    We very much appreciated the tasteful furnishing and decor with many added features that made our stay not just comfortable but extra special. Too many to list but overall just a wonderful experience being in the deep country setting with woods, a bubbling brook and orchard filled with birdsongs. Exactly as we'd hoped for. The added advantage of being able to bring our dog was very much appreciated as well. Thanks Phil for creating this perfectly relaxing environment.

    We have stayed in many cottages, most of them have been lovely but this one is absolutely exceptional. Lovely location in the countryside with plenty of walks but only four miles from Okehampton The interior of the cottage was fabulous. The owner had gone to so much trouble to ensure everything was styled in such a way that we couldn't fault anything. It was super clean, flowers on table and biscuits and milk ect to start us off. What more could you ask for.

    Lovely,extremely well presented accomodation, tranquil location. Peaceful unspoiled woodland. Watched the local birds of prey soar and swoop from the large window overlooking the valley. Even saw a large pure white deer whilst walking the woods below. Okehampton close by (approx15mins)for all your amenities. Known at time of booking so can't be given any negatives..

    The overall accommodation was good, but we did struggle with the bedroom size, with not much storage space. We hadn't slept in double bed for years and found it a bit cramped, ( we sleep in a king size) but overall the week we spent in Shippen Cottage was enjoyable.
