Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend a stay here. The b&b is marketed as luxury, which it really is not. The site is still under development and does not have any of the spa/treatment rooms. Our room also needed some TLC, water stains around the window and splash back from the tea and coffee area. The room was also quite small as... More

Dear Kefalonia_14, Whilst we are delighted that you found our location pleasing and enjoyed the lovely local walks, we are saddened by other aspects of your review here on Trip Advisor. As we discussed when you checked out, it is difficult for any establishment when a customer makes complaints retrospectively, as it deprives one of the opportunity to put things... More

Be aware there is extensive building works directly behind the property. Bitterly disappointed with the food, we booked for dinner in advance, on the first night we were offered Tofu & rice it was the only option we politely refused and went to the pub across the road which gave us a choice of 4 options. Breakfast the next day... More

We were to attend a wedding in Baslow but left it a bit late to book accommodation. We struggled to get anywhere close the venue so ended up booking the last two rooms at Sheldon's Luxury Retreat. After staying there, I'm really glad we didn't find anywhere else. After we booked, I found out that Sheldon's Luxury Retreat is a... More

On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome and offered wonderful friendly hospitality which continued throughout the stay. The building looks picture postcard English village with its cottage proportions and attractive laid out garden area to the front leading to the individual and very private feeling rooms. The room (The Devonshire) was warm and spotlessly clean, with simple... More

We stay in several b&bs a year, preferably vegetarian, but that's not always possible, so were delighted to find a vege b&b in an area we wanted to visit/walk in - and it described itself as luxury - great. If it had simply said vege B&B and charged a bit less I would have been writing a much more positive... More

We stayed in the Chatsworth Room for 4 nights, our room was beautifully furnished with a really comfy bed and was spotlessly clean. We were warmly welcomed by Francoise, who had only been working at the B&B for a few weeks, but made us feel at home and looked after us well - she cooks a delicious veggie breakfast! Good... More
