    The Shippon is a very comfortable well presented Cottage with everything you need to have a relaxing holiday. Situated for easy access to Devon and Cornwall for countless day out ideas. The owners certainly make great hosts for your holiday ensuring everything is perfect for your stay. I would happily return for another stay and definitely recommend The Shippon.

    The Shippon was very peaceful and relaxing, a perfect getaway.



    out of 10

    The property fully met our expectations. We had a very warm welcome from the owners, as well as a Devon cream tea and other goodies! We would definitely recommend it for a couple who are looking for a quiet 'get away from it all' break. It is well equipped. There are a number local forestry walks which we made use of. This property is definitely on our list to recommend to friends and we will be looking to return in the not too distant future.

    Wonderfully presented retreat, quiet clean and very welcoming. Great country setting. Cream tea on arrival fantastic. One of the best we've stayed in.

    If you are looking for a very smart rural location, this is perfect. The cottage is immaculate.Outside space is plentiful and private, with plenty of parking . Rural views from every angle. There is no local village, but if you like to have a day out and go home for the evening, it is so relaxing.Warm welcoming Owners, and their goats and chickens are delightful.



    out of 10

    Very quiet location, but that’s what we wanted, car parking very good and safe, must have a car as a few miles from any amenities, friendly owners and helpful, we would definitely rebook, but very quiet if you want pubs or restaurants you need the car, accommodation very good



    out of 10

    Lovely base for our holiday. Very clean and comfortable cottage, so peaceful.
