Step Inside...

Converted from the farm’s 18th Century cattle shed, Shippon is now transformed into the perfect dog-friendly luxury 1 bed cottage for romantic getaways and special occasions.

Full of character and charm, inside you’ll find granite walls, vaulted and beamed ceilings and warm oak flooring. The spacious open plan living area has a large sofa with chaise arranged around the cosy wood-burning stove. It’s the ideal spot for snuggling up with a glass of wine after a day exploring Cornwall. The country-style kitchen area, with dining table, is equipped with all you need for a relaxing holiday or short break.

The romantic king-size bedroom has a luxuriously comfortable upholstered bed from Hypnos, makers of the world’s most comfortable beds. With luxury Egyptian cotton bedlinen, thick stone walls and black-out blinds you’re sure to enjoy a restful night’s sleep. The modern en-suite shower room has a range of luxury natural toiletries. Bathrobes and fluffy white towels complete the 5 star experience.

Throw open the double doors from the living room to your private courtyard. It’s the perfect place for a sunny breakfast or barbecue. Or simply lie back on the sun-loungers and relax with a good book. The additional shared garden has seating areas from which to enjoy the wonderful views. And here you’ll find a gate through to the smallholding, with its range of friendly farm animals and acres of space to roam.
