Manoir de Malvoisine is no longer open for fly fishing or guests.

We are hanging up our boots after a wonderful few years, so to all those who stayed here and fished the Andelle we say thank you for making it so special. We wish you all tight lines and happy days.

We love food and are unashamedly proud of the food we grow, harvest and prepare from our estate. We have a large organic vegetable garden that provides just about all we need for our fishing season. Last year we added a fruit garden which we harvest for mixed fruit crumbles, summer puddings and gooseberry fools.

We have home produced milk fed pork, and lamb from the apple orchards. Naturally we have our own free range eggs which are collected for your breakfast each morning. The choice of where to eat is a daily dilemma. If it's very hot we may serve lunch in the large round tower which is always cool at midday. Earlier in the season lunch can be eaten by the river and dinner in the candle lit dining room. If the late evening rise is conflicting with a formal dinner, you may prefer to eat a barbeque on the island, allowing fishing to continue between courses.

Our aim is not to fuss around you, but to encourage you to feel at home at Malvoisine. Drinks and homemade goodies are on offer throughout the day - just show up and look hopeful! If you have any dietary needs or if there are any foods you would prefer not to encounter, then we can suggest alternatives.

A typical dinner at Malvoisine might be:

Canapés served with chilled white wine

Grilled peaches and spec

Rabbit cooked with saffron and cucumber, served with rice

Green salad

Local cheese

Twice cooked pears with homemade ice cream


We have an extensive cellar including a choice of house wines for you to enjoy with your dinner.
