Fabulous fishing at the Lower Maddaford fishery situated at the Ashbury Hotel. Fishing has been available to guests since 2003 and has become very popular. As a result a new lake has been constructed. At approximately 4 acres in size, it is stocked with common and Mirror Carp up to 20 lbs. This compliments our existing 2 acre lake which is well stocked with, mirror, common, ghost, koi carp as well as, tench, rudd and roach. We provide the ultimate fishing experience for experienced fisherman and beginners alike. Prices are £5.00 per adult £3.00 for under 12's (full or part day.)

(All anglers must have an EA rod licence - temporary licences are available on site £3.25 per day)


Guided Walks.

Our popular guided walks take place on Dartmoor throughout the week. All guided walks are arranged at the Manor Hotel Hotel, and after a brief talk, guests travel to the appropriate starting point for each particular walk. All walks have been graded so that walkers of all abilities can experience the spectacular scenery for which Dartmoor is famous.


Horse Riding.

Several local stables offer horse-riding and pony-trekking on Dartmoor, details of which are available at both hotels. Most of the stables listed cater for riders of all ages and experience, so if you haven't ridden before, or it's been a while, this is an ideal way of seeing Dartmoor.


Rock Climbing and Abseiling.

This activity is arranged during peak times. We have made arrangements for these sessions to take place at the Youth Hostel in Okehampton, which has a climbing wall and abseil route. This will ensure that irrespective of weather conditions the sessions will go ahead; if the weather is exceptionally bad, we have access to an indoor climbing wall at Okehampton College.



Watersports are available at Roadford Lake between April and October. Details are available from both Hotels.
