Fishing in Devon


Recently voted Best Fishing School in the UK by The Field Magazine, The Arundell Arms Hotel has been one of England’s premier fishing hotels for more than half a century.

The charm of our rivers is that they are wild. We control the fishing rights on seven different rivers, the Tamar and six tributaries, all natural spate rivers draining the moors and high ground of the westcountry. With private fishing on a total of 20 miles of river bank, anglers can have up to a mile of water to themselves for the day.

Our full-time instructor is David Pilkington. You will find him in the Cockpit, the ancient former cock-fighting pit, in the hotel garden­ every morning at 9am and he is also available every evening at 6.30pm. David issues rod licences, directions and maps of the beats, and give advice freely. If you do not have your own tackle you can hire everything you need from us, including waders. We also have a well-stocked tackle shop with the latest fishing equipment and a comprehensive selection of local flies. If you get drenched we also have a very efficient drying room.

We teach fishing. We run courses for beginners. We sell tackle, give advice and provide maps of our fishing. It is all this and more which makes The Arundell Arms a real fisherman’s hotel.

Day tickets are available for non-residents of the hotel.

“From the very beginning of the fishing season I’ve always felt that I’ve been talking to knowledgeable friends rather than instructors”. Michael Haines
