“A great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were visiting Delph for the annual Whit Friday Brass Band contest. We stayed at The Shippon for 2 nights. Alice, the owner was very welcoming, friendly and knowledgable about the area. It is located just under half a mile from Delph so in easy walking distance of The contest area (part from the uphill walk back).
The bedroom and the dining room, were very well appointed, clean and well decorated. The breakfasts were excellent and cooked to our specification.
This is a B&B well worth a visit, we would definitely go again when in the are.

Stayed here on Saturday night with my boyfriend and friends. It is a lovely b&b. Lovely reception on arrival, checked in no problems, lovely sized room, spotless, good sized bathroom with walk in shower, all the ammenities that you could need. The bed was so comfy i was quite shocked at how comfortable and how well i slept. The breakfast was excellent, full english with unlimited tea coffee, fresh juice, cereals, toast etc. The ownner was lovely and very hospitable. Would recommend to anyone, so peaceful and lovely views. Very reasonably priced.

I couldn't agree more with the previous reviews! We were in the area visiting friends and stayed at the Shippon for one night. Alice met us as we parked up and shown us to our room (which was spotless) - wonderful bed and bedding, great shower, incredibly peaceful and perfect brekkie (with amazing views from the dining room) - without a doubt we would stay here again :0)

Stayed at the Shippon last night, as we were wanting somewhere in the area to stay due to going to a friends 50th party. Room was very comfortable,tea, coffee and hot chocolate, plus pkts of biscuits and even 2 chocolates! Shower was great,bed was comfiest i've slept in away from home.Walked down to the party and even managed the walk back,felt like i'd walked my breakfast off before i'd had it as the climb is quite steep. Breakfast was fabulous, plenty of choice and nothing too much trouble.Would definately recommend.

This b&b is really lovely. The rooms are modern, well decorated and have nice touches such as good quality bedding, full size good brand of shampoo and shower gel (not the thimble sized dodgy makes you normally get). The breakfast was delicious. It was perfect. We spent our wedding night there and were really pleased. If you are looking at other more expensive places in the area don't waste your money on those stay here! The lovely Alice was very helpful. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at The Shippon while visiting family in the area. Alice was a fantastic host and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The rooms were beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and warm - despite the freezing temperatures outside! There was a choice of continental or cooked breakfast, which was made to order by Alice herself. I loved the dining room with its scenic views over the surrounding countryside. It's the perfect home from home.
