About this Property

The Shippen, a spacious, detached and charming conversion is one of  two cottages at Locks Farm, close to the coast in the village of East Prawle, South Devon. Both are charming, spotless and extremely comfortable, a positive oasis from which to explore this stunning area. Both cottages and the farmhouse are within an attractive gated courtyard area, the original former farmyard, with gardens and parking.

Once a working farm, but now a small tranquil group of properties tucked in a sheltered spot in the heart of East Prawle village, the most southerly point of Devon. The village enjoys a green, has a shop, the Piglet Stores, a pub, The Pig's Nose and the Piglet Cafe and is a mile from the sea in the middle of unspoilt farmland with cliffs, coves and beaches waiting to be explored. The coastal path offers superb scenery, breathtaking walks and bird watching with longer walks along the National Trust Neptune Path to Start Point or Salcombe and beyond.

The Shippen provides comfortable and roomy accommodation for two people or a small family of four. It is also suitable for the accompanied disabled.
