"We had a wonderful, relaxing stay! The view was stunning and we loved sitting by the log fire reading books and generally unwinding. Just what we needed. Plus we still found plenty of time to visit Shrewsbury, Bishops Castle and Church Stretton (via the Long Mynd - one of the most scenic/unusual drives we've done, and that's having driven thousands of miles across America this past year!)." ~ Will and Clare, February 2017
"This GORGEOUS place was the perfect country getaway. We were so shocked at the views - it has been designed perfectly. We will definitely be back again next year!!" ~ Georgina, February 2017
"Hidden paradise! We had a wonderful, amazing, relaxing stay at the Shippen. The view is breathtaking, the walks around the place incredible. We wish we had stayed longer! It felt like a real luxury retreat and we will certainly be back!!" ~ Pauline and Chuma, January 2017
"The Shippen is the perfect getaway and comes highly recommended having just spent 4 nights over the Christmas period recharging in front of the cosy log fire. The property is beautifully presented - the photos do not do it justice! It comes fully equipped with modern gadgets and home comforts - everything you could want really... We were very sad to leave but would love to come back again soon." ~ Stephanie, December 2016
A hidden gem in the heart of the Shropshire Hills
Set amidst the stunning Linley Valley, steeped in peace and tranquillity, and available to hire all year round, The Shippen is paradise for those seeking refuge from the busyness of day-to-day life and a perfect base from which to explore the local market towns, castles, gastronomy and natural beauty of this un-spoilt region.
The thriving medieval market town of Ludlow is an architectural gem with a lively community feel, busy with events and festivals throughout the year. The historic town centre is situated above the River Teme and is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of south Shropshire and the Welsh Marches.
