Holiday home
This lovely brick built barn conversion is in the village of Hollington and has been converted with style and elegance to provide comfortable holiday accommodation.

The Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by and have many outdoor pursuits on offer including walking and cycling, but for a different kind of excitement Alton Towers is a 25 minute drive away. A great holiday spot.

We had a great girls weekend at the Mews. We particularly liked the peace and quiet and the spacious accommodation at the cottage. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Mrs Meredith
December 2015
We had a fantastic family weekend. The location of the property was great and within easy reach of Ashbourne. The condition of the property was fantastic, really a home from home and very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub which was a highlight to the weekend! Hope to visit again in the future and will certainly recommend it.

The Mews is fantastic, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. We particularly liked the hot tub. We had a fabulous midweek break and are looking forward to arranging a return trip.

A beautiful property which was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The hot tub had a lovely outlook. The owners were very friendly and helpful. There were two great pubs within walking distance and it was very close to the lovely market town of Ashbourne. Can't fault it!

The property was extremely comfortable with every possible necessity catered for. The property was clean and the owners were very welcoming and helpful.

The Mews is an exceptional barn conversion completed to a high specification and it would be difficult not to feel relaxed here. The place was spotless and the owner made lots of extra touches which were fully appreciated. The hot tub is divine and sitting outside in it, either in rain or shine, listening to the birds and sheep was bliss! Highly recommended accommodation.
Miss Steele

The weekend break was lovely, and would highly recommend, everything was perfect. My daughter loved feeding the sheep from the garden, and spending time here, it was very spacious inside. Would return in future.
Mrs Baker

The accommodation and setting were absolutely gorgeous and we had a fantastic weekend. Our host was very friendly and accommodating and even left us some lovely home-made cakes for the weekend!

I thought the layout of the living area and kitchen was great as it meant you could still be part of the conversation whichever room you were in.

Loved the cottage. Owner very welcoming, and all the animals fantastic! Hot tub great. Plenty of space for 3 couples, as we all had out own bathrooms, very spacious living area! Would definitely return.

We liked the space and loved the quality of the accommodation. The Hot tub was a was a lovely addition. We are a group of women in our early 50's and we have been organising mini breaks for over 10 years. We thought it was one of the nicest places we have stayed. We like to walk whilst away and we were able to complete a circular walk from The Mews. We would book the accommodation again.
Mrs Dines

As a family we enjoyed our stay, a time to unwind and spend with our family in Hereford and one from Italy. There was plenty of space for our little grand daughter to have fun. We plan to visit next year.

Fantastic property, very attractively furnished, but also cosy and homely with very friendly and helpful owners. Loved the hot tub which was checked daily and topped up with chemicals as necessary. An all round perfect relaxing holiday - exceeded our expectations in every way.
Mrs Stockton-King
June 2014
We had a fabulous weekend away. Felt welcomed and informed by the owners but were given complete privacy throughout our stay. The cottage itself was gorgeous made even nicer by the beautiful setting. The garden and hot tub were well used as we were fortunate to have great weather. I will definately be recommending this property to family and friends and am sure we will be back!

The hot tub was amazing, the owner was so helpful, she was happy to help with all my questions even before we got to the property! The cottage was just perfect - so clean and country like, all of the rooms in the cottage were gorgeous. We loved the sheep in the back garden! We cant wait to come back and visit the cottage again.

The decor was very tasteful. The cottage was very clean and snuggly warm. Hot tub was a brilliant touch. The owners were friendly and helpful and on the doorstep! The property is in a perfect position for walking, shopping or staying in!

Mr Bigley

Everything that we could possibly need was there including freshly baked scones on our arrival. The surroundings are delightful and peaceful apart from sheep baaing and cockerel crowing but that was a delight. The hot tub was wonderful, we all want one at home! The owners were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed including freshly laid eggs.
Mrs Lintill
November 2010
The cottage felt like a real home, not like a holiday home. Very relaxing. The owners had equipped it very well and even provided scones and milk on arrival which was lovely.
Mr Buchan

The hot tub was great. The owner was charming and very helpful. And our kids loved the sheep (and other animals) in the fields next door.

A great deal of thought has been put into furnishing the cottage to a very high standard to provide a luxurious holiday. The 'little extras' provided by the owners their hospitality friendliness made our holiday even more special.

