  • "We had a great stay at the Mews."

    The accommodation looked great in the pictures and, if anything, was even better in reality. The facilities were great and Phillippa is a great host - very welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We hope to return to explore the area further.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a quiet village close to the Peak District."

    One pub within 5 mins walk of the property and several others within 5 minute drive. The property was beautiful and homely and had all the facilities to make our first staycation in a number of years a happy and memorable experience (we all loved feeding the sheep). I would highly recommend this accommodation but you do need your own transport. Spotless and also made us feel safe in light of the Covid restrictions in place. Thank you to our host for the lovely welcome and use of your property.

  • "We had an absolutely brilliant holiday at The Mews!"

    ! The owner really put us at ease with everything she did at the property to make us feel safe during this Cornavirus outbreak. The property itself was exactly as we'd expected, we wasn't disappointed when we arrived -sometimes you can stay at a property and it doesn't look anything like the photos on the website!! It was like a home from home, and we all felt very relaxed and at ease the whole time we were there. The hot tub was very much welcomed. We'll definitely be coming back for another stay at The Mews!!

    The conversion of the barn is most imaginative and attractive and the living spaces are beautifully fitted out with furniture and equipment to the highest standard for this kind of cottage. The owner could not have been more helpful and went to a great deal of trouble to find out information about places we wanted to visit. There is a great deal to do in the area. The provision of a hot tub on the patio provided much fun for our four grandchildren and the owners' pets (two dogs and a cat) rapidly became a part of our family for the duration of our stay. The flower tubs and decking at the rear of the cottage provided a very pretty setting when we wanted to relax outdoors and the views from the house are exquisite. This was a really great place for a family holiday and we want to thank you for suggesting it.

About the location


Ashbourne 6 miles.

Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District, the lovely village of Hollington, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, provides home to a scattering of traditional brick built cottages, old farmhouses and barn conversions, whilst being surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and offering a number of country pubs renowned locally for excellent service and fine cuisine. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls and many fine coaching inns. In its heyday, during the 18th century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer with a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don't expect a bargain! For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by offering good walking and cycling, whilst Alton Towers is just 25 minutes away!
