Once an old South Hams outhouse used to store farm equipment and animals, but today the Linney has been transformed into a little gem of a cottage with every modern convenience.

From the recently refurbished galley kitchen with its microwave, dishwasher, washer/drier, fan oven and ceramic hob to its gleaming bathroom with a full-sized bath and powerful shower over, to its comfortable lounge/dining room complete with log-burning stove and surround sound TV entertainment centre, the Linney offers comfortable, centrally-heated accommodation for four people (2 double bedrooms) with its own dedicated parking for one car and plenty of off-street parking nearby.

Situated in the small village of West Charleton, less than two miles from the pretty town of Kingsbridge, with its pubs, shops, restaurants and supermarkets, the Linney is well-placed for enjoying the nearby South Hams' beaches of Torcross and Beesands, and the towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth.

Apart from its proximity to the South Devon Coast Path, there is great selection of footpath walking straight from the door with access to the peaceful Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary and some equally delightful inland footpaths. A paradise for bird-spotters (there is a nearby village hide available for guests to use), the area is renowned for its flora and fauna.

The Devon region

The South West conjures up sunny vistas of glorious beaches, green rolling hills, sparkling seascapes and dramatic emerald estuaries. All these and more are waiting for you in the area of South Devon known as the South Hams. Richly agricultural and unspoilt, this area has its own particularly mild and sunny microclimate.


West Charleton is situated less than two miles outside Kingsbridge, an attractive South Hams market town, with an array of shops and supermarkets, and of cafes and pubs for eating. The Linney is on the coastal road to Torcross and historic Dartmouth. It is also on a direct hourly bus route between Dartmouth and Plymouth on weekdays and Saturdays. The coastal villages of Torcross and Beesands are also just a short drive away and here you can access the magnificent South Devon Coast Path, from which you can get to some glorious unspoilt and secluded beaches. The upmarket delights of Gara Rock and Salcombe are within easy reach too. The locality is rich in bird and wildlife, all types of flora and fauna, and there is even a local village bird hive which guests may use overlooking the Kingsbridge estuary. With plenty of idyllic local walks available from the front door, there is hardly any need to explore any further!
