Map & Directions

Road Directions

SatNav (DE45 1JJ) 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 Sheldon House 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).
