About The House
The former pay office for the old Magpie Lead Mine, Sheldon House is a Grade II 18th Century listed building located on the edge of the village of Monyash in the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park.
We offer Bed & Breakfast in Sheldon House and self-catering accommodation in Sheldon Barn. Guests are welcome to use the garden and lounge for relaxation and recuperation. We welcome walkers and cyclists, offering secure bike storage. During inclement weather use of the boot room and drying room is also provided.
"A very warm welcome, great hospitality and a comfortable place to stay."
About The Owners
Moving to Monyash in April 2018, Caroline & Mike aim to continue the excellent hospitality offered by the previous owners. As keen walkers and cyclists we are becoming knowledgeable about the area in which we live - and as an experienced geology/geography teacher, Caroline can also offer some explanations of the local landscape. Maps and guide books are available for guests to borrow.
As well as quality B&B and self-catering accommodation, we want to provide space where people can relax and take time out from busy lives. While many of our guests want to get out and about, whether walking, cycling or soaking up the various cultural and historical attractions, you are welcome to stay and enjoy our garden or make use of the lounge (by arrangement) if you would prefer a quiet day in.
We love children, and families are very welcome in both Sheldon Barn and Sheldon House. We can provide a cot and high chair, also toddler toilet seat and step, on request.
We can also host groups of around 12 people (depending on group make-up) using both the House and the Barn, for short breaks, please use the enquiries page to ask for more information.
"Thank you for a lovely stay, every detail has been attended to. 10 out of 10!"
Where to find us
SatNav may take you to the crossroads in the middle of the village and Sheldon House is on Chapel Street, going north from the crossroads (so the pub is to the right as you enter Chapel Street). If approaching from:
Buxton (via Tagg Lane) - turn left at the crossroads into Chapel Street
Ashbourne (via The Rake) - go straight on at the crossroads into Chapel Street
Bakewell - turn right at the crossroads into Chapel Street
Go up the slight hill and we're on the left just as the road starts to go down again. Google Maps has us identified and located correctly! Parking for B&B is off-road at the front of the house, at right-angles to the road. Parking for Sheldon Barn is at the rear of the Barn (through the gate to the right of the house).
