The Shippen description

Holiday home
The Shippen is a charming, upside down cottage, attached to the owners' 17th century, traditional Lakeland farmhouse in Rusland, six miles from Hawkshead. On the ground floor, the cottage has one bedroom with a king-size double bed, and a bathroom. There is an open plan living area up on the first floor, with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting are with a woodburning stove. The courtyard outside is enclosed with furniture and pretty flowers and plants, and there is off road parking for two cars. With lots of walking and cycling opportunities nearby, The Shippen is a wonderful, romantic base for couples exploring the Lake District National Park.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

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.

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.

It was modern with a cosy feel, the wood burner was particularly effective. The owners were welcoming and friendly without being intrusive. Everything you could need was available.

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
