Once upon a time an empty cattle building stood untouched for many years deteriorating away until 2014 where the story begins:
Having purchased our family home in 2014 along with the outbuilding now known as The Shippon little did we know that it would change both our careers and lifestyle.
Working long hours as a Sales Manager in Estate Agency with two teenage children and Nick running his own Shop Fitting company, something had to change. One month before Christmas I gave my resignation in and started to research Hospitality.
A couple of years down the line 2016 the renovation started on the outbuilding, a local builder having done the major building works handed over and Nick, then started on doing the internal finishes, finally completing it in June 2017.
We had bespoke furniture individually made for the bedrooms and sourced quirky pieces we hoped our guests would love.
Slowly The Shippon Luxury Holiday Let started to take shape sympathetically restoring and keeping its individuality while giving it that much needed 21st century update.
Our guests are now able to enjoy the modern luxury comforts whilst it is like a home from home, an inviting cottage welcoming guests from all over the world.
Guests love to go walking , cycling or sightseeing for the day and then come back and relax in the hot tub with a glass of fizz whilst stargazing in the evening or enjoying the far reaching views .
There is a modern log burner in the cottage where guests can cosy up with a glass of wine and enjoy the warmth and crackling of the fire perfect for those winter cold nights.
Should you wish to venture out for the evening then half a mile down the road is a delightful restaurant and pub that can be enjoyed which has roaring fires in the winter and a delightful beer garden in the summer.
We guarantee if you wish to have a relaxing romantic weekend or a weekend filled with adventure and activities then The Shippon Luxury Holiday Let is a perfect place to stay.
We look forward to welcoming you to stay at our beautiful cottage.
Here’s to the future! The story doesn’t end here.
Hayley and Nick.
