“Superb cottage in ideal location for Dartmoor.”
Reviewed 14 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Shippon is in great location on edge of Dartmoor. Okehampton close by for shops and local village pub excellent for food. Cottage ideal for family of 4, we had 2 older teenagers. Jackie and Wilf very friendly and excellent hosts. Cottage nice and warm, it was a bit chilly in April but not a problem. Good secure parking off road. We would definitely use again if in area.

“Brilliant Time”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed at the Shippn over Easte with familyr. The weather could have been better but it was great to go back to a warm cottage at the end of a day out. Great central location, you are about 40 mins from either coast so plenty of choice about where you visit. Jackie and Ralph are very friendly and are interested in where you go and how you got on. Would really recommend the cottage.

“A perfect Dartmoor getaway”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The Shippon at Coombe Head Farm is a delightful place to stay for a visit to Dartmoor. The cottage is fully equipped and very comfortable. Be sure to make a visit to Sticklepath for excellent food and drink at the Taw River Inn. The cottage is very conveniently located to Sticklepath and also to Okehampton, so all shopping facilities are easily accessible. Our host, Jackie, was extremely welcoming, helpful and friendly. I would recommend this charming property to anyone.

“A real home from home.”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I stayed at the Shippon along with our two children (9 and 4 years old) for a week in August and had a lovely time. It is a very comfortable and well-equipped cottage and Jackie and Ralph were extremely friendly and helpful. During our stay we explored Dartmoor and travelled north for a day out at the lovely Woolacombe beach. Rainy days were spent exploring the National Trust properties nearby - Castle Drogo is fun. Okehampton is close for buying food etc. but a real recommendation is the Taw River Inn just up the road in Sticklepath lovely home cooked food and an excellent range of beer, all very good value too. It's a great place from which to explore Devon and we have already talked about coming back. :-)
