Hosts/owners lovely, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The property perfect for myself as a wheelchair user.

Great property and hope to stay again in future years. Big plus having the Standard Inn at the end of the lane for fantastic Sunday lunch or dinner on any day!

Massively recommend.

Lovely single storey building with secure area for our dog. Well placed to walk to the coast and beaches. What a delight!

A fabulous stay at Long Linhay, such a comfortable cottage and the beautiful garden was perfect for relaxing in at any time of the day and completely safe for our dogs too. Great location being just an easy walk into Portscatho or to Towan beach - we can’t wait to return!

Our third time of visiting, as for us, it’s just perfect. We love the fact that it is quite rural, but only a short walk from the village. A beautiful enclosed garden for our dog. Has everything we need. The new addition of a bbq & WiFi were very welcome. Comfy garden loungers. The lovely owners are only a stones throw away, should you ever need them, but are never intrusive. Some great coastal walks & each year we’ve found another hidden gem of a beach. Looking forward to next time already.

We spent a wonderful week at Long Linhay which was helped by amazing weather. Even if the weather had been bad, we would have enjoyed the time in this warm, comfortable holiday home. The central heating was excellent and there was always plenty of hot water. Long Linhay is ideally situated close to Portscatho and the coastal path. We can especially recommend the walk to Towan beach ( where there is a loo and coffee shop). There are so many footpaths to choose from so a map of local walks is a must. We loved the fact that the garden was fully fenced for dogs which made life much easier. If you want to eat out, we can recommend The Standard Inn ( about a ten minute walk ) but would suggest that you book if you are going in the evening. We also enjoyed lunch at the Plume and Feathers in Portscatho and the Roseland Inn at Philleigh. All are dog friendly. Thank you Tony and Jude for a wonderful stay….we feel totally refreshed! I’m sure we will be back!

Comfortable cosy barn conversion in great position for walking. Safe enclosed driveway and rear garden for the dogs. Very friendly and helpful owners on hand if needed.

Thank you for your great comments for Long Linhay - we are so glad that the property worked so well for you and your dogs. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

Another lovely stay at Long Linhay, spotlessly clean, lovely owners! This time we also had the bonus of our phones picking up a signal, which was much appreciated! Would highly recommend.

We had a fabulous stay at Long Linhay (we have previously stayed at Hayloft which is the neighbouring cottage). The cottage is very comfortable and had everything that we needed. The garden was perfect for our dogs as it was fully enclosed, it was lovely for us to sit out in too. The cottage is in a beautiful and very tranquil location, there was no noise at all. The location is also really good for exploring the peninsula and is very close to the coast path. Portscatho is within easy walking distance and we can highly recommend the Sunday roast! All in all, we had a great stay. We would recommend Long Linhay and I'm sure we'll be back to stay again.

We had a lovely holiday at Long Linhay and spent most of our time walking from the door. Rosie our working cocker loved the garden as did we.

Long Linhay is a fantastic place to stay. It is so private set down a pretty and very quiet country lane. The garden backs onto fields and it is well looked after and in good shape for when you arrive. The interior is well kitted out and a very comfortable base or home from home. Portscatho was a 2 minute drive to park in New Road for the beach or a lovely stroll across fields which took 10 minutes maximum. It really is a great base to enjoy peace and relaxation but also the wonderful amenities near by in Portscatho , The wonderful beach and not forgetting the amazing Hidden Hut. I will be back !

Brilliant location, very peaceful. A lovely cottage, just right for a family of 4. Walking distance of stunning beaches and local amenities. Would definitely rebook Long Linhay.

Fantastic location, excellent for a peaceful & enjoyable break in a stunning part of Cornwall, only a stones throw from the village & coastal path. Very spacious cottage for 4 adults & 2 dogs, great secure garden. Perfect for us!!

An excellent cottage that is tucked away from everywhere. Great for lots of walks. Close by to two brilliant beaches. The cottage is extremely well equipped both inside & for the garden. Very secure garden for dogs/children. Lovely fluffy white towels. Flowers & homemade cake on a arrival a lovely welcoming touch. A great pub in the village- The Plume of Feathers. Staff very welcoming. The cottage owners live near by, but not in sight & are very welcoming & happy to help with any advise should you need it. Meets our away from it all holiday perfectly. Our second time of staying & have already booked for next year. We love it.

The two cottages are exactly as described on website. Clean,comfortable good location for walks, beach cafes and beaches. Interesting bird and wildlife around the cottage. Very quiet location Easy to travel to nearby locations. Would definitely reccomend

Lovely barn conversion with an impressive wooden frame in the main section. It was very well layed out, light and airy as well as cosy. We received a great welcome with a decorated Christmas tree which was a real thoughtful treat and the tea tray set up including cake was much appreciated on our arrival. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dogs. We loved the peace and quiet and not having wi-fi for a few days was heaven. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

Great for walkers - walks in both directions, with the coastal path near by. Pleasant dog-proof enclosed sunny garden.

Another great week spent at Long Linhay in it’s wonderful setting. The weather was an absolute bonus too.

