Great, well maintained, cottage with a lovely enclosed garden. Ideal accommodation for my wife and I together with my daughter, her husband, our grandchild (under 2 years of age) and a small dog. Close to the town of Ashburton and the Moors. Wouldn’t hesitate to book the cottage again the next time we visit Devon.

We absolutely loved Little Linhay and it is undoubtedly one of the most comfortable and stylishly decorated holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. Such a characterful property, beautifully converted and furnished with a delightful garden and stunning views over the surrounding farmland. It is perfectly situated to explore Dartmoor and conveniently close to Ashburton with its fantastic food shops - two wonderful delis, a proper butchers and the incomparable Creamo's for insanely delicious and inventive ice cream (our children were obsessed!) We were also pleasantly surprised how quick it was to get to the beach though we did set off very early to beat the summer crowds on the one day we went to the beautiful Mothecombe (recommend the excellent cafe above the beach, The Schoolhouse - a real cut above). We had the perfect family holiday at Little Linhay and would highly recommend it.

This is the perfect place to explore both Dartmoor and the South Devon coast. The accommodation itself is just as per the photos... beautifully designed and decorated, clean as a new pin, and very well kitted out with the basics. We really liked that all the cleaning products were eco friendly.

The owners live next door in case of emergencies and the countryside around the cottage is stunning. It's just a 15 minute drive uphill to the moor proper, and just a few minutes to Ashburton, which is a lovely small town with great locally owned shops. Highly recommended.

A truly relaxing break made possible by a fabulous cottage . The owners were on hand if we needed anything.

We very much enjoyed the peaceful location and beautiful views. The cottage was homely and comfortable, and we particularly enjoyed the really comfortable bed, and the shower. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Really lovely cottage with a stunning view in a great part of Dartmoor. Lovely food options locally and well positioned to explore Dartmoor and the coast. (Spiral stairs surprisingly tricky to get dog out to garden.)

Beautiful place to stay, quiet, relaxed Close to lovely walks , places to eat and the coast. Special place.

Lovely cottage lovely location highly recommend

Great cottage with lots of character. There is everything you need for a great holiday even if the weather isn’t great. Owners are very friendly and helpful. You will need a car as it is rural also I wouldn’t recommend it if you have mobility issues due to the spiral staircase. We are a family with two kids aged 9 and 14

Super location with a fabulous garden. Really nice sun loungers, better than our ones at home! Great views and lovely tranquil atmosphere. All mod cons and the children enjoyed Netflix. Have a care with your pet on the spiral staircase. Very helpful owners.

Devon seems to have a weath of craftsmen and independent shops, we can highly recommend a visit to The Devon Guild of Craftsman at Bovey Tracy for a snapshot of what's on offer. Jill, Customer Support

Beautiful cottage with breathtaking views Great stay comfortable and cosy

The cottage felt like home, everything we needed to relax. A perfect holiday in a perfect location. Thank you

We always enjoy staying at Little Linhay. It is located in a beautiful spot, and is a comfortable and well appointed home to come back to after a day out and about on Dartmoor or at the coast.

Lovely welcoming little cottage in a great spot. Handy for the moor and surrounding towns/villages. Cosy in a wet week in March but would be lovely in the sunshine too.

Lovely cottage in the Devon country side, lots of room and nice views. Internal staircase looks fabulous but a little precarious for the elderly and dogs accessing the garden.
