We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Shippon, the cottage was all we needed and was comfortable. The owners were very friendly but not intrusive, and our children really enjoyed playing in the large garden - the views are beautiful! They also liked seeing the Shetland ponies across the road! It is in a very quiet location but less than ten minutes from Launceston. Worth every penny!
Mrs Begg

The property was peaceful and the owners were available if necessary and made us welcome but didn't intrude at all. We were impressed by the overall standard of everything in the cottage. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a restful holiday.
Mrs Kellard

The owner of The Shippon were second to none! They went the extra mile with anything we needed. Amazing views!
