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.

 


Camping with friends.

First class campsite, excellent facilities, regular bus service nearby pub with a brilliant carvery. Would recommend this establishment. Good base for Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Barnstaple and North Devon.

Lovely clean facilities

Stayed here for three nights with a group of friends. We had a lovely big pitch which was edged with trees/bushes to separate it from the others around us. The campsite had a lovely feel about it and friendly too.

When we arrived the lady in reception was friendly and welcoming. We were shown to our pitch by one of the male staff members who was helpful and friendly. We booked a picnic bench which was a great bonus for us to eat outside and sit out in the sun (we were lucky with the weather and only had rain during one of the nights) we were a little walk away from the facilities but it didn't bother us, in fact we liked it as it was less busy and quieter where we were.

The showers were great, big cubicles, with ample shelving and a bin. They were clean and temperature was right. The toilets were clean too, especially as height of season they we kept well.

Loved the wetsuit washing area which was perfect for us to get our suits and shoes rinsed off. On one of the nights there was a power cut in the whole area but the backup generator was put on quickly and were informed by a member of staff outside the facilities.

We walked in the meadow area which was great and joined onto the coastal path. There was also a lake for fishing, children's play area, a small shop, takeaway and a free herb garden. Would stay here again, a great find!
