    Sheldon House Monyash

    Quality, sustainable and award-winning B&B in Sheldon House with additional self-catering holiday accommodation in Sheldon Barn.


    Sheldon House and Barn is a Grade II listed property situated on the edge of the small village of Monyash, high on the limestone plateau and well situated for Bakewell market town (5 miles) and Buxton spa town (8 miles). Sheldon House has four bedrooms with Single, Twin, Double and King options available, all en-suite. A choice of breakfasts is offered with many home-made items; dinners and packed lunches are available by arrangement.

    Sheldon Barn is a separate self-catering first floor apartment with lovely views over nearby fields, sleeping four in twin and double rooms with two bathrooms.

    One of our biggest assets is the landscape and outdoor activities can be enjoyed from the door without needing to use your car. There are numerous walks to be taken - a famous one is Lathkill Dale; other longer walks include the Peak Pilgrimage and the Limestone Way. Cycling is a delight with rides along quiet lanes from half an hour up to a full day, with dedicated off-road routes such as the High Peak Trail and the Tissington Trail both just a 10 minute ride away; the Monsal trail is also easily accessible at Bakewell, Hassop Station or Millers Dale. The Pennine Bridleway (a long distance cycle route) is also nearby.

    Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are each less than 10 miles away and attractions such as Matlock Farm Park and the Heights of Abraham are also easily accessible. National Trust estates such as Longshaw and Dovedale are within half an hour’s drive and the ‘plague village’ of Eyam is about 20 minutes away.

    Monyash is one of the Derbyshire villages to celebrate the famous well dressings during May. The village has an excellent pub, The Bulls Head, which also serves food; The Royal Oak at Hurdlow is just a few minutes’ drive and other pubs can be found nearby, as well as restaurants in the local towns. Dinners may be available at Sheldon House by arrangement in advance.

    There are three dedicated off-road parking spaces at the front for B&B guests and two away from the road for guests in Sheldon Barn. Children are welcome and a family rate is available in the Sheldon House, whilst a stair gate, travel cot and high chair are available in Sheldon Barn.

    We regret we do not allow pets indoors in either the House or the Barn.
