“We were two adults with our 10-year-old daughter and a small dog. We had a lovely, comfortable stay. Cottage is in a perfect location close to loads of shops, cafes, pubs, and restaurants. The cottage had everything we needed, plus it was very cosy and warm. Angela was very helpful, friendly, and thorough at check-in. There was also a delightful welcome hamper on arrival. We highly recommend Angela's cottage and would definitely stay again.”


“Lovely stay. Luxury feel to the cottage and a unique location for exploring the surrounding areas and town. Really close to everything, but will avoid driving up the driveway in future. Many thanks.”


 “We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. It is immaculate and is right in the centre of Holmfirth; great for popping to the local shops and restaurants. The cottage is beautiful and Angela had set it up so thoughtfully to make us feel welcome - thank you for the lovely hamper and cake! I would highly recommend a stay here for a thoroughly relaxing break.”


“Angela, the host, has put in so much to make this cottage extra special. She really goes that extra mile. The house is immaculate. The towels are luxurious, the kitchen has everything you need, the linen is lovely, the soaps are Molton Brown™, the welcome hamper is special, and there are treats in the fridge and freezer. I think it is safe to say first-rate, five stars!”


“My friends and I recently stayed at Shelduck for a girls' weekend away and absolutely loved the property. Angela is a very welcoming and helpful host and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. We especially loved the extra touches i.e. our welcome hamper and spotting ourselves in duck form around the kitchen! Everything we needed was so conveniently located from the cottage, and we were not short of information on things to do and places to visit nearby. It is clear from staying at this property that Angela takes a lot of pride in her accommodation, and it was the perfect place for us to get together for a relaxing break.”


“Lovely cottage and a lovely village. The house was very well-presented and we were made welcome. Plenty of walks around the place too. Wish we could have stayed longer to explore more. Thanks again for letting us stay here”


“Angela was there to welcome us even though we were delayed by traffic. She was meticulous at going through all the rooms, how to work equipment, and showing us where everything was. The property was beautifully decorated and appointed, and Angela had left a lovely welcome pack, including homemade cakes and even some children's yoghourts and colouring books for my grandson. Very much appreciated - especially the lovely cakes!”
