  • "The Croft was a delightful cottage in a tranquil setting."

    It was immaculate, cleaned to a very high standard for our arrival. The bed was very comfortable and the ensuite was spacious with a great shower. Lots of thoughtful touches like the milk and lemon drizzle cake on arrival made it very welcoming. The hosts were very approachable and friendly. Will definitely return in the future.

  • "Super hosts!"

    The cottage was fabulous. I loved all the little touches like the key fob (I bought a similar one from the lovely craft summerhouse!), the lemon drizzle cake left for us, the beautiful fresh flowers in the kitchen window and the super special big dog blanket. Loved the hare picture too. Outside the view was lovely. Laying on the sun lounges amongst the lovely garden flowers listening to just the bird songs was so nice and great to meet Jordan the resident chicken! Restful, peaceful luxury with a feeling of warmth and friendliness - fantastic. Nice pub a short, sheep enhanced, dog walk away. It was just what we hoped it would be and just as shown on the internet if not better. Thank you xx

  • "We had the most incredible stay, from the warm welcome, to the freshly baked cake and milk in the fridge."

    Being our first holiday away with our new dog she was made to feel very spoilt with her own mats and blankets as well as endless amount of treats. The Living area was spacious, comfortable and well equip. A beautiful spot which we will be returning too. Thank you! With so many fantastic walks around it might be nice to have somewhere to put muddy shoes by the door. But that's just because the space was so beautiful that it was a shame to put shoes straight onto the floor.

    The owners had tastefully decorated it for Christmas and left a lovely lemon drizzle cake and doggy treats for us. Attention to detail was excellent. I’d brought my own hairdryer and cafetière but needn’t have. I would definitely recommend this property.

    Beautifully clean and comfortable with everything you need for a weeks stay. Lovely views from the front patio. Julie and Angela are great hosts and very good at recommending places to visit and eat. The two nearby pubs are good but you do need to drive as the lane is dark and narrow. We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely cottage and we will return.

  • "We have had an amazing week!"

    Staying at The Croft was like home from home and Julie, Angela, Brian and Jamie are such great hosts and hostesses. The position is so peaceful with fabulous views and yet so near Ashbourne and great walks - both formal (Tissington Trail) and through parks (Osmaston) and on public footpaths. Our dog, Alfie was in his element! We ate twice at the village pub, The Red Lion, and can thoroughly recommend the pies and steak. The break was just what we needed and more than we could have hoped for. Thank you.

    bedroom Big Wow! this accomodation is perfect in every way. The welcome gestures were lovely, Family are very friendly and helpful, We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years and this one came out Top for us. The location is great, in a quiet secluded spot yet well situated for lots of villages and several lovely pubs which did great meals. There are lots of places to visit, some disappointing due to the covid rules (most little studio shops and cafes were closed - only doing take aways) but that was understandable and did not spoil our holiday. We loved the area and plan to be back to The Croft next year all being well.

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!
