I am tentatively taking new bookings. Please get in touch if you'd like to come and stay, dates are changing daily and I've just updated the online calendar so by tonight I hope it will be accurate and talking to the other platforms we are listed on.
We can do same day turn arounds. The house is cleaned each time by a professional cleaning team, who solely do holiday lets. They are a small family business and have been isolating together.
The house will sleep up to 16 people, (11 in traditional beds plus a double sofa bed and trio of single pop up beds) and is an ideal house for groups wanting to relax and explore the area. The house is a hit with Hens and larger family gatherings. mostly booked out at weekends. It's also worth knowing we also take weekday bookings for fewer number of guests. You don't have to have full capacity to enjoy the house.

Stonesfield is in an Area of Natural Beauty. Hollyhock House is on the edge of the village. It's very quiet and secluded. We have no street lights or pavements. It's a quaint rural community where everyone knows everyone, and everyone is welcome.
Dogs are welcome and are charged at £40 per dog per stay. Please inform me if you are bringing a dog. No Cats allowed.
The house is located on a quiet lane, and surrounded by countryside. The village has no street lights and so you will need to bring a torch if you want to explore the village at night and the garden/BBQ hut. There is lighting in the BBQ hut. Just not in the garden, its worth noting there are steps to negotiate, from the decking into the garden.
