Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Great place to visit for Birdwatchers/walkers etc. Superb pub nearby. Sept 2012.
  2. We had a comfortable and peaceful holiday. The Shippen was clean and tidy. A posh, yet relaxing accommodation where our dogs felt at home and not penned in. East Prawle was quiet with an old fashion pub, which to my surprise even had a menu for dogs. Other pubs in surrounding villages all had tables for dogs, which I’d never seen before. July 2011.
  3. The property was warm and comfortable. The large living room was lovely. The situation of the cottage in a village with an excellent pub and from which there are lovely walks was a big asset. Feb 2011.
  4. Very comfortable accomodation, a well equiped kitchen, and plenty of books, dvd’s and games available for evenings in. Oct 2010.
  5. This is the seventh or eighth year we have been at the Shippen and it has everything you need whatever the weather and also situated to do as much or as little as you want. Aug 2010.
  6. Everything you needed was in the cottage, even books and games. Aug 2010.
  7. Plenty of space and two separate sitting areas - good for family with four children. Aug 2010.
  8. We were able to bring 3 dogs. The front garden was completely secure. Our family enjoyed the quirkiness of East Prawle! July 2010.
  9. The enclosed garden was perfect for the dogs. May 2010.
  10. The interior of the hosue was roomy, pleasantly presented and well equipped. It has a central position in the village near to local store and public house. Feb 2010.
  11. Parking difficult but what a wonderful area. June 2009.
  12. Lovely barn set in a very quaint village. Great pub and shop. July 2009.
  13. The property was spacious and allowed us to take our dogs. July 2009.
  14. The Shippen gave us a great base for walking straight from the front door, catching the ferry to Salcombe, and driving further afield. Even though it was just a short break, we really felt we were ’coming home’ at the end of each day. Furnishings, facilities and decor were just right. The whole party felt at home and comfortable right from the start. July 2009.
  15. Very quaint and spacious and well equipped. Good garden for children to run around. July 2009.
  16. Property better than it looks on your website. April 2008.
  17. As soon as we walked through the door of the cottage we felt "at home". Fantastic traditional pub just a few yards away. Dec 2008.
  18. Great location, well equipped cottage. May 2008.
  19. Situated in a friendly village and is a great base for walks to various beaches. May 2008.
  20. Good starting point for coastal walks. Popular village pub. Sept 2008.
