Well appointed barn in pleasant surroundings
We are a family of six, ranging in age from 6 - 66 and all loved this barn.
We were impressed with how well equipped the accommodation was and couldn’t find anything lacking.
It was comfortable throughout but the two smaller bedrooms were very warm at night as we were lucky enough to be there during a very warm spell.
The owners responded swiftly to queries both before and during our stay.
We would not hesitate to recommend this property and would love to return ourselves one day.
Fantastic weekend retreat!!
A hidden gem in deepest Dorset! A wonderfully spacious, comfortable, well equipped barn conversion that didn't disappoint. The pictures accurately depict this lovely setting & provided the perfect stay for the Easter bank holiday for me & my family. Everything was catered for by the accommodating owners. Spotlessly clean & modern, from the thoughtful welcome basket to all the numerous games, books & dvds provided for entertainment. A lovely quiet location, although a car is a must, but definitely will be hoping to return to revisit this beautiful barn.
Dear Kate, Thank you so much for your review of The Shippens. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay, we hope to welcome you back in the future.
Ian and Alison
We enjoyed our time at the Shippens and found it quite convenient for our visits around Dorset and Somerset.
The place was well equipped and apart from some used towels behind a bedroom door it was scrupulously clean.
We would highly recommend to future visitors.
The property was spacious, had everything you could need and was immaculate.
Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely part of the world.
A fabulous destination, forms lovely base
Our family of 3 adults and 3 teens had less than a week and we could have stayed much longer. The accommodation was very well equipped and any comments we made were quickly acknowledged with a promise to be rectified; everything was professionally handled. We loved the area, beautiful walks, village fetes, Sherborne a gem. Thank you for a holiday to remember.
The Shippens is a beautifully presented property in a lovely village/hamlet close to Yeovil. The property was clean, well equipped and very welcoming. I particularly loved the basket of biscuits/crisps and chilled bottle of wine waiting for us. The beds were very comfortable too. I highly recommend this property and look forward to returning in the future.
