The Arundell, one of Devon’s favourite rural, country sports hotels

Welcome to our world of calm, tucked away on the Cornwall Devon border, on the edge of Dartmoor. Our restaurant is renowned for seasonal, locally sourced, and wild food that is beautifully prepared. The Arundell offers delicious food and warm hospitality and is the perfect place to stay for fly fishing, walking, outdoor activities, eating wonderful food and exploring West Devon and North Cornwall.

An old coaching inn, situated in the village of Lifton, at the heart of the rolling countryside of West Devon.  We are just over a mile from the A30 and offer a convenient, accessible location.


Fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, lovingly prepared to an exacting standard.  Offering  breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea & dinner


We have 21 bedrooms, including 8 dog-friendly rooms in our Coach House.  Our  dog-friendly rooms have a dog washing area nearby and lots of clean dry towels! Our lovely self-catering cottage is on site next to the hotel.  It has a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen diner and a small sitting room with an open fire.


The Arundell has long been known as one of the best fly fishing schools in the country and particularly Devon.  The Arundell has 22 miles of wild fly fishing including the Tamar and four of its tributaries, perfect for wild brown trout, seatrout and salmon.  Buy a day ticket to fish on a mile long private beat. We specialise in teaching fly fishing and with our onsite fly fishing school we offer the very best in fly fishing instruction.  Some of our AAPGAI qualified instructors have more than 40 years experience teaching on our rivers.
