Recently awarded Cornish Quality status and furnished to a high standard, The Shippen gives a feeling of space and light with its mainly high vaulted and beamed ceilings. The property is kept warm and cosy in winter (and on cooler summer evenings) by the centrally placed log burner. We provide a complimentary box of logs for your stay. A large fireguard for child protection is kept in the porch. The kitchen is open plan with the living room on the ground floor. A step up and door then gives access to the bathroom and twin-bedded room, which also has a truckle bed for an extra child and a baby travel cot. The kingsized-bedded room is accessed by a spiral staircase from the living room. The sheltered courtyard with barbecue, table, chairs and sun shade is the perfect place to come back to at the end of a busy day and to enjoy a relaxing meal with a bottle of wine, catching the last rays of evening sun!

About Ro Flawn
We moved to Gloucestershire in 2008, having previously lived in Hertfordshire and having owned a holiday house in Suffolk. We've always loved Cornwall and decided last year to look for a family holiday property there. To our delight we found the Shippen!
Ro Flawn purchased this Barn in 2014
Why Ro Flawn chose Launcells
Staying at the Shippen you will get the best of both worlds! Just over 2 miles from the seaside at Bude and in a beautiful, rural location. Stratton village with excellent general store and 2 pubs is under a mile away. Close to many other lovely beaches, the coastal path and visitor attractions in both Devon and Cornwall.

Wonderful - Home from Home
We had a wonderful stay at The Shippen. Lovely quiet location - home from home. The local village and pubs are about a 20 minute walk away. Bude is a 10 minute drive away. Great location for travelling to other towns and villages. Would happily stay again.
Thank you so much for your review - I'm pleased you enjoyed your time in Cornwall. Having frequently rented holiday properties ourselves, we know what little things can make a holiday special and have tried to do the same at the Shippen. We hope to welcome you back at some time in the future.
Nice cosy barn in North Cornwall, ideal for long weekend. All amenities as stated and excellent directions. SUrrounded by country lanes but that is as expected. Very quiet but only a few minutes from Bude.
Thank you for your comments about the Shippen. I hope we will be welcoming you back sometime in the future - maybe for a longer break.
Lovely quiet Cottage
The Shippen is a lovely cottage in a quiet location and a good base for visiting Cornwall's attractions.
Well equipped kitchen with good quality kitchenware
Comfortable beds with good quality bed linen and towels
Lovely scones with jam and cream on arrival and some milk in the fridge was most welcome
Thank you so much for your review, I'm pleased you enjoyed your week at the Shippen. Hopefully, we will be welcoming you back sometime in the future.
Really nice comfortable place to stay
Great accommodation with everything you need, very comfortable and clean. Great base for all the places we wanted to go, been coming to Bude for a long time now and this is ideally situated and nice and quite.
Many thanks for your great review. I'm so glad you all enjoyed your stay at the Shippen and hope we might welcome you back at some future date.
We had a lovely fortnight at The Shippen which is in a nice, quiet location just outside of Stratton. The cottage was spotless and was well equipped to a high standard with all the essentials for a self catering holiday. The beds were comfortable and we felt well rested after our holiday. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely surprise and enjoyed by all.
Thank you so much for your great review and I'm pleased you enjoyed your holiday at the Shippen. You would be most welcome to revisit at sometime in the future.
BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE,FANTASTIC LOCATION,
A wonderfully well equipped cottage.
Set in a great location on a lovely quiet lane but only a mile to the local pub/shop and two miles to Bude.
The cottage itself is compact but well designed with good sized bedrooms and kitchen and was perfect for our needs.
Leaving a tub of peanuts for the birds is a great idea and we all spent some lovely time just watching the great variety of birds feeding next to the patio door.
The walks from the the cottage are just lovely and peaceful,and they differ depending on which way you turn when going out of the front door. I will say no more.
Finally a great big thank you to Ro and Nicky for making our holiday a really great one.
We will be back at the Shippen
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments - we look forward to welcoming you back to the Shippen again.