We've just come back from a weekend at The Mews and we absolutely loved it. Philippa and her family are the perfect hosts - they make you feel so welcome and then leave you to enjoy your time at the cottage. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the hot tub is the perfect way to finish the day. The only regret is that we didn't stay longer ! We'll definitely be back and will recommend highly to family and friends. Sharon x

Home from home ~ I wish my home was like The Mews or The Retreat which we also rented for our group. Beautifully finished accommodation, a kitchen with everything we needed, a lovely lounge, nice bedrooms with comfortable beds, 2 with ensuite shower rooms & a lovely house bathroom. We loved the hot tub facing the field with the friendly sheep that were fairly interested in us humans especially if we had bread & gorgeous lambs frolicking about. One of our group was in a wheelchair & The Retreat was perfect all on one level. The weather was mixed, but the Sunday was sunny & warm, some of us went to nearby Alton Towers with the rest relaxing in the hot tub & on the back terrace. The Red Bull within walking distance is friendly with a good reasonable menu, they also have a good range in pies. The owners Philippa & Julian were lovely & very helpful :)

This is our second visit to the Mews and I would recommend it to anyone - the holiday is made all the more special by the owners and their wonderful family and pets. The hot tub makes the holiday a real piece of luxury. The Mews is a beautiful cottage in a perfect location.
Mrs Tasker

Great hosts, great place. Hot tub fantastic, would definitely go back!
Mrs Frankel

Everything about The Mews was superb and we cannot recommend it too highly. The conversion of the barn is most imaginative and attractive and the living spaces are beautifully fitted out with furniture and equipment to the highest standard for this kind of cottage. The owner could not have been more helpful and went to a great deal of trouble to find out information about places we wanted to visit. There is a great deal to do in the area. The provision of a hot tub on the patio provided much fun for our four grandchildren and the owners' pets (two dogs and a cat) rapidly became a part of our family for the duration of our stay. The flower tubs and decking at the rear of the cottage provided a very pretty setting when we wanted to relax outdoors and the views from the house are exquisite. This was a really great place for a family holiday and we want to thank you for suggesting it.

This property was a dream for the 7 days. I have already thought of pre booking again. The Mews was amazing. The hot tub was a bonus. The family were very welcoming. The Red Lion pub had a very warm and traditional feel.

I booked the Mews for a girls weekend away, with the hot tub being our main lure! And we were not disappointed! The hot tub comfortably fitted all 7 of us. The cottage is beautifully decorated and so homely. The photographs really do not do it justice- it's much bigger than I expected. We are all already considering booking our next trip with husbands and partners. Simply can't fault it. Brilliant!

Just returned from midweek break at The Mews. (Family get together ) Totally agree with previous reviews... Best cottage we have ever stayed in. Everything was so well thought out ... Simple things that make the difference.... Large kettle ,teapot & toaster made breakfast hassle free. Numerous pots & pans & crockery. Plenty of literature on local surroundings, games & cards for rainy days, although we had great weather. Plastic cups for the hot tub & a lovely welcoming gift of fresh farm eggs, jug of milk & home made cake. We visited the Red Lion one evening & were given a friendly welcome so of course we had to go again on pie night. Can't wait to return to the mews & the red lion.

beautiful property! The photos do not really do it justice. Well equipped and in a picturesque setting. We loved the hot tub with its lovely outlook. The owners Phillipa and Julian could really not have been more hospitable or helpful during our stay. The local pub,The Red Lion, which is 10 mins walk away serves good food and is very friendly. A slightly longer stroll takes you to the Saracens Head which is a gastropub well worth a visit. Close by,Ashbourne is a nice market town with some great shops and cafes. We will definitely return!

As soon as we arrived felt at home we were met by the owners who are wonderful and can't do enough for you. The mews are breath taking no expense has been spared even feather quilts. The hot tub is amazing on an evening with glass of wine overlooked by a field of sheep of which Neil the sheep is very much in charge. He alone is worth the visit such a character. The pub down the road Red Lion is fantastic food well worth a visit. Overall wonderful place wonderful family who run it and of course the pets are fab. We will book again and bring all our friends.

Visited The Mews for a weekend at the beginning of January with 7 of my friends for a cosy leaving do before I leave for Australia in a couple of weeks. We chose this property due to the fact it had a hottub big enough for us all and we were not disappointed!! The pictures do not do it justice - it is such a pretty place - so clean and cosy and big without losing that imtimate feeling. We were very lucky with the weather - it was very mild & dry so we walked to the Red Lion on our first evening there - a very friendly, cosy local pub with proper pub grub at proper pub grub prices! We went for a walk around surrounding areas the next day and stopped at The Yew Tree for a nice refreshing drink on the way back. We took a drive into nearby Ashbourne in the afternoon to replenish alcohol supplies and have some chips and a cream tea :) That evening was spent soley surrounding by bubbles - of the alchol variety in our glasses and in the water surrounding us - the definite highlight of the weekend!!! It was such a luxury and just made our stay that much better. Both mornings we enjoyed breakfast all together sat around the table and the lviing room was lovely and big enough for us all to sit comfortably on an evening. Have already recommended this property and would go again if I wasn't going away!Owner was also called Philippa (very unusual for me to come across another Philippa) and was very friendly & welcoming. We all loved every single second of our stay :)

