Spring Hill Trout Waters are scenically located in a valley in Brenchley Wood near Matfield in Kent. The fishery consists of three clear spring fed waters which are stocked with top quality rainbow and brown trout.

The abundance of insects provide for superb fishing, especially in the evenings when hatches are frequent and dry fly fishing will often produce great results. Hatches include: Midge, Caddis, Sedge, Mayfly, Damsels and most other insects found in Southern England.

The main lake is stocked with both rainbow and brown trout. The Spring and Brown Ponds are exclusively brown trout.

Facilities include a lodge, toilet, sale of terminal tackle and rod hire. Tea and coffee is available as well as other refreshments to purchase.


Tenderden Trout Waters 

Coombe Farm
Chennell Park Road
TN30 6XA

Tel:  01580 763201


Established in 1975, Tenterden Trout Waters was one of the first Still Water Fisheries in South East England. The Fishery is still family owned and run by Barry & Audrey’s (Founders) Daughter, Gaynor, and her Husband, Richard, they continue to run it in the same relaxed and friendly manner which Barry had projected over 41 years of running his successful business which has made it a popular venue.

Situated in a picturesque and peaceful location in the Weald of Kent, just a few minutes from the thriving town of Tenterden.  There are 3 lakes totalling 5.5 acres of water.  All the lakes have large retainer baskets placed around the banks in which anglers can put their fish. They then select their limit at the end of the fishing session therefore giving the Angler the opportunity to take home a best bag of fish.  All other fish are then carefully returned to the lake using a net. There is a maximum of 10 fish that can be caught per permit.  Alternatively, anglers can return fish directly to the water. In this way a successful  ‘catch and release’ system has been developed.

All 3 lakes are stocked regularly with Rainbow, Blues & Brown Trout, ranging in size from 3lbs to 12lbs.

Floating and intermediate lines are most successful though sinking lines are useful for exploring the deeper areas. Popular flies at the Fishery include Gold Head Patterns, such as Montanas, Damsels, Buzzers, Diawl Bach and Coopers Yellow.
