Excellent B+B. We were well looked after and rooms were very comfortable. The food was excellent and the view from the garden was great. The village pub was a few minutes walk and did good pub food. Enjoyed our trip to Threlkeld along the C2C.

Just returned from a weekend staying at The Hollies, have no negatives. Welcoming hosts, good food, good size room & comfy bed. It is in a good location for walkers or drivers just about 5miles from Keswick and 30 mins from Ulswater. There is a couple of pubs in village that are within walking distance from The Hollies.

This B&B is just fabulous; large rooms, beautifully comfortable beds, one of the best breakfasts we've ever had (and we've had a lot) because of the top quality ingredients and the excellent cooking. Even the tea bags are top notch. It was our best B&B on our 8 day trip by a mile and we'd definitely go back again. Oh,... More

We just stayed 2 nights and are so glad we booked here! The house itself is clean and homely and we had a comfy bed which is always a bonus! The views from the bedroom window were gorgeous over looking a well kept tidy garden! We were greeted by the host with a pot of coffee and even offered some... More

We stayed at the Holies for two nights and used the Guest House as a Touring Base. For the price the House is absolutely brilliant! The personal welcome on arrival from the owners and the wonderful 'Lakeland' Breakfast which sets you up for the day make this Guest House just a perfect place to stay when visiting the Lake District....

Tend to stay here once a year in the winter fro a walking weekend, although this time the weather was just too much of driving gusts and rain. The Hollies is in a quiet location and within a 4 minute walk of the Horse & Farrier - take a torch as not street lightling on one section of the road.... More

Lovely quiet village location close to Keswick. Spotless accomodation, lovely breakfast, large Queen sized bed and friendly hosts. We stayed for the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. There are two pubs within a short distance and food can be recommended at both.
