Facts about Self-Catering Holidays in Hollington


If you enjoy keeping active on a self-catering break you may want to do all or parts of the long distance Bonnie Prince Charlie Walk (over 17 miles long in total), it takes in gorgeous countryside and interesting landmarks. Starting in the nearby market town of Ashbourne which is around 6 miles away, the route finishes in Derby. This walk follows the route that Bonnie Prince Charlie took during his historic march of 1745.

Ashbourne is well worth a visit whilst enjoying a cottage holiday in Hollington. Its cobbled alleys, shops, restaurants and market are full of character in addition to some splendid, well-preserved Georgian buildings. For a complete contrast, families are just a short drive from all the fun of the fare at Alton Towers. This popular theme park has rides for every age group plus a rather fun water park. You can also relax at the spa where you can choose from a range of treatments.

Hollington is also close to the town of Uttoxeter. There you can browse the outdoor markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Uttoxeter is well known for its National Hunt racecourse, which offers fine dining, family fun events and packages in addition to the best racing. If you’re more into local history, the Uttoxeter Heritage Centre houses displays in a 17th century, timber-framed building. If you want to explore another fine example of an unspoilt Derbyshire village, Longford is nearby and one of its most attractive features is the village church of St. Chad’s.

If after spending all that time in the country on your cottage break you crave for the amenities of a modern city with historic landmarks, it’s just a short drive to Derby. Derby Cathedral is well worth a visit and is known for its nesting peregrine falcons in the tower. Derby Industrial Museum and Art Gallery contains artwork by important artists, Royal Crown Derby porcelain and artefacts from the worlds of geology and archaeology.

When enjoying a country cottage holiday or rural retreat stay in Hollington, the towns, villages and countryside of Derbyshire are your playground and there is something appealing at every turn.
