“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 15 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

So our first visit to The Shippon and what a treat beautiful and so so peaceful. Our work is demanding and yet despite months of hard work and a five plus hour drive to get there (don't ask) as soon as we arrived chill relax and the Shippon effect.
In all my travels I have never been so chilled out sitting in the garden with amazing views birdsong and sheep WOW

A big log burner took more of our attention than any tv programme. A really comfy bed meant really restful night's.

Not the best weather on our visit but it's Wales wet in the morning lovely in the afternoon lots to do within a short drive and none of it over priced a big Tesco nearby for essential supplies.

The ultimate accolade is that we have booked again already and cannot wait to return we will be regular visitors. The owners Andrew and Sarah are lovely there if you need them but not intrusive.

For those people that complain about low beams in their reviews learn to duck if not laugh it off it's your fault not the building.

This is a truly wonderful cottage. The location is perfect for a nice quiet break. The owners are very friendly and we will be going back again. Very dog friendly too. Thank you

“Brilliant location for exploring the region, with walks at your doorstep or within a short drive”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Loved the cottage and the location! The fire was exceptionally nice. The bed very comfy and the sounds of the countryside, devine! Especially for us Londoners. Supplies were a bit frugal. For instance when we arrived there was a basket not quite full of wood and not much kindling but we were asked to pay £5 for an 'extra' basket of wood. An empty black pepper container was in the cupboard and there were no clips or elastic bands which are really handy for keeping one's food fresh. We were going to have a BBQ but it was filthy so we fried our steaks instead. Having said this....we would go back! Because of the location, the lovely cottage and the owners were friendly but not intrusive. It is true what everyone else has been saying about the beams! Mind your head! My partner and I are both only 5'5" and we found them a little low ( he hit his head 4 or 5 times and it was painful! ) we joked that they should call it Hobbit House. I would suggest that the owners provide: more wood and kindling on arrival; look into getting a couple of beam cushions for those low beams; provide a list of what cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils there are so that we can bring our own of whatever we find useful that the cottage may not have. Another cottage we visited does this and it's a brilliant idea. And chuck that BBQ for a new one ( and ask people to clean the BBQ after themselves! ) These niggly things are the only reason we give it 4 stars instead of 5.

“Relaxing and welcoming in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This is a very appealing and comfortable rustic accommodation. It has charm and makes you feel very relaxed. It is well equipped and comfortable. It has a homely, individual feel. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The open plan living lends itself well. only slight draw back would be the number of low beams which I managed to hit with my head several times! Other than that a pretty perfect place to escape the world and enjoy the countryside. Would definitely go again!

“Cosy and quiet base for exploring Snowdonia”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The cottage was clean and cosy, quite small but perfectly adequate for 2 people. The owner met us on arrival and was very friendly, and even lent us a book on local archaeology, but then left us alone and was not at all intrusive. The kitchen is small but has everything you need. A large basket of logs and coal were provided for the fire, which was set ready for lighting when we arrived. However, the cottage was warm and cosy and we only used the fire once. The site was quiet and peaceful, and made a good base for exploring Snowdonia. Conwy with local amedities is only a short drive away and there are many walks you can do from the doorstep. The narrow lanes leading to the property were not a problem. We were allowed to use the field outside the cottage which was great for our 2 dogs. The resident dog was very friendly and came to visit a few times. The only negatives were the low entrance door, and steep stairs under low beams going up to the mezzanine bedroom. Not a problem for me but my 6'2'' husband banged his head a few times. The cottage wouldn't be suitable for anyone with mobility problems, but is great providing you don't mind ducking your head in some areas. We would definitely visit again.
