“Superb cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed January 27, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed at a the Shippon for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of London. It was better than we could have expected, and we were taken aback by the attention to detail in the property.

The building itself is stunning and has the original features of wooden beams and stone steps, hundreds of years old. The bathroom and kitchen are new, with a lovely shower, and a well thought out choice of good quality kitchen stuff. We cooked some great meals including breakfasts with local eggs sold by the neighbours.

The bed is really comfortable and although we went in the middle of winter, the cottage is easy to keep warm with plentiful logs for the wood burning stove and also electric heaters in each room.

The owners are very friendly, thoughtful and have great local knowledge.

The local pub is a 10 minute walk and serves good food. Within moments of getting there we had made new friends!

Dartmoor itself has a wild and rugged beauty and is steeped in history. Its easy to get to local towns such as Totnes and to the beach, and the area is unspoiled with clean air and no light or noise pollution- coming from a city, you really notice the difference.

We would happily go back and thoroughly recommend The Shippon for a relaxing, rejuvenating break.
