Went today to the Middle Holly for afternoon Tea. What a lovely place to start with. Gill was very friendly and accommodating. The tea was amazing, a shot of carrot & coriander soup, followed by finger sandwiches with various fillings all very fresh, then damson jelly, macaroons, éclairs, meringues and more little goodies, then scone, jam and clotted cream. You...

Beautiful property, charming inside and out, very well maintained and a high standard of housekeeping throughout. Mr and Mrs Osborne, the owners and hosts, were welcoming, personable and provided lovely breakfasts. We both enjoyed chatting to them. Our room was very comfortable.

Everything is top notch and very well done at this b&b. A warm welcome, comfortable beds in well appointed rooms, superb breakfasts -including home made bread, preserves and muesli- and a really friendly and helpful couple running it make this somewhere we would definitely stay again. Highly recommended!

There is a lovely welcome here. Nice cakes. The car park is at the rear with steps to enter or a long walk round the tearoom outside. No accessible toilet. It's always difficult to be accessible in old properties. Not accessible for wheelchair users.

Jill the owner was so friendly and attentive. She catered for our gluten free needs perfectly, many thanks for that. We will definitely call again the quality and freshness of food was...

Lovely place. More like staying with friends in their very nice (and spotless) house. Cooked breakfast was particularly good and generous in size. Tea and coffee making facilities in room also very good with complimentary quality biscuits, chocolates and fresh milk available. Book your local taxi ahead of time to take you to places in the evenings or to get...

I have made 2x overnight stays at Middle Holly Cottage, the first in Oct 2016 & the second time in Jan 2017. on both occasions, the rooms were spotlessly clean & well appointed, with excellent ensuite facilities. The breakfast offers a little bit extra above the normal fayre & is included in the overnight rate.

Cathie and I had another wonderful stay at Middle Holly cottage!! So comfortable, incredibly friendly and fantastic breakfasts - particularly the great omelette Andy cooked for me, and their lovely homemade bread!! Attention to detail is their speciality, with well presented rooms including chilled fresh milk to make your own brew in the room should you wish. We also enjoyed...
