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.

Dear Sue, Thank you for your review which I received via Trip Advisor yesterday I am always heartened to receive constructive and positive reviews such as yours.
Thanks for your comments regarding the French doors as I was unaware of any problem regarding draughts as I had not had comments previously.
This morning I checked the doors and all the draught stripping was in place and the doors fitted tightly to the frame apart from the bottom of the leading door which has moved perhaps 1 or 2mm. away from the frame It was exceptionally windy the weekend you stayed (storm Angus) but nevertheless I shall get the carpenter in to check the problem and hopefully solve it. Kind regards, James Bamford.
