The Devon region

The region is beautiful, Huish Moor is very near the sea and also Exmoor. We are in a rural farming community which has lots to offer the visitor. Unspoilt countryside all around. Wonderful walking on the Taka trail South West costal path and along beaches. Quaint villages, and farmers markets to visit our village Instow is one of the nicest .

Instow

Situated in an attractive hillside position with magnificent far reaching views over the estuary of the River Taw to Saunton Down and up to the hills of Exmoor. The sandy beach of Instow is only two and a half miles away.

"A Wonderful Family Holiday!"

Angi and Tim provided us with a very warm welcome and we felt at home stright away, they could not have been any more helpful or approachable!This converted barn is clean and very confortable and it is in a very beautiful location with fantastic views.It is within easy reach of all the surrounding sights and attractions and very easy to find your way around.We had a wonderful family holiday at The Shippen and we would thoroughly recommend it.(Obviously you would have to have a car to stay at this destination I would say.)
