“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a great stay, such a beautiful and peaceful location. Do take the footpath behind the Shippen, well worth the effort
My wife was woken up on her birthday to the dawn chorus accompanied by the sheep and lambs, a really baaaaaarmy time!.
Jeanie & Hubby are such a welcoming couple, thank you.

“Wow”
Reviewed March 23, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Wow great place to stay beautiful surroundings and everything we needed for a long relaxing weekend away. Jeannie & Paul the owners were welcoming and nothing seemed to much trouble and gave us lots of tips on the surrounding areas. It's not far from Bishops Castle which is worth a visit and I would recommend the breakfast at Poppy's House. Worth going for walks as the scenery is breathtaking. We will be returning again and would recommend The Shippen to family & friends.

“Perfect cosy get away”
Reviewed March 6, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Just returned from a weekend break at the Shippen with my husband, two children and dog! Had a fabulous time. Lovely modern barn conversion which was so well equipt and comfortable. Lovely friendly hosts made us feel very welcome and even brought us round a freshly baked loaf! Fabulous setting with stunning views and great walks from the doorstep. Would highly recommend and can't wait for a return visit!
