I first went to the trout farm over 30 years ago when it was just an interesting place where you could catch your own fish to buy. Now it's a tourist trap modified to extract as much as possible from the visiting Japanese coach tours....More

Feeding the fish is much more enjoyable than you would imagine - no internet or batteries required! Can keep children (and adults) amused for a surprising amount of time. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Feeding is not obligatory but does enhance the visit.

Found the trout farm website very misleading, no lakes to fish from, just breed fish, a very small water loop provided to fish from. Ideal to introduce under 6’s to fishing but any children over this age it does not enable them to understand how...More
