This is a delightfully comfortable place to stay. The rooms are pretty-nearly perfect; comfortable beds, nicely furnished and spotless, but the character of this old building is still preserved. The bathrooms are excellent. There are some great extra touches - a lounge for residents, and a garden. Above all though, we really felt welcomed and wanted as guests throughout our... More

I live in hotels half the time - so it was nice to have hosts who made the extra effort to look after us - a bit like being at a five star hotel but without the sticker shock. As a foreigner - I must say the English Breakfast was the first one I have had in a long time... More

You could not ask for more. Steve & Julie are perfect hosts - from welcoming you with tea & home-made cake in the garden to providing a torch to help guide you along country roads at night after a visit to the local pub. Accommodation is wonderful – beautifully restored rooms full of character and spotlessly clean. Location is fantastic... More

Just returned from a wonderful weekend stay at the Old Shoulder of Mutton. Best B & B I have ever stayed in. Steven and Julie are such warm hospitable hosts- the accommodation is immaculately presented: an imaginative restoration of an old village pub. Breakfasts were very tasty and lots of little touches enabled us to feel so relaxed and pampered.... More

A friend and I stayed for the weekend, so that we could explore a bit of the Peak District on foot. We had a lovely welcome from Stephen and Julie and found everything at the Old Shoulder of Mutton to be of a high standard - lovely house and rooms, fantastic attention to detail and a very delicious breakfast made...

We have recently returned from a weekend stay at The Old Shoulder of Mutton in the delightful Derbyshire village of Winster. We stayed for 2 nights and wished we had made time to stay longer. Steve and Julie are the perfect hosts and take enormous pride in the welcome they provide to guests in their quite beautiful home. We stayed... More

In total agreement with all the other very positive comments about this B&B- it really was one of the nicest (actually it was the nicest) we've ever stayed in and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The food in particular was lovely, and Steven and Julie were genuinely warm and welcoming people. We travelled by train (to Matlock and then... More

We stayed for 2 nights over Sun/Mon and all I can say is wow! I'm sure you've read all the excellent reviews, but we can't stress enough how beautiful this place is. Steven and Julie have painstakingly restored this outstanding building. The room, bathroom, decor, fabrics and finishes are really beautiful. Our house has 'house envy'! It feels so much... More

We had a very warm welcome from Steve and Julie. Our room was exceptionally comfortable with a huge king-sized bed and luxurious bathroom. There is an attractive sitting room to relax in and we had delicious freshly cooked breakfasts,

It's always the little things that make a good stay a great one. Besides the fact that the room & ensuite were just perfect, not to mention the breakfast. Steve & Julie provided a warm welcome along with tea & scones in the garden when we arrived. There was a spare toothbrush available in a handy extras pack(we forgot one... More
