A very warm welcome to The Half Moon Inn
The Half Moon Inn is a sixteenth century, Grade Two listed historic fishing inn, which dates back to 1540. Nestled in the heart of the traditional, unspoilt Devon village of Sheepwash, and overlooking the Torridge Valley, our inn is located in some of the most picturesque countryside you’ll ever find.
For accommodation, dining reservations and country sports please contact us.
We would just like to thank everyone at the Half Moon, Sheepwash, for making our stay so enjoyable.
Great Pub, Great Beer, Great rooms, Great location, Fabulous staff –
nothing was to much trouble.
Wishing you all the best for the future in these uncertain times. Take care!
