    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    The Old Shippon at Dunsdon Farm, an historic 54 acre farm, situated in picturesque North Devon countryside adjoining the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve, with its rare culm grasslands, yet only seven miles from the North Cornwall coastline.

    The Old Shippon is a beautifully restored stone barn, set within a historic farm courtyard setting, (with its own private entrance and garden). Restored in 2011 to a very high standard, the cottage features solid oak staircase, doors and skirting and has been decorated with a contemporary feel, yet still retaining the charm of its historic agricultural past.

    The Old Shippon boasts three good-sized bedrooms, sleeping six people, and a reverse layout with bright open-plan living space, all under-floor heated.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The Old Shippon is a beautifully converted three bedroom property (sleeping six) offering Luxury accommodation over two floors, and a reverse layout to take advantage of the views.

    The Old Shippon is situated within an historic farm courtyard setting, (with its own private entrance and garden) where some of the buildings are thought to have dated from the medieval period. The land has been farmed on this site for many hundreds, (possibly thousands) of years, the farm being recorded in the Doomesday book.

    When renovating the property, significant attention was paid to its historic setting and maintaining its character as an historic agricultural building, whilst providing accommodation of the highest standard.

    Also with the British weather in mind we have tried to make the property as co...

We visited out of season in March to celebrate a 60th birthday. Our party of seven was two young couples, an enthusiastic German Shepherd and of course a rather older couple. We all loved it. The Old Shippon is beautiful and superbly equipped. It was perfect for a family celebration whilst located within easy striking distance of many things to... more

Old Shippon is quite simply the best place we've holidayed in the UK by a long way. It is a truly wonderful holiday home in a stunning setting. We loved it and we'll certainly be back. In our experience many dog friendly holiday homes can fall short of expectations, but not so Old Shippon. It is beautifully furnished, comfortable, spotlessly... more
