Amazing holiday and the little extras left by the owners was such a lovely gesture. Will definitely be going back.

Stayed in this lovely cottage on 2nd October for the weekend. We arrived to a lovely hamper filled with treats, the fridge had orange juice, milk and eggs & we also had little Ben and Jerry’s ice cream in the freezer. The cottage was clean from top to bottom. The beds were really comfy! We paid extra for the hot tub, again clean and heated to the correct temperature. The cottage is situated in the town so shops/restaurants are only a short walk away. Angela made us feel very welcome and went out of her way to add little extras to make our stay extra special. I would 100% recommend this cottage and would stay again.

There are lots of cafes restaurants and pubs near by.The cottage is kept immaculate and you have use of a hot tub in the garden.The owners cant do enough for you and left us a lovely hamper full of goods.The bedrooms are beautiful and you cant hear any noise from inside the cottage. I'm definitely going back.

Gorgeous unique cottage right in the middle of Holmsfirth. Host incredibly helpful and our stay was exactly what we hoped for. There were 2 things we’d have liked to know before we went although didn’t affect our stay at all. 1. Dogs must stay in the kitchen which is one area on lower ground floor. Therefore no access to garden or living areas. 2. Parking in Holmfirth is busy at the weekends and finding a space nearby took a little work. The drive up to the cottage isn’t for everyone so we did about 6 trips up the lane to carry everything


Absolutely perfect.

The cottage was lovely and in a perfect location

Alison 21/06/2021

We had a fantastic stay at Shelduck. On arrival we had a lovely hamper and the cottage was lovely and clean, the hot tub was an added bonus which was also kept clean. The added touches like the robes, Molton brown products and ice cream in the freezer were great little extras. Everything was in walking distance which was great, lovely pubs and so much choice. If I had to pick at anything it would of been the parking we found it hard to find somewhere to leave the car for 4 days without returning to it, but we knew this about the parking before booking. Overall I would certainly recommend.

Delightful cottage spread over three floors. Lovely, warm welcome with lots of little touches to make it special (liked the named ducks). Well situated in the centre of Holmfirth, an adventure finding it, but honestly the view across the roof tops is almost Italian! It was up a steep, short hill and we had to get bags up from the car park, fine for us as fit family but others may struggle. But overall an absolutely delightful stay.

Neil 27/08/2021

Full of little extra comforts which makes the whole experience special. All of us rated it more highly than the cottages other members of the family were staying in locally, even down to the better quality of the welcome pack at Shelduck. Would recommend to others xx
