sleeps 2 · 1 bedroom · 1 shower room


this romantic retreat for couples is the perfect bolthole from which to explore the nearby coast and countryside of Cornwall

Converted from the farm’s 17th Century cattle shed, Shippon is the perfect luxury bolthole for 2, graded 5 star Gold by VisitBritain. Full of character and charm, with its granite walls and old beams, the spacious open plan living area has a sofa and armchair arranged around the cosy wood-burning stove – ideal for snuggling up with a glass of wine after a day’s exploring. A well-equipped kitchen area with dining table overlooking the courtyard provides all you need for a relaxing holiday or short break. The romantic bedroom has a super-comfy king-size bed, exposed stone walls, vaulted ceiling and is beautifully furnished with antiques. There’s room for a travel cot too, if required. With luxuriously smooth 100% Egyptian cotton bedlinen, thick stone walls and black-out blinds you're sure to enjoy a restful night's sleep. There’s a luxurious, modern en-suite shower room with rainfall showerhead and a luxury range of natural toiletries. Fluffy white towels, bathrobes and slippers complete the 5 star experience. Throw open the double doors from the living room to your private courtyard - the perfect place for a sunny breakfast or barbecue or simply lie back on the sun-loungers and relax with a good book. We provide a complimentary Sunday newspaper and a welcome pack containing freshly baked and locally sourced Cornish provisions. An accessibility guide can be viewed here. Prices from £395 - £675 per week with short breaks starting from £200. Gift vouchers available.

The room was beautiful and had everything we needed. The barn had been restored expertly and the log burner, exposed brick and beams really gave the room the wow factor. We would definitely stay again.
