About Mrs Vivienne Mills
Having run my holiday cottage successfully now for 34 years, I have gained many new friends through returning visitors to the cottage. I am now semi-retired and enjoy living in Stainforth.
Mrs Vivienne Mills purchased this cottage in 1986
Why Mrs Vivienne Mills chose Craven District
I moved to Stainforth in the Yorkshire Dales 36 years ago and loved the area so much I decided to buy a cottage in the village and offer it as a holiday cottage to holidaymakers so they could appreciate the wonderful scenery and numerous walks in the surrounding countryside. Stainforth is easily accessible and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of a busy town. It also provides a perfect base for touring the Yorkshire Dales and visiting the Lake District.
What makes this cottage unique
2 Hollies Cottages is completely pet friendly to enable visitors to take advantage of all the lovely local walks with their pets. It has all amenities within 3 miles.
