The hamlet of Shatton lies in the Hope Valley in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District. Situated between Hathersage and Hope, the hamlet is accessed by road from the A6187 Hope Road over Mytham Bridge, a small stone road bridge that passes over the River Noe, a tributary of the River Derwent.

In the civil parish of Brough and Shatton, the hamlet consists of a small number of residential houses along Shatton Lane, with farm buildings further into the hamlet, where Shatton Lane meets Townfield Lane.

Townfield Lane leads west from Shatton, heading towards neighbouring Brough, however it is not a through road for vehicular traffic. Shatton Lane heads south, climbing steeply up to Offerton Moor and a tall aerial mast, after which the road ends and becomes a farm track. Overdale Brook, running down from the Abney and Offerton moors crosses Townfield Lane by a stone ford close to the Shatton Lane junction.