Extremely helpful owners. We all had a lovely holiday at Long Linhay. The cottage garden is lovely and we enjoyed sitting in the sun. Although Cornwall is busy, walking around the peninsula was very peaceful. Such nice weather meant we could swim in the sea at Towan.

lovely walks from the cottage so no need to use the car all the time.

Probably the best self-catering accommodation we’ve stayed in! I actually enjoyed the lack of phone signal & WiFi as it meant we could really switch off & relax. Perfect location, only a short walk to Portscatho for shop, pub etc but far enough away to be quiet & peaceful!

Long Linhay is set in the beautiful area of Roseland. Down a quiet country lane out of the village, so is very tranquil, while having easy access to the coast & lots of excellent walks. Everything you could need to have a perfect holiday. Loved it so much, we have booked again for next year.

We enjoyed our stay and the lovely rural and quiet location. The parking and garden areas are superb. We enjoyed the birdlife in the garden and the visiting Deer in the evenings. A lot of fab walks straight from the cottage, definitely recommend walking down the lane to Towan Beach which is lovely and deserted first thing and then walking back along the coast path. Lovely way to start the day! Also walking into Portscatho is a nice and easy walk - cut through the caravan site to the coast path and come out right by the Harbour. It's a shame we had no phone signal or 4G whilst in the cottage as the property doesn't have wifi we did find this a hinderance - but overall we had a great week, thank you!

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us have your thoughts and we're delighted that you enjoyed your break at Long Linhay. We don't advertise this property as providing WiFi - lots of our properties do offer this facility and we've added a filter to our search facility online so you can tailor your search to only show properties that have a WiFi connection. We hope this is helpful for the future. Sadly mobile phone signal can sometimes be a little hit and miss in certain locations and with certain networks, which is unfortunately beyond our control. We'd always recommend having a quick look at a mobile network map if this is an important feature to a holiday - there are some helpful links on our website on our Technology page.

A wonderful stay in a cosy and comfortable cottage. Very well equipped and a shower that you won’t want to leave! Comfy beds, cosy rooms and a lovely secluded garden! We would definitely stay again!

Second time we have stayed here, it is a lovely holiday home in a peaceful and gorgeous location, thanks to the owners for sharing it! The property would benefit from a WiFi connection - particularly given current agile working arrangements.

Despite the wildest weather possible, we had another great week at warm and cosy Long Linhay. Looking forward to our next visit.

A very comfortable cottage, within easy walking distance of pubs, shop, coffee shop and coast path. Had a great time despite the rain!

Glad to see you liked the area, we highly recommend the Sunday Roast at the Plume of Feathers down in Portscatho after a bracing cliff walk. Tanya, Customer Support

Very helpful owners, nice touch the cake on our arrival Super secluded secure garden. Lovely well equipped cottage in a great location. We’d definitely return.

Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and easy parking, near the shop really quiet location.

The cottage is equipped to a very standard and is in a great location. The owners, Mr & Mrs Tomlinson, we’re most welcoming and always on hand to help with any queries. We would throughly recommenced it to anyone wanting a holiday in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Our third visit to Long Linhay and as comfortable and relaxing as ever. A quiet and peaceful location with a dawn chorus second to none. We thoroughly recommend The Boathouse Cafe & Restaurant in the village, a warm welcome,dog included, and delicious food. We will be very happy to return.

Everything we needed for a happy and relaxed stay, right down to the welcome tea-tray with lemon cake and flowers on the table. The private garden was a delight as we were blessed with good weather with only one wet day. The location of the cottage is within easy reach of all that the Roseland Peninsular has to offer. Thank you Mr. & Mrs Tomlinson for a lovely holiday.

Long Linhay is a very comfortable and well equipped property in a lovely quiet location with easy access to beaches and the coastal path, as well as being just a short walk (20 minutes) into Portscatho. We are a party of four including a disabled person, plus a dog, and this was our second visit. As we found it so accommodating on the first visit we decided we had to come back, and we are very glad we did. I'm sure we'll visit again - thank you.

We're absolutely thrilled that you returned for a second visit and that you found this property so accommodating. Long Linhay offers the perfect base to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life but is perfectly located to explore this lovely part of the county. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can welcome you back for a third stay! Tressa, Customer Support

Excellent location, within easy walking distance of Portscatho, the coastal path and the sheltered inland walks.
Very sheltered garden behind the property and excellent showers in the two bathrooms!!

A very relaxing, peaceful stay in this beautiful property. It is extremely well equipped and very cosy, with a lovely garden and easy access. Good parking facilities and an easy walk to the nearby villages. Lovely surrounding countryside and a real stress-buster. All in all, delightful and thoroughly recommended.

It's great to see that you enjoyed your stay here - it's such a perfect little tucked away spot, and a walk along the coast path to Portscatho is gorgeous (perhaps with a little liquid refreshment or a bite to eat at the Plume of Feathers before heading back...?). We hope you'll visit again soon. Tanya, Customer Support

Another wonderful relaxing week spent at the lovely and welcoming Long Linhay. It’s location is special and can be enjoyed all year round.

