The Shippen description

Holiday home
The Shippen is a ground floor, detached cottage, one of a group of three, situated near to the small town of North Tawton in Devon. The cottage sleeps six people and has two double bedrooms (one with a shower), a twin room, and a family bathroom. It also has a kitchen with a dining area, and a sitting room. Outside is a private, lawned garden with furniture, and shared use of communal grounds and meadows. Perfect for a family holiday at any time of the year, The Shippen is a lovely cottage in beautiful countryside.

North Tawton is situated just 8 miles north of historic Okehampton. Nestling between the high, rugged tors of Dartmoor and the wide sandy beaches of the North Devon coast, it boasts thatched cottages and quaint pubs and restaurants.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

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!

The property was of a very high standard; spacious and well equipped with lovely views. It's location was convenient for exploring all of Dartmoor and the rest of Devon.
