The Shippon was formerly a cowshed and is approached from the cobbled yard by a rustic stone staircase. Entrance is through a stable door into a new shaker style kitchen with dishwasher and electric cooker through into and cottage style lounge/diner with picture window onto the ornamental duck pond. The ceilings are heavily beamed throughout. There is a new central heating system which will keep you warm and cosy with unlimited hot water. The Bathroom was recently refitted with a bath with shower over, off an inner hall and two bedrooms sleeping up to four people. There is a private garden 30 metres from the cottage with table and chairs and wonderful views down our valley to the Brendon Hills.
You are most welcome to walk in the fields across the farm, we will let you know where we have livestock when you arrive.
“Highly recommend a stay at this cottage. It is located in a stunning area which we found incredibly easy to get to. There are lots of walks for people of all abilities and plenty of local pubs around – we went to one of the pubs that Chris recommended in Exford and it was definitely worth a visit. The cottage itself was clean, spacious and had a cosy, homely feel to it. The log fire was an absolute delight in the evenings. Absolutely loved this place”.
