I wanted to book a weekend away and found Keepers Cottage at a reasonable price, in the countryside and with a local pub. The stay went above my expectations. Before arriving I was sent instructions on how to find the cottage which made it really easy - the key was in the door when we arrived so there was no hassle of a 'check in'. I loved that there were chickens and two ponies in front of the cottage, great for 'people' watching.
The pub over the road was a proper old school local pub but it served okay food and cheap booze. There was everything we would need for the weekend in the cottage, towels, coffee, tea, eggs and milk plus a homemade cake.
We walked into Bakewell one day and did the Sheldon Walk another, the walk consisted of following some instructions on a laminated piece of paper which got a bit confusing at times but was relatively easy to follow and was a nice walk. It took around 2.5 hours in total and we stopped off for ice cream!
I'd definitely look to stay here again.
What more can be said that has not already been said. A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Lyndsey you have thought of everything! Enjoyed a lovely meal in the local pub The Cock and Pullett and did some great walks including the Monsal Trail, Chatsworth area, Mam Tor and Magpie mine and Sheldon area. The lemon drizzle cake, fresh eggs and milk were gratefully received too. Thank you we will be back!
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.
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
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....
