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.


Monday morning blues at work following a fantastic week in North Devon with a wonderful stay at Warcombe Farm. The site is really lovely and the facilities outstanding, plus the staff very accommodating, who could want more! Will definitely be back next time we stay in North Devon!!

We stayed here Spring Bank holiday week. The site is very well presented and you are guided to your pitch on arrival. There is a large variety of pitches on this site. There is no entertainment other than a children's playground and woodland walk. This was fine for us. We stayed on the expensive premier pitches which overlooked the lake, they are very spacious if a little clinical.

Its a five minute drive to the beach at Woolacombe which is fantastic, we spent four glorious days on it. Parking is quite expensive but if you take a packed lunch its not a bad price for a day out.

Croyde bay is just down the coast a little. Ilfracombe is also close by. The nearest big town is Barnstaple which seems to have everything. If arriving Saturday Braunton is a real bottle neck and the approach road to the site is quite narrow with numerous large vehicles using it.

We would definitely stay again at this site but wouldn't pay for the superior pitch and pay for WiFi instead.
