Here’s a selection of comments from our recent guests:

“Hollybank House is a great location for a group stay, and our book group is about to book a third year on the run. Exceptionally well-equipped (all the bedrooms have TVs, bathrobes and tea and coffee making facilities, for example and there is not a single piece of kitchen equipment that hasn’t been thought of), it’s also in a great location within a short walk of Ashbourne’s shops, cafes and restaurants.”
Sandra C, Birmingham, UK
“We had a wonderful week at Hollybank House. The owners were very helpful when I was booking the stay and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we stepped into the house. We were overwhelmed by the food hamper, wine and individually named colouring books and sweets for all 4 children.”
Judith J, Cardiff, United Kingdom
“Hollybank House is in the heart of Ashbourne and just a stones throw from the Peaks. Perfect for large families and small groups of friends.”
JonC, Woking, United Kingdom
“Probably the best organised place I have ever rented.
The “getting in” was made super smooth by a keybox on the door.
On the table was an amazing welcome pack with everything needed to get us started , incl wine and fantastic individual gifts for the kids/ teens.”
AmandaD, Toronto, Canada
