“A beautiful family home!”
Reviewed 19 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Just back from a fantastic stay at Hollybank House. My whole family, all 12 of us spent our half term week at this wonderful house in the lovely town of Ashbourne. I can tell you, we were not disappointed with anything during our stay. If you want a well equipped property to rent, this is the one. The owners went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. From entering the property we were greeted by a wonderful hamper of goodies for our stay. My 3 Grandchildren each received tailored presents to suit their age. ( thank you so much). You could not ask for more throughout the toasty warm house with every need catered for. We were all truly delighted with our stay. Although it was February, we made great use of the Summer house, all becomming great darts players! If it had been Summer, we would have been spoilt for choice with the outdoor play equipment in the lovely garden. We really did think about having a BBQ! Thank you Diana and Jo for letting us stay and have a truly wonderful family holiday at your house. If you are thinking of booking Hollybank House. Do it!

“Cosy and comfortable house”
Reviewed 30 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Hollybank House is a great place to stay. Just a few minutes walk from the centre of Ashbourne, the house is well equipped and there are some great additional touches that really make a difference - the luxury bed linen, the lovely welcome pack, and the well equipped leisure and games room. Jo and Diana could not do more to make you feel welcome - they are friendly and helpful and their gifts for the children were greatly appreciated. Thank you, Jo and Diana - a real home from home!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Hollybank House for our family reunion. Attention to detail was outstanding. The house was so well equipped and the information provided so extensive we felt relaxed from the moment we arrived.Our grandchildren were delighted with their gifts- so thoughtful and generous. The welcome hamper provided was amazing. A big thank you to Jo and Diana from all our family.

“Fabulous family house”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

As regular holiday rental customers we were delighted with the spec and added touches provided by Jo and Diana. We were an extended family group of 11, celebrating my Dad's 80th birthday. The house is well equipped in every department. The extra touches such as tea/coffee etc, fans, heaters and hairdryers in every room were brilliant. The unexpected touches like the hamper and gifts for everyone were above and beyond. Thank you so much for making us so welcome and making a special weekend even more special.
Ashbourne itself is a lovely town and when we could tear ourselves away from the house ther were lovely shops, pubs etc to explore.
Thanks again Jo and Diana for letting us borrow your lovely house.

Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

An incredibly well appointed house just a short walk from the centre of Ashbourne. Each room has its own tea and coffee making facilities, bath robes, and super comfy beds. The cabin and the top of the garden was a great surprise which again was bursting with equipment; lots of garden games, fridge freezer and BBQ stuff. The house has plenty of toys for children, books, games, local information and freeview. The welcome gifts and information prior to arriving were so thoughtful.
The house and garden were Immaculate, cosy, and spacious.
I would not hesitate to recommend Hollybank to a group of friends or family. We had a magical week staying there exploring the local area. Would love to return.

The location is perfect, near to the town centre and only a short drive to the many attractions of the Derbyshire Dales. We arrived to a welcome hamper, gifts for the children, a stocked wine rack and even treats for the dog.
The house is so well equipped and the Chalet and BBQ area proved perfect for our 80th birthday celebration.
We really felt like valued guests - thank you Jo and Dianna - you thought of everything to make our stay really comfortable.

“Wonderful Weekend”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

9 of us and a dog met here for my mum's 80th birthday weekend. What a wonderful house. Very well equipped. Lovely welcome hamper. Very helpful and friendly owners. The summer house and patio was fantastic. We ate out on the patio all weekend. Lots of games - including darts to keep the children amused and there is a park 5 minutes away which was great for walking the dog. All in all brilliant - thank you.
