Short Breaks

We understand that you don’t always want, or can’t always find time for a full week’s holiday, so we make The Old Shippon at Dunsdon Farm available for luxury short breaks in Devon all year round.

In addition to week stays we are also able to offer weekend breaks (Friday to Monday) and mid week breaks (Monday to Friday). These are charged at 75% of the cost of a full week.
