The Shippen is one of three beautifully renovated barn conversions on the Hartland peninsular near to the Cornish border. Surrounded by open countryside including a large meadow which can be used for walking the dogs, having a picnic or simply sitting in the sun, this single storey holiday home has everything you could think of for a couple and their two dogs. There is secure storage for bikes, surfboards and kayaks, an outdoor water supply and a drying area. Next to the barn is the owner’s own home with chickens, geese, ducks, pigs, cats and dog. And included in the cost of the holiday is the shared use of an owl observatory – which ofcourse can be used during the day for a little wildlife spotting. Inside The Shippen is a light open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a high apex ceiling and oak flooring. Eco-friendly underfloor heating provides warmth whatever the weather and the well-equipped kitchen has an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher (there is a shared utility room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and drying facilities). The village of Hartland is a couple of miles away with many craft shops and potteries in addition to cafés and restaurants. There is a long main street, with cottages either side, leading to the town square and the church of St John. Not far away is Hartland Quay, where the Shipwreck Museum is worth visiting. The Quay was commissioned in 1586, following a parliamentary bill sponsored by some of the great names of the time, Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir John Hawkins. It became a busy port, shipping coal, granite and various farm produce until it began to break up towards the end of the 19th century

We had such a wonderful few days in Shippen - beautiful accommodation and such lovely welcoming touches - thank you for the delicious cake and chutney. Our dog loved his walks in the field and meeting the ducks, geese chickens and turkeys. Thank you!

Carole & T,

Thank you for a lovely week at Shippen and a lovely welcome from the owners and Nutty. The barn is beautiful and you have thought of everything. The delicious cake and chutney was an added bonus. Loved the owl observatory. Fantastic walks and scenery and excellent for bird watching.
