    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!

    Brilliant cottage. Great for walks. Fantastic that is on the site of the craft centre with fantastic artists, potters, jewellers and woodworkers.

    What a fabulous cottage! Beautifully styled. More like a home from home than a holiday cottage. Lovely setting with views of the moor and woodland walks. Peace and quiet. Tricky to get a mobile phone signal or internet connection, but that was a good thing in my view! Comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms. The living space was great- very well thought out and everything you needed in the kitchen. The lane getting to the cottage is very narrow and the best way in and out is over the golf course. Would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to friends.

    This lovely cottage was the perfect getaway break me and my boyfriend were looking for. We cannot fault the cottage itself, the location, the people or the area. It was about a 10 minute drive to a main part of Dartmoor which we thought was perfect so we went everyday. The cottage was immaculate and there wasn't anything missing which you would need (except food of course - although we were given fresh chicken eggs and provided with coffee and biscuits and milk) We will 100% be returning!!

    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!

    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.
