The Hollies is a perfectly relaxing getaway; the house has such a homely feel, and you can spend hours in the gardens just taking in the scenery. It's one of those gems that actually exceeds expectations, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We had a fabulous family weekend at The Hollies. Emmas hospitality was great and the house is fantastic, with everything you could possibly need and superb for our family group of 8 adults and two dogs. The games room was a massive hit, as was the open plan kitchen dinner were we could all be together and also the outside space. Ludlow and ShropshiRead morere were nice days out and we had a lovely take away from the nearby Chinese. We would love to go back and can certainly recommend The Hollies. Hide
