Run with families in mind, our aim is to
make your holiday as relaxing & enjoyable as possible, nothing

There are many places where good rock fishing can be
found on the North Coast, with an abundance of different species for
the keen angler.
Good marks for ray and turbot are Trenance and
Trevose where good quality pollock, mackerel, wrasse, garfish,
plaice, dabs and conger can also be found.
Park Head is well known for a wonderful variety
including gurnard, ray, pollock and wrasse.
Rumps Point to the east of Padstow for gurnard,
ray, pollock and wrasse. Daymer Bay and the wave cut platforms at Pentire
are both good marks but require caution.

which also abound at Navax Point. Rumps Point at St Agnes
for gurnard, ray, plaice and dabs.
Beach Fishing / Beach Casting
It should be noted that in summer the beaches are very
popular with bathers and holidaymakers so beach and times should be
chosen with some care.

are good marks for codling, flat fish, mackerel, whiting and dogfish.
