Previous visitors' comments about The Fishing Bothy:
We really enjoyed our stay at The Fishing Bothy. The cottage offers scenic river views and a comfortably homely atmosphere.
Mr Rosen, Mount Pleasant, May 2013
We enjoyed the remote location, privacy and quiet surroundings.
Mr Vickers, Mitcham, February 2013
The location was beautiful and sound of the river was an added bonus. We had food delivered from an on line order and found this to be very useful to encourage a more relaxing holiday. The record collection and record player was a nice escape from regular television watching. Lovely pubs around, especially the Sunday lunch at The Robin Hood. The fireplace was lovely and we mainly used this room as it was warmest. Nice walks a available from the doorstep.
