Hollies Barn proved to be an ideal venue for Christmas 2013. Our stay was problem free despite the appalling weather being experienced by most of the country. The barn was spotlessly clean, well equipped and warm (important with elderly relatives in residence). The place had been tastefully decorated for Christmas and welcome treats of milk, wine and fruit were gratefully received. We would not hesitate to use Hollies Barn again or to recommend it to others

The accommodation was of a high standard. The underfloor heating was particularly comforting as the evenings got cooler and the location was good for days out. There was lots of information in a folder of places to go and eat out.

We were extremely pleased when we arrived to find a really excellent cottage and a very friendly owner. The old farm building has been renovated to a very high standard. The views from the kitchen and lounge windows across the countryside are great. We would like to return sometime in the future.

Hollies Barn is a beautiful cottage. It doesn't want for anything. The views from the cottage are amazing. We had sunshine every day which was a bonus and helped make our week. We would love to return sometime.

This property has been beautifully renovated to a high standard. The underfloor heating is lovely. Feels like a home from home. Highly recommended and the location is fantastic.

The property was a real home from home. It had everything that we needed and was very comfortable. There was a lot of space even for 4 adult sized people. The location was ideal. We were in a quiet, peaceful location, but near enough to towns and places of interest.

Hollies Barn is a lovely, comfortable property, ideally situated to travel all around the Peak District. We loved Derbyshire - it is such a beautiful, unspoilt county. We particularly liked the fact that on three different evenings, a mountain hare passed close by the lounge window and we were then able to watch it in the field opposite.

A very well appointed cottage on a quiet lane. Had open plan living, dining and sitting area with ample room. There were lots of good walks at all levels from the cottage as well as the surrounding area. Nearby town for restaurants, shops and takeaways.

The accommodation was faultless, very well equipped and beautifully finished. The location suited us very well with easy access to the High Peak Trail and Carsington Water, as well as Bakewell and the Monsal Trail. All in all, a superb holiday.

The cottage was amazing, it was of a very high standard with everything we could possibly need. It made such a difference being able to come back after a day out to somewhere that was so comfortable, warm and well equipped.

Venue was chosen to accommodate family with an elderly parent with limited mobility so having all facilities on one level was ideal. Hollies Barn satisfied our requirements perfectly.
Mrs Cross

Hollies Barn was excellent for its proximity to local attractions and as a comfortable family base. It has everything you need when away from home; we felt relaxed coming back to Hollies Barn after a busy day. Would definitely recommend Hollies Barn for a short break. Guest book comments very helpful.

We liked where it was situated, within easy driving access to everywhere we wanted to go. We loved the animals to the rear of the property that we could go and see when we wanted, and we loved Bella the dog. We also liked the fact that if a problem had arisen the owners were on hand next door.
January 2012
We had a wonderful long weekend here. Hollies Barn is in a lovely setting with beautiful countryside all around. It is close to quaint villages to wander round and explore and not too far from Derby where we enjoyed a days shopping before relaxing with a glass of wine in the cottage. We had everything we could possibly need provided to us and the owners were so helpful. Hollies Barn has been renovated to a high standard and is beautiful inside and out
February 2013
Lovely Barn Conversion. Owners had decorated it for us with a lovely lit up Christmas Tree and Decorations. Bottle of Wine was left in the Fridge, all very welcoming. Property was well equipt, couldn't think of anything that would have made our visit any better. Really good area for Site Seeing, there are some really good places to visit all around. If there was any complaint it was that the Patio Doors looked out onto Barn Doors opposite. I would certainly visit again.

We stayed for a week in the summer. We had an amazing time. The barn was ideally located for all attractions. The accommodation was clean, modern and well equipped. The owners went that extra mile to make your stay a good one. If we were to go back to the Lake District we will definately try Hollies Barn first.
