Absolutely fantastic, will be booking again next year.
Mr Baptist

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay, beautiful location and setting with very pleasant owner. The Shippen was ideal for us as my mother is very immobile, so being on one level was perfect. Lovely spacious accomodation, with super views from the lounge, in particular. Very comfortable lounge and super kitchen and facilities. Plenty of bathroom facilities and good bedroom sleeping arrangements - would be great for a family holiday. Good base location for exploring and lots of lovely opportunity to walk. Very likely we will return!
Mrs Matkins
