We very much enjoyed this cottage, peaceful in beautiful surroundings, spacious and well equipped and so accessible to many west country locations.

Delightful property, quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage quite late in the season and were a bit wary that there were other properties around it. We usually book cottages on there own to give us privacy. Our fears were unfounded as the cottage was very private and we hardly saw the neighbours. The garden is very spacious with mature trees and plenty of wildlife, and with a lovely area to sit and eat or relax.

The cottage itself was very spacious and comfortable with everything you need, very much a home from home.

Although the location of the cottage was very rural you could be on a main road within a matter of minutes and the coastal resorts and Dartmoor were an easy drive.

All in all we found this cottage to be in an ideal central location to explore South Devon and Dartmoor and would not hesitate to recommend it to others wishing to visit the same area.

We loved our stay here, it's in the best location and is well appointed. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week away and the cottage met all of our needs. It's in a fantastic location in the countryside yet so close to all the things we wanted to do.

The cottage is well appointed and clean.

We would love to come and stay here again.

A gem

  • 5 of 5

We enjoy self catering holidays. This is one of the best we have stayed in. It is well furnished and comfortable. The standard of linen and kitchen items is very good. There was nothing missing. The location is quiet and pleasant. The owners are helpful and responsive. And oh! the artwork!

Lovely comfortable cottage

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Linney. The cottage is comfortably furnished for four people and has a very well equipped kitchen. It was clean and well maintained. The garden is secluded and peaceful and full of garden birds. The cottage is very well positioned for exploring Dartmoor etc and we also enjoyed the pretty local footpaths. We would definitely recommend the property to a friend.

A very well appointed cottage in a good location,

  • 4 of 5

The quality of the property exceeded our expectations, it is very well appointed ( a lovely kitchen, crockery, cutlery, even DVDs for the children ).

It has a lovely garden and a very nice location, you feel to be in the countryside, even though civilisation ( and supermarkets ) are just a few minutes away.

Location

From the Owner

We bought this charming cottage in 2011, spent 6 months renovating it to a high standard, and this is our third year of renting it out. We stay there ourselves whenever we can. We find it's an excellent antidote to city living! We love this part of Devon, its remote yet accessible, in the country , but only a couple of miles from civilisation. There's loads to see and do here. I feel we have only just started to explore this part of the world there is so much here.
