    Lovely peice and quiet excellent cottage



    out of 10

    Very well appointed and good-sized country-style cottage on cattle farm. Warm and comfortable with all facilities necessary and also nice personal touches of tea and biscuits on arrival and fresh flowers on the table. Beautiful countryside, but location a bit of a challenge along winding country lanes - especially in winter on moonless, rainy nights. This will, doubtless, be much easier in summer.

    Just got back from a four night break at The Shippen. We found the cottage to be lovely and cosy, extremely clean and welcoming. Nice touches were provided by the owner including tea, coffee and biscuits and a vase of flowers from her garden. Perfectly located to get to the coast and local towns such as Taunton and Yeovil though the lanes around the cottage can be a bit of a challenge as very narrow and a lot of blind bends! Would certainly go back to The Shippen in the future.
