Cornish Oasis

The Shippen is a superbly presented beautifully located hide-away. The peace and utter silence are sublime. If, like me, you are interested in wildlife its sheer heaven. We loved it and will recommend it to all my friends

Magical Hide-away

This is one of the most magical hide-aways. We had the Easter break of our dreams; so cosy, wild, easy-living, beautiful scenery and such a comfy bed. We're already plotting our return.

Magical Place

This has been such a magical peaceful place; we have loved being so close to the wildlife. Thank you so much.

Lovely cottage in beautiful location

Very well equipped cottage in a stunning location. Great for wildlife watching and very peaceful. We loved watching and listening to the birds while having our breakfast.

Tranquil Refuge

Lovely hosts, cottage and setting. Perfect peace.

Fantastic wildlife

Wonderful few days here; we loved every minute! Fantastic watching the wildlife from our window. We'll definitely be back.

Perfect Tonic and Restful Holiday

Jon and Janice were most discrete; but always available to offer advice on exploring the reserve and it's hidden wildlife treasures. The perfect location to unwind and a perfect tonic. Thank You.

Truly Enchanting

We have had a truly enchanting stay in this magical hide-away. Jack was thrilled to see the illusive kingfisher and we have thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the tranquil garden listening to nature. The shippen is spotless and comfortable.

Hidden Gem

Absolutely lovely, peaceful location and very well equipped cottage. We had a really pleasant stay at The Shippen surrounded by woodland and plentiful wildlife. A hidden Gem!
