Carp & Coarse Fishing in the Exe Valley, Devon & Somerset

After much thought we have decided not to reopen the fishery for Trout fishing for the foreseeable future. However we have stocked the largest lake, Ironmill, with very high quality carp from Lana Springs Fish Farm. We plan to open for our holiday residents at the beginning of June and will opening for Day Tickets shortly after. For more information please call 07967 335159.

Please see our News section for an update on changes to pricing, payment options and the need to book as these were changed on the 27th July 2021.

Bellbrook has always been known for its great fly-fishing and trout fishing, but it is also known as one of the prettiest fisheries in the country. For the past few years it has been rated in the top 30 out of 500 UK fisheries by the country's leading Trout fishing publication Trout Fisherman. It is set in its own 40-acre valley in Exe Valley between Devon and Somerset with an abundance of wildlife, including deer, badgers, foxes, rabbits and buzzards as well as many wild and rare flowers and plants. It provides a heavenly setting in which to “re-charge one’s batteries” and is known for its superb trout fishing with peace and tranquillity.
