Thank you so much for your lovely recommendation for The Shippon at Oldsbrim. We are delighted that you had a wonderful holiday and we are sure that the owners were thrilled that you felt so welcome. We hope to see you again! Sarah, Customer Support

Such a homely cottage, in such an idyllic setting. The private garden, picturesque courtyard and amenities to suit any situation was perfect. Everything was thought of, from cooking utensils to games. The layout was ideal for our family, with reading spaces upstairs that each of our children dubbed as their lounge! And the private garden, to exercise both our dog and children was invaluable. Thank you.

great location, welcoming hosts and lovely property, we're already thinking about coming again!

Wonderful cottage, wonderful location and excellent hosts

A beautiful property, and very comfortable. In a stunning location in the middle of the moor. The owners were very helpful and knowledgable and were always happy to advise us.

The Shippon is a fantastic property to stay and explore Dartmoor. Hosts Tracey and Steve couldn’t be more helpful. A truly wonderful week spent here, we would definitely return.

The Barn has been well furbished and has all you can need for your stay. Great to have the utility area and downstairs shower and toilet.

Location is amazing with walks out to the Moor on the doorstep and we were blessed with amazing weather for most of our stay so got to enjoy so much. Very peaceful and large outdoor space away from the road to enjoy, all fenced off

Owners are very responsive and helpful and although they are onsite next door the Barn does feel very separate and private.

Bed is very comfy and we had a lovely stay. Would highly recommend

The Shippon is a perfect location for exploring Dartmoor with everything readily accessible. The property was very comfortable, lovely beds and well appointed. The owners were very helpful.

Not only was the property outstanding, the owners are such lovely people! We had the most wonderful stay and can’t wait to come back and say hello!

If you love Dartmoor, peace and quiet stay at The Shippon. Owners very pleasant. Can,t wait to go again.

We really enjoyed our stay here, a perfect location on the moor. Very comfortable, well thought out with everything you should need. Lovely bedding and comfy beds.
Very helpful, friendly hosts. All in all a really relaxing stay. Would certainly rebook this property.

Just as stunning as the pictures suggest. Fantastic location for accessing Dartmoor, you can literally walk to it in a few minutes, and still not too far from the coast. There are nice walks straight out the door but you can get to most of the moor fairly quickly. The garden for the house is also beautiful and very private. Owners were very nice and helpful. Would stay again!
