  • "We last came seven years ago and return visits after some time can be a let down."

    Not a bit of it. It was as perfect as we remembered. Spotlessly clean, well equipped with everything you need ( and no cupboard full of bits left by previous tenants!!) comfortable and peaceful. We have already booked our next visit.

    Cottage was perfect, had all we needed. Kitchen had all we needed to cook each night. Cosy and comfy bedrooms, living/dining room on the smaller side but for just us was perfect and added to the charm. Enclosed garden to the front of the cottage, great for my German Shepherd. Spotlessly clean throughout. Owners very helpful throughout the stay, luggage their dog was great. The surrounding views were beautiful. Lots of places to visit out and about, Cottage is a great base. Cannot fault it. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Lovely barn conversion."

    Lived up to the description online. Probably the cleanest and most well presented cottage in which we have stayed. Owners friendly but unobtrusive. Very rural, quiet and peaceful with easy access to delights of the Peak District. Great value for money!

  • "We were warmly welcomed for our 3 night stay."

    There was tea, coffee and milk on arrival and a very tasty homemade lemon drizzle cake. The property is well situated for exploring peaks and dales. It is comfortable and cosy and I would definitely recommend. We missed out on pie night at the local, which was our only disappointment. Just a quick tip in very wet weather, the lane floods if approaching from Shirley, better to approach from Hollington end. Highly recommend.

    Having stayed in numerous holiday lets, The Byre is top of the pops. There wasn't a speck of dust, dirt, grease, or grime anywhere - it was spotless. We were welcomed by Brian and Julie, and although Angela was not there to supply one of her famous lemon drizzle cakes, Julie kindly provided a scrummy cream tea. Thank you both for lovely holiday.

  • "The cottage and surroundings were lovely."

    The cottage was clean and tidy. The dog was very welcome and loved the field. The chicken was a hit with the children, especially when they were able to collect eggs. The owners were lovely and helpful. The beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of space for parking. It was lacking some basics, which would have been useful. For example, spare batteries, toilet role, Tupperware, enough cups/cutlery/glasses/crockery for 6 people (both cottages), sellotape, first aid kit, safety pins, sewing kit and different sized pots for the oven.

    Apologies you thought we were missing a few basics. Just thought I should respond to help any future guests. I can confirm there was and is a fully stocked first aid box with safety pins in a cupboard in the kitchen. Along with the fire blanket and fire extinguisher . We do take health and safety very seriously. We leave a few toilet rolls for your arrival but the accommodation is classed as self catering, although we do supply all cleaning essentials for the kitchen. We are always on hand and happy to help though should you require or run out of anything. There should be 6 place settings and I note there are only 5 plates, so apologies for this, one must have got broken at some point. I will replace this immediately. We do supply 3 baking trays and pizza trays along with a couple of glass dishes, sorry if that was not sufficient I will put a few extra in. Sewing kit and spare batteries for the remote control are good idea thank you for this., I’ll put them in. I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

    The Byre is really well equipped and spotless. We forgot tea towels but they was provided, the welcome pack was great and lemon drizzle cake was best I’ve ever tasted. There were also an iron and ironing board and hair dryer. As it was a smart TV we also enjoyed Netflix, it really is furnished and decorated to a excellent specification. We didn’t cook any evening meals or Sunday lunch, as we went to the Red Lion every evening to something to eat (0.7mile), however the dishwasher did come in very useful for breakfast dishes. The views out from the bedrooms and living room are lovely across Green fields, and no one looking in, we just watched the birds, pheasants, owl, and falcon was seen, there is a blue-tit nesting in the bird box so we enjoyed watching it fly in/out so close. The location was perfect for us was we go walking and birdwatching regular so it was ideal location for Middleton Lakes, Carsington water and the Attenborough nature reserve, we also visited 1 National Trust house, sadly as November, most places were closed for winter. Lastly, it was so clear at night the stars was so visible. Overall, it was a hone from home and we will definitely return (hopefully in summer) when there are more places open to visit. Thank you again for the warm welcome and fabulous stay.

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!

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
  • Christmas
