherman’s huts overlooking the lakes are available for booking, with a minimum stay of two nights (three nights during June, July, and August). Some of these huts come with ensuite facilities and full kitchens. For day ticket anglers, a unit with a toilet, shower, and kitchen facilities is available. There’s also a natural ‘wild swimming’ pool for the adventurous.

Is parking available?

The listing doesn’t specify parking facilities, but pick-up and drop-off services from local stations can be arranged for a small fee.


Fishing is available by the day from 8am – 8pm/dusk and by night (for hut residents only) from 8pm/dusk to 8am. The fishery has not provided specific price details, so visitors are encouraged to check the fees list or inquire directly.

Additional Information
