    One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in! The interior decoration, including a superb kitchen area and two lovely bathrooms, is stunning. In addition the woodburner, actually works (not many do in our experience), adds a very cosy touch for a chilly evening. It is also extremely well equipped and even provided towels for the dog. The location would be a little remote for some, but we loved it!

    An excellent cottage. Extremely well presented and furnished in a lovely location. Very good value for money.

    Usual mistake with winter quilts in the summer, who needs thick duck/goose down in July? Also natural products can be a problem with some folks. A choice of synthetic TOGs would be useful. The shower room was splendid, towels a bit rough but if you are into exfoliation no problem. Other than that great place and nice folks, a quiet retreat with easy access to the Devon area.

    Unlike many holiday cottages, the photos undersell rather than oversell Shippen Cottage. It is beautifully decorated and fitted out to the highest standards. The location is so peaceful but also only a short drive to Okehampton. It is also well located for Dartmoor, Exeter and the coast. We could not have hoped for anything better for our week in Devon.

    Excellent but the drive to the cottage needs getting used to.
