Would I stay again and would I recommend to a friend? Yes, on both counts. The only downside is that, although the address is Preston, it seemed closer to Lancaster. Good recommendations for an evening meal approx. 1/2 mile walk. Good breakfast.

This was just what we needed to break our journey driving from Inverness to London. Easily accessible from Motorway, parking easy, room quiet. The room was comfortable - everything just right. Mega breakfast was very good (you don't need to have everything. My partner left a few items out of the fried feast). The hosts very accommodating and friendly but... More

Middle Holly cottage is easily reached from M6, lots of off road parking, excellent stopover as we travelled south. Comfortable room, peaceful location, beautiful garden and tasty breakfast made our short stay a happy one.

My wife and I stayed at Middle Holly last summer and just loved it. The folks made us so welcome, and I must say it was the best farmer's breakfast I've enjoyed in a long time. It was a delightful few days while we visited with my aunt nearby.

Middle Holly Cottage is a great location for visiting our family north of Preston, Lancashire. Lovely house, great hosts, excellent breakfasts (my wife says thank you for the scrambled eggs and I say likewise for the sausages)

We were welcomed by Ian into his well appointed and delightful home after we had endured a tortuous journey from the West Country. We had arranged this half-way stopover en route to a weeks holiday in Scotland. Our room was so comfortably furnished with those extra touches - a plate of fruit, a small of water and a bottle of...

We had a wonderful overnight stay here. We were impressed from the start by the welcome and the overall neatness and tidiness as we walked through the door. Once in the room, first impressions were confirmed, and the comfort factor was there to see .Everything was in place, including thoughtful touches like fresh milk and bottled water in a mini... More

Just can't stop away from what I consider the best B&B in the UK. Having stayed in other accommodation this is so superior. Hilary & Ian are excellent hosts. The breakfast, I consider the best I have ever had. Try the Bury Black Pudding!!!
