We welcome two well behaved dogs at Townend Holiday Cottage, free of charge and are sure that they will enjoy the fabulous walks in Sheldon and the surrounding countryside. We do ask that they are kept downstairs and off the furniture. Please note that the patio and parking areas are not fully enclosed. There is a gate at the end of the driveway but this is often kept open. If this is an issue, please get in touch with me prior to your stay to discuss. Thank you.

This charming cottage was perfect for a cosy stay in the peaks. It had everything we needed, it was warm and full of character. We arrived to a home baked cake which was delicious and a great addition! Would love to stay again
