This lovely barn conversion offers character and contemporary interiors while being an ideal base for exploring the local countryside.

Located in the quiet hamlet of Patchole, these converted detached holiday barns (HSSW and HRRG), offer a combination of both character and contemporary design. Spacious accommodation goes hand in hand with very good facilities and all the modern conveniences guests may require during their stay. Both barns overlook the courtyard of the owner’s farmhouse with sitting-out areas. Patchole is set in the heart of the North Devon countryside and is well suited for exploring this area. At Croyde and Woolacombe, some of the best and cleanest surf beaches in the country can be found, as well as many smaller coves and bays. Barnstaple, the regional town, offers a range of shops. Shop 1 mile, pub 2 miles.

Open-plan living room with sofa bed (alternative sleeping only)/dining room with slate floor and kitchen area. Double bedroom with 5ft bed and TV. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Spacious sitting room with sofa bed (alternative sleeping only), beams and wooden floor. Double bedroom with 6ft zip & link bed (can be twin beds on request), TV and en-suite shower with toilet.

    An excellent barn conversion with very welcoming owners. Providing beach and body surfing extras is a nice touch. Lovely peaceful location but well placed for North Devon attractions.

    The only real drawback is the lack of takeaways within a few miles ( not talking chippy's - of which their are two in coombe martin).

    We had a lovely stay in the Shippen. Our hosts Clive and Pauline were very helpful and were kind enough to even bake a cake for us on arrival.

    Clive and Pauline provide a very good service in a very comfortable environment. This was our third visit and was as enjoyable as ever. We scored local amenities lower as there are none. You need to travel 7 miles to the nearest supermarket, and a little further for beaches. Having said that, it is central to several towns like Barnstable, Braunton , Lynton and Ilfracombe.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. The local shop is 15 mins walk away which is a shop/post office and garage. There are shops, fish and chips and cafes, butcher and beach 2 miles away in Combe Martin.
