    The Shippon is a lovely holiday cottage. Easily accessed from the A39 in a quiet small hamlet, it's location provides easy access to numerous beaches and idyllic villages. Bude is some six miles away where there are also supermarkets (e.g. Lidl /Morrisons). The cottage is large (sleeps six) with three separate bedrooms, two bathrooms both with bath/shower and even a third toilet on the ground floor! We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would certainly use again. The cottage was clean, warm and very welcoming - the owners were very helpful too.

    Loved the location at the end of a country lane but also being close enough to a main route. Beautiful cottage, large airy and spacious. Sun trap of a back garden. Bonus of 3 toilets too! Our little boy lived the baskets of toys around the property and spent every available minute playing with them-a super idea. Well equipped and large kitchen. Plenty of parking for 2 cars outside the property too. Limited internet connection 3G sometimes 4g didn’t bother us as it was nice to switch off from everyday life. The towels in the bathroom were tired feeling and odd. Plus they weren’t big enough to wrap around your body. All our ‘group’ 4 adults commented on this. They were only big enough to wrap round our 4 year old!!! Bath towels or bath sheets would have been better than a small hair towel! Also if you are having children stay in the property plastic cups/glasses plates/ bowls would be a good addition. There was one child’s fork in the drawer but the rest of the set-knife and spoon were missing. Another thought would be to put some tea towels in the kitchen too rather than just a towel/tea towel-much more hygienic. We went through all the drawers but couldn’t find one. However we all really enjoyed our stay at The Shippon and would recommend it to family and friends in the future.
