Port Howard is the largest privately owned settlement on West Falkland with a permanent population of twenty. Most of the people are employed by Port Howard Farm which runs 45,000 sheep.
There are two excellent rivers for sea-trout within a short drive from Port Howard Lodge: The Warrah and The Chartres.
Some of the best sea-trout fishing in the world can be accessed from here.
You can play golf at Clippy Hill or one of several other challenging courses nearby with low green fees and definitely no queues.
Day excursions are available to see the local wildlife and individual itineraries can be arranged.
The Warrah rises in the foothills of Muffler Jack Mountain (named after a shepherd in the early 1900’s who always wore a scarf) and runs for twenty miles to the sea. The Warrah has a reputation for the quality of its fish rather than the quantity – in the 2000/2001 season, 13 sea-trout over eight pounds were logged.
The Chartres has fewer large fish but bags of ten or more 3 to 6 pounders are regularly caught.
Port Howard Lodge
The Lodge was built in 1952 as the farm manager’s house and it retains the comfortable charm of that era. All bedrooms are en-suite.
