we had an all-too short stay in this wonderful place and will return whenever we are able. Many, many thanks to Sarah for hospitality and help. Altogether 3 generations of our family stayed at the Old Shippon on 2 occasions and all of us were very happy there.

special note: we would truly recommend this vacation rental as a very clean, bright spacious place to stay if you are coming from Canada or US as it is very easy to access and very user-friendly whilst being in authentic classic rural English location close to many attractions and much history.

“Peach of a find”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We happened across Sambrook Manor online when we were looking to get away for a long weekend with the kids and with some friends. We booked in to 'The Old Shippon' which is a double cottage at Sambrook Manor, set up for two families. It is well equipped, finished to a very high standard and with a cracking view overlooking the fields of the owners' working farm. Cannot speak highly enough of the place and crucially the owners Sarah and Andrew who were absolutely lovely and more than happy to help. They even gave the children the opportunity to feed and, much to their delight, name one of the little lambs ("Nibbles").
There are walks into the countryside right from the doorstep, and lovely market towns and pubs with beer gardens nearby. A peach of a find, we will definitely be returning.
