Stayed: April 2012
* The Date of Arrival is inaccurate as sadily I am unable to select any date earlier than last April, the actual date for our stay was January 6th - 13th 2012*
I had stopped at Hollymount in the late 90's with my mother and friends when I was just a child, the memories were everlasting and I rebooked for a break for myself and my wife last year as a late honeymoon treat. Everything about Hollymount is perfect. From the moment you drive up the long driveway until the moment you leave. There is nobody to disturb you, only sheep in the fields, the garden is nice and large and very peaceful. The cottage itself is very cosy with everything you need, there is even a selection of games, DVD's, Videos and books for the rainy days. We both really enjoyed the conservatory, even in mid winter you are able to sit in there as there is enough heating. One of the best things about Hollymount are the views, I would spend hours sat in one of the front bedrooms looking out across the Worcestershire countryside, We both loved the feeling at the end of the day that we had Hollymount to return to, and we left at the end of the week feeling so relaxed and very sad that the week had come to an end.
There is plenty to do in the area, Worcester and Malvern is only a 10-15 minute drive away, and Birmingham is less than an hours drive away. If you fancy a local day without using the car then all you need to do is leave the cottage grounds and you are surrounded by lots of fantastic country walks. There are some good restaurants in the area too, some within walking distance.
I would recommend this property to anyone. We are both very fond of the old gem, and are saving up to return. If you are looking for a relaxing country break. away from it all, where the only sound to be heard is the wildlife and trees rustling in the wind then look no further than Hollymount.
Owner's Response: I think it is fantastic that you have remembered Hollymount since your first stay as a child... and that you still feel the same about the old house and the surroundings. It IS a special place, and these days it is so nice to find peace and quiet from time to time.
Thank you for taking time to write so kind words of Hollymount - I look forward to welcoming you both back ... Mia
