“Comfy and cosy”
Reviewed November 19, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A really lovely little place. Very peaceful, cosy and private in a no through road. Compact but with everything you need. Here for business this time but will definitely visit again for leisure.

Booked from New Zealand - added one other person to our group and also booked The Stable on same property. The Shippen was the smaller of the two and my wife and I stayed there while her brother and sister stayed in The Stable. This was larger and we wound up calling it the Manor House and The Shippen was The Lodge. Everything was excellent and all was well presented. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - we travelled around Cornwall by car daily and were pleased to be able to get back to comfortable surroundings each evening. We used Tesco meals when we weren't eating out - recommend the Who'd Have Thought It Inn for a very nice meal, and the pub in Callington as well. Nice and quiet and slightly off the beaten track so no way to walk into town but it was peaceful and comfortable - well worth taking on as a rental

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
