Group of six of us arrived late in the evening after cycling from London. Immediately made to feel at home by the delightful owner. After visiting the excellent Coach & Horses a mile away for supper we were able to lock our bikes safely in the house. Rooms simple but very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was substantial and delicious, including... More

Stayed here with some friends during a cycle ride to Paris. Arrived exhausted but after dinner at the local pub, we received a very warm welcome at Holly House and slept extremely well in comfortable beds in pleasant rooms. Breakfast was a veritable feast. The house is a quirky old cottage set in delightful grounds. The owner is delightful.

It is almost worth staying at Holly House for the home-made marmalade. The bacon and the gardens are outstanding as well, but so is everything else: clean, comfortable rooms, a warm welcome, a superb breakfast and a delightful hostess. This is one of the most refreshing places at which I have ever stayed. Try it.

On a cold night in February we stayed in Holly House to be near Gatwick airport before taking a flight to Antigua in the morning. We were made very welcome and given a charming and comfortably warm room. We were recommended the nearby Coach and Horses pub for our evening meal and after a good and very reasonably priced supper... More

Once upon a time .... - well, at least, that is many years ago - we picked up this address from "The Nationwide Little Green Book for B&Bs" because we had been seduced by the romantic view of a typical English period cottage and the (advertised) great breakfasts to be served in the conservatory... As Julius Caesar would (or rather... More

I stayed at Holly House on my own while working at the nearby cat's protection, and I felt like I was on holiday! I was treated to a wonderful cooked breakfast of my choice early in the morning before I had to leave for work, in a really pretty conservatory. The hosts were very accomodating and welcoming, and were very... More

We visit relatives in the Chelwood Gate area every year. We stay with Dee Keith for ten days at a time .Our holidays start as soon as we ring the front doorbell. We start with a talk over our welcome cup of tea. Our room is great. The mirrors tell their own story . We can't believe that we can... More

Do you hate those dreadful little packets of butter and sticky packets of marmalade? Well, you won’t find them at Holly House. You will have a pat of butter on a plate and a bowl of wonderful home-made marmalade. Add to that the most delicious bacon you have ever tasted, egg, home-grown tomatoes in season, sausages and the rest and... More

Holly House is a veritable gem amongst B&B's. Dee makes you so welcome that it is almost like coming home after a long absence, with the offer of refreshments after a few moments in the house. The bedrooms are warm comfortable and beautifully appointed. En-suite faclites in every room are just what one would expect at this establishment. Breakfast, in... More

Lots of pluses - a friendly welcoming hostess and her husband, a lovely period cottage with a well appointed room with plenty of storage space and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was rather small but had a nice efficient power shower and nice large fluffy towels. Our room had a view over their huge 1-acre garden with mature trees and... More
