The Shippon is the ground floor apartment in The Old Stable and sleeps 3 adults (or 2 adults and 2 children). We do not accept children under the age of 10 years.
The front door is accessed over cobbles and there are two steps up to the door. The door opens into the main living area of the apartment. To the right is the kitchen, which is well equipped and offers a four ring electric hob, electric oven, fridge and dishwasher, microwave oven and plenty of kitchen cupboards. You will find a supply of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar and milk in the fridge on your arrival. There are also essential herbs, spices and oil.
There is a sofa bed in the sitting area (which can be used for one adult or two children), TV with freeview, DVD player and a dining table, which will seat four.
Leading off to the right of the main living area is a separate double bedroom, with double bed. A hairdryer is provided.
To the left of the main area is a shower room, separate toilet and utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer. Soap and shower wash are provided for your arrival.
The apartment is centrally heated during the chillier months and bed linen and towels are included. Purple towels are provided for use in the spa. Please do not take the cream towels into the spa, these are for use in the apartment only.
Outside the front door is a shared garden for both apartments to enjoy, although The Hayloft does have its own first floor patio area. We are currently demolishing an old greenhouse next to the Old Stable and are building a spa with a cedar hot tub and sauna. This will, hopefully be fully operational by Spring 2016.
No pets in this apartment.
Dustbin and recycling boxes can be found by the garden gate into the owners' back garden.
There is internal access to the apartment above, so both apartments can be let together. Both apartments can lock access to the other apartment. There is a cupboard at the top of the stairs where you can access ironing and cleaning facilities should you need them.
Parking adjacent to the Old Stable.
Please note that the apartments are on the ground and first floor of The Old Stable and loud sound can travel (especially the TV) , so please respect the guests in the other apartment and keep sound levels low after 10.30pm. The property is in a peaceful, rural countryside location and it is this very peace that our guests enjoy.
