Fishing

If you want to catch a few fish during your visit to Halsbeer Farm you have plenty of options.

There are stocked ponds just a short walk from the farm and rivers in the local vicinity - you'll be fishing in no time.

If you fancy going a bit further afield there are traditional trawler boats on the Devon coast that will take you mackerel or deep sea fishing and you can be back in time for tea to cook the day's catch.
