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.

 


Fantastic fishing lake for all levels of anglers. My favourite campsite with toilets so luxurious you wouldn't believe. The lake is well stocked and hauled in 50 fish with my brother in 20 minutes.

Amazing site and fantastic customer service. We were shown to our pitch and had a long chat about the surrounding area.

The toilet and shower block were the best we had experienced. Pitch size was exceptional.

Local supermarket too although we bought essentials in the camp shop.

There really isn't much we need to say about this site other than this is incredible and you should book!

The weather was shocking so we sadly left a day early but we will definitely be back.
