Holiday Rental House
Self-catering in Devon for up to 4 people in a picturesque, converted granite barn. The Shippon is located on the northern edge of Devon's Dartmoor National Park, just outside the market town of Okehampton. Convenient access to A30 but far enough away not to be troubled by road noise inside the cottage. Many of our guests have commented how quiet and peaceful it is here, and they love the fact there is no 'light pollution' from street lights. Children are welcome but we don't consider the single bedroom with the shower as suitable for young children Here is what guests have said about their stay with us: 'The Shippon is a a great find.

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay, Julie. Like you, many guests have left the car here and crossed the road to walk on the moor. As you brought your bikes, you had the advantage of the great Dartmoor scenery along the Granite Way, ending...More

About the neighbourhood
The Shippon is on the northern edge of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park. If you enjoy walking or cycling, there are miles of pathways on the moor for you to explore. Okehampton is the nearest town, about 3 miles away. Here you'll find shops, pubs and restaurants. The moorland village of Belstone is 1 mile away. It has a good pub that serves food, as well as a cute tea room that serves cream teas (not open every day). Directly opposite the entrance to The Shippon is a footpath and bridle path that leads to Belstone, or to the village of Sticklepath, taking you through the picturesque Skaigh Valley.
How to get there
We're easy to find when you leave the A30 at the Okehampton exit and when you get here there's safe parking right outside The Shippon.
