Four well stocked coarse fishing ponds as well B & B accommodation near Exeter & Cullompton are on offer at Newcourt Barton
Totalling an acre and a half of water in a gently sloping valley, the lakes are stocked with Common and Mirror Carp, Green and Silver Tench, Bream, Golden Orfe and Golden Rudd and vary in depth up to 6 feet. The four spring fed lakes provide a variety of fishing, catering for the pleasure angler who wants to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings to the more dedicated fisherman who is looking for a good days catch.
The first pond you approach from the road is primarily a Tench Pond with a few skimmer Bream. The next two ponds, one of which has an island, contain mainly Carp some weighing well into double figures. These ponds also have a mixture of Tench and Bream. The larger top pond again contains mainly Carp, but also has a selection of Golden Orfe and Golden Rudd.

On Saturday the 6th, my son and I fished at Newcourt Barton for the only time. With 4 lines in the water all day we failed to get one bite. The cost to fish was £5 each for 2 rods. We had set up on the 2nd pond where the owner said the fishing was a bit harder than the other 3 ponds. We did not see any carp or hear any carp. We fished the water at all depths with all the normal baits and not a bite all day on any of the 4 rods. Talking to other angelers fishing on the other two top ponds no one had managed any thing bigger than a 5 or 6 pound carp. This is not a water I would recomend.
