Middle Holly Cottage is a great location for visiting our family north of Preston, Lancashire. Lovely house, great hosts, excellent breakfasts (my wife says thank you for the scrambled eggs and I say likewise for the sausages)

We were welcomed by Ian into his well appointed and delightful home after we had endured a tortuous journey from the West Country.

Had a fantastic stay on our way south from Mull. We were made to feel very welcome after our long drive from Oban. The room was excellent- particularly the bed. Breakfast was absolutely superb. Highly recommend it.

We received a warm welcome, the room and bed were comfortable and the frig in the room a bonus. We also received excellent advice on where to go for dinner and on locating a little-known ruined castle in the area, and managed to find it! A great night's sleep and breakfast was excellent too. As we are on an extended...
