Overview

About the property

Barn in Bude, Cornwall, England - Peaceful, Rural Location, Under 3 Miles From The Coast At Bude

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. The kitchen is open plan with the living room on the ground floor. A 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 double-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 Torridge

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, plus close to many other lovely beaches, the coastal path and visitor attractions in both Devon and Cornwall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely cottage - very close to great attractions and many pubs and restaurants. Lots of space in the cottage and super-comfy beds. Would recommend.

Wonderful - Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Shippen Stratton

  • 4 of 5

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.

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

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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.

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE,FANTASTIC LOCATION,

  • 5 of 5

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
