very nice stay
We had a very nice stay at The Linhay, enjoyed it very much, so peaceful and relaxing. Again at any time.
Lovely relaxing break in a beautiful location
The Linhay is just lovely. Well equipped, very clean and well maintained. The cream tea, fruit and basic items were a thoughtful touch and much appreciated. Great base for exploring North Cornwall. Can't fault a thing.
A great place to stay in the Cornish countryside
We really enjoyed staying at the Linhay. The pictures on the website should be updated as they don’t do it justice. The cottage has everything you need for an excellent self catering holiday and the garden is perfect for sitting out and watching the wildlife. It was so peaceful and the location was great for exploring Cornwall.
The Linhay is a lovely property- clean, comfortable and very well equipped- and located perfectly for the North Cornwall coast. Very comfortable, and the garden is lovely.
Excellet séjour - Nous recommandons ce gîte et cette très belle region que sont les cornouailles.

Only 6.5 miles away and approximately 10 minutes by car is Port Isaac, tucked away on the North Coast between Padstow and Boscastle. The village has recently been home to the television series 'Doc Martin' with Martin Clunes and both the original and latest series of Poldark were also filmed around the area. Much of the village is 18th and 19th century and a wonderful place to explore. Port Isaac is a maze of narrow lanes and pathways known as "drangs" with only one through road and traffic is discouraged. As with many places in Cornwall, Port Isaac once relied heavily on fishing and fish processing, yet these days the village now caters for many visitors with plenty of shops and eateries. Fish may also be bought from the local fish merchants in the fish cellars by the harbour. There are also the usual art and craft shops.
12 miles south is Bodmin, the former county town of Cornwall for many years and the only Cornish town to be recorded in the Domesday Book, which was lodged in the town's prison during the First World War. The county prison is now a museum and open to the public. It was the first prison in the country to have separate cells. The oldest part of the town is made up of mainly granite buildings clustered around the Bodmin Beacon. The Beacon is a 144 feet tall obelisk in memory of Sir Walter Raleigh Gilbert. The area around the Beacon which has woodland and traditional hay meadow was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1994.
Nearby Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwalls Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwalls highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.
Padstow is a charming fishing village at the head of the Camel Estuary. It has some lovely sandy beaches and at least 7 bays within 5 minutes drive. It is the start or end point of The Camel Trail depending on your point of view. The 17-mile trail is flat and runs between Padstow & Wenford Bridge along the disused and resurfaced railway line. Bikes are available for hire. Padstow, now famous for being home to Rick Steins The Seafood Restaurant, amongst other properties the celebrity chef owns in the town.
From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Stein's empire in Padstow. It is also a good base for exploring the South West Coastal Footpath, which covers its rugged coastline, and from which beautiful coves and spectacular views are worth seeing. Various water sports, fishing and golf are all on your doorstep.
Boscastle situated on rugged North Coast of Cornwall, has an incredibly picturesque tiny natural port. Once a thriving port, at the base of a ravine, serving North Cornwall, the village now survives on its tourism industry. The disastrous floods of 2004, unfortunately damaged some historic properties, but Boscastle is most definitely up and running again now. The Witchcraft Museum re-opened in 2005, houses an extensive collection of related artefacts including a Dutch collection donated to the museum in 2000. There are many gift shops and cafe's in the village, as well as a pottery, with amazing coastal walks and views to each side of the valley. On the north side of the harbour at Penally Point is a natural blow hole, which at low tides with enough swell sends plumes of water high into the air. There is a fabulous 7 mile walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven is extremely popular, although it is quite a testing length of coastline. Many sites of interest surround Boscastle with lots to explore. Nearby Tintagel and a ruined castle heralds myths of King Arthur, with Camelford rumoured to be Camelot of old.
