Shelduck cottage is a unique quirky period double fronted detached cottage hidden away in a private square a stones throw from the centre of the charming village of Holmfirth on the edge of the semi-wild dark Peak District National Park.
It is only accessible up a steep cobbled slope that only leads to the four houses in the square. It is a quiet hidden oasis only two minutes steep climb from the centre of the village.
It has a spacious master bedroom with a King size four poster bed and a multi fuel stove in a wonderful stone fireplace with two windows out to the private garden. Bedroom two has a king size bed and a window out to the garden. Bedroom three has a double bed and a window overlooking the garden, the bed is against the wall, so there is no room to walk around the left hand side of it. The cottage sleeps six in three bedrooms. We also have two other cottages that sleep four/three each.
The newly updated main bathroom runs the full width of the cottage and has a deep roll top slipper bath and period sanitary wear and panelling. The newly installed shower room has a powerful Invincible rain shower with period sanitary wear and panelling.
The newly installed kitchen has a new dishwasher, fridge, microwave and cooker, toaster and kettle as well as an electric stove in the fireplace, a large kitchen table and a window seat.
The sitting room has a fireplace with an electric stove, dual aspect windows and two comfortable sofas. It has a smart tv and DVD player with iPlayer, ITV player, Netflix and guests can access their own Amazon accounts.
All the furniture is classic solid wood with tongue and groove joints. There is free unlimited broadband and wi-fi. There is also a useful storage room for bikes and prams etc, this room also has a large fridge freezer. There is also a boiler room which has a small washing machine.
The outside space includes a private hot tub (additional costs apply) in the garden with a table and chairs and a BBQ on request (for a small additional cost).

We enjoyed a lovely family time away in the cottage. Bliss to be able to chill at the kitchen table chatting and enjoy the views. The hot tub in the beautiful garden was a real bonus to our time away.
The cottage has all you need to enjoy a relaxing time. It is a great location to wander into Holmfirth or explore further the surrounding stunning countryside.
Angela is an amazing host, providing all information needed and a generous welcome basket full of treats.
