Our four stunning lakeside Norwegian lodges benefit from the panoramic and breathtaking views of Exmoor, Dartmoor and the Blackdown Hills providing the perfect retreat to forget about the world and do nothing but relax.

Our two small and intimate lakes provide fishing for beginners to the more experienced and the best thing is, the walk to the lakes is less than 1 minute from the lodges!

Nestled in the Blackdown Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, South Combe Waters is perfectly placed for walkers & cyclists who choose to blow the cobwebs away and enjoy the exhilarating countryside. An abundance of local walks for those who like to stroll or for the more adventurous, Dartmoor and Exmoor are only a 40 minute drive away. We are truly spoilt for choice!

With good access to the M5/A30, our holiday Lodges also make the perfect base for visits to Exmoor, the North Coast, Dartmoor in the west and also Exeter or browse the wonderful antique shops in Honiton.

Our Lakes

We hope that the fishing at South Combe Waters enables people of all abilities to catch and enjoy that magical feeling of success on the bank! Whilst the fishing at times can be slow on the Specimen Lake large catches are possible with the right approach.

The ‘Mystery Lake’ is a very pretty lake to fish. Two islands to fish to and one bank which runs alongside a natural wooded area. ‘Mystery Lake’ contains Mirror, Common, Grass and Koi Carp upto 12lbs, Perch, Roach, Rudd, Bream, Orfe, Tench and Chub. A wonderful little lake that is full of surprises! A perfect stalking lake and a place for children to catch their first ever fish.

The ‘Specimen Lake’ is very well stocked with carp of 20lbs+ with some great features to fish to. Varying depths to 6ft with one small island. The carp are on a progressive feeding programme and are gaining weight so be prepared for a tussle. Adequate tackle is needed although fishing with high test curve rods is really not needed. Baits that have been working very well are boilies over beds of pellet, pepparami/luncheon meat and of course when the sun is out, never forget surface fishing.
