About the hotel

A quintessential 17th Century Inn, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, at the bottom of a steep valley next to Bow Creek and bridge. The Inn has been used as a smithy, a brew house, petrol station, a prison and a haunt for the feared press gangs. The area was recorded in the doomsday book.

Built in the 17th-century, Waterman’s Arms overlooks tinkling Bow Creek, near Tuckenhay. Hidden away at the bottom of a steep valley, the streamside tables are perfect for savouring a pint of the fine Palmer’s Copper Ale. The lunches, sourced from local suppliers and served under an outdoor awning, attract foodies from as far away as Exeter and Plymouth. Golfing, fishing and walking are just a few of the hundreds of opportunities for outdoor adventure whilst staying at The Waterman's Arms. We have seven top class golf courses just a short car ride from us and if you let us know that you are wishing to play we can assist you with all the necessary arrangements, stocked lakes to fly fish and miles of tranquil rivers where you can laze away hours in the hazy afternoon sun. We have fifteen beautiful, well appointed en-suite rooms with large bathrooms and powerful showers in the Annexe and spacious powerful shower rooms in the Inn. Direct dial telephones and free Wi-Fi equipped throughout. We have two separate dining rooms, on three different levels, seating no more than 35 people in each, they have been recently updated and are now bright, airy and as modern as a 17th century inn can be! Being close to the stunning Devon coast opens up not only the chance to walk a part of the beautiful and awe-inspiring Southwest Coastal Footpath but offers fishing both onshore and off one of the many wrecks that litter our shoreline.

The Watermans Arms

Just wish I was more confident driving those Devon lanes but location on Bow Creek was so relaxing a long evening sitting in the late sun on the riverbank couldn't be bettered.

Food was good and the landlord makes effort to be helpful. Paintwork in hotel guests area a bit tired but room was much better and couldn't really fault it, view over the creek was special.

A little gem tucked away near Tuckenhay

From the moment I arrived the owner Les and his staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming.

Having driven a long way I was most in need of great food and great ale which were easy to find at the Waterman's Arms. The helpings were generous and the quality of the food was outstanding. The bacon and sausages I had at breakfast were easily some of the best I have tasted. A very cosy, charming and traditional feeling pub in a stunning location. Well worth a stay.
