Property Description

A truly superb stretch of both single and double bank fishing on the renowned River Barle.
Running south from the outskirts of Dulverton to Perry Weir, just south of Brushford.
Formerly known as the A and B Beats of the then well-known Carnarvon Arms Hotel.

The River Barle rises some 450 metres above sea level, within an area known as “The Chains” on the north west plateau of Exmoor. In the 1800s the Barle was damned at its source (Pinkery Pond) by the industrialist John Knight, to create a reservoir. The river flows south and then east to Simonsbath and Withypool collecting additional flow from the lesser known “Barle Water”, “White Water”, “Sherdon Water” and “Pennycombe Water” tributaries. From Withypool the river flows south east to Dulverton, passing through the historically renowned Tarr Steps (with its ancient stone “Clapper Bridge”) and picks up further flow along the way from “West Water”, “Little River” and “Danes Brook”. Ultimately the river then passes through the fishing rights presently for sale, shortly after which it joins the River Exe at Exebridge. Exmoor is a sparsely wooded with steep sided “V” shaped valleys which broaden at Dulverton and south towards Exebridge.

Whilst there are two “Beats” our clients wish to offer both for sale as one. They are however described as two separate “Beats” due to the historical nature of the fishing and due to each “Beats” own individual renown.

Double and single bank fishing on the Barle – The left bank running from approximately the lower side of New Bridge to the Kissing Gate and Telegraph Pole Hedge two fields upstream. 811 yards (741 metres). The right bank runs from the lower side of New Bridge to the garden fence of Penlee, Dulverton (the first property on entering the outskirts of the town). 1473 yards (1347 metres). The stretch includes both named pools and The Salmon Leap

Double bank fishing on the lower stretch of the Barle – The left bank running from the bottom of Perry Weir to the lower side of New Bridge. 907 yards (830 metres). The right bank runs from the topside of the mill leat gate to the lower side of New Bridge. 1006 yards (920 metres).

Access is on foot only. Please contact the agents for specific directions. However, as a general guide, it can be accessed from Dulverton at the very foot of Milhams Lane across the fields running south. Alternatively from either New Bridge or Iron Bridge. New Bridge is privately owned property and we would not recommend parking here. From Iron Bridge the fishing can be accessed in either direction. Again whilst the road here is public highway, we would recommend that you park with caution and care in an area allowing the free flow of any traffic.

The rights are for the sale and exclusive right of fishing and taking further fish together with the right to trim the banks, trees and bushes overhanging the river, to cut weeds and make pools for the purposes of such fishing rights.

For sale by Private Treaty (reserving the rights to offer the same for sale by Informal Tender if necessary).

Identification only and not to scale.

Viewing is strictly by appointment only please. Please contact Webbers Fine & Country Dulverton office on 01398 324818 before viewing. All parties viewing the fishing do so at their own risk and are expected to take their own necessary safety precautions if inspecting the fishing rights. Viewing should only be carried out during day light hours. There may be livestock grazing the land adjoining so please do be careful and keep all gates closed at all times.
