This was our first time at a B&B. We were given a gift certificate and I wanted to find a place close to where I grew up. Holly Cottage is beautiful, as are the hosts Dave and Norma Collis. They were friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. The house is warm and inviting, filled with sunlight, surrounded by gardens, finches, swallows, and... More

My husband had never been to a B&B before and was pleasantly surprised at the hospitality, atmosphere and overall stay at Holly Cottage. Norma and Dave were very accomodating as we were travelling with a 5 month old infant. We stayed in the original part of the house upstairs. The room was spacious, the bathroom was gorgeous with a soaker... More

I wanted to surprise my boyfriend for our 2yrs. anniversary of going together, so I booked a night(July 8th) at Holly Cottage. We had never been to a B& B before so I really didn't know what to expect. The Host Norma and Dave( well Dave was out of town) were just so accommodating to our every need. It was... More

Spent two nights in the fireplace room during my second enjoyable stay at Holly Cottage. Holly Cottage is an excellent accommodation for hikers trekking through the Sydenham section of the Bruce Trail. Last year I fully reviewed Holly Cottage, giving it a 5 out 5. No change at all this time around! Dave and Norma are truly wonderful people -... More

We recently stayed 9 nights while we hiked the BruceTrail for 8 consecutive days. We chose Holly Cottage because of their hikers package including shuttle service and daily lunch. This service was excellent and allowed us to enjoy the hiking experience without logistical issues. Overall hospitality extended by Norma and David was gracious and welcoming from the outset. The B&B... More

Consummate hosts, Norma and Dave made my recent stay a real pleasure. The bonus is their wonderful hiker's package which includes drop-off to your start point (great for Bruce Trail hikers especially) and a super lunch. The house is beautiful and lovingly maintained. Breakfast was fabulous. Norma and Dave treat you as friends - not guests and really look after... More

Wonderful "visit" as opposed to a "stay". Great people, comfortable quarters. I'm not a breakfast eater but enjoyed it immensely. If you go, take the time to share a glass of wine and chat with these wonderfully engaging people.

Holly cottage came highly recommended and certainly showed why. Dave and Norma are very engaging and accommodating. A beautiful country location and a warm inviting home. Comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast was second to none. We will be back.

My husband and I stayed over the Easter weekend for 1 night, we were celebrating our 2nd anniversary and visiting family in Meaford. We really enjoyed our time there, beautiful huge house with so many little trinkets and vintage pieces to look at and admire. We loved our spacious room and especially the jetted tub and shower at night before... More

This was a very friendly and comfortable B&B. David and Norma were very welcoming. The breakfasts were delicious and having coffee delivered to my room every morning was a real treat. David also offered to drive me to the Bognor Marsh trailhead so that I could do a longer hike. The Bruce Trail goes right by the cottage and the... More
