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.

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.
