Welcome to The Old Shippon at Dunsdon Farm

Welcome to The Old Shippon at Dunsdon Farm, an historic 54 acre dog friendly farm, situated in picturesque countryside adjoining the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve, and with easy reach of the North Cornwall Coast.

The Old Shippon is a beautifully restored stone barn, set within a historic farm courtyard setting, (with its own private entrance and garden). Restored in 2011 to a very high standard the cottage features solid oak staircase, doors and skirting and has been decorated with a contemporary feel, yet still retaining the charm of its historic agricultural past.

The Old Shippon boasts three good-sized bedrooms, sleeping six people, and a reverse layout with bright open-plan living space, all under-floor heated.
