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.

I am saddened that you did not bring these points to our attention as we could have supplied addtional umbrellas around the pool. There are permanent shaded areas which clients usually use if they wish to not be in direct sun. The life ring is located on the wall beside the BBQ next to the pool, this is quite visable and again could have been pointed out if asked.
