With lots of walking and cycling opportunities nearby, The Shippen is a wonderful, romantic base for couples exploring the Lake District National Park.


A perfect holiday home in a perfect location. Had a very relaxing holiday.
Mrs Wardropper

The property was quiet and peaceful with plenty of places to walk.
Mrs Bacon

The beautiful scenery as you walk out the front door was amazing, so many lovely walks and because the cottage was dog friendly we were able to enjoy it with our four legged friend making the holiday even more delightful. The property owners are very kind and incredibly helpful. The house has fantastic heating so the cottage was warm throughout the day. The nearest shop is rather far so to anyone travelling over I would recommend taking your own food. I would rate our week a 10/10.
Miss Stephens

Fantastic cottage. Lovely location, quiet, restful and silent. The owners were lovely who live next door. Excellent location to get to other places in the lakes. We cannot recommend this place enough
Mr Blanchard

Can't fault this property at all, simply phenomenal. The owners were beyond welcoming and couldn't have helped more. Can't wait to come again.
