“Absolutely stunning”
Reviewed 28 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My husband and I have recently returned from a 4 night stay here. The cottage was of an excellent standard and the views were absolutely stunning my husband particularly enjoyed the log burning fire (kept the whole place warm). The cottage itself is a perfect size for two people with all the things you could possibly need. It was so nice to be able to get away from the 'real' world we didn't want to come home!

“Fantastic one bed cottage in Dartmoor”
Reviewed 21 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We booked Yonder Shippon for a long weekend (3 nights) in November.

The cottage itself is lovely and equipped with everything you could possibly need, and much more besides! Everything is finished to a very high standard, and even though it was November, the log fire and radiators provided plenty of warmth.

The location is excellent for exploring the moors and is easily accessible from Exeter.

I would point out that the property has a spiral staircase up to the bedroom, which might not be so suitable for much older guests, but is no problem for most people.

The only thing that I think the property was missing was somewhere to hang up wet/muddy clothes after a day's walking.

I would highly recommend a stay here, and we will definitely be coming back!
