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.

 


Favourite Campsite

This is easily one of our favourite campsites as we always have a quiet and relaxed time when we camp here. The pitches are a good size with lots of lovely green space. The site is very well maintained and there is a well equipped play park that my children aged 7 and 10 really enjoy playing on. The facilities are very good in particular the family shower block offers huge shower rooms, ideal when you have young children to get showered.

The wardens are friendly and welcoming and always visible on the site. I've always found them very helpful and great with suggestions as to what's available locally.

Perhaps the best recommendation is that we camped on this site last summer, booked again this year and already plan to book again next summer.

Perfection!! Again and Again

Third time here and again it was perfect. This campsite spoils you completely from the 5 star amenity blocks to the tranquil setting. We love that the site is quiet and is so peaceful in the evenings.

The staff again have been fab, always friendly and going above and beyond for everyone. There is lots do to in the surrounding areas, this time we did the tractor and trailer rice, a 12 mile bike ride, hubby fished on the lake for a couple if days and hubby and son went down to the trout farm near Barnstaple and caught us tea.

We also took a trip to Padstow to sample Rick Steins delights. I would highly recommend.

New additions this time were the different food wagons that came in. All were Fab, stone baked pizzas matched the standards in Italy, Paella from The Cauldron was as nice as what I've sampled in Barcelona and I have to say Miles fish and chips were nicer then Magpies in Whitby!

I'm sure I've missed so much out but I cannot stress how lovely and perfect this site is for couples and families. We love it!!

Thank you for making our holidays full of memories, we are planning next years visits already!
