About the property

The Shippen can be booked online from the page: http://www.theshippenfowey.co.uk/

The Shippen is a pretty, stone-built, holiday cottage set in the tranquil historic town of Fowey, Cornwall.

The cottage is one of a small cluster of barns nestling in the heart of two and a half acres of Lawhyre landscaped gardens.

Completely surrounded by fields, yet only a short walk to Readymoney Beach, this secluded cottage offers a relaxing self-catering holiday location in one of Cornwall's prettiest coastal towns.

The Shippen is a detached single story Cornish barn sympathetically renovated into a cosy cottage. It has thick stone walls, exposed beams and central heating providing a homely setting all year round. The cottage boasts a large, bright open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, a bathroom and two bedrooms sleeping up to four.

Outside, the cottage has its own individual private garden with lawn, hedge and stone walls - offering a secluded and safe space for both children and dogs. The beautiful flower and shrub borders, gravel patio and garden furniture make an idyllic setting to enjoy the lovely views of the countryside.

The Shippen overlooks open fields at the head of a pretty wooded valley leading to the beach at Readymoney Cove, a gentle 10 minute stroll through trees and wild flowers.

Brochures, maps, guidebooks and information on the locality are provided in the cottage.

Up to two dogs are welcome at The Shippen to accompany you during your stay. The Shippen is listed on the Dog Friendly page of My Favourite Holiday Cottages, a useful resource for dog owners trying to find the ideal cottage.

The Lounge

The triple aspect lounge area has a 37" flat-screen colour TV with Freeview HD, WiFi, comfortable sofas, coffee tables, dining table and chairs, magazines, books and games and central heating. The sofas convert to a comfortable double bed, offering alternative sleeping accommodation to the twin bedroom, which is accessed via the main bedroom. There is a patio door that leads to a pleasant seating area with lovely open views.

The Kitchen

Fully fitted and well-equipped with a washing machine, fridge freezer, electric oven with ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, crockery, cutlery and utensils.

Bedrooms

There are two cosy, bright bedrooms, bedroom one is a double, the second bedroom is a twin (see below) and is accessed via bedroom one. Each room has good quality linens and ample storage space.

Bathroom

The bathroom has a bath with shower over, washbasin and WC.

The Garden

In addition to its own private front garden and fenced dining terrace overlooking open fields, The Shippen is set in well-maintained landscaped gardens, shared with other holiday cottages. This includes a children's playground (a great way to enable them to make friends), barbeque area, and clothes dryers.

*A large parking area is available at the cottage.

The Shippen can be booked online from the page: http://www.theshippenfowey.co.uk/

Quiet, well equipped, dog friendly cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We (me, my husband and dog) had a very relaxing stay at The Shippen. We found the cottage to be clean, well maintained and well equipped. The outside area was great for eating outdoors and relaxing in the sun. We found the location to be excellent- far enough from the town to be quiet but within easy walking distance of Fowey to take advantage of the shops, bars and restaurants. There were lots of lovely walks in the vicinity, including through woods, along cliffs and to beaches. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Shippen. Thank you, Julie.

Wonderful cottage, superb location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage exceeded our expectations. Everything we needed was to hand, beautifully decorated and very sympathetic to the period features of the dwelling. Perfect enclosed garden for our dog, felt safe and secure for our girls (the small park area was a bonus) and great to sit outside enjoying the sunshine watching them play. They loved the quirky nature of their bedroom. Around the corner from a fab woodland walk, leading to a beautiful cover. Perfect, relaxing holiday

Beautiful Fowey

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely. Cottage is equipped with everything you need for a lovely time. Brilliant position (even though the hill's a killer!) and membership to the spa a lovely added bonus. Booked for 2016 even before we left.

A great holiday venue and a great holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year at The Shippen and it never disappoints (unlike the weather). The cottage is clean, well-equipped and comfortable. Set well back from the road in a gated property with its own private grade space there is no road noise and we can let the kids play without worry. The footpath down to Readymoney Beach is a great bonus feature too. A great cottage in wonderful Fowey. We will be back!

Peaceful Cornish Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was immaculate on arrival with every facility required.

Positioned just outside Fowey with easy walk to the beautiful Readymoney beach and the coastal footpath made this an ideal location - great walks from the cottage - stunning area.

The cottage has a nice private garden ideal for sunbathing and the added bonus of use of the swimming pool/ spa just a short walk away made the whole holiday a wonderful experience that I will repeat very soon.

beautiful

  • 5 of 5

It was our fourth visit to the Shippen and as always never failed to impress us. The cottage has everything you need , the Larwyre estate is very peaceful. Fowey is an ideal place to explore Cornwall. We would recommend The Shippen to everyone.
