Our team are intrinsically what makes The Hollies so successful. They are hard working, passionate, reliable and enthusiastic. Without the team, The Hollies would not be what it is today. It is the team’s passion and commitment that helps to drive the business forward. The products we choose are the best and of the highest quality. The Forest Lodges we have built are of 5 star standard and luxurious. The Coffee Shops and Restaurant serves the tastiest and freshest food. However none of this can stand alone; it is the people behind the product that make The Hollies.
Hilary Cowap says, “The Hollies has evolved so much since 1959, but what has never changed is all the hard work and dedication that goes into the business. Now not just from the family, but from our wonderful team.”
The Hollies Forest Lodges
The Hollies Forest Lodges are situated at our original Little Budworth site in Cheshire. Nestled in the heart of the Cheshire countryside within a pine forest setting, the emphasis of your stay is on relaxation and luxury. All of our five Lodges are decorated to the highest standard and beautifully equipped with everything you need to truly make it a getaway to remember. We have two Lodges that sleep up to 4 guests, and 3 Lodges that sleep up to 6 guests.
32 by The Hollies
Our newest venture, 32 by The Hollies, on Tarporley High Street is a boutique hotel, restaurant and bar. Enjoy contemporary comfort in the heart of Cheshire in one of the 5 individually designed rooms named after Phil and Ed’s school houses: Delamere, Aldersey, Tollemache, Arderne and Egerton. All the ingredients used in the menus reflect the fabulous local produce of Cheshire and are sourced from our farm shop, Butchery and Delicatessen.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of Marketing Cheshire’s prestigious Annual Awards, which recognises excellence and outstanding achievement by local businesses and individuals working in Cheshire’s visitor economy, now worth over £3.5 billion. The winners will be announced at a glittering award ceremony on Thursday 3rd October at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa in Knutsford. The event last year attracted over 300 guests representing Cheshire’s top attractions, hotels and businesses.
Mark Livesey, Chief Executive, Marketing Cheshire, said: “There are 16 categories in this year’s Award Ceremony, including new awards for Camping, Glamping and Holiday Park of the Year and Pub of the Year. As always, competition has been fierce because Cheshire is home to nationally recognised tourist brands and world class tourism professionals. The Annual Award Ceremony is a great way to recognise and celebrate achievements in the Cheshire’s visitor economy.”
