Super-sleek and contemporary, The Shippon Cottage is ideal for a couple who appreciate minimalistic, stylish design along with luxurious details including a bathroom with a two-person bath and TV.
The Shippon Cottage is a one-bedroom cottage that offers simplistic, modern luxury – a far cry from its origins as the original workshop beneath the main barn, but the original oak ceiling beams serve as reminder of the building’s history. As part of a beautiful, five-star cottage complex (there are just four other boutique-style properties here) with three acres of tranquil gardens and an arboretum, it offers an idyllic setting for enjoying nature and boasts an on-site spa and swimming pool available for your exclusive use, for that opulent ‘cherry on the cake’.

Why we love this

  • Rural, peaceful Lake District location
  • One of just five boutique-style properties on a luxury cottage complex
  • Spa and swimming pool access and a personal chef available

Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

The cottage offers a calm retreat for two. Almost every wall, floor and surface is coloured white, or a shade of off-white, whilst strategically placed pieces of artwork offer interesting focal points.

The kitchen/dining area is open-plan and features an island work area for prepping, appliances including a double oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, plus pots and pans. There is also a dining table and chairs for two.

From the dining area, there are a few steps up to a mezzanine level where you’ll find the lounge which has a contemporary gas fire and a Smart TV with Freeview and Netflix built-in. The cottage also features music control pads and Bluetooth technology so that you can play songs from your own collection, or stream music.

Your outdoor space is accessed via the French doors that lead to a patio with table and chairs, as well as a BBQ.

The bedroom has a super-king-size bed, a Smart TV and an en-suite bathroom that is very luxurious with not only a shower, but also a two-person bath and even a TV so that you can watch a movie whilst you take a long soak.

There is also space in the bedroom for a travel cot which makes the cottage a good option if you have a baby to bring along.

For nature-lovers, there’s a ‘nature spotter diary’ for noting sightings of wildlife, with a selection of bird and nature guides to-hand to help you identify species. On a clear evening, we recommend requesting some stargazing equipment to be dropped off at the cottage, wrapping up warm and seeing what magical things you can spot in the night sky.

If you arrive before 7pm you will be met by a member of staff who will show you to your cottage and how everything works. For later arrivals, there is self-check-in, but a member of staff will welcome you the following morning. The cottage also has a dedicated parking area.

The complex on which The Shippon Cottage is situated is committed to minimising its environmental impact and caring for the surrounding countryside. It has a private water supply, while renewable biomass and solar power is generated on site. Recycling facilities include guest composting bins for food waste, while bark chippings are created in the grounds and used in the garden borders. There’s also a tree-planting programme, whilst nature is encouraged to thrive through measures like adding plants and wildflowers that attract pollinators including bees and butterflies. Meanwhile, eco-friendly cleaning products are used where possible and items included in welcome hampers are sourced locally.

If you'd like to offset the carbon emissions from your trip get in touch and we can arrange this for a small fee.

Location of 'The Shippon Cottage


The neighbourhood

The Shippon Cottage is set in a quiet corner of the Lake District, on a small, luxury cottage complex with an on-site gym and a spa area with Jacuzzi, sauna and a heated 16-metre swimming pool. The pool and spa facilities are made available to one cottage at a time, so that you can experience having them all to yourself for the ultimate pampering treat (you will be asked to pre-book time slots). For an extra cost, spa treatments including aromatherapy and sports massages can be booked.

There are also three acres of gardens and an arboretum for nature-lovers to explore. Birdwatchers in particular will enjoy looking for the many garden species, as well as trying to spot woodpeckers and owls. The pond attracts frogs, newts and ducks, while bats are frequently seen, and on occasion so are wild deer.
