Shippen Cottage, EAST ROSE
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Shippen cottage, one of seven cottages on site at East Rose, was originally home to some of the farm animals, and converted into a holiday cottage in 1995. The cottage has one double bedroom, a large shower room, open plan kitchen/lounge with dining area and night storage heating.

The West Country region
Bodmin Moor is a unique upland where more than 10,000 acres of unspoilt open moor has provided unfettered grazing for ponies, sheep and cattle for more than 6000 years. The sense of freedom that comes from being amongst this remote and most beautiful of areas adds to the richness of the holiday experience and makes a startling contrast with the nearby North Cornish Coast.
Tranquil, remote and romantic, the ancient moor is a timeless place where it is easy to find peace away from the modern world. Climb the summit of Brown Willy and you have literally left the 21st Century behind.
The rugged boulder-strewn tors have changed little over the centuries. The sense of freedom and the fascination with the wildlife, particularly to those who lead busy city lives, is immediately striking.
The closest village to East Rose is St Breward. Located right on the edge of Bodmin Moor, it provides the perfect retreat for families with many great places for a picnic, and endless amounts of freedom for children and dogs!
In complete contrast to the moor, yet so readily accessible, the superb North Cornish Coast offers everything you would expect from one of the most spectacular coastlines in the country; rugged cliffs, intimate sandy coves, sheltered harbours, fishing villages and beautiful open beaches. Tintagel, Port Isaac, Boscastle and Padstow are all within a gentle thirty minute drive from East Rose.
To many, it is Tintagel, just seven miles from East Rose as the crow flies, that conjures up the spirit of North Cornwall; the spectacular Castle combined with the magical Arthurian Legend set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.
To walk along some of the open, white, sandy beaches such as Rock, Daymer Bay, Harlyn Bay and Polzeath or to spend an afternoon in the intimacy of Bossiney or Lundy Coves is a holiday experience that will always linger in the memory.
