Holly Cottage is the perfect destination for singles or couples; a completely relaxing holiday, a romantic short break, or a fabulous energetic outdoor experience. We have taken a tumbled down Grade II listed building and transformed it into a haven of tranquility. The cottage is on a quaint lane in the peaceful village of Ellastone, near to our stunning village pub The Duncombe Arms, beautiful church and our very own stretch of the River Dove. Situated in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales with easy access to the Peak District and the Staffordshire Moorlands. With walking and cycling at your doorstep, and horse riding, climbing and canoeing nearby there is something for everyone. Just driving through the sleepy local villages provides for a great day out. You can choose how special you would like your visit to be. Our standard package provides you with all the little touches to make your visit to our lovely cottage very enjoyable. All towels, bed linen, toiletries, bath robes, tea coffee biscuits milk and sugar will be waiting for you, but why not make your special occasion even more special with one of our luxury hampers? Containing Champagne or Prosecco or wine, some flowers & chocolates, a local produce breakfast hamper or any combination. For your special occasion it can all be waiting for you when you arrive (complete with fairy lights if you like). You will stay in a totally restored 17th century cottage which offers a cosy retreat, but with all the modern luxuries needed for 21st century living. There is dedicated off-road parking for 2 cars right at your door, along with a seating area for alfresco dining. Our free wifi is provided for your convenience. If you want it it's totally unlimited; if you need a complete break you can switch off the router - the choice is yours. We are pleased to welcome one small well behaved dog & also offer a doggy daycare or evening dog sitting service for guests. Our local pub The Duncombe Arms serves superb food and is only a short stroll along the lane from Holly Cottage (and is dog friendly). Close to the famous stepping stones at Dovedale, Staffordshire Moorlands, The Limestone Way, Tissington Trail, and the Manifold Valley Alton Towers is only 3 miles away, so you can arrive there early and beat the crowds For shopping the delightful market town of Ashbourne is easily accesible Cosy lounge with underfloor heating and log burner effect fire Snuggly reclining leather sofa Smart TV with Internet Access, DVD player and Freeview channels Free unlimited WiFi Pretty bedroom and en-suite bathroom with large double ended bath and electric shower All of your luxury bed linen, towels and toiletries are included.

Beautiful little cottage in a lovely quiet lane, spotlessly clean and everything you could need. Lovely host and a perfect place for a relaxing break for two. Can't recommend highly enough. Oh, and a lovely pub less than 5 minutes walk away 😊
