    Great location to get away from it all. The only drawback for us was the fact there is a two mile drive along a single track lane which at this time of the year was exceptionally muddy. I know it's to be expected in the countryside but perhaps a prior warning wouldn't have gone amiss. Having said that, I would consider returning if only to use the golf complex next door. Very comfortable accommodation and excellent layout.

    This cottage had all we wanted and more. It was comfortable and warm. The isolation was bliss.

    One of the best cottages ever. What a pity, that holidays always ends. The owners have given us a very warm welcome and it was easy to get in touch with them.

    Exceptional place in all respects, we all three enjoyed our stay so much. This is one of the best cottages and grounds we have experienced!

    Excellent, clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage. The only minor criticism is that in these days of reliance on broadband internet access, the connection at Shippen Cottage is disappointingly slow. You couldn't do anything about the weather, which could have been better. It didn't spoil our break though. I would stay here again.

    The cottage was more than we expected! An absolute delight and very reasonable price although know it was beginning of March! Definitely visit again _ not too far from Tavistock where my elderly parents live - a lovely day out for them just to visit somewhere different and comfortable!
