  • "Great owners who made us feel welcome and great feedback on places to walk and eat."

    Wonderful property set in a lovely farm with horses. Property was equipped with everything you’ll ever need. One of the best cottages we have stayed in. Look forward to visiting later in the year!

    Thank you both so much for visiting (and for the review). Hope to see you back at Shippon Cottage in the not too distant future. Kind Regards Maeve Property Owner

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of the pretty village of Castleton, Derbyshire, on the owner’s non-working farm, is this traditional, one-bedroom abode, Shippon Cottage.

Benefitting from rural country views and easy access to the Peak District National Park, Shippon Cottage is a great base for a couple looking to explore this region of Derbyshire.

Internally, the cottage is tastefully laid out with the upstairs incorporating a bedroom and living area with a spectacular, four-poster king-size bed.

The ground-floor features a well-appointed kitchen where you can rustle up hearty meals to be enjoyed at the dining table, whilst the sitting area is where you can spend your down time, curling up beside the gas stove and choosing a film to watch from the Smart TV.

Escape outside and get the barbecue going before relaxing at the patio furniture and enjoying your favourite tipple.

Explore the charm of Castleton, where you can wander the streets and browse a selection of quirky shops, tea rooms and cafes, before seeing the mighty Peveril Castle perched on a hill overlooking the village.

Lace up your walking boots and tackle the surrounding area, with scenic trails the National Trust Dark Peaks, or appreciate the views from Mam Tor.

Bakewell is accessible by car, a market town lying on the River Wye, where visitors can walk across the historic Bakewell Bridge or spend time practising their golf swing at the aptly-named Bakewell Golf Club.

Choose Shippon Cottage and explore the best of the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Hope 1.5 miles; Buxton 10 miles; Bakewell 13 miles.

The outstandingly beautiful Peak District village of Castleton is situated at the top of the Hope Valley, on the doorstep of some great walking country. Steeped in fascinating history, the village boasts the Norman Peverill Castle Keep which is in a commanding position keeping an eye on the village and the National Park. The village is a draw to walkers and all manner of outdoor enthusiasts wanting to follow the paths, conquer the Winnats Pass or have a go at caving. Castleton is world-famous for its visitor caves and the beautiful semi precious stone Blue John which is only found and mined here. Castleton has a fabulous array of interesting little gift shops, pubs, tea rooms and an excellent Visitor Centre with its small museum explaining life in the Hope Valley, plus the Christmas lights and festive activities are very popular with visitors during December. Nearby are the pretty villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Hope and Hathersage with its seasonal outdoor swimming pool. Enjoy a day out at Alton Towers or visit the impressive Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Also within easy reach are Buxton, Matlock Bath and Carsington Water, while further afield are the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek.
