What a fabulous first holiday destination for my twin girls. Beautifully spacious cottage amidst breathtaking scenery.

You may have convinced this city girl that life in the country ain’t bad at all!

We will be back- with husband in tow.

We’ve had an amazing time staying here at Hollambys. The cottage is very well decorated and provides a most relaxing environment to a holiday away (especially the patio in the evening when the sun shines).

I congratulate you on the facilities you have provided here!!

The location has been perfect for visiting several National Trust places.

We have had lovely evenings out and thank you both for letting us stay at your lovely cottage.
