We all had a great time as we did two years ago, the property, the location, we found it easier to return to a previous property with nowing what to expect and the great layout gives us a relaxed Holiday.

Very enjoyable stay, excellent quiet location in a comfortable well equipped house for visiting local attractions. Very good selection of dvds, jigsaws and games, with the games room being a big bonus on wet days. Also appreciated the welcome pack and extra items like salt and pepper, provided. Thank you.


August 2018

We did enjoy our stay & the house is beautifully styled. The games were a great bonus & very popular.


July 2018

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Shippen but there were a some items I feel need mentioning. The Hob and oven had been replaced but the instruction book wasn’t in the home information pack, I did later find it at the bottom of the local attraction box, the oven instruction book never turned up. The cottage was very clean but the sofa had many marks and stains you should consider having it cleaned.

Thanks so much for your feedback, we'll ensure that the instruction booklets are easier to find, and your comments have been passed on to the housekeeper. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay, from the Toad Hall Team

This was the best cottage we have stayed in. the kitchen in particular was especially good, we found all the equipment we could need and more for cooking. The quality of the equipment was very high as well especially the hob and oven. We also appreciated the large and diverse selection of books available. The information provided for local amenities was very good too.

We were really pleased with our stay at The Shippen, the standards were week above the norm for a holiday let. They certainly went above and beyond. The quality of the house was fantastic. Things that can make or break your stay - good mattresses, good blinds/curtains for lie-ins!! The garage was a great feature for a beach based family like ours. The children also loved the games room! I would be disappointed if you were booked for next year on my dates. Saving up now!!

Lovely cottage in a good location. Hoping to book again with you next year

What a lovely house just like home from home. The scones cream and jam were a lovely welcome.We have all had a great time and plan to visit again next year to see the places we haven't managed to get to this year. Many thanks from the Coates and Spencer families.

The Shippen at Aveton Gifford is a wonderful property and more spacious than the impression given on the website. It is extremely well appointed and tastefully styled with very good quality facilities. The little touches such as fresh flowers along with scones, jam and clotted cream in a welcome basket were particularly appreciated. We really wanted for nothing during our stay, as everything we could wish for was provided, from an ice cream scoop to a wind break for the beach. We took advantage of the superb array of well chosen books, DVD's and games provided and enjoyed completing two of the jigsaws on a particularly rainy day. There was something for everyone. My family and I loved it here and were very sad to leave. We are already considering a return visit and would not bother looking for another property as this fitted the bill in every aspect for us.
