Mrs Sheath, May 2019
The Shippen is a real secret little hideaway, which suited me, my husband and our dog down to the ground.. We love this area of the Lake District, and this made our perfect base. Walking made a big part of our holiday, and we were able to find some beautiful walks straight from the door. Crosslands is very quiet and peaceful, with only birdsong to be heard early morning and evening, yet Ulverston is only twenty minutes' drive away; and Greenodd (only ten minutes away) has an axcellent baker, butcher and general store. The cottage owners, who live adjacent to the Shippen, are a delightful couple, who made us most welcome and we were made to feel that, genuinely, nothing was too much trouble to make our holiday enjoyable. We hope very much to return.
