Julie & Steven

Owners of the Old Shoulder of Mutton

We bought the Old Shoulder of Mutton in 2007. After a year finalising the design and getting the necessary permissions and two years of renovation work, the bed and breakfast opened for weekends only in July 2010. Julie retired from the NHS April 2012 and Steven left the construction industry to concentrate on operating the Old Shoulder of Mutton on an (almost) full time basis. Steven also operates the Award winning www.vintageadventuretours.co.uk vintage tour business.

Some have said that we are living the dream – and we are – as the B&B is compatible with our hobbies of walking, riding, travelling, socialising and Steven’s love of vintage cars and clocks. We also get to live in a fabulous home, in a picturesque village in the Peak District National Park.
