    Beautiful barn conversion in an idyllic location. The views are amazing onto the surrounding fields with lots of wildlife (including a very inquisitive pheasant who tapped on the door each morning). Lovely to sit outside and have breakfast looking out over the landscape. The cottage itself has everything you need and is immaculate.

    From the moment we arrived it was a Wow! The warm welcome we received together with the high quality Barn conversion 'reveal' plus the tranquil setting and stunning Garden, all exceeded our expectations. The Barn is much more luxurious, spacious and quieter than we could have imagined or hoped for - extremely well appointed with every conceivable item for a comfortable stay thought of. Early mornings and evenings do get rather chilly so the having the underfloor heating together with it's generous overlapping time settings meant we never felt cold when we got up or before we lit the Wood burner as Sunset. Fresh Farm Eggs, milk and other essentials plus a generous sized free basket of logs and even fire lighters and matches all ensured a relaxed start to our break. The highly experienced owners are always discretely available next door in their co-located cottage, so on the rare occasion when you do need something it's sorted. Outside the control of the owners but nevertheless important I did feel I had to mark local amenities down to a 6 out of 10 as there's no local within walking distance since the Stockland Pub closed down in recent years. Not a major problem as there are two others within a short driving distance and of course there's always the possibility of pre-ordering a shopping delivery from one of the supermarkets amply dotted around the not-too-distant main towns. Overall a superb location and stay for walking or just totally chilling out in the peace and quiet.

    This is a spacious, well appointed property which is maintained and kept to a high standard and we recieved a warm welcome. We particularly enjoyed the lovely views of open countryside and the peace and quiet. The fact that The Shippon is located down an out-of-the-way single track lane was a positive as far as we were concerned - you just need to factor this in to journey times, but it certainly wasn't an issue for us. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend The Shippon for a relaxing break.

    Both being in our 80's we found the cobbles at the entrance difficult and would of licked a seat outside the kitchen door.
