Location description from owner

The England region

The Peak District is an upland area in central and northern England, It offers all year round activities and events for people of every age. For lovers of the outdoors, there are around 1,600 miles of footpaths across stunning scenery. Discover limestone dales full of rare wild flowers, stroll along trout filled rivers or watch skylarks soaring above heather clad moors. Walking, bird watching, caving, rock climbing, potholing, fishing, sailing, gliding and cycling are just some of the activities available.

For those interested in history, there are a number of stately homes to visit such as Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Eyam Hall, all of which offer a range of cultural activities throughout the year.

Visit the prehistoric sites of Arbor Low and Cresswell Crags, step back in time at The National Tramway Museum or take a ride on a steam train at Peak Rail. Discover the Norman castle and stunning caves in Castlelton, iron age settlements above Hathersage and the area's lead mining and industrial heritage sites.
Magpie Mines are just 5 minutes walk away from the cottage.

Ashford-in-the-Water

The local towns of Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock Bath, each famous in its own right, offer culture, shopping, restaurants and traditional markets and if you still have energy, there is always the famous theme park of Alton Towers.

The beautiful village of Sheldon lies near the heart of the Peak District, three miles from the bustling market town of Bakewell, five miles from Buxton, famous for its spa and waters,and less than 15 miles from Sheffield.

Townend Cottage looks onto the village greens. The Cock and Pullet is well known for the quality of its beer and catering and Ashford in the Water village shops provide essential provisions, and post office facilities.

There are excellent walks from the door, especially down Deep Dale to reach the River Wye or down Lathkill Dale and Cressbrook Dales down to Monsal Dale and Monsal Head. Cressbrook Dale and Tansley Dale are famous for their wild flowers, as are several other local dales.

In the summer, Ashford in the Water and many other local villages create unique well dressings from flower petals. And we have our very own Sheldon Day, including a Poultry show and Dog show.

At Christmas time, the area hosts a range of Christmas activities, such as carols in the caves at Castleton, music by local brass bands, events at nearby Chatsworth House, Xmas markets and whole villages dressed with Christmas lights..

A full range of up to date tourist information is available in the cottage for your use.

“Perfect place for a peaceful getaway”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2014

We had a lovely time at Townend Cottage and can't rate it highly enough - it was really well equipped, immaculately clean, comfortable and had a lovely feel. The welcome pack with local eggs was a lovely touch! Sheldon is a lovely village - really peaceful with a great local pub, and very close to Bakewell, which is a lovely place to visit for the day. The cottage is well situated if you like walking or cycling, or just like being in the great outdoors. Thanks for a lovely break!

This is the most delightful holiday cottage I have ever stayed in, it is clean, cosy, picture perfect!! the location is fantastic, with a lovely quaint little pub in the village, which serves real ale and home cooked food. We enjoyed wonderful walk after wonderful walk straight from the the cottage door. Such beautiful countryside and local scenery. And then there was the CAKE! Wow!!! what a treat!. Eggs from Lindsey's own free range hens, and lots of little extras all around the cottage. And a very very comfy king size bed. I would highly recommend this cottage to everyone! Thank you, and we can't wait to return!!!

“Delightful Cosy Townend Cottage”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2012

This cottage was delightful, warm, spotlessly clean and comfortable with every gadget you could ask for. We had terrible weather and to be able to come back to the warmth and comfort was lovely. Lindsey had a lovely cake waiting for us with milk and eggs and extras such as shampoo, conditioner etc in a small pack. There was a dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, every utensil mentionable even a hot water bottle and sewing kit should you need it. The cottage is only small but typical of surrounding buildings but totally adequate for a lovely stay. The pub is just over the road, so quaint and friendly, we loved it. The whole stay was wonderful.

“A peaceful holiday retreat in a lovely Peakland village”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2011

A return visit to Townend Cottage, which certainly did not disappoint. The cottage is very well appointed and equipped and a perfect base for exploring the Peaks. There are many wonderful walks in the vicinity, especially since the tunnels have been opened on the Monsal Trail, and walks along the railway and return along the Wye are highly recommended. It is lovely to sit outside and soak up the atmosphere after a day's walking and the thoughtful touches of the delicious cake, milk, eggs, toiletries and bath robes are much appreciated. Already looking forward to our next visit

“lovely clean compact stone cottage”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2011

Experienced a first rate friendly helpful service from the owners who live next door. Always there if needed but never intrusive Townend Cottage is a very welcoming compact property built of local stone & with ample parking. It's location is ideally situated for walkers & motorists alike with many pretty villages & towns scattered about it within easy reach. The surrounding countryside is quite beautiful. The bedroom is really cosy. The whole property was spotlessly clean. Ample kitchen utensils were provided. Lovely personal touches like toiletries added the finishing factor. There was a large welcoming homemade Victoria sponge awaiting our arrival. With a bit of restraint this could last the week & leave a slice or two for the drive home ! . We were a little apprehensive about the size of the cottage initially but it proved adequate The only thing missing is a private outside rear sitting area..& maybe one or two extra curtains. But..........!!!
