  • “We had a lovely week at The Shippen in Tavistock.”

    Marvellous place to stay, peaceful and quiet yet minutes away from the town. Extremely well appointed with lots of attention to detail over the comfort and needs of guests (helpful/useful/thoughtful little touches too often overlooked elsewhere). A real credit to the owners who really do deserve a big thank you. We would be delighted to rebook again - simply great! ...

    Marvellous place to stay, peaceful and quiet yet minutes away from the town. Extremely well appointed with lots of attention to detail over the comfort and needs of guests (helpful/useful/thoughtful little touches too often overlooked elsewhere). A real credit to the owners who really do deserve a big thank you. We would be delighted to rebook again - simply great! Sykes are an excellent company through whom we booked and their service was exemplary throughout the process. Having booked with Sykes several times over the years, we well know they are a first class company. So 10/10 from us

The property

Within the Dartmoor National Park, 2 miles from Tavistock and sheltering privately in wooded farmland, is Grenofen Manor.

The Shippen is a semi-detached ‘upside down’ cottage converted from an old milking parlour, one of many handsome barns and stables which served the manor house.

It has pretty views of well-kept flower-filled grounds and long views to the moor, and its own little secluded garden (table/chairs, barbecue) for sunbathing/snoozing (not ball games).

Lots of footpaths around.

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, freezer, fridge, electric range-style cooker) with smart TV/DVD/Blu-ray/PVR, iPad with iTunes (Bluetooth speaker) and stable doors to little conservatory (cane chairs) leading to garden.

Downstairs (stairgate), two bedrooms - a double, and a twin (hooks for clothes-hanging); shower-room (suite).

Tumble drier and secure bicycle storage in part of garage opposite.

A lovely quiet place. Tavistock: fine ancient town on the River Tavy on the edge of Dartmoor, evolving around an abbey founded in 974, and Sir Francis Drake’s home town.

Lots of interesting shops, pannier/farmers’ markets, pubs, restaurants, wharfside theatre (also films/live music), leisure centre.

Golf, 1½ miles; horse riding and cycling routes within a few miles.
