Holloway House is spacious and well equipped. Fabulous views from the front of the house over beautiful countryside which can be enjoyed from a lovely arm chair in the bay window. We were surprised to learn that there was an apartment at the top of the building, as well as a physio therapy treatment room, and a small gym/yoga area in separate buildRead moreings within the garden.

Stayed for a family gathering. Plenty of room, great facilities and lots to do within a short drive. Good walks and a pub nearby too. Owners very helpful and on hand if they are needed. We would definitely stay again. Very much recommended.

A very spacious, well-equipped holiday home in a beautiful location. The owners are also very responsive. When we had a problem with the wi-fi, they responded within a few minutes. And when we complained about the mattress in one of the bedrooms, the owner turned up with a brand new Simba one a couple of hours later. Amazing!

Fantastic house. So much space for us all to move around and to relax together. We never felt ontop of each other. The bedrooms are also incredibly spacious. The pool table was a great bonus as we had 3 under 18s with us. And it being part of the house was perfect. The owners were very helpful when we had a problem with the heating.
