Located to the south of Jamaica Inn, the famous smugglers haunt immortalised by Daphne du Maurier, and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ( AONB ). Colliford is Cornwall’s largest inland water, with a vast surface area of 900 acres – that’s about 682 football pitches!
With easy access from the A30. and with ample parking, picnic areas and lakeside walks, Colliford provides the opportunity for a peaceful day in the countryside without the distraction of watersports which are not allowed on the lake. Three way marked walks take in neighbouring moorland and the Nature Reserve is an important site for birdlife including over-wintering wildfowl.
The lake offers traditional fly-fishing for natural brown trout and is regarded as Cornwall’s premier brown trout fishery. For more info click here
