Located south of Jamaica Inn the famous smugglers haunt immortalised by Daphne du Maurier and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ( AONB ), Colliford is the second largest lake in Cornwall providing a 14km perimeter walk leading to some excellent moorland trails. Easy access from the A30.
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. Permits are available from The Jamaica Inn 01566 86250.
