Rackerhayes Fishing


Newton Road, Kingsteignton, TQ12 3RN, Devon, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

The Rackerhayes Complex used to be controlled by Newton Abbot Anglers but we can’t find any information about this on their website now. If you know who runs it please let us know in the comments below so we can update it.

This fishery can be found just outside of Newton Abbot just behind Tesco. Even though its near Tesco, once you go through the gates you will feel like you are a hidden part of the world away from the hustle and bustle of everything.

To access the fishery you will need a key from the association and there is a car park with room for plenty of cars here.
