The location was deep in the countryside just outside Barnstable. The owner was on hand at all times, very helpful. Our young children enjoyed the farm animals and the garden play area. Adults were happy to have quiet evenings as was our Wippett who was worn out running on the beach during the day.(20 mins drive to a good beach...

We stayed during the start of August and were welcomed by Graham into The Shippon. The accommodation itself is large enough for the kids to be watching DVDs in one room while I and the adults enjoyed the Olympics. The kitchen was big enough to cater for everyone's different needs, space to keep the beers and wine for the ladies....

Management response:

We are glad that you had a great holiday and it was a pleasure having you stay with us.

A great place for a family holiday, lovely location and well equipped comfortable accommodation. The children really loved feeding the animals and collecting the eggs, Greame makes each child feel important they hang on his every word. A holiday to keep the whole family happy.

Management response:

We are glad that you had an enjoyable stay.
