The Linhay snuggles behind The Parlour, in a sheltered courtyard, with views of Golden Cap.
The open plan design of this cottage has plenty of comfortable space, the kitchen area is cleverly fitted along one wall.
The dining-table sits to one side of the open plan living space, enjoy eating some local produce in this beautiful part of Dorset.
The bedroom has a king-size bed and enjoys the morning sunshine.
The Linhay is tucked at the back of this small development of three cottages, next to the remaining farm buildings, with an enclosed and sheltered private patio-area.
The bright and contemporary shower-room.
The Parlour (2662) is next to The Linhay. Both are designed to be very private but can be linked together to create a larger cottage.
The Linhay can be booked with The Parlour (2662) and linked together via a set of soundproofed double doors if guests wish; otherwise it is a very private cottage in its own right.
There are lovely details in The Linhay.

Excellent location, good pubs within walking distance with great gluten free options (The Anchor Inn at Seatown and The George Inn just up the road). Stunning coastal walks directly from the cottage. Owners were really helpful and good communication with them when we needed to with regards to Covid-19 restrictions. We'd definitely stay again. Thanks!

August 2020

The Linhay is a lovely, bright, airy cottage which is tastefully furnished in neutral colours. The lighting in the lounge is particularly good as you can adjust the level of lighting to suit reading or use dimmer lighting for TV watching etc. The outside seating area is tastefully decorated with pebbles and plants and is a good place to sit and enjoy a barbecue.

The location is ideal for those keen on walking as there are plenty of wonderful walks from the door. A footpath from the farm leads to the coast path and the beaches of Seatown and Eype. You will not be disappointed with the cottage but just be aware that there is no washing machine, so advisable to plan for this.

This is a fantastically well appointed cottage in an ideal, tranquil location near the sea. Great for walkers; right on the coastal path and no need for the car in the evening with two good pubs serving food within walking distance. The treats provided by the owners on arrival are the cherry on the cake. Highly recommend.

Lovely cottage in beautiful location. Plenty of scope for walking nearby and places to visit within 30 minutes by road.

September 2017

The LINHAY is a lovely cottage and most ideally situated as a base to explore the Dorset coast. It is well within easy reach of two lovely Chideock pubs and, as we tavelled most days on local transport to enjoy the local sights, two bus stops. It is also an ideal place to start local walks and hikes.

August 2017

An under-stated gem.

August 2017

You can report exactly what I have said.

July 2017

We would recommend it to anyone, particularly as a base for walking. Outstanding walks in every direction, and good pubs/restaurants within easy walking distance. Chideock is such an interesting village when you get to know it better. A fabulous area altogether.

July 2017

A great little holiday bolt-hole for 2 and well placed for visiting the Jurassic Coast. Bus service very good and local eateries offer a good range of options. Fascinating local history which is highlighted in an information sheet at the cottage. The little Catholic Church is a gem and well worth finding as it has a local history exhibition which was a rare find. The star has to be the coast and we had wall to wall sunshine which helped us to enjoy it to the full.

Delightfully decorated. Everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Thankyou to the owner who provided all the goodies including the best lemon cake ever.

April 2017

The cottage was decorated beautifully. It had a well equipped kitchen everything we needed to prepared a meal. Thank you for the welcome gifts lemon drizzle cake was delicious. This cottage is in a beautiful location 10mins easy walk to the beach and within easy drive to most dorset beauty spots. We enjoyed our view and walk up to gold cap. We hope to visit again next year

Good location for walking the coast, well maintained cottage, with a very good welcoming pack. There were some adverse comments in the visitor book about the view through the window from this cottage (railway sleepers). Being a photographer I actually found them interesting and photogenic. We are only there for a brief moment in a lifetime.

We loved the cottage and the area, which was surrounded by the hills and sheep! It was great to be able to walk to the village and down to the sea without getting in the car.

Having stayed in many holiday homes I can honestly say this is one of the best. So many little extras that made us feel welcome and comfortable. From tasty flapjacks, tea and milk in the well stocked kitchen to soap and hand lotion in the bright clean bathroom, fresh flowers, spotless bed linen, AMAZING. And set in a delightful location too.
