First time at fishing

First time at fishing

 

The joy of catching that first fish whilst on their camping holiday.

Some Guest comments regarding fishing on their holiday in North Devon..

Fishing is available too which was great, as you could hire the rod and basic kit from the on-site store. One of the wardens - Glyn, I think, was really helpful and showed the children how to fish and nothing was to much trouble for him. We joined up with two other families and really enjoyed ourselves. All of the facilities were excellent, clean and tidy.

We would especially like to thank Glynn for his assistance when setting up for fishing. This was our kids first time fishing and we ended up catching over 30 fish that day.

Special thanks to both Dave and Glyn for all their kind help and advice. Glyn is a fishing expert and you'd be wise to listen to his advice. We caught about 70 fish in the well stocked lake.

You get private access to the lake so can fish right next to your van. the weekend was designed around fishing which turned out to be very successful ! Any keen fishers give it a go, the lake is flooded with carp and tench and we caught about 50 carp over the 2 days. (They love crab paste pellets) the toilets and showers where spotless and modern.

 


Lovely Campsite!!

A lovely, clean campsite! The pitches are very large - we had a huge tent and a gazebo and a car and there was still room for the boys to kick a football around.

Fab amenities - the toilets are clean and the shower rooms (wet rooms) are fantastic for parents with small kids. Very spacious and an added bonus of under-floor heating. We never had to wait for a shower, but having said that, we were at the end of the season and the campsite was fairly empty!

Everyone around the campsite is very friendly. Fish and chip van was very popular, as was the huge oven that arrived to cook stone-baked pizzas!

The men/boys hired fishing rods and caught loads in the on-site lake.

Unfortunately, our trip was overshadowed by our 9 year falling and breaking his upper arm. An ambulance had to be called and most of the time was spent in and out of the hospital. I cannot thank and praise the staff enough (especially Judith) for their help and concern. We shall hopefully be returning next year as there is so much that we didn't get to see or do.
