New cottage: Hollin How

Published:

History buffs will just love staying at Hollin How, as there's so much to explore: there's been a house on the site for around 700 years but the farmhouse as you'd recognise it dates back to the late 1600s. A working farm until the 1960s, Hollin How has now finally opened its doors for everyone to enjoy!
