I have stayed at your cottages and they are very nice and would recommend them to anyone. I did fish the stretch in front of the cottages, which is very good. Would you be able to show us by either a map, photo of the stretch you have purchased. I did walk well upstream of the cottages, and past symonds yat rock, and it looks excellent.I may be able to assist on the issue of Mainoaks fishing, as I am the owner of the cottages in question. PAAS do indeed own the fishing rights immediately opposite the cottages.
However, about 18-months ago we purchased a beautiful (and for many years unfished) stretch of the river wye about 1-mile upstream (on the opposite bank) of the cottages.
This fishing is provided FREE of charge for all guests staying at Mainoaks. To access it, if you're fit, you walk along the footpath on the opposite bank. If you're kitted-up, its a 5-min drive with parking, next to where the stretch starts. You can also fish at night.
There we have it: over 1,900 yards of prime untouched fishing, just waiting to be explored. So get your rods out!! Holiday Cottages, Holiday Rental, Self catering cottage - Mainoaks Cottages
