About The Shooting lodge, Wrackleford Estate
5 bedroom rural holiday lodge in the Dorset Downs with dry fly fishing on the River Frome
Our private rural lodge is a unique holiday home in Stratton which offers wonderful, relaxed accommodation with a fantastic setting in a small coppice high on the Dorset Downs. Add to this spectacular views south towards the Jurrasic coast along with dry fly fishing on the River Frome and it’s easy to see that this is a very special holiday lodge.
The location of this Dorset cottage is ideal with the property being just one mile from the nearest main road making it wonderfully remote and rural yet it is only around two hours drive from London.
Dorset is blessed with a fantastic coastline, with a mixture of traditional bucket and spade beaches, and awe inspiring coastal paths with plunging cliff lines. Our private rural lodge is only a 25 minute drive away from some lovely beaches.Dry Fly Fishing
The Wrackleford Estate has some 4 miles of Chalkstream Fly fishing on the River Frome, and along Sydling Brook. This is divided into 8 separate fishing beats, each of which can be bought on a Day Ticket Basis. Included in the price of your stay is 1 days fishing for every 3 days you stay - this must be booked in advance with the office.
Shooting Clays and Game
The Estate offers Pheasant and Partridge shooting from September through to the end of January, and simulated game shooting all the year round for groups of 8 or more shooting clay pigeons in drives like a real game day. Simulated shooting is suitable for beginners and experts alike. For smaller groups Southern Counties Clay ground offers close by
The Private rural lodge is the perfect party place not only for its setting but the main room can seat up to 30 people around a circular table carved out of elm trees from the Estate with a 42 candle chandelier above. To make a fantastic evening why not allow us to prepare a full dinner including roasting a fillet of beef on the open fire.
