We had a v warm welcome & friendly service throughout the weekend. Room was large, clean with great views over the moors. Bed was exceptionally comfortable. Breakfast was of a good quality and we will definitely return the next time we are in the area. Enjoy.

Stayed at the Shippon for 1 night on 17th August, having to go to a funeral next day. Travelled up from Bristol and had no idea what this area would be like. The B & B was brilliant, and Alice was very welcoming and extremely helpful. The room was lovely with tea,coffee etc on hand even the biscuits were gorgeous.... More

A warm welcome awaited us on arrival for an overnight stay after attending a wedding in Saddleworth. What beautiful accommodation in equally beautiful surrounding countryside. The farm buildings have been very well renovated to make first class accommodation. After a comfortable night in a spotless well appointed room, Alice, our host, cooked a full English breakfast...delicious. I would highly recommend... More

We stayed at the Shippon for 3 nights in June 2015. The room was spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable and the wi-if worked well. Apple maps displays 2 locations as the postal code is not unique, but google maps is correct. The breakfast was excellent and provided whenever requested. Alice the owner was very friendly and available at breakfast... More

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
