Glamping and Fishing on the River Wye
Welcome to White House on Wye Glamping. Our farm offers over a mile of fishing on the river wye along with glamping onsite for accommodation perfectly situated next to the river.
Our beat of the Wye offers some fantastic private fishing for barbel, chub, roach, dace, pike, grayling, trout and salmon. The mile stretch has a variety of features with deeper slower moving sections and a pebble beach which is perfect for trout, barbel and smaller fish. There is also a croy that puts fishermen in a prime position in the deeper waters where the fast-flowing water moves over bigger fish.
The glamping site has five cosy tipis that are fully kitted out with everything you need. Whether you’re coming in a group, alone or with the family, having the glamping on site is great for the perfect fishing glamping experience.
Our site is a big upgrade from just standard camping. It’s time to leave the tents at home, ditch camping with fishing and come glamping instead!
River Wye Fishing
The river wye offers a unique fishing experience unlike anywhere else in the UK. The Wye Valley is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty making for some fantastic scenery for your holiday. Our site is just outside of Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire.
The mile stretch of private Wye River fishing on offer starts with the upstream being deep and slow before speeding up in the downstream sections.
You can book a River Wye day ticket fishing through the Wye and Usk foundation for your stay.
Course Fishing River Wye
The most common course fish caught here are barbel and chub, the fish caught here are of really good quality and good condition.
The River Wye is very clean meaning the water here is clear so it allows sun rays to beam through which give the barbel and chub a lovely gold colouring to them which in other waters they may be pretty pale.
It’s one of the better barbel swims on the Wye. While it is popular it is not overcrowded as it’s limited to the Wye and Usk. Our location is great for Wye barbel fishing holidays with some superb fighting barbel available.
River Wye Fly Fishing
Although the White House stretch is primarily coarse fishing, under the right conditions fly fishing is good too. There is a nice pebble beach which is good for casting off.
There is salmon in the early season depending on the run and you’ll often see salmon jumping out of the water in the evening in a golden flash. It’s not known as a trout stretch but if you get one it will be a big one.
River Wye Fishing Accommodation
The glamping is based in the cider apple orchard on the farm. The five tipis are spread amongst the trees giving guests a private stay. The tipis come fully equipped with beds, linen, heaters and BBQ/fire pit. That means all you need to do is turn up, ready to enjoy your time on the Wye.
Our glamping accommodation has been featured in The Sunday Times as one of the top glamping locations in the UK. The site comes with all facilities that you’ll need for your night of glamping such as a kitchen, toilets and hot showers.
