From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


This lovely barn conversion offers character and contemporary interiors while being an ideal base for exploring the local countryside.

Located in the quiet hamlet of Patchole, these converted detached holiday barns (HSSW and HRRG), offer a combination of both character and contemporary design. Spacious accommodation goes hand in hand with very good facilities and all the modern conveniences guests may require during their stay. Both barns overlook the courtyard of the owner’s farmhouse with sitting-out areas. Patchole is set in the heart of the North Devon countryside and is well suited for exploring this area. At Croyde and Woolacombe, some of the best and cleanest surf beaches in the country can be found, as well as many smaller coves and bays. Barnstaple, the regional town, offers a range of shops. Shop 1 mile, pub 2 miles.

First floor: Spacious sitting room with sofa bed (alternative sleeping only), beams and wooden floor. Double bedroom with 6ft zip-link bed, TV and en-suite shower with toilet.

    Fantastic location, beautifully appointed accommodation. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Great relaxing retreat to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. A great weeks holiday.

    Have now stayed at Shippen twice recently, one was Christmas week, the other was a short break very recently. On both occasions, we were made to feel very welcome by Clive and Pauline, with them adding personal touches and a lovely welcome pack.
