The Arundell Arms is a former 18th century coaching inn, situated in the heart of the West Country and close to the Devon and Cornwall border. It is one of England’s premier sporting hotels, with more than 20 miles of private fishing on six different rivers and shooting available nearby.
The hotel has been run by the same family for more than 45 years and Adam Fox-Edwards, the son of Anne Voss-Bark, whose passion for fishing inspired it for nearly half a century, has recently taken over with his wife and sons.
Each of the hotel’s 21 ensuite bedrooms, four with ground floor access, include tea and coffee making facilities, direct dial telephone, flatscreen television, luxury Gilchrist & Soames toiletries and guest laundry service. There is Wi-Fi available in all of our bedrooms and throughout the hotel public areas.
The Arundell Arms boasts an award-winning restaurant, a hotel bar serving lunch and dinner daily, conference and function facilities, two private dining rooms, a skittles alley and games room and entertainment and homemade pub grub in The Courthouse Bar.
Fishing and tuition is available to residents and non-residents, as well as nearby golf facilities, coastal walks, horse riding and other Dartmoor activities. The world-famous Eden Project is just 45 minutes from the hotel, with some of the finest surfing beaches in Europe also just 40 minutes away.
The hotel has been owned and run since 1961 by Anne Voss-Bark. A former winner of the Woman Hotelier of the Year Award, she was honoured in 1994 to receive the M.B.E. for services to tourism. She is herself a keen fisherman and was recently presented with a lifetime Achievement Award for services to Angling.
In 2006 she celebrated the prestigious award presented from the Good Hotel Guide of "Sporting Hotel of the Year." Her book "West Country Fly Fishing," a collection of essays by experts and friends including Ted Hughes, Dermot Wilson, Brian Clarke and her late husband Conrad Voss Bark, is considered a classic.
The kitchen is headed by Master Chef of Great Britain, Steven Pidgeon supported by a talented and enthusiastic young team.
The Arundell Arms fishing is looked after by David Pilkington and Tim Smith who are not only outstanding fishermen but have taught over thousands of men and women, boys and girls to fish.
We are particularly proud that many of our staff have been with us for many years and one of our greatest pleasures is when our guests return.
