The Shippen, traditional granite barn in the heart of Treen

Bedrooms 2
Property type barn
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

2 king-size doubles, 1 en-suite, 1 bathroom including spa bath

Formerly a cowshed on what is still a working organic dairy farm The Shippen has been tastefully renovated to provide very comfortable accommodation in the heart of Treen.

High ceilings, exposed beams and wall ties help retain the barn's character. Whilst slate floors with under-floor heating as well as full oil-fired central heating add a modern touch.

The latest addition of a morso multifuel stove, with all fuel included, will ensure a cosy atmosphere.

Accommodation includes 2 double bedrooms (with king-size beds), 1 with en-suite shower room and digital TV, and 1 with bathroom adjacent incorporating a spa bath.

The Shippen has a sofa bed in the lounge and so can accommodate 1-2 more people; alternatively a temporary bed can be used in the larger bedroom.

The light and airy family space includes a fully fitted kitchen with washer/drier, fridge-freezer, microwave etc.

For those ‘not so sunny’ days there is a 30' fully digital TV with video/DVD player, several videos, DVDs, games etc.

Outside is a private and secure 'suntrap' terrace with seating, outside dining and a barbecue.

All towels and bed-linen are included (except beach towels) as is electricity, oil and stove fuel.

There is off road parking for 2 cars.

Chicken / cow friendly dogs are welcomed.

Please note that adult supervision of children is required on the farm at all times. You are welcome to come and watch the milking and help to pick up the eggs! - fresh pasteurised organic milk and eggs are available from the farm daily.

There is good disabled access as there are no steps into or stairs inside the property.

Out of season short breaks available.

Lovely location and well equipped cottage with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Well looked after property and the owner was lovely and always on hand if we needed anything. Great location for walking and a lovely pub in the village. Surrounded by the cows and chickens on working farm and lots of attention from gorgeous working dog. Basically we absolutely loved this place.

Excellent accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in The Shippen with our 3 grown-up children and we all loved the property and the location. Very comfortable, immaculately clean, very well equipped and Paula was very welcoming. Fresh produce readily available. Lots to see within easy reach, Lands End, Minack Theatre, St Ives, great beaches and cliff walks. Excellent food at nearby pub. We shall definitely be arranging another holiday!

Warm welcome from owners, lovely location, beautiful walks.

Kids loved watching cows being milked and later drinking the milk.

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Shippen is absolutely perfect. Paula and Chris have provided everything you could possibly want to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Beautiful location, fresh eggs every day, loved the bathrooms with underfloor heating and the log burner which kept it cosy. Loved waking up to see the chickens and cows. Having The Logan Rock pub on your doorstep is a bonus with friendly staff and amazing food. Highly recommend both! Hope we get to return to The Shippen sometime.

I have visited the area and stayed for the past 8yrs but this is my first stay at this lovely cottage. This is by far the best cottage I have stayed in. It is clean, decorated and finished to a high standard. I was made to feel o welcome and would highly recommend to anyone. I will be looking to book again next year!
