Just had a Christmas break and loved every minute. The weather was absolutely horrendous but the cottage was lovely cosy and warm. The dogs also loved the lake to run around.

A pleasant location with good access to the coast and Exmoor. Linhay is cosy with a small kitchen, dining and living area. The bedroom by comparison is spacious. Lots of steps which didnt bother us but could cause problems for some. Clean and fairly well equipped but beware the cutlery knives (a triumph of design over practicality). In spite of theRead more pleasant setting there are no nice views from Linhay. Hide

Very comfortable cottage in a quiet location. The only small issue that I had is that I am 6' 2" tall and the overhead shower head seems to be 6' 2" above the shower tray. Other than that I enjoyed my week's stay at the cottage.

Linhay is a perfect cottage for exploring Exmoor. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The enclosed garden was ideal for our dog and he enjoyed our holiday as much as we did. We will definitely book this cottage again or probably South Barn next door and come again with friends or family.

This is a lovely cottage. It is comfortable and well equipped. The log supply is generous: we had a fire each night (4 evenings) and didn't run out of wood. It is away from anywhere and is very quiet. There is plenty of space to take dogs for a late night, or early morning wee. The ONLY, very minor downside is that, while there is an enclosed gardeRead moren (Linhay), it is on a steep slope and our dogs wouldn't wee on it which meant taking them out of the gate...! Hide
