Tight Lines!

Summer Carp

Our fishing guests have certainly enjoyed themselves this year at Forda.
All four ponds have fished really well (our current November guests are still bagging up!), and our newest Meadow Pond is now well established and the fish are steadily growing.
We especially enjoy seeing our younger guests catching the angling bug - even more so when they share their pictures with us!


October Half Term

And the Winner Is..........

Bude takes the bronze medal
A lovely end to the year with Bude winning the bronze medal for Best UK Coastal Resort in the 2014 British Travel Awards, and Cornwall once again scooping gold for Best UK Holiday Destination - for the SIXTH consecutive year!

Cornwall wins gold for the sixth year!

Everyone is thrilled when they spot one of our resident kingfishers - but they are notoriously difficult to catch on camera! We were very grateful when one of our regular guests sent us this picture which he managed to take last week when fishing at the ponds - thank you Adrian!

They're Growing Up Fast!

Back in the summer of 2010, Colin and Harry went fishing and caught a baby carp weighing just a few ounces. Before releasing the fish, they took a photo so that they would be able to recognise him again in the future.

Fast forward to May 2014, and the same fish now weighs in at 6lb 2oz! Not long before he hits double figures!

Cornish Badger

Well, it took Colin a few attempts with a wildlife camera but he persevered and caught a few seconds of this beautiful badger in the woods at Forda. We think it was well worth the wait!
