Located in the Tyne Valley close to the village of Corbridge, and with excellent rail and airport connections within a 30 minute drive, the Styford estate is a tranquil place to live, work and enjoy some of the best salmon fishing to be found in England.
Fishing at Styford is available from 1 February to 31 October for up to three rods per day. In 1922 a 42 1/2lb salmon was caught on a Silver Wilkinson fly after an four hour battle. It remains the record fish for the beat and one of the largest ever caught on the river. 2011 and 2012 saw successive record years.
Fishing can be good all year round and be enjoyed by all ages and all abilities. For further details and bookings please visit the FishTyne website
The estate manages 10 properties. Most of the properties were originally built to house agricultural workers and staff.
Our policy is to let houses to people who live and work locally. Most of the current tenants have lived in our houses for many years but vacancies occasionally arise and are advertised in the regional press and online.
Farming at Styford is carried out on approximately 300 acres of arable land, 190 acres of pasture and 250 acres of woodland.
This is carefully managed to maintain a diverse habitat to provide food, shelter and insects for birds and wildlife.
Our broadleaved and coniferous woodland has been established and managed over many decades with timber harvested for use around the estate, for fuel and for sale to third parties seeking a quality product.
