Area From the Cornish, meaning 'Frog Pool', Polyphant is close to the convergence of the River Inny and Penpont Water and is surrounded by miles of stunning countryside. Cornwall is a very temperate region of the UK and the beaches are very popular for surfing and other water-sports. The beaches of the north coast are just 14 miles away and also bring you into close proximity to attractions such as the world-famous Eden Project and the Victorian discovery, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. A few miles west of Polyphant, you can take in the rugged beauty of Bodmin Moor with its granite tors, walking opportunities and secluded moor-land villages. The Camel Route, a famous cycling and walking trail is just minutes from here.
Region Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Very comfortable beds.. Very friendly owners. The shippon was very clean. Lovely part of Cornwall well in reach of all attractions. I would highly recommend the shippon. The owners left us clotted cream and jam tea cakes are on our arrival which was lovely.

Mr Duffy, November 2019
One of the best hire cottages I have had the pleasure of staying in .. . spotlessly clean in amazing grounds and settings.. the perfect get away place I have had the pleasure of staying in ..BRILLIANT
Great base for visiting National Trust properies, the coast, and other intersting attractions.. Owners of the property were helpful and informative.
The washing machine had worn out bearings extremely noisy kitchen implements were very poor mainly plastic.. Knives very blunt potatoes peeler out of the arc had to buy our own.sofas in living area were very tired and need re springing.the access to the property was extremely narrow lane and one had to back up if you met another vehicle.the hot water tank was very noisy just in a cupboard off the bedroom and it would wake you when heating.in general the property badly needs a make over and for £500 a week it doesn't come near what it should be
We loved it so much that we will definitely be going back!
The location of the cottage were beautiful, the garden and scenery of the nearby valleys were the definite highlight.. The garden pond with the fish were spectacular. The hosts were very kind and helpful. The cottage was cosy. A thoroughly enjoyable experience and ideal for young families such as ours.
Great property and great owners
The Shippon is an amazing little cottage, with welcoming owners and a cream tea on arrival.. You don’t have to travel too far to get anywhere, beautiful views and great use of facilities. Highly recommend and I hope to go back one day.
It wasn't a HOLIDAY IT WAS BUSINESS.. It was more than adequate for my needs,nice quiet location, facilities were more than acceptable.
The Cornish cream tea upon arrival was an unexpected and very welcome touch..... well done.
We absolutely loved staying here.. We have 2 young children (under the age of 4) and we found the cottage had everything we needed. It was very cosy and the views were beautiful.
The owners had left lots if Easter treats hidden around the cottage which my toddler absolutely loved!
Will definetly be coming here again to stay some time in the future.
Absolutely loved this cottage, amazing location.. arrived at the cottage with homemade scones which were lovely, the cottage has a very home feel to it. very clean and fresh. will be visiting here again in the future. all facilities you need fridge/ freezer, washing machine/dryer. couldn't fault the shippon :)
Comfortable cottage in a good location for us
The accommodation was as stated, the owners had left us a cream tea very nice! !
Wow! What a fabulous holiday.. The owners were so friendly and a godsend when we had car trouble. Owner even came out and picked me and my 3 children up and gave us a lift back to the cottage. The cottage was very cosy and quaint had everything we needed and more. My eldest 2 loved the pond and outdoor space. Only one.thing I missed was a fan in the bedroom got quite hot up there with my baby other than that perfect accomodation. Thank you both so much.
The Garden, sun room/conservatory and paved sitting out area with panoramic rural views are superb and the large fish pond with it's Koi fish and wildlife really compliments the accommodation.. A great place to relax and perhaps drink a "sundowner" after a day touring. The owners Ulli and Lauraine were very welcoming and catered for our every requirement. The access lane is a single track with passing places but generally devoid of traffics during our stay. As a base for touring it has excellent road communications in all directions. There is a good choice of places to eat nearby
A perfect property, best we have booked.. Facilities, property and location exceeded our expectations and added to a fantastic and much needed relaxing holiday. Thank you to Lorraine and Ulli.
Cream tea, an Easter egg for each of our party and a very friendly and helpful Ulli welcomed us to the Shippon - indeed the nicest welcome we've ever had! The cottage offered all we needed and was perfectly situated for all the trips we had planned: the Cornish Coast and the moors. We hope to return some day.
Excellent cottage and fully equipped. An ideal base for touring Cornwall and ensuring a relaxing holiday. Friendly and helpful owners.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Shippon, the cottage was all we needed and was comfortable. The owners were very friendly but not intrusive, and our children really enjoyed playing in the large garden - the views are beautiful! They also liked seeing the Shetland ponies across the road! It is in a very quiet location but less than ten minutes from Launceston. Worth every penny!
The property was peaceful and the owners were available if necessary and made us welcome but didn't intrude at all. We were impressed by the overall standard of everything in the cottage. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a restful holiday.
The owner of The Shippon were second to none! They went the extra mile with anything we needed.
The cottage was very comfortable and the garden the setting were wonderful.
It is a lovely, nice holiday home situated in a very interesting landscape. The view from the garden is great.
The Shippon completed our holiday, it provided a clean, homely and extremely comfortable start and finish to each day. It was excellently appointed and the view from the gardens was a joy.
