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.

Holly cottage is a well run, very nice bed and breakfast establishment in pilsley, which is about an hours walk through the countryside to chatsworth house. The double room we stayed in was equipped to a very high standard, a big comfy bed and large bathroom with shower, quality bed linen and towels, with an array of tea, coffee, hot... More

Ignore the 1 poor review, it sounds very suspicious and just consider all the glowing ones! My girlfriend and I stayed at Holly Cottage for Valentine's Day today. The room was clean and atmospheric. Sarah was extremely helpful and friendly and a great host. Her breakfasts using local ingredients, meat and bread are some of the best you can eat... More

Thank you Sarah for making my walking trip complete. A home away from home and in an ideal location for enjoying everything the Peak district has to offer. It was just perfect. I'll be back again for the fantastic home made marmalade. Mike.

Having had couple of disappointing breaks away earlier this year in other parts of the country, and convinced that all B & B's seem to have shares in the company 'Exaggerated Photos and Dodgy Advertising.com', it was with some trepidation that my friend and I arrived at Holly Cottage for our stay.

We had seen Holly Cottage a couple of years ago when my Mum and I visited Chatsworth. So, when we decided to re-visit, we booked and we were not disappointed. We were informed by emails in advance that the twin room is small. Yes, it is but to be honest, we pretty much just slept in the room as were... More
