Fishing at THE PIG-at Combe

The beautiful River Otter rises in the Blackdown Hills above Otterhead lakes and flows South West to the sea at Budleigh Salterton. It is a limestone trout stream that has many characteristics of a chalk stream and can be fished using the same tactics.

There are 7 beats split over nearly 3 miles with deep pools, shallow runs and deep glides.

Nestled in the Otter Valley... 

THE PIG-at Combe is just off the A30 in the village of Gittisham, just 1.5 miles from Honiton. It is 8 miles from the south Devon coast and 15 mins to Exeter.

 

 

Totally secluded, THE PIG-at Combe is set in 3,500 acres of lush Devonshire countryside in the pretty thatched village of Gittisham.

We're just five minutes from the market town of Honiton, famous for both Honiton lace and Honiton pottery. Regarded as the antiques capital of the South West, why not walk the Bric-a-Brac trail with 38 shops to wile the afternoon away.

Exeter city is just 15 minutes away, there you can visit the Gothic Cathedral or shop along Exeter's cobbled alleyways.
