“Long Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

My three sisters and I stayed here while attending a party in the area. This is a very welcoming house with comfortable beds and beautiful decoration. Jane is a most friendly woman and provides a great breakfast using local produce and even fruit from her own garden.She did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Will definitely stay there again. There is even a park two minute walk away with an outdoor gym.

A very good couple of nights during which we were looked after in a very friendly and generous way. Jane is an excellent, confident cook, and the delicious food is served with great aplomb. Breakfast is first class, and I only wish we had eaten in both evenings, instead of only one. The room was spotlessly clean, and Jane couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable.

My new husband and I stayed here for one night after our wedding. We were made to feel welcome immediately with flowers and lavender in the room. it all made it so much more special. Jane could not do enough for us. We watched the sun rise from this beautifully set location after a perfect night's sleep. In the morning, the brilliant and delicious breakfast was served with homemade and locally sourced produce.
We have no hesitation in recommending Holly house, and will be spending our first wedding anniversary there, or much sooner if we can manage it. So thank you Jane, anyone who stays with you could not help but enjoy it.

My parents, partner and I stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding over the bank holiday. We were made to feel welcome immediately, offered tea and cake in the lounge on arrival. Jane showed an interest in who we were and why we were staying without being overbearing. She was very flexible about breakfast timings etc. The house is immaculate and rooms very comfortable.We were encouraged to ask for anything we needed, but didn't have to as everything was supplied. Very clean, lovely breakfasts and a charming host. We will recommend to our friends.

Beautiful setting, lovely atmosphere, very welcoming. Fabulous. Attended wedding in local church and nearby reception. Very easy to find. Jane was very welcoming and interesting, even gave us a lift to collect our car in the morning.

Room Tip: Room overlooking garden was very peaceful.

We recently spent 6 nights at Holly House and what an enjoyable time we had.. Jane the owner could not be more helpful, nothing was too much trouble and she was always able to recommend places to visit and routes to take. . Her breakfasts were delicious with mostly all homemade or local produce, even warm homemade bread every morning.
The rooms were spotless and tastefully decorated and a very comfortable bed and even a chocolate by the bed each night.
We would not hesitate to recommend Holly House to anyone and look forward to returning ourselves sometime "

Thank you Peter. It was a pleasure to look after you and Edwina for the 6 days. I hope to see you again, if only for a cup of tea, as you pass this way when visiting family.
