Our beautiful lake is fed by crystal clear spring water from Exmoor & set in a deep valley surrounded by rolling green hills and woodland. The quality of our hard fighting, razor finned rainbow & brown trout is outstanding and well recognised by the many anglers that visit Blakewell - often you will see us featured in Trout Fisherman. Our lake is well managed; we take care to ensure abundant fly hatches encouraging the trout to rise freely to the fly.
Our lake is an ideal venue for learning to fly fish and we offer fishing lessons & fishing experiences for beginners, the more advanced & groups from £40 per hour. Our tackle room provides everything you need to fish at Blakewell; you can hire or buy all the fly fishing tackle you need from us.

Blakewell Smoke House
We use high quality Scottish salmon & rainbow trout reared on our farm in the Blakewell valley. We then smoke the fish to produce fine rich cuts of hot & cold smoked trout and salmon.
We cure & smoke our fish slowly, it's a method which gives us huge job satisfaction & we take great interest and pride in our finished smoked produce, from cool clear waters to your plate.
We use oak and beach wood chips to hot and cold smoke our fish based on ancient methods of curing.
All our smoked salmon and trout products are available to purchase by mail order or from our smokehouse shop here at Blakewell.
We are delighted to supply a number of outlets and deliver country wide to customers selling high quality products through their pubs, restaurants and delicatessens.
