Beautiful location, comfortable rooms, and a delicious breakfast, but best of all is the warm welcome and the care Alice always provides for her guests. It would be hard to find a better place to stay.

We use The Shippon regularly to visit family locally and that says it all. We come back because - it's always warm, spotless and welcoming with a delicious breakfast. We would recommend it without reservation

What a lovely place, excellent breakfast, the owner is lovely and friendly, and the rooms are spacious and exceptionally clean, and the views are amazing. If you are looking for a friendly, comfortable quiet place to stay this has to be it.

We stayed just the one night. It's a very pleasant B&B, comfortable, clean, warm and everything worked. We were the only guests the night we were there and perhaps enjoyed a bit of extra attention, but they looked after us well. The only downside is that the location is a little too far out of the village to walk there...

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...
