Fishing on the Tiptoe Beat of the River Till

Completely natural surroundings

Exciting varied fishing

Instruction & introduction available

Day permits available
(check dates and prices)

The Orchard Cottage is uniquely situated only 200 yards walk from the River Till, down a fairly steep track. The river flows through the beautiful wooded valley before joining The River Tweed junction 2 miles downstream.

The Tiptoe beat is approximately 1 miles on the right bank and 2 3 rods can be booked exclusively

The whole beat is fished upto 6pm, then to ensure undisturbed Sea trout fishing the beat is split into two and fished on an alternate upper and lower basis.

Known primarily as a sea trout and salmon river, there is also a healthy natural stock of brown trout and grayling. - see The River

The fishing can be descibed as "wild" because the surroundings are unspoilt, it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for plants and wildlife, and is managed accordingly. It is best suited to the able bodied and the experienced fisherman. Tiptoe has been awarded "Britain's Most Beautiful  Farm 2006" This award recognises all the environmental work that is carried out on the farm .

The Till, although in England, is a tributary of the Tweed and is governed by The Tweed Commissioners and the Tweed Angling Code (copy available). An Environment Agency rod licence is therefore not required.

Instruction & Guiding Available

Fishing Instruction and/or a Tiptoe Beat First Day Introduction can be arranged with prior notice .


At the Farm there is a lockable Tackle Room with a catch record book, rod racks , hooks and hangers and plenty of room for bags , tackle and waders etc.

Freezer facilities are available in a separate room with a sink and preparation area.

There is a hut in the middle of the beat and benches at either end - places to meet and rest!
