The Goulden's, February 2015
It was great to just arrive and be able to walk straight in and get settled into the Shippon without having to go looking for keys or checking inventories or any other hassles, it felt like a real home from home from the very first minute and we were able to relax and enjoy the house and the beautiful surroundings straight away which is exactly what you want on a weekend break.
The added little touches of fresh roses in every room and the tray of delicious homemade Devon scones with jam and cream went down very well with all our guests. We could not have been happier with the accommodation, the whole house is well equipped and spacious, comfortable and very practical for a large groups of friends and family with an age range of 2 to 90. We will definitely be back and will be recommending the Shippon to other friends too.
The Pomeroy's, Feb 2014
‘We had a wonderful time in your lovely house. What fantastic views and accommodation perfect for our family birthday weekend with an age range between 2 and 80! We could not fault the accommodation.
Everyone said it was the best house we had stayed in as a large family group. It was a perfect location for getting to Totnes which was important for us and as I said the views were amazing and the walks on the doorstep and opportunities for some of the party to run in the beautiful Devon countryside were an added bonus.
We also loved the upstairs lounge and log burner and to have such extensive en suite facilities made it all a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.’

‘We had a fantastic time thank you. Everyone commented on how comfortable the communal spaces were and an ensuite in every bedroom was pure luxury!’
The Howse's, June 2013

The Underwood's, May 2014
‘Our group of 18 had a lovely week in May 2014 at the Shippon. The house was well equipped, and the luxury of ensuite bathrooms was something we haven’t experienced before on our group holidays. The views down the Dart Valley are stunning, and we spent the warm evenings, having drinks and nibbles on the patio. We all walked to Totnes on several occasions, which was great, as you felt that you could have both the hustle and bustle of the town, and the relaxation back at the property in the countryside. Would love to return.’
The Owen's, Jan 2014
‘Thank you so much for letting us rent the Shippon last weekend, everyone had a brilliant time and the house was perfectly equipped with everything we could ever need. I think some of the group would like to return again in the summer.’
The Baines's party, April 2014
‘We had a lovely week at the Shippon. We do this sort of holiday every couple years and its certainly one of the best large holiday houses we have stayed in and the location is idyllic!’
