Lovely location and surroundings, property was very dog friendly - they loved the big back yard to run around.We werent prepared for the weather to be quite as cold as it was in November and found that the lower level of the house took some time to warm up even with the fire going but the cottage was very well equipped and we had an enjoyable stay!!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
The property was spacious and everything you would need was available to us. We had family members visit and they loved the cottage also; many commenting they would like to come back and stay in the future. Amanda was very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wish to experience a little quiet and space!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
I stayed at Hollybush Cottage for a week in November with my 2 show dogs. It turned out to be absolutely perfect, especially for my clumber spaniels who have to stay inside.It was certainly doggy heaven. I will always stay here in the future. Amanda was wonderful and the town was picture perfect. Thank you Amanda.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
