    Property description
    Widecombe in the Moor
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Yonder Shippon is situated on a farm on Dartmoor in South Devon. Weekly lets are offered, or short breaks (a minimum of three nights) are available during the period mid-October through to mid-March.

    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-...

The rest of the week we stayed in, read books, ate, and relaxed, and loved it. :) The property has been renovated very sympathetically and is decorated to a high standard throughout. It...
