  • "The cottage was lovely very clean."

    However the sofa could do with being a three seater, I feel that would have made it slightly more comfortable downstairs. Can not complain about up stairs the bedroom was lovely and the bed very comfortable. There was no place to let the dog out either fortunately we had a lovely neighbour who allowed us to let our dog in her garden.

    Thank you for your feedback, we will be adding an additional armchair to fit alongside the sofa and rocking chair. With regards dogs, you have given us something to consider ... thank you for your comments they are much appreciated Property Owner

  • "8 Carr House Cottage is situated in a quiet position with views of the distant moors."

    Everything was just right, clean and very comfortable with all of the requirements for a holiday stay. The house gives easy access to many local places of interest, for example Haworth and Hebden Bridge, great if you are a walker, Bradford, Leeds and other towns that may be of interest. For a bit further afield the Yorkshire Dales are not too far for a days' outing. I would highly recommend this lovely little home.

    thank you so much for your lovely feedback, we are so please that you enjoyed our little cottage x Property Owner

The property

Resting in the quaint village of Shelf, just a short drive from neighbouring Halifax in West Yorkshire, you can find the lovely, one-bedroom holiday home of 8 Carr House Road.

With off-road parking for one car, an enclosed patio with outdoor seating, and a collection of well-appointed interiors, this charming property welcomes a couple seeking relaxing getaway just north of the brilliant Peak District National Park.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself comfortable in your delightful new dwelling, where you will find an array of tastefully-presented living spaces.

A fully-equipped kitchen welcomes you and your loved one to rustle up delicious home-cooked dinners that can be savoured at the dining table, or alfresco in the rear patio as you raise a glass of tipple to toast your getaway.

When it’s time to unwind, head indoors and take a seat on the plush leather sofa in the sitting room, where you can delight in a film marathon on the Smart TV as an elegant gas fire keeps the room warm and toasty!

When it's time for bed, head upstairs to indulge with a soak in the bath before you finally catch your precious rest in an inviting double bedroom.

If you can tear yourself from your tranquil new abode, set out on foot to explore your local area.

In Shelf, a brief stroll will bring you to your nearest supermarket, Lidl, where you can stock up on essentials, whilst a tasty pub lunch can be tucked into at The Bottomleys Arms or the Duke of York.

You can also enjoy a peaceful dog walk through Shelf Hall Park or even pick up some local baked goods from The Crusty Pie Company to enjoy back at your accommodation.

For a full day out, hop in the car and head into Halifax, a bustling town housing the serene grounds of People's Park, Manor Heath Park, and Shibden Park, as well as the historic property of Shibden Hall.

You’ll also find the magnificent botanical garden of the Manor Heath Jungle Experience, whilst some evening entertainment can be had at the Vue Cinema Halifax or the Victoria Theatre.

Whatever you choose to do during your next stay in West Yorkshire, do it from the wonderful base of 8 Carr House Road.
