We booked the Sheldon's Retreat at the last minute, after finally deciding what we wanted to do over the half term break. We were not disappointed! This bed and breakfast is a real gem. It is set in the small village of Sheldon, just outside of Bakewell and therefore it is a great location for commuting to many attractions. As... More

We were given a really nice warm room on the ground floor with a private entrance. The owners are lovely and helpful people, served a fantastic breakfast and arranged an impromptu bicycle lock up on arrival. Perfect! Can definitely recommend to veggies, vegans and non veggies!

Set 1000 feet above sea level this stunning converted barn is the ideal place for that getaway- from- it- all break, and the perfect position for a walking or cycling holiday. The village of Sheldon is like being in a village of yesteryear with chicken wondering up to you completely unafraid, a dairy farm with that wonderful fresh smell of... More

My friend and I spent a very peaceful 5 days in the Peak District!! This B and B was perfect to come back to after a day walking. Delicious breakfast all organic, homemade breads, their own eggs. Quiet location, friendly people. Local pub ok for evening meals. Comfortable beds and clean shower room.

This is a small guesthouse in a tiny village surrounded by the Derbyshire Dales. The room was comfortable and immaculately clean. The decor is fresh, modern and with nice little touches such as home made bags of fragrance. The bed was a standard double and very comfortable with a lovely thick, substantial mattress. It isn't a foam mattress which accounts... More

When my boyfriend and I booked Sheldons retreat we were a little surprised when we later found out it was a veggie B&B and there was a bit of a delay in answering our emails so we were a little apprehensive about our visit. However when we arrived we had a warm welcome, the room was very comfortable and the... More

I stayed at Sheldon's Retreat in July 2015. The place was a little hard to find in the dark but once we had found it, we were made to feel very welcome. The breakfast was lovely, the eggs were up there with the best we have tasted. The room (we stayed in the downstairs room) was clean and comfortable, with... More

We loved this guesthouse. The welcome was fantastic and our room very comfortable, although up some steep stairs. The breakfast room was superb, beautifully laid out and decorated with gorgeous abstract paintings by the manager. We loved the home laid eggs in the morning. The surrounding countryside is outstanding and we loved walking the Monsul Trail nearby. Will definitely consider... More

I stayed at Sheldon's Retreat for 2 nights and was really impressed. I was made to feel really welcome as soon as I arrived, my room was very nice. It was a beautiful location, and a perfect base for my weekend of walking, only a short drive away from the Monsal Head Trail. It was refreshing to find a b&b... More

I stayed here last weekend on a last minute break away and I'm very glad we picked here! I wanted a weekend away from it all, and this is certainly a great place for this - the B&B itself is in the middle of a handful of houses and opposite the pub that make up the village of Sheldon.
