We were very pleased to find everything so clean and welcoming. The beds were extremely comfortable and the area so quiet, perfect for a very relaxing week where it was so easy to combine visits to towns and cities with enjoying the lovely countryside.
Mr Beattie

It was very peaceful and the cottage was extremely comfortable and spacious.
Mrs Dewhurst

A fabulous converted barn away from it all. Low Shipley Cottage is tastefully decorated, with friendly owners who were not intrusive. There are also plenty of great walks from the doorstep.
Mrs Wickerson

Low Shipley Cottage was a lovely comfortable cottage and the views were fabulous. We loved the fire, it was very homely/. The owner was very pleasant and helpful.

The good, bad and indifferent.
The entrance road is very bad in places and not good for loaded or low set car. The bottom of the car scraped a few times even with careful driving. The cattle grids are low to the road also. The farm is a bit untidy looking and not inviting at all. The cottage is lovely ! but the shower pressure is dire. Many of the lights have no working bulbs. The rain was running down the outside of the log burner chimney all night, we left a voice mail and a text to the owners as no one answered the door. We are still waiting for any kind of response to that. I laid newspapers down to soak up the water. Could not put the log burner on as only two logs. Also as mentioned by previous renters Wi-Fi non existent. The beds were comfy and rooms warm. The car had a soft tyre which some guys loading vans looked at and recommended a garage for repair as there was a screw in it. We went back the farm road very cautiously the garage was excellent and soon had us on our way. I feel it is a shame the cottage needed some simple care and a bit more cleaning, ( cutlery tray, cobwebs also bulbs, no matches to light fire, logs for the fire) it did let it down.
