A Rich Heritage

Our Story

The Longmeadow estate farms have a rich and storied history. Dating back to before the late 1960s these three farms and their iconic trout waters were strictly private and traditionally for the exclusive use of Anglo American company directors and senior management.

This meant infrequent visits, leading to super-low rod pressure and water of exceptional quality. With the unique combination of pristine water supply, dedicated management and staff and virtually zero rod pressure, these waters have produced stunning fish over the years.

Not too long ago, David Abery and Jonathan Boulton bought the farms and set about transforming the properties into exclusive, private country getaways. At this time we are only making Trout Valley available for self-catering rentals, although the whole Longmeadow estate can be explored by guests at request.
