The accommodation in the Shippon is simple in design and a total of 19/20 can sleep in 10 bedrooms – 5 doubles (one of which has the option of an additional single bed to make a family room – this will be as standard from 2017), 3 twins (one of which can be converted to a super king) and 2 singles (one of which can have a extra pull up mattress if you need a extra bed for a child (not really suitable for a adult as the room is really small) bringing the sleeping total up to 20).

The majority of bedrooms have the lovely view across farmland to the river and beyond. All bedrooms are completely separate and there are no bunk beds.

There are duvets throughout, some feather and some fibre filled. If anyone has an allergy to feathers, please let us know in advance and we can make the necessary arrangements. We always put bathmats in the bathrooms and towels are available at extra cost (£3 for a set of 2). From 2017 towels will be provided free of charge as standard (1 x bath towel and a hand towel), guests will still need to provide their own swimming/beach towels.

Bed linen is all 100% Egyptian Cotton from Beaumont & Brown. We have invested in beautiful linen so that you can have a wonderful nights sleep! Its all laundered by the fabulous Eco Laundry Ltd, reducing our impact on the environment.

All the rooms have their own bathroom, mostly en suite (apart from for bedroom 2, 6 and 9 which have a bathroom immediately opposite or just along the hall).

There are a number with bath and showers, some with just showers and a wet room on the ground floor.
