“Ideal Peak District Hideaway.”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This lovely, comfortable and well appointed holiday cottage is set in the typical peak district village of Sheldon, with a great little pub, with good food, and friendly staff. The cottage although small is ideal for a couple, and has everything you need. It is very clean, and well decorated, and everything works as it should. It was also a nice surprise on arrival to find all the extra little touches that make you feel welcome. Such as a homemade cake, fresh eggs, and milk. In short we know that when we visit the Peak District next, where we would like to stay.

“Rural England at its Best”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This beautiful cottage located in the small village of Sheldon in Derbyshire was perfect for my wife and I to relax for several days. It was near Bakewell and many of the major sights in the southern area of the Peak District. The host/owner, Lindsey welcomed us warmly and helped us get settled. The cottage was fully equipped with everything a guest would need, and the local pub was a short walk away for a pint and an evening meal. The peacefulness of Sheldon: its public footpaths, birds, wildflowers, and views of the hills made our stay memorable.
