We stayed at the Shippon two nights in April while doing genealogical research in Ashton. The house is old but the inside is new. There were plenty of outlets so we didn't have to take turns charging our devices. Best shower of our trip. We stayed in the Jersey room which was on the back of the house and very... More

The Shippon Inn provided a comfortable, friendly environment to rest after exploring the surrounding countryside. The room was immaculate, warm and comfortable and Alice was extremely helpful...she cooks a fantastic breakfast as well. The views are stunning. Will be back to explore the countryside further and enjoy this lovely place again.

Alice runs the best B&B in the Saddleworth Moor area. Period. The Shippon rooms are clean, have all necessary amenities including tea/cookie service, toiletries, great towels, etc. Wonderful views are all around and her breakfast is wonderful. We have stayed with Alice 4 times now and won't think of staying anywhere else. She is warm, accommodating and runs a beautiful... More

Sometimes one comes across the saying that if something sounds too good to be true ...it probably is. No such thing with this wonderful place to stay. It is worthy of every superlative. Even more there is a real person who deals with you and makes sure all aspects of your stay suits what you need and that does not... More

Stayed here whilst working in Oldham. I emailed to enquire about a 6:30 breakfast & Alice called me back to let me know this was no problem. Upon arrival (easy to find) I was greeted by Alice, who was dead nice & showed me to my ground floor room with it's large en-suite wet room. Decent shower gel, shampoo, conditioner,... More

Alice is very welcoming and her B&B is warm and comfortable. We have stayed here many times and have always been delighted by the hospitality Alice provides. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious, and the rooms are lovely, what more could you want.

We were visiting friends in the area and many of the hotels had poor reviews so, when I saw this B&B on TripAdvisor we decided to trust the excellent reviews. We were not disappointed! The Shippon is a beautiful Yorkshire conveted cow barn. Only four en-suite rooms but spotlessly clean and tastfully decorated. The bed in the Jersey room was... More

Having not stayed in the area before I put my trust in Tripadvisor, and went for a B&B. I wasn't disappointed. Spotlessly clean and well appointed. Friendly host and a great breakfast. Highly recommended. I hope to return.

We have been staying here for years and I am running out of superlatives to write about this superb B&B. The rooms are well appointed, warm and stylish. The breakfast is excellent and Alice's welcome is warm. You will not find a better place to stay.

I booked a room at The Shippon for my Canadian relatives. They were delighted with the welcome from Alice, the fabulous quality of the rooms and the huge superb breakfast. The Shippon is up on a hillside with mag ificent views over Delph. It is an excellent choice for anyone visiting Saddleworth
