Ilfracombe Harbour

Ilfracombe Harbour

 

If you're coming to North Devon for a fishing holiday, one of your first stops will be Ilfracombe. Located on the north coast tip of the county that has more coastline than any other, at the point at which the Bristol Channel meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Ilfracombe has a natural harbour which has been extended over the centuries and is well-known to offer a variety of different fishing trips. You can simply line fish off of the pier or the sea walls at Capstone and around Ilfracombe harbour. There are also a number of professional businesses that can host a boat charter.

Several fishing boats take anglers out for daily fishing trips that are anywhere from 1.5 hours to all-day trips. Deep sea fishing is available with half-day and all-day packages. On these fishing trips all bait, tackle and rods will be provided. Species like conger eel, Pollock, Bull Huss, Bass are common catches.

 


Had a lovely albeit brief stay here and found the owners particularly welcoming, very competitive rates in the high season rivals another popular site we frequent on the Isle of Man although this one has far better facilities!

Just had a really good week at Warcombe - such a fantastic campsite and I wanted to record my grateful thanks to George who helped me set up my caravan. What a wonderful help he was; genuinely friendly and helpful and a great asset to your site. And, your shower facilities are unbelievable! Certainly worthy of a five star hotel, never mind a campsite!! Thank you.
