Moorhead Farm offers superb coarse fishing holidays in North Devon
Enjoy a coarse fishing holiday in North Devon at Moorhead Country Holidays .
Coarse and carp fishing is free on our private 1 acre fishing lake. The coarse fishing lake is very secluded and tranquil – it is a short (5 minutes) walk away from the main complex, and is surrounded by hedgerow of the neighbouring farmers’ fields.
Our mature 25 year old lake is fed by a natural spring. It is stocked with Carp to 20lb, Bream to 7lb, Perch to 3lbs and Rudd. It’s not a commercial fishing lake (so expect a good fight and don’t expect an easy catch) with exclusive fishing for our holiday guests – and a handful of very avid local fishermen. It has therefore been only lightly fished and many fisherman have commented on the pristine condition of our fish.
The lake represents the ultimate in tranquillity and is a haven for wildlife, including kingfishers and snipe, Canadian geese and moorhens, butterflies, damson flies and dragon flies.
There is no closed season. EA Licences are required (of course) and we request that only barbless hooks are used. We would also prefer keepnets and boillies not to be used.
