We were delighted and surprised to discover that Adventure Girl, AKA Shanna F. Jones, has reviewed a stay in The Shippen... and it's wonderful!
"Sit on the veranda at the Shippen with a cup of tea or a glass of English Pimm’s and be engulfed in the seasons in their rawest form. Full bloom in Spring, summer haze, autumn green and gold fire or winter white snow blanket. No wonder this corner of Shropshire inspired JRR Tolkien."

"The bed, clad in pristine white cotton and stylish woollen pillows, is set at the front of the open-plan room next to the floor-to-ceiling windows. Sitting in bed with a cup of tea the following morning, the only thing between me and abundant nature was the private wooden veranda overlooking the flower garden, woods and fields."
"History fanatics, story lovers and geologists will be in their element visiting south Shropshire. Once home to Charles Darwin and A. E. Housman, seek and you will find ancient volcanos, fossils with evidence of the first signs of life on earth and bewitching folklore tales."
