Our Story

Hollybank House

Although most of Hollybank House was built in 1825 (some of it is much older) we, the Williams family, have only been custodians since 1966. There is an interesting history which we will gladly share with you.

The real deal, my wife and myself stayed for three nights in the pink room and it was great, the beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was a treat, this was home from home. We both fell in love with the house the moment we saw it on the web and when we arrived it was even better. To share this beautiful home with Viv and Anna was a pleasure, if you want modern plastic and chrome this is not for you, but to have a taste of the past with luxury thrown in this is it. We are going back again in May for a few days and i am sure it will not be the last.

Trip Advisor

One of the best bed and breakfast accommodation we have stayed in. Great hosts. Breakfast very good. After our daily trips we would come back and make tea and take it and sit in the wonderful grounds, seeing foxes and even deer. We shall definitely be returning.

Trip Advisor

Beautiful and architecturally interesting house in very large grounds. Our bedroom was very spacious and the whole setting was incredibly quiet and peaceful. Super comfortable beds and nice extras in the room - tea and coffee facilities but also a tin of biscuits and some bottled water. Delicious breakfast, freshly cooked to order. Friendly and informative hosts.

The Williams Family

Viv and Anna have been running Hollybank as a Bed and Breakfast since 2002 and wedding venue since before that.

Since lockdown Ian and Roz have started to take on the operations of the house. Roz, with a background as House Manager of Goodwood House for 9 years is taking this in her stride. Ian, with 18 years of global events and photoshoot production enjoys turning the idea of an event into reality.

We enjoy meeting people and love helping to plan and deliver events of all different shapes and sizes and Hollybank lends itself perfectly to most.

There is a whole lot more to us and the rest of the family. Come and stay or host an event and we can tell you more of our story.
