The Shippon – an open plan barn conversion on the 150 acre ancient hill farm of Chittleford. Less than 1 mile from Widecombe. Walking and riding on the doorstep.
Visit Dartmoor and stay with us in ‘The Shippon’ – a charming converted granite barn with spacious accommodation on two floors. A large, oak floored and open plan sitting room and dining area leads to an attractive, modern kitchen on the ground floor. A wood-burning stove with additional modern electric heaters provide warmth. On the first floor there is a large double or twin bedroom with extremely comfy bed(s) and Egyptian cotton sheets together with an en-suite bathroom with a full size bath, shower and WC.
Nestled in the famous village of Widecombe in the Moor on a working, family farm, the Shippon provides a fantastic getaway, with access to some of the best walking, horse riding and other country pursuits on your doorstep. A short stroll down a quiet country lane leads you to Widecombe Village with two pubs, a post office, gift shops and the ‘Cathedral of the Moor’. A short drive will take you to bustling moorland towns with a host of tasty tipples, delicious delicacies, designers and makers, boutique stores, unique gifts and shiny treasures or venture a few more miles and reach the beautiful South Devon coast.
The farm includes a riding centre and riding can be arranged to suit all abilities; either in advance of your stay or on arrival. Well behaved dogs (up to two) are welcome by arrangement at no extra cost.
We very much look forward to welcoming you.
