  • "Excellent property."

    Spacious and comfortable. Great for families AND pet friendly. There were only 2 items of note (NOT negatives): 1. There were no handles on the bath, preventing my elderly relative from using it. 2. The "roads" to reach the property from the main road were a nightmare! Despite this, it is still a 5 Star experience. We loved it, and would go back again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you had a good stay with us . Property Owner

  • "Great position close to the coast."

    Friendly owners wholesale have run the holiday accommodation for many years. Water pressure is very low so the shower was more of a dribble. Other than that we were very happy with the property android will probably return in the future.

  • "Comfy and interesting property, with pleasant rural view to the front."

    Owners are very friendly and helpful. Great location within a few minutes drive to wonderful walks along the coastal path from Duckpool. A tumble drier would have been useful for the rainy weather! Hope to be back again soon.

  • "Firstly, thank you for letting us stay, the farm is in a lovely location and was just what we needed."

    The kitchen was incredibly well stocked and the overall cost was great value. A few minor improvements such as new mattresses throughout (so you can't feel the springs) and an electric water pump (so that the showers are more than a drip) and the property would be unbeatable.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The mattresses were new in August and of course can be of a personal preference. The showers are gravity fed, so if you do have an electric shower, it will feel somewhat different. We do hope we will be welcoming you back to The shippon . Property Owner

  • "The Shippon is part of a group of barns converted into holiday accommodation on a working farm so in the winter expect farmyard smells!"

    It has a large open plan ground floor with a well equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the showers a decent size. Parking is immediately in front of the accommodation which has a dual aspect overlooking open fields to the front and a courtyard with shrubs, seating and washing lines to the rear. It’s quiet and peaceful yet only a few miles from Bude. It is accessed via typical Cornish lanes; single track road for about 2.5 miles with steep banks, high hedges and limited passing places but once you reach the farm you have open views over the countryside. Very pleasant stay and the farmer was friendly and welcoming.

  • "We loved the accommodation but the roads to and from are more like tracks with only one car at a time and reversing very difficult if you do meet another vehicle."

    No lights which made us apprehensive of going out at night. We knew it was on a farm which wouldn't be on a main route but this was More off the the beaten track and took along and winding road to get onto a main road. We feel this should be advised in the accommodation information.

  • "Beautiful countryside location with plenty of garden space to enjoy."

    The friendly owners were always on hand for any help if required. Very spacious and comfortable accommodation in ideal location for visiting Bude and other beauty spots.

  • "Lovely bedroom and bathrooms."

    Fresh white bedding. Lovely and clean. However only one bath towel and hand towel per person per week. Luckily we had taken spares. Friendly welcome from the owner. TV in the lounge was probably past it’s best. Sound was fuzzy. But these are just minor issues . We enjoyed our stay and would return. Many thx

  • "The Shipping was fantastic in a rural location, working farm."

    Just a couple of minor tweaks could make this place superb. The matresses are tired and need upgrading. This is really important for a restful family holiday. All the beds had springs that could be felt quite prominently. Hot water was an issue and the water pressure was extremely low. Needed an outside hose to clean down wetsuits as in a coastal surfing location . We still had a great time and the farm was great, Jonathan the farmer was very friendly and visited several times. Walking in the area is beautiful. But it needs a few changes to make it superb. We would come back for sure.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are sorry you felt the mattresses were not up to standard, we haven't received comments about this previously. We will definitely look at these and if anything needs upgrading it will be done. With regard to the water pressure, it is possible that this was caused by high demand at peak times, again, this hasn't been mentioned before. There is an area near the play park to hang wetsuits and a hose to wash them off, apologies for not mentioning this to you while you were here. We're really pleased to hear that you had a great time and enjoyed the area, and look forward to welcoming you at The Shippon in the future. Property Owner

About the location


Bude 4 miles.

Kilkhampton is an historic Cornish village, 4 miles from the popular Victorian seaside resort of Bude, one of Cornwall’s premier holiday locations. With its old church, village shops and atmospheric village pubs, Kilkhampton is a lovely place to relax after a hard day exploring the stunning beaches and spectacular coastal scenery for which the area is famous. Bude’s beaches attract surfers from all over the country and when conditions are right you’d be hard pushed to find better surf. When the tide is out, miles of golden sand and hundreds of rock pools keep visitors occupied for hours. The South West Coast Path, and many other rights-of-way winding over the clifftops and through lush green fields looking out over the sea, make this area a haven for walkers and lovers of the open countryside. For those who prefer staying closer to home, a good shopping centre and a selection of pubs, two clubs and restaurants are on offer. Bude canal, a registered nature reserve, passes through the town, and rowing a boat along its calm waters or walking the towpath among the beautiful (and friendly) water fowl that live among the reeds is a great way to spend an hour or two. Within the area there are also 2 golf courses, an indoor swimming pool, bowling alley at the leisure centre. A perfect location for all that North Cornwall has to offer.
