Things to Do Fishing

About Fontburn

Within easy reach of Tyneside and Northumberland, Fontburn is the perfect destination for a family outing.

The kids will enjoy our stimulating play zone complete with swings, slides, climbing frames and zip wire. You can relax in our spacious picnic areas as the children explore; and when they eventually tire themselves out, extend your outdoor adventure with a mini garden party picnic in a picturesque setting.

Burn calories while taking in the beautiful scenery on the circular walk around the reservoir and reward yourself with a hot drink or maybe an ice cream from our shop.

With its on-site fish farm, Fontburn is well known for its top class fishing experience for fly and any method anglers. With plenty of pristine roach and trout replenished each season, you can be sure of a great day on the bank side.

**Please note restrictions apply to the circular walk from 10th April to 10th May each year. Please speak to our rangers on site for more details**


Please can we remind all visitors that entering the water for unauthorised swimming, water sports / inflatables fun or just for a quick cool down is not allowed. We like to keep all our visitors safe and to do this we must request that you stay out of the water and its hidden dangers at all times.
