Shippon Cottage is a spacious, luxurious and romantic cottage for two (plus sofa bed) with wonderful views of the Lose Hill countryside. Built in 1872 this cottage was converted in 2000. It is spacious, romantic (featuring a four poster bed) and pet friendly and is a perfect retreat after exploring the delights of the Peak District.

Uniquely, upstairs Shippon Cottage offers a large 7m by 5m stunning open plan bedroom with adjoining sitting room (with TV/DVD). The room also has a spectacular four poster bed. This upstairs space can be separated by drapes into two rooms with a comfortable sofa bed giving flexibility for a third guest.

Downstairs features another sitting room with TV/DVD and gas stove. The fully fitted kitchen/dining area has an electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer.

Excellent

This is our second stay at the cottage, having thoroughly enjoyed our first stay we immediately booked our second

The owner is friendly and helpful but also leaves you to yourself

The views are amazing from the cottage, apart from the cement factory in the valley some distance away who ever allowed this to be built wants shooting!!

The cottage is 10-15 minutes walk from Castelton village mostly along car free tracks which is great if you have a dog

The owner has three dogs and our jack Russell got on really well with them.

The cottage is well equipped and spotlessly clean and very comfortable with all the home comforts you will need

We would thoroughly recommend the cottage and will be returning again

Amazing Weekend Break

We stayed here with our two dogs for the weekend. It was fantastic, everything you could need in walking distance. Great Walks, Welcoming Pubs and in such a beautiful part of the Peak District. The family are very welcoming and everything was perfect, can't wait to revisit.
