This cottage is exactly as it looks in the advert. Not a speck of dust, clean quaint and friendly. Everything you could think you need is supplied. (even a pair od scissors to open the coffee pkts). Breakfast is the best, tasty and nothing seems to be any trouble. The village is so pretty and you are about a mile... More

Lovely B&B. Greeted with large slice of homemade cake. Great breakfast. Very comfortable bed, large shower room but no bath. Very convenient location for exploring Chatsworth & surrounding area. Pub across the road & Chatsworth farm shop less than 5 mins walk. Would stay again.

We have now lost count of the number of times we have stayed at Holly Cottage. We love the location, the cosy feel of the place, the decor, the quality of the breakfasts and the friendliness of the owners. Have already booked weekend stay for next year.

Sarah and Mark were perfect hosts, courtesy, friendly and helpful. The Blue Room, although no longer blue, was excellent, large with a huge bathroom by typical B&B standards and with an excellent shower. Everything was immaculate and extremely clean. The assortment of breakfast items was great and the cooked breakfasts were even better. The location in the small village of... More

lovely homely little B&B - clean, modern, good quality fixtures and fittings. Good quality breakfast. Helpful host but not overbearing (as can sometimes be the case). quiet village - perfect for a weekend visit to Chatsworth. Pub in village is nicest we found in the area. In summary - excellent. Couldn't be faulted and a good price too.

Twice I've showed up at Sarah's door sans reservations – and both times, graciously and kindly, she welcomed us/me to her lovely B&B! Sarah graciously offers: genuinely friendly welcome(s); lovely, lush, modern accommodation in an historic property; delicious breakfast with convivial service and company; and much, much more. Sarah's B&B truly felt like HOME ... and I was (literally) 'homesick'... More

We arrived at Holly Cottage on a Friday afternoon, really looking forward to our stay and were not disappointed. Holly Cottage was immaculately clean (as a former B & B owner, this is one of my pet peeves and I am constantly on the look out!), particularly the bathroom. The bed was comfortable, the room was very well equipped. It... More

Holly Cottage is a really beautiful place to stay. The rooms are spotless and Sarah thinks of everything and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is amazing. Also Sarah's homemade brownies are the best!!! If your looking for a home from home B&B then please stay here you really won't be disappointed.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in the Peaks at Pilsley's Holly Cottage B&B. Lovely spacious room with a very comfortable bed, lovely en-suite and a delicious freshly cooked breakfast. A fabulous place to explore the surrounding area. We will considering staying again and would definitely recommend to family and friends.
