The Shippen a 3 star self catering cottage with VisitEngland is one of two cosy barns at Pitt Barn Cottages (The Shippen & The Stable) in central Cornwall. The Shippen is the perfect location to explore the beaches, moors and countryside of both Cornwall and Devon. The owners welcome you to stroll round their garden and lake at Pitt Barn or to sit down, chill out and watch the abundant wildlife at Pitt Barn Cottages. There are two grumpy geese, ducks, moorhens, nut hatches, goldfinches, dragonflies and fish to mention a few. All children need to be supervised at all times when visiting Pitt Barns' garden and lake.

The Shippen has a gate that encloses the patio, drive and parking areas from the country lane. The.sunny enclosed patio area has patio furniture and barbeque.

The kitchen door of the Shippen opens directly into the open plan living area with lounge, dining area and kitchenette. The lounge area has two settees, a coffee table and an electric wood burner fire in addition to an electric radiator. There is a television with Freeview, a DVD player and a CD/cassette/radio. The dining area caters for four. There is a well equipped kitchenette with an oven, a microwave, a combined washer/dryer, a small combined fridge/freezer (3 star) and iron.

All duvets, linen, towels, tea towels, kitchen roll, toilet rolls and cleaning materials are also provided.

There are two bedrooms and a separate bathroom with a bath with a shower attachment, a toilet and basin. The main bedroom has a king sized bed with room for a travel cot. There is a double wardrobe and a chest of drawers. The single bedroom has a three foot bed and a chest of drawers and coat hooks on the wall to hang clothes on.

The Shippen has a private water supply which tastes lovely and complies with water regulations

We always like to welcome our guests to their cottage. On arrival guests can either collect their keys from reception at Pitt Barn or phone the Owners to meet them at The Shippen.

Wi-fi is available at all times but only close to Pitt Barn as transmission is poor due to the thickness of the stone walls. Guests are always welcome to use the tables provided either outside reception or in the covered porch overlooking Pitt Barns' garden and lake. Telephone reception is variable due to Cornwalls' landscape.
