“Immaculate cottage, perfect for a couples getaway”
Reviewed January 15, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

First of all the cottage was impeccably presented and on a very quiet lane in Ellastone.

Excellent size for 2 people with a cosy lounge area (under floor heated) and open plan kitchen area. Up stairs the bedroom and bathroom are both beautifully presented and you have a lovely view from the bed down the lane.

Very good pub 5 min walk away - The Duncombe Arms which does great food & has a very relaxed atmosphere.

Michele popped in and is very helpful and accomodating. Would certainly visit again.

Would love to welcome you back any time - maybe next year for Liam's 'big' birthday?? Regards Michele

“Gorgeous little cottage in a great location”
Reviewed January 2, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed in the cottage over new year and it was just perfect for a few days away. The cottage has everything you need and is in a quaint village surrounded by the wonderful peak district. The cottage was very clean and tidy and we were made very welcome upon arrival.

We had an excellent holiday in Ellastone, a beautiful location with lots to do. Michele's knowledge of the area was a great help when deciding where to visit during our stay. The cottage itself was immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would recommend a stay at Holly Cottage to anyone.

“Beautifully presented and ever so cute!”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Holly Cottage for 3 nights whilst visiting the area for business. The house is in a beautiful spot with some excellent places to eat nearby. The house itself is perfect, beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Holly Cottage has everything you could need for a stress free stay. We will definitely be back to this gorgeous part of the country and to lovely little Holly Cottage. Thanks for a great stay.
