“WHAT A FIND”

Hollybank House is a rare find - exceptional for comfort, location, number of bedrooms and
spotlessly clean. Oh, almost forgot - and pet friendly. Our welcome pack exceeded our expectations, especially for our three young granddaughters. The owners could not have done more to ensure we had a memorable 3 night visit and we had a fabulously happy time there. We also fitted 13 at the table for Sunday lunch! Top marks Hollybank House.

Thank you for your review.So pleased to know that all the family including canine members had a great time.There are pet friendly eating places within walking distance of the house and lovely walks nearby.The children's play area and wildlife nature walk is within walking distance for most ,so no need to take the car.

“A real gem”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I can't put into enough words how wonderful this accommodation and the service is for this house.
It ticked all the right boxes for our stay - and more.
Kindnesses such as presents appropriate for the age and sex of the children, Easter eggs, dog biscuits and dog tag with telephone number of house along with plentiful toiletries, wonderful welcome basket complete with wines, essentials in the kitchen cupboards and so much more - I could go on forever.
I have never seen so much in the way of entertainments for children and adults of all ages - inside and in the garden..
Easy flat walking distance into Ashbourne with its shopping, restaurants and park
My only problem is that we won't be able to book again as it will be already occupied.

“An amazing place to stay”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Hollybank House for a long weekend at the beginning of June. There were 6 adults and 3 young children and a dog! We had such a lovely time. I can't recommend this place enough. The owners have thought of everything - they even provide a dog tag with the holiday address on. There were cupboards full of toys (both indoor and outdoor) suitable for all ages. Every bedroom and both lounges had TVs. There were children's bath toys and toilet seats in the bathrooms. You simply couldn't ask for a better equipped house with children. For adults, there was a fantastic food and drink hamper left for us, books galore, tons of info on the area and an impressive gas BBQ. I can't really add much more, except to say that the two ladies who own the house have gone to so much trouble with all their thoughtfulness and little touches. And they were so helpful beforehand too, making sure we had everything we needed for our stay.
We can't wait to go back!
