The Tearoom is worth a visit. We only had coffees on this occasion and were delighted by the beautiful surroundings and the very pleasant owner who served us. Would certainly go again and try other items on the menu.

We stayed for 2 nights as we were attending a family wedding locally. Gill and Andy provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay - right down to delicious home baked cookies left alongside the tea/coffee making facilities in our rooms. We were given front door keys so that we felt free to return very late at night after the...

We enjoyed our short stopover en route to Scotland. The location is perfect for this. Andy and Gill were extremely welcoming. We had stayed there in the past, and it's good to know that high standards are maintained or even exceeded under newish ownership. The rooms are very comfortable. Our party used a single and a twin. They are equipped...

Visited here to see the new tearoom. The place is spotless and very welcoming. The new owners are very friendly and professional and make you feel right at home. Splendid tea, with many varieties if you wish, and wonderful cake. It was a pleasure to visit here. I will return.

They were closed when I arrived as work is being done to shortly open a tea room on the ground floor, however Andy and Gill kindly allowed me to stay and I'm very glad I did. The inn is beautiful (the booklet on the history of the inn is worth reading), comfortable and extremely quiet despite being on a main...

I stayed here for one night en route to the Lake District and could not have been happier. I stayed in the single room and this was comfortable and had everything you could ask for. The B&B was spotlessly clean and the little extra touches added to the value! This was all rounded off with a tasty breakfast. The owners...

We stayed at this great B&B last night which is situated off junction 33 of the M6 northbound and is also accessible from the A6 Middle Holly Cottage is more like a 'Boutique Hotel' with its tastefully furnished bedrooms, all ensuite, every bathroom is squeaky clean and modern.

Middle holly cottage is a little gem, excellent clean rooms, great breakfasts, sets you up for the day, There is a English pub nearby, a fish and chips shop/restaurant, and an Italian restaurant all excellent food served. Near to Lancaster, and Morcambe, or the lakes for trips out. Owners are very friendly and cant do enough for you.
