Sticklepath, Okehampton, Dartmoor National Park, Devon, England
Self-catering in Devon for up to 4 people in a picturesque, converted granite barn. The Shippon is located on the northern edge of Devon's Dartmoor National Park, just outside the market town of Okehampton.

'We really enjoyed our stay. The hou...

About the neighbourhood
The Shippon is on the northern edge of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park. If you enjoy walking or cycling, there are miles of pathways on the moor for you to explore.
Okehampton is the nearest town, about 3 miles away. Here you'll find shops, pubs and restaurants.
The moorland village of Belstone is 1 mile away. It has a good pub that serves food, as well as a cute tea room that serves cream teas (not open every day). Directly opposite the entrance to The Shippon is a footpath and bridle path that leads to Belstone, or to the village of Sticklepath, taking you through the picturesque Skaigh Valley.
