    • This property is in our top two of holiday accommodation that we have been doing over the last 25 years. Excellent facilities situated in superb gardens and breathtakingly scenery.
    • We had a very lovely holiday in Holly Lodge. The setting was idyllic & the facilities excellent. Vanessa was very welcoming & the eggs, milk & wine which she provided for our arrival were much appreciated. We certainly plan to return.
