The Old Shippon

The feeling of space hits you as soon as you walk into the large kitchen/diner area of The Old Shippon with open ceilings and original exposed beams, the well equipped kitchen has an electric double oven & hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and 50/50 fridge freezer. There are three steps down into the living room which has double doors leading out onto the patio & private enclosed garden area.  The view from the living room and garden is unspoilt and has often been referred to as a scene from a constable painting. A sofa bed and easy chairs are in the upstairs mezzanine area above the living room, an ideal place for a spot of bird watching or that early morning cup of tea.

The cottage is very well laid out for two families who, want to stay together, but also wish to have a bit of space to themselves, as two bedrooms and a bathroom are on one side of the holiday cottage and two bedrooms and a shower room are on the other side. A smart TV & DVD player are available in the living room as well as a selection of books, games & puzzles to enjoy.
