Just a few words about us :
We are the owners of The Shippon having purchased our family home in 2014 along with the outbuilding known now as The Shippon little did we know that it would change both our careers and lifestyle. Being a local girl having lived in the Ribble Valley for all my life I love the outdoors and also the vast amount of beautiful countryside that surrounds us.
Initially our intentions to let it out as residential but both of us wanted to have a change in direction I was a Sales Manager for an estate agent and Nick owned a shop fitting company working long hours . So holiday let was something that would allow us to work from home and also do something completely different , plus we live in the Ribble Valley and also very close to the Forest of Bowland an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which we wanted to share with other people.
Setting too in 2016 the renovation started on the outbuilding after getting planning permission passed, 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. Our first guests arrived in July 2017 and since then we have been very busy looking after our holiday let.
So come and enjoy the experience of staying in The Shippon and we look forward to welcoming you to our lovely property.
Hayley and Nick Sugden
