This provides exciting and notable sport with trout of up to 1.5lbs regularly being caught, and with fish weighing up to 7lbs not being uncommon. Whilst there are no formal fishing records, the vendor estimates that annual catches exceed 20 fish (salmon). The inclusion of the trout fishing is a great asset to the property and should not be underestimated. The property also benefits from 280m of single bank fishing extending from the Fasnakle Bridge to the green marker post opposite the power station. The owners have taken fishing rights by the week on the River Glass over successive years and have re-let these with their accommodation.GroundsThe grounds at Kerrow extend to approximately 12 acres (4.9 ha).

The formal gardens lie immediately to the rear and side of the house and are laid mainly to lawn interspersed with trees and shrubs. There are gravelled sitting areas adjacent to the house, one with an outdoor barbeque, and a clematis and rose arched walkway leading through the lawns.Pony paddocks, stabling including 3 loose boxes with adjoining feed store and various other outbuildings.House SiteInformal discussions with the local planning authority indicate there is potential scope for the creation of a further dwelling upon the site of the Pole Barn, subject to the statutory consents.
