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.

 


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!!

A marvellous time

Just got back. What a great site. The shower block is a good as it gets.

The tent pitches are spaced and landscaped to give a really nice atmosphere. The staff were really welcoming and helpful and it does have a great family atmosphere.

It is very likely we will go again.

How good was it?
Well we went for the first time with out 2 year old and had lousy weather, plus a tent we had never used before and yet had a marvellous time. Well worth a visit!
