Barn In Stratton, Nr Bude, Cornwall

Overview

Property

Updated: 01-Dec-2016
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 sheltered courtyard 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 the Owner

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!

Thank you for a lovely time spent staying at The Shippen. First class distance from Bude and beautifully quiet. When you are lucky with the weather as we were, you can't help have a glorious week away. Cottage was wonderful and just as we had hoped. Many thanks.

A lovely quietly situated cosy cottage very near Bude , its beaches and other areas of interest . A welcome cream tea on arrival , logs for the wood burner and comfy beds for a goodnights sleep after long days out exploring made our stay at The Shippen perfect . Not the greatest of weather for our week but I imagine that the little suntrap of private patio and BBQ would have been put to good use if the sun had lingered just a little longer :-) No matter though as the kitchen had all pots , pans and utensils we needed to cook and enjoy ... roast lamb ... duck ... fish pie

Thank you Ro :-) ...

Lovely...

  • 5 of 5

We has a lovely week's break here despite Cornwall not being very kind to us weather wise....The Shippen was a lovely little place to stay and even a problem with the bathroom was sorted straight away by the owners...the place was very clean, the bedding and towels of the highest quality and beds were most comfortable.... There was everything you needed there to provide a nice holiday away from home and we had a wonderful week visiting Cornwall's beautiful attractions... Thank you ,Ro, it is our pleasure to be able to recommend The Shippen.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a lovely stay at The Shippen. Modern, clean decor, high quality throughout: really comfy beds, fabulous bedding and towels. The washer/drier was really useful; we enjoyed the log burner in the evenings and playing the board games too. Highly recommend!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Shippen from the 4th-11th of June. We really could not ask for anything more. Me, my Fiancee and our dog Jake had a lovely week there. It was exactly what we needed!

When we first walked in, we felt at home straight away. Clean, tidy and everything that you would need. Nice clean comfy beds with fresh linen and towels. We even had scones, cream, jam and a pint of milk waiting for us.

Our dog Jake loved having such big walks literally on the door step. We mainly went out in the car exploring in the day, followed by an evening walk over the fields which are literally 100 feet to the back of the barn. Then it was time to light the BBQ, enjoy a few drinks, then off inside to light the log fire and get cozy.

Great communication from start to finish from the lovely owner Ro.

We definitely recommend a stay at The Shippen. We really enjoyed our week there and will be back to stay again in the future.
