I was saddened to read the last report posted on this site. Myself, my husband and our dog have been coming to Tavistock Trout fisheries for the past 8 years and we probably visit on average about 8 times a year. Believe you me we would not return if we thought that the owner was 'abusive'! Abigail has worked tirelessly to improve the farm & there has been many improvements made during the time that we have been visiting. The cottages are fantastic and you find everything there that you need. Attention to detail in the cottages is 2nd to none. Not once have we ever encountered anything but a warm friendly welcome from Abigail - we are normally greeted with a bottle of wine & welcome pack in the cottage on arrival. The scenery is brilliant & peaceful. Abigail will bend over backwards to accommodate your every need. My husband is a major passionate fisherman and believe u me he has caught some whoopers here. What is great is that there is a children's lake that permits kids to have a go and they are guaranteed to catch something. There is free tea & coffee for all anglers & that is served in a beautiful lodge overlooking the lakes. The 'farm yard' area has animals rooming freely. There is a great children's play area and also a really nice gazebo with bar-b-queuing facilities. The icing on the cake is the pub across the road. Park up and walk across the road and enjoy some locally produced beers. We are going back for Xmas this year as in previously years. Abigail decorates the cottages & puts Christmas trees within them. Abigail works tirelessly to make this fishery successful and I think that the one negative comment on this site does not ring true to our experiences. We really do enjoy our time staying at the trout fishery & I hate fishing but am happy to walk into the local village which is lovely or visit the beauty room which is located on site down at the fishing lodge. Please don't be put off by the comment made by another visitor on this site - everybody has their own opinion but my experiences are nothing like there's. I would also like to mention that there are several signs when entering the fishery that clearing state it's closed on a Monday & it's on their website and all their information flyers as well!!!!!
