If you're a keen fisherman, then a week by the river may well be your dream holiday. These holiday homes have all been selected with fishing in mind - private lakes, unlimited fishing, boats, licences and angling tuition are among the attractions.
And if some of your party aren't that keen on fishing, then there's no need to worry. With beautiful countryside and beaches, thriving towns and plenty of home comforts, there's something to make everyone fall hook, line and sinker for these properties.

Many thanks for going out of your way to leave a fantastic review, this is really much appreciated and gives other guests confidence in booking.
The area at the back is nicely secluded and we have young children ourselves who enjoy roaming around there. The playhouse, swing, and slide are always a hit with the children but a BBQ for the grown ups is something we have been considering but not managed to implement in a safe manner....perhaps it will be there the next time you visit!?
Very best wishes,
