Located in the beautiful North Devon countryside is Shippen Cottage, a lovely three-bedroom barn conversion accommodating up to four. The cottage, which is at Wheel Farm near Combe Martin is the ideal family and dog friendly property with excellent onsite shared leisure facilities, including an indoor heated swimming pool with sauna, a tennis court, a children's play area and a dog walking/exercise field.
The Shippen is slightly tucked away from the other cottages with its own private entrance, and only a short walk from the dog walking field.
On the ground floor of the cottage is a lovely comfy lounge, which has large sofas, a TV with DVD player and a wonderful wood-burning stove. A small step leads from the lounge in to the well-equipped kitchen/diner, which has everything you will need, including an electric oven with hob, a dishwasher, a microwave, a fridge and a country pine table, which seats up to four. If needed there is an onsite laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer.
The three bedrooms are all located on the first floor of the cottage and include a double and two pretty singles. There is also a family bathroom with a shower over the bath, a wash-basin and a WC.
Outside as well as the onsite leisure facilities there are extensive grounds with landscaped gardens and woods for guests to roam; picnic tables are positioned around the grounds for guests to use.
Wheel Farm is situated just a few miles from the North Devon coast and the amazing sandy beaches at Woolacombe Bay and Putsborough. These beaches offer safe bathing and great surfing; Woolacombe was voted best beach in the UK in 2016 and remains one of the favourites amongst guests staying at Wheel Farm. An alternative smaller beach, which is less than two miles away is Combe Martin, where children will love playing in the rock pools, a few water-sports are also on offer here, including sea-kayaking.
