We spend 10 nights in the Shippen Cottage and loved it.
Cosy and comfortable with a fantastic log-burner. The kitchen is well equipped and the main bedroom on the mezzfloor is fantastic. It’s a perfect combination of rustic and luxury at the same time (everything was spotlessly clean).
The landlords are very friendly, nothing was too much for them. They even shared the produce of their chickens with us, resulting in having a great breakfast every morning.
The surrounding is peaceful and tranquil with only a stream nearby, hence the best night sleep I had in ages.
Highly recommendable and we will be back next year
We stayed in the Shippen cottage in a very secluded area so peaceful love to come back after a day out light the fire and have a meal and glass of wine in a nice cosy atmosphere and the chickens running freely in the garden. We will be back next year. Thank you
What a fantastic place to get away from our busy lives & with our dog too.
The cottage is beautiful, super clean, comfortable, well equipped & set in such beautiful surroundings.
Short drive to beautiful Talland Bay, Looe & Polperro.
Nothing is too much trouble for the owners & they made us feel so welcome.
Had the most relaxed holiday ever!!
Will definitely go back & would recommend it if you want to get away for some peace & quiet.
A little bit of heaven in Cornwall
We had a lovely stay for one week in Shippen Cottage. Faye (the owner) and her family were all very friendly and immediately made us feel very welcome.
The child friendly gardens with plenty of play equipment to use, kept the children entertained for the time we spent around the cottage, but just a short 15 min drive away in ether direction is Looe and Polperro.
The cottage is very clean and has all the amenities that you would require for a self-catering holiday. The main supermarkets all deliver to the door, with Sainsbury's being very reliable for us. The cottage sits in a beautiful valley with a stream running past. There are plenty of walks through the forest, with a café stop at the end. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others.
Shippen cottage is a spacious delight. Set in woodland with a couple of other cottages around it is a real idyll. I spent a week there between jobs when I was looking for somewhere peaceful to study. I loved the open space and the balcony style bedroom. The grounds of Tresarran are beautiful with walks in the woods a real peaceful treat. You feel like you are the only person on earth. There is wifi if you don't want to "get away from it all". There is a wood burner in the cottage but as I was on my own I didn't give it a go - though if (when) I return with my family I will try it out.
