"A beautiful haven in the heart of the Peak District"
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Sheldon’s Retreat - it’s a peaceful haven in a very beautiful area, ideal for day trips. We did lots of walking, and ended each day with dinner at one of the nearby towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Matlock Bath, and Castleton. Jay shared her love and enthusiasm for the area and pointed us in the right direction for many gems of places to visit. Gentle music and Jay's beautiful artwork create a calm and serene atmosphere in the light, spacious breakfast room. Read less
Likes:
Jay and Chris are the perfect hosts - very kind, offering great cooked breakfasts and a good choice of fresh fruit, organic cereals, preserves and even home-made bread! We had a large comfy room too.

The Peak District’s special qualities are well known to the people who live in the towns and cities that surround the National Park, but for visitors from further away, whether from Britain or abroad, the magic of the Peak District is just waiting to be discovered. A short break, or longer holiday, will allow you to explore some of England’s most spectacular scenery, and in the towns, villages and hamlets - amongst the prettiest in the country - you will find a warm and genuine welcome wherever you go. Every taste is catered for and many exciting activities are available.

Providing beautiful, clean, individually designed rooms offering quality en suite accommodation, Sheldon’s Retreat offers a unique break in beautiful Derbyshire countryside. With its perfectly placed, tranquil hideaway location, the tiny village of Sheldon is the ideal base for walking, hiking, cycling or just taking a relaxing break. All 5 guest rooms feature an en suite bathroom with power shower, and all have garden views. From our south-facing aspect you can enjoy views across our lovely, informal garden to the fields and hills beyond.
Environmental Statement
We are extremely mindful of our energy consumption and do our best to limit our impact on the environment. We are looking into alternative energy generation sources. Much of our food is sourced from organic/local producers, and have our own small flock of free range chickens. Virtually all waste food produce is composted. We use low energy bulbs to conserve energy, and we ask that our guests assist us in this endeavour where possible by reusing their towels and turning off lights and appliances when they are not needed. By doing this we can significantly reduce our energy consumption. Thank You!
