We found Sheldon Cottage on the internet mainly due to its stand alone website which provided lots of useful information. The cottage has many features such as washing machine, dishwasher, dryer etc and also use of a communal DVD library and boot drying room which was an added bonus. The location is also ideal being close to Bakewell and Buxton with a good pub in the village serving large portions of food.
The only slight niggles we had were no soap in the toilets for washing hands, the slice of cake which was left for us on arrival which was a nice thought but at that size probably not worth bothering. The biggest gripe was a week after returning from the cottage being accused (in quite a rude manner) of taking the keys before the owner had checked with others running the property.
The departure time of 10am also seemed a little early, especially as it apppeared no one else was booked in for use after us.
