Description
Located close to the village green in the historic conservation village of Breedon-on-the-Hill, the Hollybush Inn traces its origins back to the 17th Century. In the heart of the village, the pub is a protected Grade ll listed timber framed building which still holds its original charm. For anyone that hasn't been, the village is dominated by Breedon Hill, the site of an Iron Age period hill fort which is now home to the distinctive local landmark church of St. Mary and St. Hardulph. There are lots of lovely walks around this area including a circular walk up to the church from the pub where you will be treated to an amazing view of the surrounding countryside. We offer a friendly relaxed atmosphere and children are welcome. Dogs are welcome in the bar and we have free WIFI . . just ask for the password.
