Originally built as a barn in the 18th Century, this property offers an idyllic retreat for a couple looking to spend some tome together and get away from it all. The addition of a wood-burning stove makes this a perfect base from which to explore the region at any time of year.

Boasting exposed beams and a mezzanine bedroom, the property is full of character and offers spacious accommodation for two people. The patio to the rear allows you to soak up the views of the three acres in which the cottage is situated, whilst a wood-burning stove can transform the cottage into a cosy nest in the winter months.


Wonderful cottage
We have just spent a week at this lovely cottage. It was very well equipped and we had everything we needed. Great attention to detail. Very cosy especially with the log burner. The garden is sooo quite, with stunning views. Very peaceful location and within an hour of all the popular sites of North Wales. The owners were very welcoming.

Escape to tranquility
We had the most relaxing & blissfully quiet time with our 2 dogs, good walks on the nearby beach, excellent places to visit within easy reach. Quiet, unspoilt, peaceful, just perfect! could not be more highly recommended. Property was idyllic, very cosy, and the private field just outside the door was a big hit with "furry babes" The owners were very helpful, loads of local knowledge, wood pit was excellent for the evenings to enjoy the setting, so a big thanks!. 10/10 we will go back, Kevin

Ruhe und Mu?e statt Action und Adrenalinkick
Ein einzigartiges Cottage wie man es nur sehr selten findet. Perfekt f?r 2 Personen und unser Hund war Herzlich Willkommen wie ?berall. In 10 Autominuten ist man an der m?chtigen Stadtmauer und der m?chtigen Burganlage von Conwy. Vielen Dank an die Familie dieses Traumhaften Anwesens. A unique cottage that is rarely found. Perfect for 2 people and our dog was welcome as everywhere. In 10 minutes you are at the mighty city wall and the mighty castle of Conwy. Many thanks to the family of this dreamlike property.

Lovely relaxing stay
A wonderfully peaceful stay at The Shippon, a picturesque cottage in amazing countryside. With sheep grazing in a nearby field, swallows flying low overhead and swooping into the barn next door and bees buzzing round the geraniums and lavender in the flower garden just outside the cottage we had a truly relaxing getaway. The cottage was well-appointed, clean and comfortable, with lots of books, games and guides to the local area, and the owners on hand to help if needed (home-grown veg was lovely!) Highly recommended for a relaxing stay in a beautiful corner of north Wales.

A little piece of heaven
So our first visit to The Shippon and what a treat beautiful and so so peaceful. Our work is demanding and yet despite months of hard work and a five plus hour drive to get there (don't ask) as soon as we arrived chill relax and the Shippon effect. In all my travels I have never been so chilled out sitting in the garden with amazing views birdsong and sheep WOW A big log burner took more of our attention than any tv programme. A really comfy bed meant really restful night's. Not the best weather on our visit but it's Wales wet in the morning lovely in the afternoon lots to do within a short drive and none of it over priced a big Tesco nearby for essential supplies. The ultimate accolade is that we have booked again already and cannot wait to return we will be regular visitors. The owners Andrew and Sarah are lovely there if you need them but not intrusive. For those people that complain about low beams in their reviews learn to duck if not laugh it off it's your fault not the building.
