    Beautiful setting and lovely cottage. The only drawback was the small second bedroom which felt a bit cramped. Despite this we would definitely stay again.

    The cottage was lovely but the long drive along a single track road was not so good hence the low rating for location.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; The two mile road to Shippen Cottage is like many in Devon and Cornwall, single track, but it has plenty of passing places, and it is tarred. Sometimes it can get a bit muddy if the farmer is working his fields and it is raining but we have an alternative access, which we can show you when you arrive.
