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.

Thank you taking the time to leave a review, however, as we were totally unaware of any issues until you handed over a letter as you were leaving we had no chance to rectify any of the perceived problems.It was a shame that you did not contact us immediately especially as our front door is only a few yards away, you had all the contact details in the cottage in case we were not at home and we would have moved you all into Rose Barn straight away.We are sorry that the fridge freezer developed a fault and have ordered a replacement, mattresses are a matter of personal taste but they are renewed on a regular basis.We take on board about the lighting, all the cottages have outside lights that come on automatically but we have now provided each cottage with a torch as well.
