    The cottage is excellent and well equipped and the staff are very friendly and helpful.. When we stayed in July the fishing was excellent but this time it was very very disappointing. An over zealous water bailiff has obviously had some bad experience with some fisherman and therefore deemed everyone else to be incompetent. He has roped off over one third of the lakes perimeter denying access to all the best swims leaving only one peg where you have any reasonable expectation of catching carp. This is because he does not want anyone to fish between the lily pads . In total a rough measure of 85 yards of 250 yards perimeter are unavailabe. It must also be said that although the bailiff correctly has a sign telling you to dip your nets before fishing there is no facility on site to sanitise your net. If you are looking to enjoy some fishing then this is not the location for you.

About the location

NEWTON ABBOT

Teignmouth 5 miles; Shaldon 5 miles; Torquay 10 miles; Exeter 18 miles; Plymouth 31 miles

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops, both local and well-known high street chains and six leading brand supermarkets. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during the winter. Newton Abbot has a unique pub, the tap house and bottle shop, located in the building of what was a traditional working malthouse offering arguably the finest bottled beers in Devon. The seaside towns of Teignmouth, Shaldon and Dawlish are nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle and many others are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and further afield the pretty Ness Cove. And of course, the South West Coast Path provides stunning seascapes across the bay, with a popular stretch from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain, passing through Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl. Newton Abbot provides a fabulous base for an English seaside holiday all year round.
