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.
