Set in the midst of the beautiful Blackdown hills, in a secluded hidden valley surrounded by woodlands containing a rich variety of wildlife. We are open all year round from dawn to dusk offering fresh fish, gourmet fish products and most importantly superb fly fishing.

Fly Fishing, Tuition and Tackle Hire

Fly fishing is available on two lakes and pool offering over two and a half acres of water with depths to fourteen feet. This provides a variety of challenges for anglers of all skills. Stocking levels are carefully monitored throughout the year to ensure a great fishing experience. Our fish are kept in excellent condition and have a deserved reputation for their fighting qualities and flavour. The lakes are stocked with with fish from one and three quarter pounds up into double figures.

A full range of fishing options is offered, from taster tuition sessions, through accompanied fishing to full corporate days. There is a well stocked tackle shop on site.


Please note we close the fishery at 7pm to give privacy to those holidaymakers staying on site.


We produce a range of food products from our own trout, including fresh fish, smoked trout and pate. These products can be bought on site or through a number of farmers markets and farmshops. You may also find yourself eating Hollies trout in local pubs and restaurants. Any trout fish caught in the lakes can be prepared to order.


Access to the lake is easy and the good-sized car park is close to the lake providing easy access for the elderly or disabled. There are benches at favoured fishing spots, with toilets close by.

Our log cabins sleep up to four with a well equipped kitchen, shower room and log burner. You can enjoy the peaceful environment, a family barbeque or use the cabin as a base for exploring.
