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

I am just going to echo all the positives about Sarah's hospitality at Holly Cottage. The Blue Room is delightful with the most wonderfully comfortable kingsize bed. 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 !!!

My daughter and I spent two nights at Holly Cottage while visiting Chatsworth and the surrounding area. Sarah and Mark are a lovely couple who keep a lovely house. We had the smallest room in the place with 2 single beds. It was cosy and spotlessly clean, with a view over the back garden. Our stay was peaceful, and the... More

Thanks so much for leaving a review of your recent stay with us, we are so pleased the you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately, the twin is the smallest room in the cottage and we would so love to be able to make it bigger, but the character makes up for it! Thanks again and best wishes Sarah More

This is a very welcoming and friendly B&B, ideally placed for a visit to Chatsworth or popular parts of the Peak District. It's run by Sarah and Mark, who also run the village shop and post office. We were offered a lovely sponge cake on arrival, one of many nice touches (including bottled water in the room and the gift... More

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.
