We booked a 3 night stay at Hollybank House for a family get together and our only regret was that we didn't book for longer!

The property is truly magnificent and so well equipped. The house, garden and chalet were all cleaned, pruned and presented to an impeccable standard for our arrival. All appliances were in excellent condition, there was always hot water and literally everything we needed was provided. All you need to bring when visiting this property is yourselves and food - unless you plan to eat out at the excellent local establishments.

We made use of the fantastic BBQ two nights running and were lucky enough to be able to sit out on the terrace the second night. The games provided (indoor and outdoor) provided us with hours of entertainment, however we did still manage to find time to visit the town and nearby Carsington Water - both of which we highly recommend! The local butcher (George Peach) had quality produce - great for our BBQ's.

The owners of Hollybank offer fantastic customer service, they were a pleasure to deal with when arranging the booking; the welcome hamper and personal touches on our arrival were the icing on the cake! Genuinely could not recommend this property more highly!!

“The house with everything, inc. a great location”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our family group of 10 adults and 2 small boys loved Hollybank - a spacious warm family house with plenty of parking, well appointed bathrooms, local artwork and photos. The lovely owners have thought of everything including wi-fi, a welcome hamper, dressing gowns and tea trays; indoor and outdoor games and toys, a large garden chalet and terrace for dining; plus a herb garden and top top notch barbecue. Just 5mins walk from Hollybank is memorial park complete with an interactive splash area in the playground, and a lovely cafe over the road - Bettys, in the old library. The numerous shops, delis and cafes are a a few mins walk from Hollybank, and six of us enjoyed good food at the Lamplight restaurant. A day out at Crich Tramway village, 30 mins drive from Hollybank, was enjoyed by all ages.

“Wow - great place”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Thank you for the use of Hollybank House for our son's 30th BD celebrations. An excellent choice by Vicki. Can thoroughly recommend in every respect. We tried to find something that was missing and failed miserably. The house is very, very well equipped. All the rooms had an elegance and super ambiance and it was perfect for the total of 13 guests. We didn't feel like we were tripping over anybody. Good off road parking. Pity it rained heavily on Saturday and stopped us using the super cabin and BBQ.

“A wonderful stay”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a lovely weekend at holly bank house in May. The house was very well equipped and Ron and Jo left a lovely hamper of goodies for the adults and bags of chocolates for the children. The house was well positioned for easy access into the town. Ron and Jo couldn't have been more helpful with information and they made us feel very welcome. The garden and chalet were great and we spent the evenings sitting on the terrace whilst the kids played the many games in the garden. We would recommend the house for anyone visiting the town.

“Couldn't wish for a better stay'”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Booked Hollybank house for a 30th birthday get together of thirteen friends and family,
I cannot say how happy we were with our stay! It was more than we could have hoped for - Very well appointed, beautiful venue, stocked with everything you could ever need. So well placed for Ashbourne and near to Carsington Water for a nice day out. The owners were extremely helpful, communicative and very generous leaving us a lovely arrival hamper. Robes in each room along with tea making facilities in the rooms were a lovely touch. Plus a great games cupboard! Shame we didn't get to use the fab BBQ facilities thanks to the rain, but that's England for you! Thank you for a perfect weekend.

“Fab weekend!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We booked our stay at holly bank house at short notice after being let down last minute by a different holiday rental. The owners couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating providing excellent communication throughout! The house provided the perfect setting for my sisters hen weekend, beautifully decorated and spotless throughout. There is everything you could possibly need from cleaning products and toilet rolls through to hairdryers and bath robes! The welcome hamper awaiting us upon arrival was the icing on the cake!! A perfect weekend in a perfect setting! We hope to return for a family break in the near future!
