Blakewell trout fishery and fish farm was established 30 years ago. The owners had the vision then to see what it has become today; a Mecca for all lovers of quality fly fishing looking for sport on a lake that is both natural and beautiful, full of insect life and fed by pure spring water from the hills of Exmoor. A lake to compare with the small crystal waters one can only find in Scotland and Ireland.
But more than that, the owners also saw the potential to make Blakewell the premier destination for all lovers of water gardens and gardening. Set in a quiet valley with a sparkling stream fed from Exmoor and overlooked by tree studded Devon hills, it is idyllic. It was the perfect spot to realize their dream.
