An outstanding B&B with just 4 immaculate double rooms all beautifully looked after by Alice and her family. The breakfast room overlooks the stunning countryside and is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the wonderful cooked breakfast! We are 2 double rooms - Galloway with ensuite shower and Friesian with ensuite bathroom. Both had tea coffee biscuits etc and...

One of the best BnB's we've ever been! We stayed at Freisia Room and the view was just stunning! The bed was very comfortable. Everything was done to a very high standard. We love that there are only 4 bedrooms in the entire building which makes it more personalised. The owner was very hospitable and the breakfast was good! It's...

We stayed here while visiting the Yanks festival in Uppermill. Lovely peaceful location, spotlessly clean and well looked after. The owner was very friendly and went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Lovely breakfast. Very good value for money. Would stay again, thank you 😊

I used to live in Oldham and was returning for just one night before flying out of Manchester. Meeting friends in a Delph pub we chose to stay here just ten minutes walk up the hill. We had a spacious room, carpeted and with a warm feel. It is a Shippon conversion so there is only one small window and...

Stayed last night at The Shippon while attending a wedding at a local larger hotel. Not only can I not fault anything about The Shippon but I would go as far as to say it's by far the nicest B&B I've ever stayed in. As other reviews have said the rooms are spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, delicious cooked breakfast, and...

Overnight stay for wedding, booked for somewhere to drop our heads at the end of the day.......wish we had had more time to enjoy the lovely clean room and view of the countryside. Beautiful B&B small and friendly. Lots to do in the little villages surrounding. Very nice cooked breakfast as well.

We were recommended to The Shippon by friends and it was, by far, the best B&B we have ever stayed at. The room was excellent with a fantastically comfortable bed and the bathroom was super clean and everything worked! The owner did everything she could to make our stay memorable and we will definitely be returning soon.

Since finding The Shippon we've become regular visitors here for many very good reasons - it's always spotlessly clean, comfy beds, the breakfast is a fab start to the day, it's great value for money and Alice the owner always makes us feel very welcome and valued. B&B landladies used to have a fearsome reputation noted for their inflexibility and...
