Fishing Success

Fishing Success

 

Catching that big fish can add that extra bonus to the holiday.

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

And on our rainiest day spent the day fishing the kids still enjoyed it sitting under the umbrella taking shelter, plenty of fish caught to keep them busy.

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

My husband is a keen fisherman and was very impressed with the lake, It is very well stocked with a good variety of fish. Glynn one of the warden is very helpful and will also give lessons and advice on fishing. They have fishing equipment that can also be hired out.

Great fishing! Hours of fun spent at the lake! Great quality fish! Great condition! Highly recommended!

The lake is well looked after by Glynn and has plenty of fish for all from little tiddlers to good sized mirror and common carp - we pulled out plenty of low doubles with 14lb our best but did witness one slightly bigger. Glynn is the perfect camp help, whether for fishing tips, where to go in the area, where to eat out or just really friendly face for a chat.

We did have a little challenge with Julie on who could catch on the most bizarre bait - think we lost that one. Yes marshmallows worked, but so did many of the other cocktail treats she offered. Still think she won ' smallest' fish of the holiday as well.

 


Great time, facilities best I have seen

We Visited this campsite in May and can only say that we will definitely be going back and soon.

The site is well kept, has a superb fishing lake and all the pitches are spacious, for all the Tenters out there the pitches for the tents are as good, being set amongst various hedges and giving a good degree of privacy and peace and quiet.

The shower and toilet block are fab with very spacious shower facilities. The block is very well kept. We can't comment on the washing up area as we did not use it due to being in a motorhome.

There is a good walk for the Dogs and this links to the public coastal foot path for Mortehoe (which has a very Good pub or two to stop in on the way home!) This path also takes routes to Bull point Light House and Lee Bay.

The beach at Woolacombe is splendid but can get busy at peak times, but its great for the kids You can also take dogs on to the beach, but you need to head for the far left hand side of the beach. There are life guards on duty, but just remember to observe the flags as there is a rip tide that can cause havoc to the unwary swimmers and amateur boarders among you.

The beach is about a ten minute drive or bike ride. The bike ride back is a tough one because its all uphill! (10 minutes down, 1 Hour Back)

Going back to the camp site we tested the takeaway and had a brilliant Tea. The menu is quite varied, its not the cheapest but the wait was well worth it as the food is good, especially when its raining and the Bar B Que is redundant!

There is a good Children's Play Area which would test the most active of little people with lots of swings. A Tyre Slide and General Climbing Frame.

There is no bar or clubhouse if you are looking for a site with the Hi D Hi Factor and entertainment, then go down the road as this wont be the place for you.

Had a great time, facilities best I have seen, will be back soon!
