“Attention to detail”
Reviewed February 25, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

It is attention to detail that sets Keepers Cottage above other holiday cottages. This was a much needed break and the ambience of this place plus the setting was the tonic we needed. Sheldon is very well situated for walking and visiting the area. It was so refreshing to visit the Cock and Pullet pub and still find locals as well as visitors enjoying the atmosphere and good food. It's certainly top of the list for a revisit.

“Great cottage in a good location 😊”
Reviewed February 20, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Keepers Cottage was an ideal base for exploring the Dales, there were some lovely walks that we did from cottage it was great not to have to use our car.
The cottage itself was superb very warm and cosy with a very well equipped little kitchen, everything you needed.
A delicious cake and fresh eggs when we arrived was a really lovely touch !
The bathroom had a good shower and lovely towels and robes if you required them.
We had no complaints and would definitely return

“REALLY LOVELY!!!!”
Reviewed February 2, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The cottage and its surroundings are just lovely. Everything you could wish for has been included in this cosy cottage. I cannot stress how much we have enjoyed our stay at Keepers and would definitely recommend anyone to come here and see for themselves, just how gorgeous it is....

“Keepers Cottage was a wonderful cosy cottage well worth a trip here”
Reviewed November 22, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We have just spent 3 great days here. Cottage is lovely, so warm and cosy with everything possible provided including lovely extras being provided including dressing gowns, towels and hairdryer.
Stunning setting, waking up to uninterrupted views of the peak district with friendly neighbours (two miniature Shetland ponies) peeping over the fence at you!
Village setting is very pretty, everyone friendly, hope to be back again. Lindsey was an exceptional host.

“a little haven”
Reviewed November 21, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

another lovely week in our very cosy cottage.Welcomed again with fresh eggs,milk and a fresh sponge cake much enjoyed.We had afternoons sat on the patio sipping wine, watching the animals in the paddock and looking over the White dale, so quiet. Evenings sat indoors with the wood burner keeping us very cosy after a good meal at the pub across the street just idyllic.
many thanks Ann and Colin
