Sheldon Barn and Sheldon Cottage
Jane, Eric, Becca & Marc - Lincolnshire New Year 2011

We have had a perfect Ne3w Year's holiday.  We have never stayed anywhere with some many "added extras".  The Barn is immaculate, so cosy, lots of lighting and mirrors which we love.  Beautiful linen and everything you can think of in the kitchen. Welcome gifts were fabulous, reallyu appreciated the warming tray and logs and xmas trees.  Thaks for trusting us whilst you were away.  We will definately be back and look forward to meeting you.

Steve, Jane and Nat - Kent 2012

Thank you again for your warm welcome, gifts and the comfort and cleanliness of the Barn.  We've just celebrated our 20th Anniversary which means it is 20 years since our first visit here.  We look foward to many more visits before we hit 40years!!!!!!

Back again with reinforcements! We took over the Barn and the Cottage and have had a lovely family holiday with our mutual children and grandchildren.  Evrything here is so good - the best holiday property we stay in!  Thank you for all the lovely eggs, cake, break and milk.  It is a pleasure being here in this lovely part of the owrld.  See you again next year.


Peter and Carolyn - Northamtonshire 2008

Lovely cottage, well equipped.  All home comforts from the microwave to the washing machine; the cake was lovely, the eggs and marmalade super and the girls both enjoyed their welcome Bonio's.  Weather could have been better, but the cosy cottage, made coming back after a long walk very welcoming and warm.  Stephen and Louise were great hosts welcoming when we first arrived and were available if needed but inobtrusive for the rest of the weeks stay.  Would highly recommend this cottage to our friends.

Terry, Amanda, Phoebe, Alaina, Connie and dog - Bromsgrove 2008

Wod! We have fallen in love with this part of the world! You must visit Lathkill Dale trail, Haddon Hall and the Monsal Trail (if you are feeling fit, follow the footpath signs that take you off the main trail, you'll be well rewarded).  We have had such and amazing time,and will be back again soon.  Oh, and the ginger cake Louise made was out of this world!  The cottage is bautiful and Monyash is perfectly placed and idyllic.  Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
