WINTER short breaks

We still have a few weekends left this Autumn and Winter, so its a great time to book a weekend away with friends during those colder months – something to look forward to as the nights draw in or maybe you have a birthday to celebrate? … you don’t even need an excuse, its just great to get away for a couple of days!

The Shippon is a lovely warm and cosy house with plenty of space for cooking and eating together as well as relaxing in the large sitting room that has 7 sofas and a big log burner. Low season weekends are from £1395 for 2 nights and £1450 for 3. Please email Jo at theshippon@sharphambarton.co.uk to enquiry about availability and rates.

Prices include bed linen and towels, all new bookings include a electricity allowance.


The Shippon is a big house using up to £35 of electricity a day (during the winter) and so we encourage people to be mindful of the amount of electricity they are using. So from January 2017 all new bookings include an allocated amount of electricity. This allowance which is based on the previous two years guest use in the same week will be inclusive within your rental price, but if your use is above this we will need to charge you for the extra units used. We have made the decision to do this as part of a wider sustainability policy for the house. Extra electricity will be charged per additional unit (above your allowance) used during your stay, and can either be paid for in cash at the end of your stay or can be deducted from your damages deposit. We want you to enjoy your break without the worry of a big bill at the end and we hope that this is a good solution for everyone.


We are now full for April-September except for one week beginning 2nd June! There are also a couple of mid weeks available if you are flexible (mostly in May and June) I am always happy to answer questions about the property so please do get in touch.

Enjoy a long or short break in this fabulous house in the heart of Devon countryside, peaceful, stunning views yet only a 40 minute walk from the lovely town of Totnes. A great opportunity to enjoy lazy days, lovely meals and long evenings on the terrace.
