Within our travels around Devon to fish for carp; Newbarn Angling Centre was by far the worst.
We went there on the 27th Sept 2011 hoping for good things as we had read all the reports prior to our holiday. Imagine our surprise when we found the carp lake had lost nearly all of its water. We were informed by one of the staff that it had sprung a leak and that all the rain over the Torbay area had missed them. We were then directed to a higher lake which was impossible to reach by the car ( I am disabled ) In the end we gave up. Newbarn should inform people via their website of any problems. We wasted our time: but more than that I feel sorry for the people who had booked a holiday there. At the moment this place is just hyped up to be something it is not.
