Christine and John were really helpful in looking after us after a mountain bike adventure. Lovely room, very comfortable and huge bed, delicious breakfast and really attentive. Excellent recommendation at local pub for an evening meal. Beautiful garden and lovely separate guest lounge. Thanks!

We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Christine and John are so welcoming and looked after us fantastically. The house and gardens are beautiful and it is splendid to be able to wander in the garden & have the use of the guest sitting room. The breakfast was superb and a real feast. The bedrooms... More

A beautifully appointed period house, with everything you could want. Christine and John are very friendly, gracious hosts and made us very welcome. Delicious breakfast with an extensive choice. Nothing was too much trouble. On arrival we were welcomed with tea and cake, eaten in a lovely garden. This is a gem of a B&B and we will definitely be... More

Christine and John could hardly have made us more welcome if we were long-lost relatives! We stayed in the en-suite room which was lovely, and a tremendous amount of thought had gone into everything we might need. Standard B&B equipment was present: TV, tea and coffee making facilities (but several types of each!), but also wi-fi, guides to local attractions,... More

We so much enjoyed our stay here and Christine and John have pitched it just right: a warm and friendly welcome but not overbearing; a house which is immaculately kept and full of lovely antiques but where you feel free to relax and enjoy it all. We loved the little guest lounge which looks onto the garden - if Christine... More

From start to finish we had a wonderful break. Holly Croft is a beautiful house, immaculately clean and definitely worthy of its 5 star rating. The double room with separate bathroom is lovely. The attention to detail is what makes this worthy of every penny. It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into furnishing this house with... More

Stayed at Holly Croft for four nights in July. Mum and daughter break away. Beautiful house, immaculately clean and presented. Everything considered even down to cotton wool just incase you forgot! Stunning garden and even a snooker room that guests can make use of. The double bedroom has a private bathroom just two steps across the landing - the owners... More
