“" Ideal Cottage, Ideal Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2012

Once again we had a lovely stopover stay at Middle Holly and were greeted as always by the very best of welcoming hosts, Hilary and Ian.
Their accommodation is outstandingly comfortable and updates and improvements have been ongoing since we first stayed some 8years ago. Breakfast is a delight, all prepared with a personal touch. Although in the country, an excellent Italian restaurant and a good pub are only a short stroll away.
In the past we have stayed at the Cottage with family, as well as on our own journey breaks. Everyone being delighted with the quality and care afforded.
Hopefully we will have many more opportunites to enjoy this very special place.

What a little hidden gem this is! A lovely welcome from Hilary and Ian was a great start to an excellent stay.

We were lucky enough to have the converted outhouse “Barn” room which, although separate to the main house, offered sumptuous accommodation, a warm shower, and a good night’s sleep.

Breakfast was delicious with a wide selection of cooked options, fruit juices and cereals. We settled for the cooked options, which were of a very high quality and expertly cooked.

Perfectly placed for the M6, this B+B is the perfect example of why more and more of us are shunning the boring, repetitive, impersonal hotels.

Thoroughly recommended and we will return!

My golfing friends and I stayed here again this year on three different occasions. It is the third year we have stayed when golfing in the area. Everything about Middle Holly Cottage (as always) was first class. If you are looking for somewhere special to stay in the area, look no further. You have found it!

Stayed here for one night on our way down south and were delighted with all aspects of our stay. A very warm welcome , beautiful clean rooms and an excellent freshly cooked breakfast in the morning. It was so good that we tried to book for our return trip but unfortunately no rooms avaiable. Will not hesitate to recommend to others and will certainly book again in the future. Hilary and Ian were perfect hosts and the guest house had a very warm friendly ambiance.

Stayed during second week of July. Just myself this time. Have not been in the area for approx 2 years but Ian and Hilary have kept up the '5 star' standard they have always provided when staying there before. Ideal resting place for those parents who have there 'dear little ones' at Lancaster uni and wish to visit them. If you do not wish to visit your 'dear little ones' then stay at Middle Holly anyway and enjoy yourself. Look forward to the next time I am in the area.

We stayed here to go to the birthday party of a friend who is lucky enough to live within walking distance of this delightful place. Ian gave us a warm and friendly welcome to what is a stylish, cosy and perfectly clean establishment, decorated and equipped with extreme thoughtfulness and attention to detail. They are clearly perfectionists! The lovely feeling was repeated in the morning with a delightful breakfast served by Hilary - and well cooked by Ian - in the warm and friendly dining room. I would definitel recommend the salmon and scrambled eggs - laid by the hens in the garden and wonderfully fresh and well cooked! The glimpse of the kitchen was impressive - they have nothing to hide and everything looks clean and stylish. I hope we have reason to visit this area again as I would stay here again without hesitation. It is a diamond.
