Wild rainbow trout swimming side by side with elusive yellow fish abound in the Bell River, making it a fly-fisherman's paradise. Kinmel has its own stretch of the Bell River, specifically reserved for our guests only. The region also boasts a number of dams and more than 200 km of rivers and crystal clear running water in which to cast your fly.
We also are a fully functional active farm where guests and especially children are invited to acquaint themselves with a variety of farm animals. We fully support the principles of eco-tourism, defined as responsible travel to natural areas, which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of the local inhabitants.
