We arrived to a smile and a warm welcome that feels totally genuine. Karen and her husband have a gentle touch approach to hoasting that leave's you well cared for but not overly fussed over.

We had the pleasure of stopping at the Shippon twice in a matter of days and can honestly say that we have never been made so welcome anywhere else. Our room was exceptionally nice and our hosts, Karen and Alan were so friendly. Breakfast was fantastic as was the whole experience. Will definitely be stopping again

For our first visit to Lympstone, we chose The Shippon and were so glad we did. On our arrival, Karen greeted us and made us feel at home straight away and showed us to our very comfortable room. At present the courtyard outside is a bit of a builders yard, but this will soon clear when the adjacent house conversion...

“Choice is double and twin upstairs, both spacious with en-suite. Or you can save £10 with the downstairs non en-suite room, which is not so spacious but is still comfy with private bathroom right opposite. All are good.”
