Reviewed December 16, 2013

Middle Holly Cottage is a great location for visiting our family north of Preston, Lancashire. Lovely house, great hosts, excellent breakfasts (my wife says thank you for the scrambled eggs and I say likewise for the sausages)

We were welcomed by Ian into his well appointed and delightful home after we had endured a tortuous journey from the West Country. We had arranged this half-way stopover en route to a weeks holiday in Scotland. Our room was so comfortably furnished with those extra touches - a plate of fruit, a small of water and a bottle of fresh milk in the table-top 'fridge - as well as the usual tea/coffee/chocolate makings and biscuits - to support the weary travellers. After a good nights sleep we experienced "the breakfast of breakfasts" from our lovely hosts, Hilary and Ian, who ensured that our every wish was granted. A week later, on our way back home, we received the same warm and generous welcome to their beautiful Cottage. We felt that departed as friends - is was as if we has known Hilary and Ian for much longer than the two visits, such was their ability to provide their guests with a totally enjoyable experience

Room Tip: All the rooms would be of the very high standard that we enjoyed

We had a wonderful overnight stay here. We were impressed from the start by the welcome and the overall neatness and tidiness as we walked through the door. Once in the room, first impressions were confirmed, and the comfort factor was there to see .Everything was in place, including thoughtful touches like fresh milk and bottled water in a mini fridge to accompany the tea, coffee, biscuits etc.The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom shower was very welcome, with the accompanying toiletries.The cooked breakfast was very tasty, and all the food and drink items were fresh and guaranteed to build you up for the onward journey. We wouldn't hesitate to revisit and would highly recommend Middle Holly to those passing through or those visiting the area.

Just can't stop away from what I consider the best B&B in the UK.
Having stayed in other accommodation this is so superior.
Hilary & Ian are excellent hosts.
The breakfast, I consider the best I have ever had. Try the Bury Black Pudding!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

My stay at Middle Holly Cottage last evening was booked at the last minute and arriving late on Sunday evening, I was greeted by a warm welcome from the proprietors. The room was well appointed, warm, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and had all the facilities I needed.
Following a good night's sleep in a quiet room appointed with a comfortable bed, I enjoyed a delicious English breakfast of freshly cooked local produce. Great value, superb!

Had a fantastic stay on our way south from Mull. We were made to feel very welcome after our long drive from Oban. The room was excellent- particularly the bed. Breakfast was absolutely superb. Highly recommend it.
