Big Holiday House near Totnes Ideal for Family Celebrations

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Shippon, Totnes, South Devon, sleeps 18 in 10 bedrooms.

The Shippon is a detached converted barn with fabulous views down to and over a completely unspoilt, building-free stretch of the navigable river Dart.

This is a fabulous place to bring your children and their friends or your friends and their children! With lots of space inside and out, the Shippon is a family friendly property where everyone can relax.

There are some good walks right from the door, especially into Totnes (40 minutes mostly on a good tarmac cycle track), where you will find an eclectic market town, packed with cafes, boutiques and great places for lunch. Along the route there are plenty of breathtaking views and lots of wildlife.

We're also lucky to have Sharpham Vineyard and award winning cheese makers just 20 minutes walk in the other direction, great for a wine & cheese tasting session by the river.

2016 has seen a number of improvements to the house including added flexibility with guests being able to choose whether to have a twin bedded layout or a kingsized bed in room 1. Plus the addition of a double with a extra single bed in room 6, which we hope gives you even more choice and enables you to sleep up to 19 in beds.

Inside the Shippon the majority of the heating is provided by economical electric infra red heaters with convector heaters in 3 bedrooms. There is always plenty of hot water from 5 immersion tanks. A wood burner in the sitting room gives added warmth and cosiness in the winter.

You approach the property down about a half mile private tarmac drive (please go slowly over the speed bumps), there is parking space for approximately 8 cars once you reach the Shippon.

Please note electricity is no longer included in the price, we ask you to pay for what you use at the end of the stay, based on the meter readings. We provide logs for a fire on your first evening (in winter), after that there are plenty for sale locally.

The hot tubs are a new addition for 2017. They are positioned in front of the house, taking advantage of the lovely views. A great way to enjoy a sundowner whether there's snow on the ground or its 25 degrees!

Facilities

Well equipped kitchen with two built in electric fan ovens and gas hobs, dishwasher, microwave, larder fridge, chest freezer, plus much more.
There are 2 beech dining tables (both 8' x 4') usually put together to form a square and seat 18/20 but can be separated to seat 12 on each.
Large sitting room on first floor is really comfortable and has lovely views to the river and valley. There are 7 sofas so everyone can sit together.
There is a 48" flat screen TV with DVD player. And a full Sky package is provided.
BT phone line and Wi-Fi.
Spacious games room with table tennis and small pool table on the first floor. There is also a small colour television.
Infrared electric heaters & convector heaters throughout, 5 immersion heaters for hot water. There is a wood burner in the lounge, please bring logs.
A total of 19 can sleep in 10 bedrooms (4 doubles, 4 twins, 1 family room and 2 singles).
Beautiful 100% cotton linen is provided & there are duvets (down or fibre) throughout. Towels are also included from Jan 2017 for all new bookings.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom. There are 8 en suite bathrooms, one private shower room and one private wet room. Baths mats are supplied.
Please call to discuss, parts of the Shippon are wheelchair friendly and there is a wet room on the ground floor.
Spacious games room with table tennis and small pool table on the first floor. There is also a small flat screen colour television.
Exclusively for your property is a hard tennis court and a children's play area: big trampoline, slide and swings. There are also two hot tubs.

Location

Ideally situated close to the River Dart with good access to both South Devon coast and Dartmoor: both half an hours drive. Close to the lovely town of Totnes & Sharpham Vineyard & Cheese Dairy.
Totnes (40 mins walk, 2.5 miles by car).
Totnes with a variety of small, independently run shops - especially good local food suppliers and small boutiques.
Durant Arms, Ashprington. This is now a great village pub for food and drinks, especially as you can walk there along the River from the Shippon. If its a nice day we suggest the Malsters Arms nearby.
