Excellent B&B. Hosts Gill and Andrew did everything to make our stay a memorable one. Accomodation very comfortable and food superb - home made bread and preserves. Wide choice of breakfasts with local produce. You can even have tea when the tea shop is open. There is a sitting area for guests - one evening we brought sandwiches and a...

A lovely tearoom with the perfect Afternoon Tea. Everything homemade, the bread, the jam (at least 10+ to choose from), cakes and desserts. The owners and staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. In a world offering afternoon tea on every corner and Groupon selling vouchers by the vanload, I am more than happy to pay the...

Thank you so very much for your wonderful comments and feedback. This means so much to me to know that you have enjoyed the food we produce here. I see our Afternoon Tea as providing a taste of the food we serve on our lunchtime menu. So glad you enjoyed it and I'll carry on making jam to add further...

We have now stayed in Middle Holly Cottage several times, including twice since the current owners have been operating it. I last reviewed it in May 2015. It's a very convenient stopover point for us en route from our home to Scotland. However, it's such a pity that our stays are usually very short as it really is very good....

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Middle Holly. The guest house and gardens are beautifully maintained. We were met on arrival and taken up to our well presented room. Brightly furnished and all the comforts you'd need. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and homemade biscuits were on offer. The room itself was of a high standard and spotless....

Lovely tea room close to Forton. We had a sandwich followed by a scone and cake. Everything was perfect, the sandwich on excellent homemade bread with a lovely side salad and decent crisps ( not the usual excuse for a salad!) the scone perfect with a choice of 10+ homemade jams and the stout (yes that's right...) chocolate cake divine....

If you can, book more than one night at this clean, friendly, welcoming and comfortable B&B. The home-cooked cakes, scones and breads are first class, as is the choice at breakfast.On three days a week, their tea-room is open and is well worth a visit.

Arrived after a long journey to tea and cake in the lovely garden and the added bonus of glorious sunshine. Our room was nicely appointed, very clean and comfortable with all the little extras that show attention to detail and consideration for guests. Breakfast was perfect with best quality ingredients and Gill's homemade bread and marmalade are delicious. Thank you...

Wonderful afternoon tea, homemade bread, cakes and jams, served by Gill. Warm and freindly welcome and very good value for such high quality, just make sure you leave enough rooms for the scones which are huge. Easy to find just off the A6, large car park

We found this lovely B&B through the excellent reviews, and fully agree. Everything was clean, comfortable and tasteful, breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and the home made cake and biscuits in the room were an added luxury (also fresh milk in a mini-fridge). Middle Holly is so peaceful you'd hardly believe you're within spitting distance of the A6, convenient distance...
