The Old Shippon at Dunsdon Farm, a beautifully restored stone barn situated in picturesque Ruby Country countryside.
Dunsdon Farm is a 54 acre farm set in open Ruby Country countryside with easy access to the coast, and adjoining the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve, which is designated as a SSSI, as a rare and protected culm grassland area. The Old Shippon is within a historic farm courtyard setting, (but benefiting from its own private entrance and garden) with some of the buildings dating from the Medieval period. The land has been farmed for many hundreds (possibly thousands) of years, and is recorded in the Doomsday Book.
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 3 good-sized bedrooms, sleeping up to 6 people and a reverse layout with bright open-plan living space, all under-floor heated.
