We arrived by bikes on a very (very) soggy summers eve, but what a warm welcome! Bikes taken straight into the garage and our soaking jackets etc taken to be dried. Room was beautiful, with a lovely view over the garden and superb bathroom with good powerful shower. Chocs on the bed was a lovely touch too. Fresh pot of... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid June 2014 and I can safely recommend it to anybody without concern. The hosts, Julie and Steven are terric and will either engage you in rewarding conversation or leave you to yourself if that is your wish. A rare skill indeed. The village of Wiston is lovely and the... More

We spent last weekend in the company of Julie and Steven, genial proprietors of The Old Shoulder Of Mutton in Winster. The building has been beautifully and expertly restored and the garden, which we overlooked from the Garden Room, is equally delightful although tall guests will need to be wary of the sloping ceiling. We were welcomed with a tea... More

My wife and I spent 2 very comfortable nights in this beautiful part of the world. Julie and Steven were perfect hosts throughout, greeting us with a warm friendly welcome together with a delicious cake and pot of tea in the comfortable guests sitting room. Our room was comfortable, spotless and well equipped (including a complimentary box of chocolates), with... More

Thank you to Steve and Julie for looking after us so well in their beautifully renovated home! Old Shoulder of Mutton is a 'one off' - an atmospheric old building full of special charm and oozing solid quality. We were made to feel genuinely welcome, more as friends than paying guests, and we particularly enjoyed the high quality breakfasts. We... More

When welcomed with tea and delicious cake you know that the rest of your stay will be lovely - and it was. Steve and Julie made us feel most welcome, going out of their way to make sure we had any information and local knowledge we needed, the live radar weather picture proved most useful! A perfect place to explore... More

Lovely house, full of charm, in a quiet location in a very pretty village. Extremely warm and attentive hosts. Fantastic breakfast - fresh, home cooking of the highest quality. This place sets the standard for b&b's. Lots of great little touches. Beautiful garden. Will certainly go back if I can.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Our breakfasts use all locally produced ingredients (except for the fruit) with the fresh eggs travelling only 100yds. The garden is an absolute picture throughout the summer. It will be open to the public on the 19 & 20 July as part of the Winster Secret Gardens - sorry - we... More

We had the opportunity for a short break of a couple of nights and chose the village of Winster in Derbyshire The area was well worth seeing and the weather was excellent, but what really made the break something special was our accommodation at the Old Shoulder of Mutton. We were treated less like paying guests and more like old... More

It's good to hear that you enjoyed your weekend in the Peak District and thank you for your feedback. "The taxi" always turns heads - it is the only vintage car in the UK licenced for Private Hire - so a unique experience. More

A truly fine B&B in every respect. Very attentive hosts during our stay, from the welcoming tea and delicious homemade cake, to the up-to-the-minute weather forecasts and the detailed walk suggestions which cherry pick the best lunch stops. Breakfasts are as good as breakfasts get - quality food cooked to perfection. The accommodation is immaculate throughout with a comfortable first... More
