The Shippen details

The Shippen is in a remarkable,elevated position allowing views that stretch several miles along and across the Yarty River Valley with its pattern of small irregular fields and copses. Families describe The Shippen as being very 'child-friendly'. It is enveloped by accessible woodlands, apple orchards and farm fields.

At the end of a long, shared drive, amids thedge-lined winding lanes, badgers, deer, rabbits, (40 species of moth were counted on a June evening) and various birds of prey are commonly seen and a bluebell wood is a short walk away. A weir pool with a salmon ladder lies along one of the many footpaths nearby. Within five miles, there are three superb local family run farm shops, the River Cottage Canteen, and a choice of nearby pubs renowned for good food and beer.

Cider is made in the main barn and guests are encouraged to help themselves from the barrel. Photography and descriptions can't come close to capturing the scale and loveliness of the surroundings.

Within a 20 minute drive is the seaside town of Lyme Regis, part of the Jurassic Coast, the World Heritage Site famous for fossils. Branscombe, Beer, Axmouth,and Charmouth, are only a little further down the coast. Within an easy 40 minute drive are Dartmoor and Exmoor.

The antiques and second hand book town of Honiton is on the way to the Devon Cathedral city of Exeter. Just over the border into Dorset are many Iron Age hill forts. Astronomy enthusiasts will appreciate the Dark Sky area.
