About the property


A beautiful, recently constructed cottage which provides quality, peaceful accommodation for couples. Set in 6 acres of farmland with rural and sea views and lots of wonderful walks from the door. The South West Coastal footpath is close to the cottage with Ilfracombe in one direction and Croyde in the other. The Long Linhay is a 5 minute walk to the village of Mortehoe with its pubs and restuarants, beautiful church and small museum. Woolacombe Beach is a 10 minute drive and other beaches such as Rockham Bay and Lee Bay are within walking distance. The Exmoor National Park is an easy drive as are the villages of Lynton & Lynmouth. The nearest town is Barnstaple with its shops, a theatre, a cinema and a lovely Pannier market selling local produce. The Long Linhay has a modern, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and washer/dryer. The stylish living room has a wood burning stove, TV and audio system with Ipod dock. The large bedroom has a king size bed & TV. The bathroom has a bath and seperate shower. The Long Linhay offers a high level of comfort with oak floors, full central heating, free Wi-Fi and a private sun trap patio. All linen and towels are provided accept beach towels. The Long Linhay is a non smoking cottage and I regret we do not accept dogs.

About Kate Parker

Hi my name is Kate Parker, together with my husband Roger, we own and personally manage the Long Linhay. Our aim is to provide you with the very best accommodation to make your holiday as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. As we live on site we are always available if you need any help or advice. We have extensive local knowledge and can help you get the best out of your holiday.

Kate Parker purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Kate Parker chose Woolacombe

Roger and I feel very fortunate living in such a beautiful area of the country. Mortehoe is a lovely, warm and welcoming village and the area is steeped in history. We love walking the South West Coast path and exploring Exmoor and never get tired of watching the seals play off Morte Point. The countryside is stunning and each season has its own beauty.

What makes this cottage unique

The Long Linhay is set in an ideal location. You are surrounded by beautiful countryside and wonderful views with suberb walking from the door. However you are only a short distance from the beaches and villages and lots of amenities and tourist attractions should you choose to visit them. You CAN have the best of both worlds!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The number of repeat bookings that Kate & Roger receive tells you everything you need to know. Quite outstanding

Lovely little cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was down the farm drive with sweeping views of the sea. The lounge was bright with high ceilings and characterful beams. It was great having a log burner. Lovely views of the sea from the kitchen. The bed was very comfy. The entire cottage was spotlessly clean. It's in a perfect location to explore North Devon. Kate was very welcoming and helpful

Peaceful weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

The Linhay is a hugely comfortable space whether you want to relax inside our out. Everything is to a high standard which just made our stay perfect and with the wilds of Devon on our doorstep, we could really explore and get away from 'life'!

Best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Christmas break in Devon and stayed in the Long Linhay and it was absolutely perfect. We were close to plenty of National Trust walks and it was a great way to get away and spend some quality time with my partner. They were so accommodating and friendly and I really felt at home

A lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional from start to finish. A warm welcome, scones and flowers and accommodation so well stocked with everything you could possibly need and more. Well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom and a comfortable bed. We really didn't want to leave. The seals at Morte point are a bonus with numerous walks from the door.

Thank you!

Property very clean and spacious, with all the appliances you'd expect in a modern house

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyable stay. This is an excellent location for exploring North Devon, with several walks right on the doorstep. The village of Mortehoe is less than 15 minutes walk, and this has a couple of pubs and cafes. Woolacombe itself is 5 minutes drive, and has a lovely, large sandy beach. In some of the other smaller coves nearby, there are plenty of rockpools for exploring. All in all, a relaxing holiday even allowing for the British weather.
