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.

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.
