A wonderful holiday Shippon on Dartmoor finished to a high standard, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The lovely owners made us feel very welcome. We would rate this property highly.

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.

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.
Mrs Inwood September 2021
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.
Mr Hasley September 2021
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

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!
