The Old Shippon is the oldest original part of the Cottage 
conversion being built for use as an agricultural building in 
the 19th Century. It has been sympathetically restored to
carefully blend the old with the new resulting in an 
interesting and relaxed living space.

The Old Shippon has a large open 
Kitchen / Dining area and Living 
Room with open ceilings over 12 
feet high providing a spacious and 
comfortable main living area. The 
original wooden beams have been
 retained and are one of the interior 
features common to both of the Cottages. 
There is an adjoining Double Bedroom and 
Shower Wet Room with Toilet. The Lounge 
opens out onto an enclosed large and lovingly
maintained Patio Garden Area with table and chairs.


Both the interior floor and external patio has been laid in Indian Flagstone providing a natural mix of colours and patterns giving a magnificent warm effect. You can even spot the odd fossilized plant in the patterns of the flagstones. A 42” Digital TV is mounted onto an exposed red brick wall providing another one of the many features of the property and there is the added convenience of a Blu Ray DVD Player ensuring that it is very easy to sit back in the sofa, switch off, relax and enjoy the surroundings.

The modern design Kitchen provides all of the amenities you would expect to find at home whilst not interfering with the Cottages’ traditional feel.

A skylight mounted in the roof just above the Kitchen area provides natural light throughout the day. However at night the dimmer controlled up lighting combined with the interior features and the high ceilings truly make the natural colours in the living space come alive.

The Bedroom is large and spacious with a double bed, double wardrobe and bedside cabinet. Additional storage is provided under the bed.  The Old Shippon can sleep 2 people. However the other Cottage, Swallows Rest, can sleep up to 4 people if required.  

The open feel extends into the design of the Shower Wet Room – no shower cubicles or curtains here to restrict your movement or space.  The carefully thought out design and high quality finish of The Old Shippon combined with its location guarantee that any stay will be enjoyable.
