Luxury holiday cottage with spacious living areas , large enclosed garden and south facing conservatory also benefits from a games room and wi-fi.

This luxurious holiday cottage is spacious, yet intimate, and commands beautiful views of the countryside surrounding the peaceful village of Sheldon, only 3 miles from the market town of Bakewell. The oldest part of the cottage dates from 1800 and has been converted skilfully into a living room with tasteful furnishings, original beams, exposed stone walls and a large fireplace with a multi-fuel burner. There is a large dining area adjacent to the living room and a kitchen which leads into a south-facing conservatory, ideal for breakfast and relaxing. There is a downstairs toilet and utility area. Upstairs has three large double bedrooms (two with en-suite showers) and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a 6ft zip and link bed which can be used as a double bed or two single beds. The cottage has Sky TV and wi-fi internet access. Only a few steps from the main cottage is a games room and studio apartment. The large, heated games room has a pool table and table tennis table as well as a drying room for wet clothes and boots. Above the games room is the studio with sitting room and a double bedroom with en-suite. The sitting room has a sofa bed (for alternative sleeping only) and a TV. The cottage stands in an enclosed garden which has driveway parking for four vehicles, flower beds and two lawns. The larger lawn overlooks the nearby fields and hills, and is ideal for ball games. It adjoins a stone-flagged patio area with a built-in barbecue and outside table and chairs. Sheldon has a pub close to the cottage which is friendly and provides good food. The village is within easy reach of Bakewell and Ashford-on-the-Water, and is an excellent starting point for walking, exploring the countryside and visiting Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, The Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath, the caves around Castleton and many other attractions in the Peak District.

    A lovely, warm well equipped cottage. Delightful location. It was great to be able to do lovely walks straight from the door. We had a lunch party for family from surrounding counties while we were there, and it was great to have a really well equipped kitchen to facilitate that. Living areas very spacious. A modern feel in terms of comfort but a charming traditional environment. We’ll be back.

    Everything about the accommodation and location was great. Easy access to Bakewell, Buxton, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth as well as beautiful walks and a great pub a few doors away where the food was excellent. The welcome pack on arrival was a nice surprise and all of the bedrooms are well presented. The kitchen is very well equipped, the lounge is big yet cosy and the walled garden is stunning.

    Beautiful cottage in a picturesque village. Great to have so many bathrooms / toilets etc. for larger groups. Very practical house for two dogs, stone floor in conservatory and kitchen and a lovely, secure, enclosed garden. Annexe was great (for slightly shorter people!) but needed very simple tea / coffee making facilities for added convenience. The local pub was dog friendly and produced tasty, home cooked food at a very reasonable price. Central for many of the outstanding places the Peak District has to offer.

    An extremely well maintained property in a quiet and interesting area. Delightful sunny gardens with good rural views. Plenty of activities within a short drive or cycle ride from the house, and several good footpaths linking to the Derbyshire dales.
