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!
