We hired the cottage for one week in June and were not dissapointed.
We are family of 4 with 2 children- 2yrs old and 9weeks, we went away with our friends who had a 3 year old and 3 month old baby. The cottage catered exactly for our needs and baby cots were provided which were far better than any travel cot.
All rooms are ample sizes and it's nice that the kitchen splits the two sleeping areas each with their own bathroom which makes sharing the accommodation really easy.
We had a food shop delivered and although it arrived early we were very lucky that Sarah was there to help.
The outside space was perfect. Completely fenced in and safe for our children and great for them to look out over the fields with sheep and cows in. Some toys were already at the cottage which was great for the kiddies.
Wi-fi is provided but unfortunately we had a few connectivity issues, although we were too fussed and isolated us from the normal rat race!
I can't fault the service we received from Sarah. Our little girl left her bunny behind and Sarah did a little search and rescue and kindly posted bunny back to us which was really appreciated and so very kind.
We would most definitely recommend this cottage and will be looking to book again.

A fantastic time was had. Great cottage , very attentive hosts. Lots of little lovely touches such as toys left out for our daughter and the opportunity to bottlefeed the lambs. The only problem we had was that the cottage wasn't very sound proof so our baby's crying woke up the whole house!
Lovely property. Well stocked and clean. Stunning views. A great family holiday. Definitely going back
We had a lovely stay in 'the old shippon' cottage. We had a warm welcome from Sarah and Andrew, along with some yummy fresh eggs. Very comfortable luxury accommodation. Great underfloor heating. Some very nice walks in the beautiful countryside surrounding the cottage. Thanks for the lamb feeding, the kids loved it! Don't hesistate to book here.
Stayed at the old shippon with my wife 2 kids and my friend and his kids. The accommodation was spotless, well decorated, clean and homely. The views are amazing from the garden. Sarah was there on my arrival and showed me around. Sarah's daughter also showed the kids around the farm, and let them feed and hold the farm animals. The local pub is friendly and food is amazing. Can't rate this place highly enough will book again if we can find a free week!!
the cottage continues to be ageless and immaculate. Everything was clean throughout and with the underfloor heating it ensured that the tempature was maintained at a comfortable level despite the cold weather outside.
The hosts as always were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The local pub remains a friendly place to go for a drink and a nice bite to eat although the option now to get lamb and/or beef reared on the farm from the owner is a great addition as it tastes wonderful.
Location is great for those quiet walks round the village or for travelling to Wales. It is a place to visit any time of the year.
