“Wonderful, cosy cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at this ideal cosy cottage. It was extremely well equipped, and the owner provided some milk, eggs and a delicious cake!. It was in a quiet location, with a pub close by. There were walks from the door, and plenty of places to visit close by.

“Perfect country cottage”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This is an absolutely lovely cottage. It has everything you could every need and feels very cosy and homely. It's close to Chatsworth House which we visited and the pubs of Bakewell are excellent.

The hostess couldn't have been kinder or more thoughtful. I can't recommend this cottage enough, we had an absolutely perfect weekend.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed 4 nights mid March and did lots of walking. The cottage was extremely comfortable and well-equipped and Sheldon was a lovely quiet village with a nice pub. Will certainly return for more of the same! Highly recommended.

“Peaceful Country Getaway complete with cake!”
Reviewed 19 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Lovely cottage in a very idyllic small village in the Peak District, 30 seconds walk from the village pub which was buzzing with locals and had good pub grub type food. The cottage's interior actually looks better in reality then it does in the photos. Lindsey was very helpful and made a victoria sponge for us and supplied fresh eggs and milk on arrival which was a really nice touch. The cottage was clean, warm and comfortable and had all the utensils you need to cook a meal. I thought it was in a perfect location for the Peak District - not too far away from anywhere, although you'd need a car unless you just wanted to do walks close by. Recommend hiring biles along the Monsal trail! Would go again!

“Townend Cottage brilliant”
Reviewed 29 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Booked at very short notice (2 days) cottage was spotless and the welcome pack a very nice touch. Everything seems to been thought of to make the stay here as comfortable as possible from selection of dvd's, books and games something for most tastes to everything you need to cook a full meal. Sheldon is very quite and the local pub the Cock and Pullet serves very nice food and beer. We hope to return again in better weather it is the ideal place for a break away from it all.
