Fishing Holidays in North Devon

Whether you’re a keen or an occasional fisherman or woman, fishing in this area is a memorable experience. In fact, the North Devon coast has some of the best places to fish in the country and is only lightly fished compared to other areas.

We can’t guarantee a catch, of course, but as they say, there are plenty of fish in the sea. Old familiars like cod, bass and plaice are likely catches, as are flounder and dab. Dab is a little like sole. While flounder has a mild flavour and delicate texture. Lake and reservoir fishing is popular too, although you will have to obtain a permit. Or why not charter a boat, complete with a skipper, and spend a day fishing out as sea. 

Nothing beats the taste of freshly caught fish. So whatever you manage to catch, bring it back to Ash Barton and stick it on the BBQ for dinner. Just add a little oil and a few spices. Delicious.
