The Shippen - Self catering holiday cottage in Nr Peter Tavy, Tavistock, Devon, Dartmoor, England - Sleeps 2+2
The Shippen is one of two holiday cottages set on the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park. It is ideal for couples and can also accommodate parties of four if the sitting room is rearranged with two single beds. The second holiday cottage at the same location, The Barn (see separate advert), can accommodate parties of up to six and when hired together, both cottages can accommodate large groups of eight to ten guests - thus making it ideal for families or friends who want to holiday together whilst having a degree of privacy and personal space.
For reasonable prices, these cottages offer accommodation that is ideal for those who enjoy walking, hiking or horse riding (stabling is available should you wish to bring your own horse/s). Dartmoor is a magical location which provides beautiful countryside and wild rugged scenery - the perfect backdrop for a wide range of outdoor activities. The open moor at Cox Tor is just a ten minute walk up a 'no through' lane and from here you have access to miles of open moorland.
Tavistock (best market town 2004) is just three miles away and provides a good selection of interesting and essential shops, pubs, restaurants, local market, riverside park, leisure centre and theatre. There are many nearby pretty villages surrounding Devon and Eastern Cornwall and a variety of National Trust properties. Peter Tavy is the nearest of villages and has a church and a 15th Century inn serving good food.
