Ilfracombe Fishing Excursions

Ilfracombe Fishing Excursions

 

There are several fishing charter boats in neighbouring Ilfracombe, offering summer mackerel fishing trips, wildlife excursions and deep wreck fishing along the North Devon coastline.

Many are a family run boats which have been run as a family business from Ilfracombe for generations. Where generations ago they would have worked inshore trawlers, in more recent years the families began sharing their knowledge of the local waters with others through the pleasure boat industry.

Ilfracombe sea fishing charters can offer everything from 2 hour inshore mackerel fishing trips to 4hr, 8hr or 10hr rough ground, or wreck fishing trips, usually with all fishing gear supplied. They have trips perfect for first time fishers, families, couple's or for the most seasoned of anglers!

Fishing out of Ilfracombe you can have access to a number of wrecks, fishing for Pollock, Cod, Ling, Bass and Conger. Away from the wrecks, fishing for Conger, Bass, Whiting and Dogfish.

 


A brilliant site! The welcome was warm, the site was immaculate and the facilities were the best of any site I have visited in the UK. We visited as a family of four and as a parent I felt the site was very safe and the kids loved the play area.

Our pitch was very quiet and set in a pretty little woodland alcove with a sea view.

The site is located close to a number of top beaches and is the ideal place stay if you want to explore the area.

If you don't want to cook in the evening no problem! Independent food vendors visit the site and sell everything from fish and chips to stone baked pizzas. All food is fresh reasonably prized and tasted great.

I have already recommended this site to my friends and I would recommend this site to anyone else thinking of staying in North Devon.

Campsite Heaven!

We spent 8 nights here recently in our motorhome and found everything just perfect. The layout of the campsite is lovely, plenty of grass pitches, with or without electric, lots are quite private with hedges round, then there are more open hardstanding pitches with electric or fully serviced. They are all centred around a very pretty fishing lake.

Two sanitary blocks, absolutely fantastic with underfloor heating and kept spotless! They also have a small cafe/takeaway with various menus, including breakfast. The wardens are so very helpful and nothing is too much trouble, especially Glen who, because my husband is disabled, did most of our setting up, and Gloria who put us on a lovely pitch just yards away from both the facilities and lake.

Close to a pub (carvery delicious!). We will definitely be back for more, it's so relaxing and has a fantastic atmosphere!!
