Picture the scene; you’re away on a fishing holiday of a lifetime, you’ve spent the day down at the lakes enjoying a fine day of fishing. You’ve reeled in some of the best catches of the day and when all the fishing is done, it’s time to head back to you own luxury fishing lodge with a hot tub to relax, unwind and prepare for the next day of angling.
The Fishing Lodges
Nestled away in our own Devon Valley, Cofton’s Fishing Lodges offer something a little different for your Fishing Holiday in Devon.
Forget those tired old fishing cabins, our luxury lodges are finished to a very high standard and make the perfect retreat after a day sat on the banks. Set into the hillside and offering some of the best views over the Devon countryside, our lodges are just a short 5 minute walk to the water’s edge where you can cast off and fish until your heart’s content.
With a choice of 2 or 3 bedroom lodges to choose from, you can bring the family or share a fishing holiday experience with your friends.
Each lodge is equipped with a TV in every room, large en-suite showers and bathrooms, Bluetooth ceiling speaker, and a recessed TV in the lounge over the contemporary fitted fireplace. The living area is open plan with comfortable chairs and a dining table. And then there’s the extra large decking area complete with Hot Tub.
The Fishing Lakes
Exclusively for the use of our guests, our five feature-filled lakes are the perfect location for carp fishing holidays in the UK. So if you’re looking for Carp Fishing lodges in the UK, then look no further…
With 71 pegs to choose from across the five lakes, we’re sure that you’ll soon find your favourite spot.
Big Carp has been drawing anglers to our lakes for many years, in our specimen lake, Carp go up to 30lb. The Cofton Carp are stunning creatures, varying in shape and size. Varieties include mirror carp, Common Carp, and even koi-cross commons, which are a delightful surprise for our fishermen.
This year, we stocked new fish to supplement the existing stock, and the Carp reach early 30’s with plenty of big doubles to back them up. These are the target fish for many, but that’s not the whole story. Our pools are set out to cater to all angling abilities, and each offers a different challenge.
Gravel bars, reed margins, lilypads, and islands will challenge and excite you!
Do You Need to Pay Extra for Fishing?
Yes, there is an additional charge to fish in our five lakes. We offer daily or weekly tickets for guests or visitors, and each person is required to have their own ticket which covers one or two rods. Concession prices are also available for seniors and junior anglers. The cost of a daily ticket is £8.50 and a weekly ticket is £40.00.
What Type of Fishing is on Offer?
We offer coarse fishing across our five lakes where anglers can catch everything from King Carp, Crucian Carp, Bream, Tench, Roach, Rudd, Eels, Perch and more from a total of 71 pegs.
Some of your kind words...
A brilliant stay as always. We stayed in a cottage this time which was beautiful and very well equipped. Lots of lovely little touches with a welcome hamper and lots of board games. Hubbie was well impressed with the huge TV too. Loved the courtyard and we were lucky enough to have the weather to BBQ 2 of the days. All the staff from reception to the shop to the entertainment were friendly and very accommodating of both my girls. Used the chippy which has recently changed hands and the food was still great. There is lots to do, loved the swimming, the zip wire, the park and walk in the woods and around the fishing lake. Have to be honest though we missed the caravan...... will definitely be back, hopefully in the Fernworthy van with the hot tub.
Had an amazing weeks holiday. The park was immaculate, the outdoor pool was spotless and the cleaning blocks were cleaned regularly. All the staff were very helpful and the shop on site was reasonably priced. We went with two kids (aged 6 and 7) and our dog, the kids were never bored and had an amazing holiday. We will definitely be returning next year!
My family and I stayed for 5 nights in July, aged between 13 and 40 and we all had a brilliant family stay. The teenagers loved the outdoor pool and the woods and we all loved the donkeys. I’ve been coming here since I was a child and it’s still got a lovely relaxing atmosphere and has all the facilities you could want for a camping holiday. I must say the fish and chip shop is the best we have ever had at a holiday park, reasonable prices and good sized portions. We have booked to come back again on 25th August for a week and can’t wait!
I visited when my relatives came over from Canada and fell in love. I was lucky enough to stay for a week last August for my sons 2nd birthday. It has got to be one of my favourite places to go. Absolutely beautiful, quiet, good facilities, lovely restaurants. The staff are outstanding. I can't wait to come back again this year!
Stayed in campervan for a weekend. Great campsite good location, plenty of things for all to do. Great fishing lakes all in a short walk through the woodland to the lovely Dawlish Warren and Dawlish. Couldn't fault.

I just want to say how impressed my fellow Motorhomers and Caravaners were with the welcome and service we received during our stay. Staff in the office were polite and helpful at all times. Scott the restaurant manager was most accommodating when I enquired about reserving space for 25 to 30 of us for lunch after a walk. The service in the restaurant was speedy the food hot and varied. We were very pleased with the standards. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful and polite and helped make our meal most enjoyable. We had such a good time that we will be returning again next year for our Xmas Rally.
The best holiday park we've been to in our motorhome. Our children aged 2 and 4 loved it. Great facilities, entertainment and activities in one of the best parts of Devon!
Delicious fish and chips, friendly and helpful staff and delightful woodland.

We usually camp 3 times a year and hire a caravan after the Christmas break at Cofton, and will continue to do so. We thoroughly recommend staying there. Great for families or just the 2 of you.
