Beautiful accommodation, very contemporary and stylish, loved the quiet, views to die for, went on some lovely walks with the dogs, bit out of the way of amenities but we relished the solitude coming from the busy city. The owners left us to our own devices which was great for us we loved the privacy.
We had a lovely holiday. Complete quiet. Stunning views. Brilliant property. Beautifully designed for comfort.
I booked The Shippen at the start of the year as I wanted to have a break somewhere quiet and beautiful. As it happened, I ended up househunting in Shropshire so it served double the purpose!
The location of The Shippen is quite simply stunning and the dog and I had some fabulous walks without having to get in the car; just walk in any direction for spectacular scenery. The accommodation was perfect - warm, comfortable and equipped with everything one needs. Yes, even doggy treats for my labrador!
Jeannie and Paul (plus the delightful lady who comes to do the cleaning) are so welcoming and generously share their obvious love of the place and the surrounding area. A huge thank you to them as it made my time there even more special.
And I found a house and will be back in lovely Shropshire for good thus making The Shippen even more memorable!

We have just spent a wonderful 3 nights at The Shippen, Linley valley.
The perfect getaway - it's a haven of delightful touches that thrilled us in every aspect. The wonderful window over the valley (and that view), the three sofas to sit in (different light in each), the stunning lights (can create many different moods), the sound system - although tough to beat the lambs and the nearby stream nature noises, the walk in wet room and the kitchen with everything you could think of in it.
The barn is wonderfully situated on the Shropshire Way and very close to Stiperstones National Nature Reserve. Lovely pubs nearby - The Bridges at Ratlingthorpe and The Castle Hotel in Bishop's Castle.
We had a super super time, a complete switch off from normal life and would highly recommend this haven to anyone!
We had a well needed break in this beautiful little barn conversion. We'd never been to Shropshire before and the Linley valley (in which The Shippen sits) is unspoilt and stunning.
Jeannie was a perfect host, on hand for queries and very helpful. The barn is kitted out with a proper kitchen, log burner, TV (with netflix!) and a map of the local area. We went for a walk just out the back door which was excellent and there are quite a few local pubs which are good too.
Would definitely love to go back.
