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.

    Our stay at the Shippen was great. The introduction from the owners and the home made cake made us feel very welcome. Great location and lots of information provided in the cottage. The cottage was done to a high standard and was really comfortable. A lovely break for the family

    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.

    Great holiday accommodation. Converted to a high standard. Clean and fresh feel to the barn. Comfy beds! Plenty of space throughout. Fresh eggs, milk and a homemade cake were a lovely touch from the owners after our long journey. We had our 10 month old son with us and so the highchair provided and washing machine came in handy. The space outside was also enclosed and therefore good for letting our dog out. We liked that there were books, games and DVDs and enough tele's to keep everyone happy! Literally our only 'negative' was that there were no egg cups but I'm pretty sure if we had asked the owners they would have provided us with some. We would definitely stay again.
