    Our holiday at Shippen Cottage was just what we needed: completely relaxing and peaceful. We were very well looked after with a most helpful starter kit of food when we arrived - late - after a long journey. The furniture and equipment was to a very high standard and made it easy for us to cook and relax in the cottage after days out. The local facilities were very good - we have only marked those a little lower than the others due to the distance to the local facilities, although we were aware of this from location details prior to booking, so no surprises regarding that. We would definitely recommend this property and the friendly owners who made us feel most welcome.

    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.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; The road is single track, but it has plenty of passing places, and it is tarred. If exceptionally rainy weather combines with the farmer ploughing his fields, it can get muddy, but there is an alternative access over the golf course that we can show you to avoid this.

    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.
