    Widecombe in the Moor
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Yonder Shippon is situated on a farm on Dartmoor in South Devon.

    It is a delightful cosy little cottage, recently converted from a stone barn known as a 'shippon'. A shippon is where cattle and sheep would once have been housed. It has been beautifully converted providing a living room downstairs with a sitting area and wood burner, dining area and kitchen. Spiral stairs lead to the mezzanine floor above with a double bed (or twin beds if preferred) and a shower room.

    The detached cottage has its own courtyard and has fabulous panoramic views of the countryside including the moor. It is situated two miles south of the scenic village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor and is an ideal base from which to discover Dartmoor - its history, archaeology, flora and fauna, beautiful rivers, the loc...

We loved everything about this wonderfully compact yet complete cottage, from the large picture postcard window looking out onto the farm paddocks and horses, to the welcoming committee of dogs and Shetland pony. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the location is perfect for getting away from it all and unwinding. Come with the intention of getting back... more
