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.

 


Superb Site and helpful staff

Stayed for a week on site in our Fifth Wheel mid April. Excellent site facilities, clean and spacious.

The Warden and staff made us very welcome and were extremely helpful especially when we were trying to put up our awning for the first time! The site was quiet at this time which suited us.

Pitches are nicely spaced out, many surrounding the fishing lake. Recommend the walk from the site to join the South Coastal route. Easy access to Mortehoe and Woolacombe beach.

For off road easy cycling - not too far from Braunton, Barnstaple or Bideford where you can access the Tarka trail. We also enjoyed the golf at Saunton. With so much on offer and a lovely site we will definitely try and return.
