If there is a best-kept secret location in North Devon that is peaceful, picturesque and with something the whole family can enjoy, then it has to be Blakewell Trout Farm near Barnstaple.

Just off the main road from Muddiford on the approach to Barnstaple, the delights of Blakewell are well hidden until the visitor turns off the beaten track and discovers, nestled in the valley, a tranquil water-dappled landscape of ponds, lakes and a waterside tea room.

Entry is completely free and everyone is welcome to call in seven days of the week to look around and discover Blakewell.

The fish farm has a great deal to offer, and not only for the dedicated game angler – feed the ever-hungry trout and find out how they are reared, catch your supper in the family fishing pond or simply enjoy a stunning place to walk and relax.
