Highly recommend the Shippen,whatever your needs you will find it here. The beaches are within a few minutes drive all have areas for dogs to run and splash around. The pubs are mostly dog friendly and the locals are very friendly. We are definitely going back.

A lovely, hidden gem in a quiet village. The renovation and decor inside is exceptional and the owners seemed to have thought of everything. Outside is beautiful and we were given a very warm welcome. Perfect for a quiet, tranquil break.

Lovely, well equipped property in a great area, perfect for exploring some fantastic coastal scenery. Great to have all the local Ordnance Survey maps as well as local walking guides provided - we made good use of them! We didn't try out the log burner but could imagine it being very cosy in winter.

A lovely cottage in a quiet setting. The property has everything you need for a week's holiday. An easy 5 minute stroll to the local pub, the Crealock Arms, is well worth it for good honest food and friendly atmosphere. The cottage is a great base for visiting North Devon.

Very comfortable with all you need. The owners are lovely and very helpful. The only slight down for us would be that the cottage is not within walking distance of anything , even the pub is quite a trek uphill.
