The Shippon is a beautifully restored 14th century stone farm building set in a private valley on Exmoor.
The Shippon kitchen is fitted with fridge (with freezer compartment), microwave, electric oven and hob. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, a variety of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses.
A television with Freeview, DVD player and DAB radio is provided and wireless broadband is available throughout the property. An iron, ironing board and hair dryer are also provided for your convenience.
A clothes airer can be made available for your use on request.
A travel cot and high chair can be made available for your use. Please request these items at the time of booking so we can make sure they are ready for your arrival.
Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. The Shippon benefits from central heating fueled by biomass boiler, which keeps the property nice and cosy during the cooler months. There is a Wood Burning Stove to add ambiance to cold winter's nights.
Bed linen, duvets, blankets and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you on day trips.
Tea, coffee, sugar and milk are provided to ensure you can have a hot drink as soon as you arrive.
There may also be other non-perishable items like a salt, pepper and a few herbs or spices available.
Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid, washing powder and surface cleaner will be present in the property. One or two toilet rolls will be provided.
The water supply comes from a natural spring and is filtered using UV light to negate the use of chemicals.

Chris greeted us when we arrivd, showed us around and gave us lots of great recommendations for pubs and walks. The place itself was perfect for us - a good kitchen, lovely bathroom and a good dining table for playing board games. The location was peaceful and in a wonderful setting.
Wonderful stay in the very peaceful surroundings of the farm and perfectly located for exploring exmoor and west Somerset. Thank you Chris for making us feel so welcome for such a nice escape.