Long Linhay is a relaxing barn conversion situated in a quiet and peaceful location. Having two en suite bedrooms is a definite plus and the power shower is a joy! an ideal spot for walking the coastal path .

Really great two bathroom barn, full of light and contemporary design set in peaceful setting with good on site parking.

We first stayed in Long Linhay shortly after it’s conversion from barn to cottage and we were delighted to find that it still looks and is, in excellent order. It’s in a wonderful peaceful setting, has spacious accommodation(which includes great parking) and a lovely garden for both humans and dogs.

We were very happy to return to Long Linhay,this time for 2 weeks.As before we felt very comfortable and “at home”. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this lovely location and the excellent walks from the door and further afield. A wonderful holiday and we’ll be back next year!

I truly lovely property. Fantastic location. Great garden. Clean and comfortable.

Liked the location, layout of property, peace and quiet.

The property is lovely, in a great location and the owners very friendly and helpful. A perfect property for a small family, very well equipped and in a quiet location yet still close to the village. A great base for exploring Roseland.

Lovely Cottage which is down a very quiet country lane. Fantastic walks with no need to use the car. Lots of wildlife in the area, a seal colony along the coast path and many gardens to visit. The Cottage had everything we needed and much more and was beautifully furnished. We took our dog and found the enclosed drive area and garden ideal. The owners left some flowers and came for our arrival which was a lovely touch. The Cottage didn't have wifi or any phone signal so we could truly relax and get away from it all!

Lovely cottage, beautiful location, peaceful and relaxing stay.

The location is great, our favourite beach is a walk through the estate. Coastal path is within walking distance. We love this area and know it well. The barn and garden is perfect for us and the dog. It was a surprise there was no WiFi, no phone line at all. We would probably need a washing machine if we stayed for a week in the summer with sandy towels. Also because the main bed was broken and resulted in your head and legs being higher than your body it was painful and my husband slept on the floor each night. The owner came over twice to help fix it and was lovely but it needed replacing and was the main disappointment of the holiday really.

Thanks for your comments about Long Linhay, we're glad you enjoyed the walks in the area. WiFi isn't currently available at this property - you can search on our website or ask our Booking Office team for details of properties that can offer this if it's important to you. We were really sorry to hear about the bed and will follow this up with the owner to ensure the problem is now sorted. Tanya, Customer Support

Quiet peaceful location. Some lovely walks for dog owners.

Peaceful setting.

We had a truly wonderful holiday. Glorious weather,lovely long walks on the coast path, delicious food (especially at The Royal Standard), crazy ball games & cooling paddles on the beaches with our dog. At the heart of it all was Long Linhay. Instantly relaxing & blissfully quiet.Very comfortable bed & excellent shower room. A big thank you to the owners,Judy & Tony,who were very welcoming & should be very proud of the lovely holiday home they have created. We have already reserved two weeks for next year.

If you are in need of a peaceful, relaxing retreat, this is the place for you. From the lovely welcome tray with tea and cake to greet you to the beautiful garden to relax and enjoy the peace- it is a haven. This was our second visit and we will certainly return. I would love to go back again right now!!

Long Linhay is an absolutely charming cottage in a beautiful location. It is very well equipped and offers plenty of space both inside and out. We loved the peace and privacy of the cottage and its gorgeous garden, but also enjoyed being within walking distance of Porthscatho, Gerrans and the coastal path. The weather was kind to us so it really felt like a little piece of paradise! The owners were also friendly and helpful. We didn't want to leave and would highly recommend a stay here.

owners were very welcoming and friendly.

An excellent cottage for 4 people

We arrived after a long journey from Scotland to find a welcoming tray of tea and custard tarts. The accommodation did not disappoint. It was clean, very comfortable and we lacked for nothing. We had our Border Collie, Skye, with us and the enclosed garden was perfect for her to have a wee run in the morning. The barn is incredibly well situated to walk along the coastal path and we were able to cycle on very quiet roads with Skye running alongside. More hanging space for clothes would have been great, but this is a very minor niggle. Our first visit to Cornwall - we will be back :)

We had a very enjoyable stay at Long Linhay this summer. The property felt spacious and comfortable and the layout (bedrooms at either end with individual en-suite facilities) meant that we weren't feeling on top of each other - a good thing with 2 teenage children. We have had numerous holidays in Roseland (and Gerrans in particular) over previous years, so can obviously thoroughly recommend the area. Worth being prepared for the limited phone signal and relatively sparse wifi available locally, but I don't personally see this as a problem at all - nice to have some peace and quiet.

A lovely cottage, well presented with easy access to the village, very peaceful area, perfect for pets we had a very enjoyable stay

Highly recommended

A beautiful and inviting barn set down a peaceful country lane. The barn has a stunning private, garden which leads onto gorgeous countryside with an abundance of wildlife. A wonderful, relaxing retreat, would definitely stay the again.

Loved that there was a welcome tray and flowers - much appreciated
