We had a lovely week at Holly Brook. Lovely, peaceful accommodation in a beautiful part of the world, who could ask for more? We're slightly reluctant to give Holly Brook a good review for the selfish fear it will be all booked up the next time we want to stay and wonder if the less complimentary review we read on TripAdvisor was written with this reason in mind as we saw none of the negative aspects of that review during our stay. The barn has been beautifully converted; spacious with everything you need and we'd love to own something just like it as our private holiday getaway - we can but dream! It also comes with a very pretty garden complete with a babbling brook. Friendly welcoming owners who never encroached on our privacy so all round a very enjoyable and restful experience. Eggs from the owners' own hens a lovely touch too
