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

I have been away several time this year and Sheldon's Retreat has certainly out shone all of them. The hospitality received from both management and staff was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and they were always there on hand to help.

The B&B is in a lovely village with an excellent pub. It is/was clearly work in progress in that the property was being done up and was rather like a building site. We stayed for 2 nights with some friends from NZ - our room was fine but theirs had no hot water to have a shower on either night... More

We booked this B&B for two nights at the last minute as we were on a field trip and sadly did not read the reviews. We found out the hard way! Paid £95.00 a night and described as luxury. Anyone who has experienced a luxury B&B will know that this is not one of them. Had to pay in advance... More

Our disappointment started when we parked and saw the three breeze-block barns behind the house.We were expecting a lovely garden with views of the Peaks,somewhere to stroll in our "luxury retreat".