We can't rate this beautiful property and our stay highly enough. This cottage had everything we needed and more besides. We stayed with our two young children (7 and 8) and had some friends and their two children stay as a surprise for husband's 40th. We catered mostly for ourselves as we are keen cooks and found the kitchen was fully stocked with all the kitchenalia we could need. The property was warm, clean, homely - just relaxing, especially with the hot tub. Phillipa, Julian and their family including the animals (a bonus for our children) were always so welcoming and we knew that if we had had any problems then they would have done everything they could to rectify this during our stay. They immediately felt more like friends of old than simply the property owners. Given that it is a barn conversion, the upstairs bedroom makes good use of the loft space but in doing so it does have a low bed - husband is 6'2", so long way down for him. This property is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a great location and a real treat. Our children would especially like to thank Max, Flirty and Dave (the dogs), Archie (the cat) and Neil, Lulu and Dusty (the sheep) - apologies to those they have failed to mention. We are sure that any one else staying at this property will appreciate and respect the thought and effort that has gone into making this a holiday home rather than a holiday let.

We had a super stay at the Mews. The owners were friendly and approachable, happy for us to arrive before the usual check in time as it was available. The cottage was spotless, cosy and welcoming. The beds are extremely comfortable. There were some crumpets, butter, milk and jam laid out for our arrival, and other small touches like dishwasher tablets/washing powder. The hot tub was superb, especially in the evening with a glass of wine! We had 4 young children with us and this presented no problem, they loved feeding the sheep at the back of our property! My mum also rented the Retreat and it was of a similar high standard. Only minor problem was although the owner kindly lent us her code for internet access, we could only pick up a signal by standing near the front door. Probably not a major problem if you are on holiday but we did need to spend a fair amount of time online for work purposes. We look forward to returning next year for another family break!

I can not rate this holiday let higher!! The property is fantastic and although the photos look amazing on the website, they really don't do the property justice!! We were greeted by the owner, who could not have been friendlier. This is the first property that we have rented that we felt at ease with the owner and could really relax and enjoy our stay! The owner could not have been more helpful and even let me have some paracetamol for a headache! (The nearest shop is a drive away and while this is probably a good thing, you do have to be organised?!!) My 4 year old daughter LOVED the animals, especially the sheep she befriended. We have had two outbursts of tears since our return (only yesterday!!) about not being able to go and feed and play with the sheep! I would definately would like to return for another break away and would definately recommend to others (in fact we have already!!)

We recently stayed at the Mews in Hollington. Its was very easy to get to with a sat nav, making the journey there completely pleasant. When we walked into the cottage there was a real "wow" factor as the converted barn has a warm but open feeling as you walk in. The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans and general equipment, and there was a jug of milk left for us on entry and some yummy crumpets. We though the lounge area was lovely - a lovely room with seating and dining space for 8 people, although the dining table was in a slightly cramp position. There was a lovely feature fireplace with gas powered fire making the cottage have a very cozy feel. There are enough "real" beds for 6 people, 2 double and 1 twin, but there are also at least 3 temporary beds, leaving plenty of room for plenty of people. The upstairs double bed is a particularly lovely room. The hot tub is excellent - plenty of space for all of us to get in, and quite advance in terms of features with various levels of bubble settings. the hot tub is set on a lovely patio with a table for dining al fresco, and overlooking a lovely back yard filled with sheep and phesants. A great cottage for a quiet relaxing escape, not suitable for those looking for a bit of a party cottage, as there isn't a town to be seen within a 20min drive. Walking in the surround area is fairly flat, but there are (very muddy when we were there) bridle paths around. The cottage is on the edge of the beautiful peak district so you don't have to go far for a more adventurous and glorious countryside. Perfect for those looking to really relax for the weekend.

What a place!! Superbly decorated to really high standard. Everything we needed and more. Very comfortable indeed. The hot tub is such a special advantage of this property compared to others. Was within easy reach for walking in the area. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Loved our stay in this cottage. It was beautifully decorated and the hot tub was a real bonus. The view at the back was a highlight - we would come back from a day out and either sit in the hot tub or sit with a cup of tea on the patio chairs and watch the sheep grazing in the fields. Very relaxing. The owners were very friendly. It was nice to arrive and find milk in the fridge and a cake on the side!! Lots to see and do - especially liked the National Trust properties of which there were many and the Crown Derby factory tour was a real treat.

Lovely welcoming hosts... warm cottage... pub close by... and the hot tub in the snow was fabulous fun! We take a few trips a year as a group of friends, and until now have never found a cottage we've like enough to return to! Just hope I haven't left it too late to book again!

We arrived excited about our family holiday and were greeted cordially by our hostess. The cottage was clean and welcoming. Our every need was met. When the fridge freezer broke down it was replaced within 24 hours with no fuss. The hot tub was great and our hostess took great care maintaining it. An excellent cottage, spacious for the six of us and really well equipt. Highly recommended
