Field Sports

The Half Moon Inn is situated in the heart of rural Devon, and is surrounded by an abundance of nearby country estates with which we have a working relationship.

We can arrange sporting days for individuals or teams of guns, followed by a relaxing meal and a good night’s sleep back at the inn.
