“You know those people you see on breakfast commercials? We felt like that when we were in The Shippen”

The cottage really made us feel like home (though we're not locals!). Everything we need is all in the barn. It was squeaky clean that we felt embarrassed to use the kitchen! The surrounding area is really nice. It's pitch dark at night and it's worth bringing scopes to observe the night sky. Although, not to whine, but we couldn't manage to get any coverage in the cottage. As a traveler, I was not able to browse through my phone to see the map but hey, what do I expect, it's far off from the metropolitan busyness, might as well enjoy the nature than flicking through the gadgets right? Cheers Frances for being a lovely lovely host and paid us a visit

“An amazing and beautiful converted barn, in a lovely quiet area.”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The barn is cosy and nicely decorated and contains everything you need. The views are peaceful and you feel very relaxed. The lady who owns it is very welcoming, friendly and provides everything you need. The barn is in a great location and has private parking. So happy we found this little gem. We will def be going back.

Spent 4 nights at The Shippen.
Frances was very helpful with plenty of info about the surrounding areas and Cornwall. The place was cute and fit for purpose. Its very private with its own drive and outdoor seating area and even a BBQ pit.

I propsed to my partner while staying there (at the top of Kit Hill Park), so it will be in my memories forever. Thanks Frances!
