Converted stone barn in Exmoor, sleeping up to 4 guests
Just got back from a wonderful holiday. Really comfortable and homely cottage within beautiful surroundings. Although the weather wasn’t brilliant it didn’t deter us from having a lovely holiday. . The owners were very accommodating and would thoroughly recommend. Thank you 😊�
Very pleasant stay at the heart of Exmoore
We stayed in the cottage for 4 days during August bank holiday. The cottage is very beautiful similar to those in the fairy tales. It was clean, cosy and well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the stove added charm to the sitting room.
The kids enjoyed the animals in the farm. The cottage is situated in a perfect place to explore Exmoore.
Thank you Chris & Freya for your hospitality.
Quiet and peaceful place, perfect to relax
The Cottage, clean, cosy and comfortable, had all we needed and made our stay very relaxing. It is a good starting point to discover the beauties of Exmoor.
Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Often referred to as England's best kept secret, Exmoor is a wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.
The Shippon is ideal located for exploring Exmoor, being about 20 minutes from many of the key moorland attractions, including Dunkery, Tarr Steps, Dulverton, Dunster, Wimbleball Lake and the list goes on!
Wheddon Cross (approx 2 miles) has a well-stocked mini-supermarket, Post Office facilities and petrol station with good opening times. The Rest & Be Thankful Inn is the village pub which serves food and is child and dog friendly. Exford is also approx 2 miles (in the other direction), there is a village shop and Post Office and two pubs. Minehead is the nearest town, approximately 12 miles from The Ballroom. Here you will find the larger supermarkets and petrol stations (Tesco and Morrison's are both situated on the outskirts of the town and have longer opening hours), most major high street banks with cash machines, plus a range of other shops throughout the town.
