The Shippen is located within the Dartmoor National Park, 2 miles from Tavistock and sheltering privately in wooded farmland, is Grenofen Manor. The Shippen is a semi-detached ‘upside down’ cottage converted from an old milking parlour, one of many beautiful barns and stables which served the manor house. It has pretty views of well-kept flower-filled grounds and long views to the moor, and its own little secluded garden (table/chairs, barbecue) for sunbathing/snoozing (not ball games). Lots of footpaths around.

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, freezer, fridge, electric range-style cooker) with TV/DVD/Blu-ray and stable doors to little conservatory (cane chairs) leading to garden. Downstairs, two bedrooms – a double, and a twin (hooks for clothes-hanging); newly fitted shower-room (suite). Tumble drier and secure bicycle storage in part of garage opposite. A lovely quiet place.

Review

"The Shippen is a 'home from home' (rather than a holiday let). A quiet location but fabulous walks on the doorstep. We settled in immediately, as the property was immaculately clean, very comfortable and well equipped. Good quality bedding and towels add the finishing touches. A real bonus that it is pet friendly. A really relaxing weekend break." Sep 2016
