Owner's reply: Thanks for your positive review. Glad the dog liked having a warm tummy. Hope to see you again soon.

“Excellent accomodation”

Reviewed 14 May 2017

Excellent standard of accomodation, everything provided that you needed. Also tea, coffee, milk and chocolate biscuits on arrival. Piping hot water and a very comfortable bed. Very central to visit lots of places in and around Derbyshire. Recommend The Rose and Crown at Middle Mayfield for superb evening meals.

Owner's reply: Pleased that everything was up to scratch Helen. Hope to see you again soon. Regards Michele

“Lovely cottage, quiet location”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2017

We spent 4 nights in this lovely little cottage. It's like home from home and has everything you could possibly need. Great location for visiting Ashbourne, Buxton etc. And lots of lovely areas to walk. Would highly recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. It's heartening to know that you had everything you needed and that you enjoyed your stay. Would love to welcome you back soon.

“Beautiful cottage set in the Derbyshire Dales”

Reviewed 1 Feb 2017

We had a lovely time in this quaint cottage, hiding away from the hussle and bussle of life. The cottage was immaculate and had a lovely feel of old versus new. This was just what the doctor ordered for a romantic couple of days away. Charming area with lovely walks and local pubs.

Owner's reply: Glad you had a good time. See you again soon

“Beautiful cottage”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2016

Had a wonderful time. Cottage was cosy and immaculate with everything you need for two! Great location for walks. Did some beautiful walks during our stay. Local pub was close by. Visited for drinks but didn't eat. It's supposed to be very good but you need to book. They weren't hugely accommodating if you hadn't and wouldn't even let you order bar food (despite having a bar food menu) to eat outside at lunch. A little stuffy and little flexibility which was a shame. All in all a lovely stay and would highly recommend. Make sure if you enjoy walking you look up the best walks. It is definitely worth planning.

Owner's reply: Hi Nikki & Paul. Pleased that you liked the cottage, and enjoyed your stay. Thanks for leaving the walking routes you explored for future guests to enjoy - very thoughtful. Sorry that the pub weren't helpful, which is very unusual; they are normally very accommodating. Leave them a Trip Advisor review ;-)

“Excellent in every way.”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2016

Can't fault Holly Cottage in any way. Excellent. Well-defined and with plenty of space for two. Good and helpful booking and hand-over. Duncombe Arms just five minutes walk is a big asset.

Owner's reply: So pleased that we met your expectations during your week. Welcome back anytime Robert & Chris

“Lovely cottage within a peaceful village”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2016

Holly Cottage is perfect for a peaceful stay in the area. The cottage is spotlessly clean complete with everything you need. We met Michele on arrival who showed us around and recommended the Duncombe Arms (dog friendly), which serves tasty food complete with exceptional service. We enjoyed plenty of walks with our dog and met Michele on one of these and she was kind enough to show us around her farm. Definitely recommend for couples looking for a quiet week away.

Owner's reply: Thanks for sharing your experience of Holly Cottage - so pleased that everything was up to scratch. Hope to see you all again; perhaps when Max's legs have stopped aching?

“Sensational Stay”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2016

It's very difficult to find words to say about Holly Cottage that haven't been said already. We chose Holly Cottage based on the TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed in any way. We were met by Michele who made us very welcome when we arrived. She kindly showed us around and where everything was located and told us about places of interest near by. There were a number of brochures available, which helped us during our weeks stay. The cottage itself is very well appointed and extremely comfortable. The kitchen is on the small size but more than sufficient for two people; I cooked most evenings, including a full roast dinner, everything needed was available. The cottage is ideally located for visiting the Peak District with many interesting places within a short driving distance. The local pub, The Duncombe Arms, is quite charming and provides a good range of drinks and the food is excellent. Reviews can at times mislead you but take it from me you can believe all that you read about Holly Cottage and Michele. Would I recommend it, absolutely! Would I return, definitely.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely recommendation. So glad that you enjoyed your stay, and of course we would be most glad to welcome you back any time.
