From the manager

Access to the property is through a handy porch, ideal for leaving muddy boots or walking shoes in to dry off. The main living area is an open-plan sitting room within dining table, and L-shaped kitchen at one end. There are two comfy sofas and a prominent wood-burning stove to create a cosy and relaxing space. There are two bedrooms off the hallway, one has a kingsize double bed and one has a single. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, chest of drawers and views overlooking the fields and Barle valley below. The bathroom is also off the hallway, comprised of bath with shower over, toilet and hand basin. This property is not suitable for children under 5 years of age.

As the name suggests, Linhay Cottage is situated next to a working farm. A linhay (pronounced linny) is a traditional farm building; the open front and regularly spaced pillars are typical of this type of building. The cottage was once the farm's grooms quarters and overlooks the stable yard. There is a garden area to the rear of the property, which is fenced but not enclosed. The owners are still working on improving the outside areas of the cottage.

Please note, Linhay Cottage water comes from a private reservoir, it is treated for consumption before being supplied to the cottage.

Appliances and equipment

Linhay Cottage has a fitted, handmade kitchen with integrated fridge and dishwasher, electric oven with ceramic hob and microwave. Other equipment includes toaster, kettle, cookware, a comprehensive variety of kitchen utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses.

A television (with Freeview) and DVD player is provided in the living room and wireless broadband is available throughout the property.

A hair dryer is provided for your convenience.

Electricity and heating

Electricity and heating costs are included in the price of your accommodation. Linhay Cottage has oil central heating which will be set for you during the cooler months. There is also a wood-burning stove in the living area, a basket of logs, kindling and matches will be provided to get you going in the cooler months. Further logs can be purchased locally.

Linen and towels

Bed linen, duvets, blankets and towels are provided for your convenience, but please bring your own beach towels if you wish to take towels with you away from the property.

Other provisions

Tea, coffee and sugar will be provided. There may also be other non-perishable items like a salt, pepper and oil available.

Cleaning materials such as washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets/powder will be present in the property, and one to two toilet rolls will be provided.

Outside the property

There is a large stable yard which provides access to the front of the property. Outside furniture is provided to enable guests to enjoy this sheltered sunny spot. To access the garden area at the rear of the property, you must walk around the outside of the building. The garden is fenced but it is not enclosed at the present time. The owners are continuing to improve the outside areas around the house.

There is a ‘woodland walk' just down the lane from the property, which takes you out at the bottom of the first field, if you carry on walking down the hill through the fields you will come out on the footpath, right goes to Withypool or left to Landacre Bridge.


There is ample parking for two or three cars under the cover of the linhay beside the property, or on the concrete yard.
