We had such a wonderful few days in Shippen - beautiful accommodation and such lovely welcoming touches - thank you for the delicious cake and chutney. Our dog loved his walks in the field and meeting the ducks, geese chickens and turkeys. Thank you!

Carole & T,

Thank you for a lovely week at Shippen and a lovely welcome from the owners and Nutty. The barn is beautiful and you have thought of everything. The delicious cake and chutney was an added bonus. Loved the owl observatory. Fantastic walks and scenery and excellent for bird watching.
