“A Wonderful Family Holiday!”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2013

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.)
