Fishing Holidays & Fishing Breaks In The UK

Docklow Pools fishing holidays offer a quiet beautiful fishery set in tranquility of 110 acres of countryside in the north of Herefordshire, near the borders of Shropshire & Worcestershire. The perfect setting for fishing holidays and possibly the oldest if not the most handsome venue of its kind in the UK. We’ve been operating since 1972.
