    Lovely cottage. Was well equipped, warm and comfortable. Whilst there, we ate at the Black Venus pub and had a great meal. Also visited Arlington court and had a great day out there. Definitely recommend it.

    This barn conversion offers an excellent standard of accommodation. Clean and comfortable, with high spec fixtures and fittings. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. Very good location with the north Devon coast a short drive away. We had a great holiday and would recommend!

    We all had an excellent time, we were made to feel very welcome. The Shippen had everything that we needed for our stay. very good for our dogs, who also had a very good time.

    Lovely, well designed barn conversion, very comfortable and a homely feel. Loved the bed linen! Our hosts were fantastic, left us fresh eggs and a homemade lemon cake which was delicious. A great base for exploring a beautiful part of Devon, with fantastic beaches and lovely walks. We will definitely be back.

    Greeting on arrival was poor. Outside space was small and overlooked by other letting and owners house. Parking was away from house.Downstairs bathroom needed Two Grab Rails in bath/shower for safety. Needs shelf over sink.Needs hooks on door to hang clothes. Stairs slippery need stair treads.Bedroom door catches on floor unable to open very far.We have had much better.No Clothes Dryer on machine. I dd not think the owner cared too much if he did he did not show it.

    We visited with our 12 year old daughter & 9month old pup. The shippen is a beautifully converted barn - Developed to a very high standard, it is surprisingly light & spacious, decorated lovely & fully equipped. The owners gave us a warm welcome with a lovely home baked cake & 6 delicious eggs & even a treat for our pup. I am quite sure we will be back :)

    We had a great week in the Shippen. It was our first holiday with a dog in tow and it couldn't have been better. We were made to feel very welcome and the rooms were all very comfortable. The converted barn has been tastefully re-decorated and had everything we needed. We cooked in a lot of the time and even had a bbq one night (in early April!) There was some great info about dog friendly beaches and pubs all within a short drive and we made the most of as many as we could! The courtyard outside was a nice sun trap in the afternoons and it was also great to have the bigger field behind the house for the children & dog to play in. There are no amenities in walking distance which didn't bother us but may not appeal to some people, but all in all, a fabulous place to stay.
