We stayed at Middle Holly Cottage for 2 nights in July while visiting friends in Garstang. Very centrally located for Lancaster and close to the M6, if travelling north or south. Beautifully decorated and a very comfortable bed. Hosts Hilary and Ian are very friendly and welcoming. It was nice to have a mini fridge in the room with fresh milk.Hilary does a wonderful job as it is spotlessly clean. Thanks for a lovely stay.

A beautiful cottage, tasteful relaxing decor and a very warm welcome made this a lovely stay. It was so easy to get to Lancaster University in about 10 minutes without the hassle of going through Lancaster traffic. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and nothing seemed too much trouble for Hilary and Ian our hosts. Sitting in the beautiful garden listening to the birds was lovely after a long journey. I would recommend Middle Holly Cottage to any traveller - it s only a few minutes fom the M6 and especially to University parent visitors. I am sad that I only found it at the end of her degree.

We needed somewhere to stay as our usual place had been sold, but when we arrived at Middle Holly Cottage we were glad that our original place was not available.
We received a very warm welcome when we arrived from Hilary and was shown to a lovely room which was a barn conversion, first impression was wow lovely decor and the presentation of everything was second to none and the breakfast well you will have to go and see for yourself.
We have already booked again for next year.

We recently had two rooms at Middle Holly Cottage for one night. The rooms were super clean, also a comfortable size, and the breakfasts very nice. There was ample parking and the garden was lovely. The little things, like a mini-fridge for the fresh milk made the stay more pleasant. The property was easy to find and quite close to the M6. Ian & Hilary are great hosts and we'll almost certainly return.

Can't let this visit go without saying Mid Holly Cottage just keeps on getting better.
Ian and Hilary just make you so welcome.
The rooms are brilliant, latest is a mini fridge to keep your bottle of water and the milk for your tea or coffee cool.
Breakfast is still the best.
Hilary has done a brilliant job painting the stairs etc.
Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. We like the barn.

This was our third stay here. Ian and Hillary were as welcoming as ever, serving their usual high quality breakfast on the way up. On the way home we chose to leave early and tried their take away version which was just as good.
