Fly Fishing School
We are one of the very few hotels with their own fly fishing school on site, with experienced full time AAPGAI instructors able to offer the highest quality in fly fishing instruction, plus guiding on an hourly or daily basis (pre-booking advisable). Click here for more details on the Devon School of Fly Fishing.
If you are new to fly fishing we offer half or full day courses on the trout lake in the hotel's grounds. For the more experienced angler the lake is the perfect venue to have a tune up or to learn a few new casts, such as spey casting or double hauling. Complete beginners can learn to fly fish on our 2 casting lakes, with fishing breaks available that include a half or whole day lesson and overnight accommodation - an ideal gift.

- Full day guiding or tuition - £175 for 1 person or £275 for 2
Prices for 3 or more people are available on request.
