I would definitely recommend this B&B, Sue is very friendly, helpful and kind hearted. Her breakfasts are huge ,I'm a big lad and let me tell you I could not finish it all off. The room was exceptionally tidy in fact immaculate, not a bit tatty. Both my wife and I will definitely return :)

Pilsley is a beautiful village, the Holly cottage B&B is adjoined to the village Post Office and both are run by the same people so we felt it was lacking the personal touch with hosting as they were so busy, but the room was clean and comfortable, and all the single serving sachets you could wish for and more, very...

We stayed for three days in the large double room (Blue room) with a VERY spacious en suite. Everything was thought of and we wanted for nothing. The breakfasts were fresh, delicious and plentiful. We will definitely return and I certainly recommend this Bed and Breakfast accommodation.

Spent 2 nights here - Pilsley is a really lovely place, and the B and B makes a fantastic base for touring the Peaks - Chatsworth is on the doorstep, as is the gorgeous Monsal Trail and loads of other lovely places to visit in the Peaks. What was great, and what we didn't realise until breakfast on the first... More

Thanks so much for your review, delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We have had a water leak in the village this week, you may have noticed the water running down the road,which has caused a reduction in pressure which may have caused the shower issue. We do offer tickets to Chatsworth, unfortunately, it is not included in the room... More

The room is very well equipped. - even a little pair of scissors to help open those sometimes stubborn teabag foils. So thoughtful; The breakfast is delicious and made with all local produce....

What a lovely Bed and Breakfast. Sarah, the proprietor, was very welcoming and cooks a fantastic breakfast! The room was clean and very comfortable. We stayed in the Green Room, which is at the front of the property, but can envisage all rooms being kept to this high standard. A very picturesque location; ideal for visiting the surrounding tourist attractions... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Holly Cottage. On arrival Sarah was very welcoming and offered me a piece of cake - which although I wasn't really hungry, I couldn't refuse ;-) - and I was glad I hadn't because it was delicious. My room (the blue room which is no longer blue) was lovely, as was the ensuite -... More

My husband and I stayed at Holly Cottage 7 nights out of the 17 we were in England. Now that our trip is over we wished we would have stayed all 17 there. Just a neat place. We stayed in the large bedroom and it was always clean. Sarah is very organized and professional. It was cool that she ran... More

We only stayed one night, to enable us to visit Chatsworth on our way south from Scotland. In spite of difficulties with her car breaking down, Sarah made sure there was someone to welcome us. We were offered sponge cake, but as we'd just had afternoon tea at Chatsworth, we declined. Sarah instead organised for us to take a piece... More

Another year, another cricket tour and yet again a superb stay at Holly Cottage. Hospitality tray in bedrooms puts hotels to shame. Sarah is always the perfect host and her cooked breakfasts set you up for the day !!! We'll be back !!!

Holly Cottage is a wonderfully located 17th century cottage at the heart of the Chatsworth Estate in the glorious peak of Derbyshire, one mile from Chatsworth House and two miles from Bakewell. We have three well furnished, spotlessly clean bedrooms all with en suite shower rooms. Rooms have colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities, radio alarm clocks and individually controlled central heating radiators.
