Charming, well-appointed and laid out cottage. Very comfortable for two people. Great large bed and good shower. Cottage has wifi but no TV (which we didn't miss). If you are driving a large car, you should access the cottage from the north (Widecombe) as the road to it from the south is VERY narrow and awkward.
Stephen very friendly and welcoming.
As two teachers, this provided everything we needed for the perfect half term. Plenty of peace and quiet, a wood burner, doorstep walks, a comfy bed and yet more peace and quiet.
We were delighted to find this little cottage for our short weekend break in Dartmoor. It was easy to find and we had a friendly welcome by Stephen and Fiona, who were super helpful for our entire stay. The cottage was perfectly laid out, with everything you may need and we absolutely loved the logburner which heated up the whole cottage until the morning when we awoke!
The location is fantastic, being near all the major Tors and easy to plan walks from.
This place is perfect for a romantic retreat, for those who want to get away from it all, and for those who love the outdoors and going on some great hikes.....or you can just sit by the logburner with a glass of wine ;)
Will definitely be back, and will recommend to all our friends.
Just loved it- from the log-burner to the well-equipped kitchen, everything had been carefully considered and perfectly set up for our week over Christmas. Our hosts were friendly & helpful, and it was fascinating to hear their perspective on farming and all sorts of other interesting topics. Yonder Shippon was the perfect base, we enjoyed walking from the cottage and a short drive got us to all sorts of interesting places, and friends and family nearby. Thank you Steve and Fiona for everything. We hope to come back again!
We had a wonderful New Year's weekend break at Yonder Shippon. The location and decor was exactly what we wanted: quiet and calm, beautifully presented and super cozy by the wood-burner - especially welcome on a cold December evening! Stephen was a great host, making sure we had everything we needed and could find our way around. The dogs coming to see us in the morning were a welcome sight too! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or stay here again.
Such a lovely cottage set in the beautiful Dartmoor countryside. It was easy to get to with a satnav and close to many of the trail-heads across the park. The cottage itself was very cozy, perfect for a single traveler or couple's getaway. All the furnishings and fittings were to a high standard, the owners have obviously put in a lot of care into refurbishing the building.
I had a bit of trouble operating the wood stove, but Stephen was very kind and helped me the first evening.
I would highly recommend this place if you want to escape the city or explore Dartmoor.
