A Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I booked 3 nights in Shippon for my girlfriend's Birthday and we couldn't have been happier with the choice. Lorraine and Graham were lovely and the extra touches of a lovely cake and a 'Happy Birthday' bottle of Prosecco were above and beyond, and very much appreciated :o)

Shippon is Perfect for a couple, simply but beautifully finished to a very high standard, wooden floors, exposed beams and stone walls, what's not to like. The kitchen has everything you'll need if you self cater and the bedroom and en-suite were luxury. It was so nice coming in of an evening after a long walk, or a surf and sitting in front of a roaring log burner in the open plan lounge.

Lorraine and Graham's property combines that great feeling of being in the middle of nowhere but not actually being that far from some very beautiful parts of Cornwall, Padstow, Polzeath Beach, Port Isaac etc are all within very easy reach.

I would thoroughly recommend Lorraine and Graham's accommodation to anyone, and would definitely consider staying there again myself. Great hosts, a truly lovely high quality property and in a great location.

Sehr schöne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit auf der Tredarrup-Farm. Die Wohnungen sind sehr gemütlich und schön eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts. Alles war sehr sauber und stilistisch alles aufeinander abgestimmt. Die Farm liegt sehr ruhig, man kann dort herrlich entspannen. Die Vermieterin Abi ist ein Schatz. Sehr hilfsbereit, sehr freundlich und immer ansprechbar. Bei der Ankunft haben wir selbstgebackenen Kuchen und frische Eier von Abi's Hühnern vorgefunden, sehr lecker.

Wer einen ruhigen Urlaub in einer Traumlocation in Cornwall machen will, sollte hier unbedingt ein Appartment mieten.

Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!
