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. The breakfast menu has some tempting choices including the locally bought organic...

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.

Tucked just off the A6 Lancaster - Grastang road, but away from the bustle. Excellent B&B. Superb accommodation, nice extra trimmings and most of all, a superb breakfast, with locally sourced items. Warm and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend

This was my 5th visit to the cottage and everything, as usual, was 1st class! The breakfasts were fulsome and delicious, the room was very clean and comfortable, and the house was very pleasant with a nice atmosphere.

This is a return visit for us and as Hilary and Ian had retired wondered if anything had changed. The answer is no the new owners Andy and Gill have picked up everything and kept it all so lovely.
