“Thank you for allowing us a sneak preview stay at Water’s Edge, Rachel and Stacey. It is a superb place and yes, the view(s) are as stunning as your photos show. The cottage is of a very high specification, has beautiful views, is very peaceful and tranquil- we would have loved to stay longer and will be back and recommending it to our friends. We wish you every success in your venture. Following our stay and recommendation, we now have friends now booked to come and stay with you in September. 🙂”

”Excellent accommodation. Stayed at Shepherds Nook 3 of us with dog. All mod cons provided, lovely welcome pack with beers and biscuits, cage with rug provided for dog. Great location remote but close enough to places for walking and cycling. We would recommend and will come back again”

“Just home from 3 nights in the lovely Shepherds Nook. What a beautiful cottage, so cosy but with every amenity you could need. The cottages are in a great secluded spot but close enough to local walks and a short drive into Holmfirth. Would highly recommend”

“Thank you so much for a wonderfully relaxing stay at Waters Edge last week. We were able to achieve the perfect mix of peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings along with the ability to explore some of the local attractions. The cottage itself is fabulous, very comfortable home from home, with everything that could ever be needed for the perfect staycation”

I enjoyed a lovely stay at Water’s Edge. The cottage has been renovated to such a high standard, and we were so comfortable for the time we were there. Really appreciated the welcome pack, and the cottage kitchen was really well equipped. Views from all around the cottage were fantastic, and nearby walks also had amazing views. WiFi connection was good too!”

We’d both just like to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would like to thank you and your husband very much! After a long journey from London, the welcome pack of beers, biscuits etc.. Went down a treat! Thank you also for answering all our queries and being there where we needed the help.We also both thought the design of the open space living room/kitchen was perfect and obviously thought out very well when building your new cottages. Both bedrooms with en suite showers/bath was also perfect! The shower room was particularly very spacious, and the power shower was so good that you often stayed in longer than usual. Infact the cottage had all the appliances that you needed. There is not more that we could have asked for!!? If I was to be a bit picky for wanting the overall stay to be even more perfect, then I’d would say that it was a shame that there wasn’t a back door in the living room. Again, thank you very much and best luck for the future!

Hi 🙂 just wanted to leave a review of our amazing stay in Shepherd’s Nook from the 14th – 18th. Firstly – wow! What a gorgeous little cottage, possibly the best equipped we have ever stayed in – the attention to detail with appliances (etc!) meant we had literally everything we needed and felt more like we were staying in someone’s house rather than holiday accommodation. The bed was super comfy and the shower scored an easy 11/10 from both of us – amazing!! The cottage is also really well situated – only a 10 minute drive from holmfirth, and so close to some amazing walks – not only the trans-pennine trail but also honeypot areas in the Peaks, such as the Howden and Ladybower reservoirs. Our cocker spaniel also loved her stay and felt at home in her crate! Would definitely recommend staying here and will be looking to re-book in the future so we can explore the area even further. Thank you so much – great job!

‘We’ve had a lovely break away in this beautiful part of South Yorkshire. We were pleased that we were able to find accommodation at such short notice once we heard the news about entering tier 3. Thank you Rachel and Stacey, your accommodation is stunning. We stayed in the Shephards Nook, lovely and cosy with a sophisticated farm style. Beautiful views of the moorland and reservoir. The accommodation was spotless and have everything that we needed. Our Black Lab loved it too. Amazing place, in the rural county of South Yorkshire, what a hidden treasure. Thanks again, we had a fabulous stay.’ T. Drew, October 2020

‘The most comfortable and cosy cottage we could have wished for. Booked Water’s Edge and it was such a treat. The kitchen was perfect and well equipped. Loved looking out to the reservoir from the lounge. The bed was super comfy and everything was just perfect for our short birthday break’ F. Kaye, November 2020

‘We stayed in Shepherds Nook cottage for a week with our 6 month old puppy. Was a lovely cottage, in a great location. Views were breath taking. Cottage exceeded our expectations, had everything you need and more in the kitchen and furnished to a very high standard’ J Humphreys, October 2020
