Our members enjoy fishing on one of the finest wild chalk streams in the world.
Avington provides the perfect venue to provide corporate hosting days on the beautiful River Kennet. Situated only 10 minutes from Junctions 13 and 14 of the M4 and 5 minutes from the A34 and Hungerford or Newbury Stations, Avington provides some of the most accessible chalkstream fishing within an hour of London.
The River Kennet is a beautiful, clean and clear wild chalk stream, widely claimed to be one of the finest chalk streams in the country. It is largely unspoilt and not manicured making it a haven for wildlife both instream and on the surrounding meadows and chalk downs.
There is a great variety of fishing to suit all levels of experience throughout the season including what is most often a spectacular mayfly hatch.
Your Day at Avington
Corporate days offer hosting up to a maximum of six people, with exclusive use of the Denford Fishery and lunches available in the fish hut at Avington or by arrangement with some our superb local pubs.
Your day at Avington can be guided for less experienced fishermen or you can be free to roam the four miles of fishing at your leisure, leaving you free to entertain clients or reward team members without interruption.
