Cofton – The bees knees on environmental care…

At Cofton we take great pride in keeping our gardens looking plush and flower beds blossoming. Aside from gardens of beauty, as a team we take great pride in looking after the environment and creating habitats where wildlife can thrive. This includes butterfly gardens and flower beds situated all around the holiday park.

Flowerbeds

As part of this years entertainment schedule, the team have worked hard to make sure that as well as fun for the family, there are interesting educational elements that help your children to learn the importance of looking after the environment.

Jay Wallace-Langan Head of Entertainment at Cofton commented on this years unique entertainments agenda saying, “We wanted to provide entertainment which was outside of what you would normally expect at a holiday park. We have a whole host of indoor and outdoor activities, but new for 2019 are lots more activities all about  appreciating the great outdoors and the natural environment”.

Recycling

Recycling has always been a huge priority for Cofton, with a commitment to responsible waste management throughout the site. We work in partnership with Devon Contract Waste who operate on the basis of Zero to landfill and also have adopted recyclable materials wherever possible.

To take this a step further we wanted to help our youngest visitors to understand the importance of recycling and the responsible use of plastics. To illustrate this we created a quiz and put an environmental twist on the classic game kerplunk. This exhilarating game saw children and their parents go head to head to answer environmental questions against the clock, remove sticks and plastic bottles from our giant game  and go on to win the game.

Nature Kerplunk

Flowers and Bees

To help our insect habitats to thrive, our children’s daytime entertainment included the creation flower bombs, embedding seeds in clay to create an explosion of colour and habitats for those all important bee populations. Bee populations are fast diminishing and so the more we can do to produce fantastic habitats the better.



Biomass  Education

At Cofton we have invested heavily in biomass technology for a more eco-friendly way of generating the energy needed to power the site. During a recent session, we spent time teaching children about the biomass generator, giving an insight into why it is cleaner and greener. One delivery of wood chips can power Cofton for 10 days, including heating the swimming pool and showers.

Mark Bartlett holidays at Cofton and making time for some Fishing

At Cofton we are extremely proud of the diverse fishing experience we offer to our guests. In summer 2018 we were excited to welcome Mark Bartlett to our park and lakes, a fox consultant and  2 times winner of the british carp championship.

Mark Bartlett

Although the purpose of his visit was to have a relaxing family break, of course he made time to fish on the lakes while he relaxed, here is what he had to say;

“Cofton is a great place to spend time. Aside from the awesome surroundings in the countryside and the facilities as a holiday park, you can escape to the lakes which are perfect to accommodate all types of fishing.

During my stay at Cofton, I fished at dawn creeping around the corners of the lakes, stalking the carp, before heading back for breakfast with a few fish under my belt. Then in the evening catching carp to upper doubles on floaters in the Luscombe and Trusham Lakes.

On the Wednesday of my trip I fished the mid week open match on Mamhead lake, which was another great day catching carp on the waggler and feeder to an island. I then had a late run of decent skimmers on the pole to win the match which was fantastic.

During the days we also spent time with the kids on the Powderham lake where we fished with a little float on light gear catching small carp, tench and even some crucians. The kids loved it and it was a nice reminder of how I grew up fishing, fun for everyone.”

Mark came for a Family holiday, but couldn’t leave without trying out Coftons carp fishing experience.

A fun packed half term for children – Essential Survival Skills at Cofton

Survival SkillsSurvival Skills

During the session the participants learnt all important knot tying skills, before building a shelter that was both creature and monster proof.

Den building

After successful shelters had been built, the teams had to solve a puzzle and learn to read a map with our orienteering challenge. The aim was to find your way around the forest, using the map and searching for hidden numbers on trees. Each number on the tree had an accompanying letter, the aim was to be the first team to solve the puzzle and spell the word.

New Fish for 2019 -Introducing 9 New Hand Picked Specimen Carp

In October 2018 we were delighted to welcome 9 hand picked specimen carp to the fishery as part of a continued investment in the fish stocks at Cofton. You will find these stunning carp in their brand new home in the Trusham Specimen Lake.

New Fish

In early 2018 we drained the lake and netted the fish removing the silvers and the majority of the small carp. Over 100 single figure carp were moved to the match lake. 80 fish from doubles to 24 lb were put back giving them the room to flourish and hopefully grow on. The new fish were sourced from top fish farmers at Priory Fishery have now settled in and will be gracing the nets of our guests this season and hopefully for many seasons to come.

5 of these fish weigh over the magic 20lb with the others not far behind. Young, scaley mirrors each very distinctive and individual. It is going to be exciting tracking their growth over the coming years. Trusham is now set to be an amazing specimen water with everything in place to make fantastic fishing memories. Weights for the new fish 23.6, 22.4, 20.8, 20.4, 20.2, 19.8, 18.8, 18.2, 15.3 all mirrors.
