Luxury Self-Catering Holiday Let

Hollies Barn sits a couple of miles outside the picturesque, bustling market town of Nantwich (see below for more info), in South Cheshire, close to the borders of Staffordshire and Shropshire.  Our newly-converted former dairy shippon sleeps 12, across its six double (or twin) bedrooms, each individually designed.

Group Accommodation – for friends & family..

The 100-year-old barn is an ideal base for your stay with family or friends, whether you’re planning a long overdue catch-up, re-union or an annual get-together. It’s also the perfect venue for celebrating a special occasion or attending a wedding nearby.

Finished to a 5-star standard, our barn conversion has been designed with comfort and socialising in mind. It’s the ideal place for you to unwind and reconnect, with its double-sided log burner, hot tub, private courtyard, large garden, open-plan living area, large dining table and comfy beds.

Plenty going on nearby…

The luxury barn is surrounded by the Cheshire countryside, while still being within easy reach of a wide range of attractions – the best of both worlds. Think family time at the Monkey Forest, shopping in Chester or enjoying the great outdoors pony trekking or clay shooting. Whether it’s adrenaline, relaxation, retail therapy or food that takes your fancy, we’ve a wealth of places to visit on our doorstep, for both rainy & sunny days! For our local attractions map, please click here.

Children welcome

So you can travel a little lighter, and relax a lot more, we have child-friendly facilities available. Plus, our self-catering holiday let is bursting with toys and our ‘boot in the garden’ is a hit with the youngsters!

Accessible. And for those who need accessible accommodation, we’ve got that covered too because the self-contained, ground floor property is ideal for the less mobile thanks to its wide corridors.

Hygge at Hollies Barn

The Danish phenomenon (pronounced hue-guh) simply requires being present and recognising a moment that feels so cosy, charming, special or nice that you just have to name it. An evening in with friends where you’re simply enjoying everyone’s company – “Hygge is being aware of a good moment whether it’s simple or special.”

We all know that having a good time with people we love makes us happy. But when was the last time you sat around a big table with all of your nearest and dearest and shared stories until the small hours? Let your Hollies Barn break be the time to do this. We’ll supply the large dining table, cosy fire, open-plan living area and hot tub, you bring your family and friends.

Hollies Barn is just outside the historic market town of Nantwich, a paradise for foodies and fans of independent shops. By day, take a wander around the streets and you’ll be spoiled for choice among the cafes, restaurants, pubs, boutiques and markets. The vibrant small town is a destination in itself and a secret gem in Cheshire. In the evening you’ll find bustling bars and restaurants as people travel from all over to enjoy a meal out with friends and family, or to make the most of the welcoming town’s nightlife.

You could even tie in your break with one of the many events that take place in Nantwich throughout the year. Among the most popular is the toe-tappingly brilliant Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music Festival. Or perhaps you fancy the Nantwich Show, which includes the International Cheese Awards, or the renowned Nantwich Food Festival. For a calendar of local events, click here.

You can’t get much more central than our position in the beautiful South Cheshire countryside, an ideal spot if you’re meeting up with friends or relatives who live at different ends of the UK.
