We came to Shipley as it is close to the Knepp estate. The location was perfect for us, within a short walk of Knepp plus other footpaths, and close to an excellent pub. The accommodation was was just right, a good size and a great shower. Our host Nicky was extremely accommodating, she let us keep food in the fridge to pick up later. She is a very friendly lady and made us feel welcome and comfortable. If you're not one for dogs let her know as they have a dog who wanders around the garden. We were more than happy to see her ourselves.
This is a lovely and relaxing place to stay. We came for a short break and the owner was very welcoming and helpful, giving us useful advice/local knowledge that meant we made the most of our time. The cottage is really peaceful. The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering (although do be aware that there is no oven). It is furnished nicely with a lovely shower room and it felt like it was organised by someone who really cared about us having everything we needed. We would happily return.
This was my second visit to The Stable - Nicky is a great host and gave me a lovely welcome so that I immediately felt completely at home. The apartment is lovely with everything I needed and the location is amazing with views over the open countryside and within easy driving distance of the South Coast.
There is also a good pub 5 mins walk away - the George and Dragon - where I spent a really nice evening. I was sad to leave and will definitely be back!
