Escot House

A short but very pleasant ,unspoilt and peaceful walk through the Escot Estate near Feniton.

The river Tale runs through the estate , once full of trout as described in Thackeray's Pendennis:

' He took to fishing the Brawl [Tale], which runs through the Park, and passes not very far from the garden-wall. And by the oddest coincidence, Miss Amory would walk out and would be quite surprised to see Mr. Pendennis fishing.
I wonder what trout Pen caught while the young lady was looking on? or whether Miss Blanche was the pretty little fish which played round his
fly, and which Mr. Pen was endeavouring to hook?
'
