Lovely property in a beautiful location. It was very well equipped, homely & comfortable. The owners, Vicky & Peter, were friendly hosts & provided lots of information on things to do in the area. The Crealock Arms serves good food & is only a short walk away. We had a very enjoyable holiday & will definitely return.

Very cosy accommodation with everything you want to have an enjoyable holiday. The owners had thought of everything and were very helpful where we had a query. Very quiet location and our dog had plenty of space to walk on the lead. Thank you again to the owners....

The cottage is in a good position for exploring the North Devon area but has many bad points. The main problem is that the king-size bed is too wide for the bedroom. There is only approx a foot on either side between the bed and the wall and it it very difficult to get in and out of bed, having to squeeze sideways along the gap.

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.

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.
