A very quiet and peaceful area, Cotehele (N. Trust) within walking distance, a local pub and ‘corner shop’ close by, relaxing back garden and comfortable cottage, welcoming hosts.
Mrs Cantan August 2023
Excellent reception on arrival. Paul and Nancy were perfect hosts from the moment we arrived until it was (a sad) time to leave. The property and surroundings very impressive. Nothing to complain about. Will definitely stay again.
Mr Keable July 2023
Our stay was (despite some not great weather) a very happy one. This was largely down to the quality of the accommodation and that the owners had taken great care to think everything through. In the kitchen, or living space or shower room, everything had been thought of. The welcome pack was one of the best we've seen: full of interesting suggestions (eating out, visiting, walking, etc) and advice. The welcome we received from the owners was very warm (including a bottle of wine and cream tea!).
The location feels well off the beaten track - wonderfully remote and so quite; perfect for de-stressing. But large supermarkets are quite close. We recommend Viewtown Linhay very highly indeed.

On arrival the property exceeded our expectations. It was equipped to a very high standard and spotlessly clean. Thee welcome gift was a nice surprise. We felt instantly relaxed and at home. It was lovely to meet the owners Paul and Nancy who made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed a very pleasant week at Viewtown Linhay and it's location was ideal for touring the area. We visited Newquay, the Eden Project, Tintagel, the Japanese Gardens, Looe and Plymouth.
Mr Poulton Poulton April 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our spring break at Viewtown Linhay which is situated in peaceful countryside and in an ideal location for exploring both Devon and Cornwall. Our stay was even better than we had hoped for with everything we could possibly need provided in this comfortable property with views over the garden to countryside beyond. Paul and Nancy had even left us a cream tea as well as wine and milk and gave us homegrown flowers on departure. Although we travelled further afield, you could easily spend days just exploring the immediate locality- the lovely gardens and house of Cotehele are very near, for example. Moreover, this property has an electric car charger, which made things really easy for us and will certainly be even more of an asset in the future. We would love to come back again to Viewtown Linhay!

The perfect peaceful holiday hideaway.
An OS map of the area would help with local walks.
Mrs Warren September 2022
An excellent cottage, well cared for, friendly hosts, beautiful views from the summer house. Loads of interesting places to explore without driving.
Mr Rodgers August 2022
This was our second stay at Viewtown Linhay and was every bit as enjoyable as the first. The property was spotlessly clean on arrival and is furnished and decorated beautifully. The views from the garden and patio are lovely; there is also a great little summerhouse that we enjoyed our coffee in each morning. Nancy and Paul, the owners, are great and made us feel so welcome. They provided us with a delicious welcome pack on our arrival and some beautiful flowers on our departure. There are lots of nice places to visit nearby. We visited Polperro for the first time and can definitely recommend the fish pie in The Three Pilchards pub. The beaches at Whitsand Bay are really nice. Thanks Nancy and Paul for a fantastic holiday.
Mr Dunn May 2022
Outstanding accommodation. Great location. Very friendly owners. Can't recommend it enough
Mrs Brass May 2022
This was our third visit to Viewtown Linhay and I'm sure we'll be there again. It is a comfortable place with a very good lay out and high quality fittings and equipment. The garden provides a beautiful view from the window, and is a lovely place to sit, either on the patio or in the summerhouse. The owners are friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. Guests are invited to stroll in their pretty market garden, and nearby wood and there are lots of wild birds to lift your spirits.
Mr Jones March 2022
Really happy with everything. The friendliness of the hosts was second to none. The location was good for ease to reach many locations. Would not hesitate to book again.
Mrs Connolly February 2022
Lovely cottage. Lovely setting. Lovely owners.
Mr Green October 2021
A splendid holiday home, comfortable and well furnished in a lovely location. Owners very helpful but not intrusive. One of the best places we have stayed.
Mrs Mortimer October 2021
We absolutely loved this property. We loved our long weekend at Viewtown Linhay. The photos and description really don’t do it justice. It was so clean and welcoming. The cream tea and wine left by Paul and Nancy were very welcome and delicious. Although this property is adjoining the owners’ property you are assured total privacy and they are welcoming and on hand if you need anything. We loved exploring this part of Cornwall and enjoyed Cotehele house and mill, Rame Head and Edgecumbe Country Park. We will definitely be back. We loved it. Thank you for the lovely flowers.
Mrs Cobb October 2021
I deal for one/two people who would like peace and quiet in a clean, well kept spot with lovely garden.
Mrs Muscroft September 2021
This really is a delightful hidden gem, so pretty, well equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Mr Hall August 2021
A perfect spot for a weeks holiday to explore the area. Lovely greeting by Paul and Nancy including wine, scones and cream. The perfect start to our break. Nothing was to much trouble. Fabulous modern and clean property with a lovely garden to relax in. Ideal location for us to visit lots of places - Torquay, Plymouth, Bude, Dartmouth, Eden Project, Newquay, Padstow, Looe. I'd thoroughly recommend Viewtown Linhay to anyone who's looking to explore the area - you won't be disappointed.
Mr Eaton July 2021
Lovely stay. Property was comfortable and clean. Would definitely recommend this property. If you want a peaceful holiday then this property is ideal.
Mr Gordon July 2021
An immaculate, stunning self catering accommodation, Nancy and Paul were the perfect host providing the best hospitality for their guests.
Mrs Martin July 2021
A lovely place to stay so peaceful with everything you need.
Mr Pope June 2021
Wonderful reception from the owners, including cream tea and wine on arrival and bouquet of alstroemerias on departure! All very much appreciated.
Mr Harman June 2021
The property surpassed expectations! It was so lovely I want to redecorate my home to be just like it. The photos don’t do it justice. It is light, airy and so clean. It was bigger that it looks but it also had a fabulous garden we could use, birds on the feeding station and the most lovely crockery. Everything you need was there. A real home from home. The owners were so generous and friendly. The location was excellent, under an hour to Looe and the same to Bodmin. The little woods to walk round was a lovely way to end the day. The eucalyptus plantation is lovely also. The air is so fresh and clean, we slept really well. A very quiet and peaceful location. We loved our day at Cotehele, lunch at Calstock and shopping at Tavistock. We drove home over Dartmoor, which was also breathtaking. I think we really did leave a little of our heart here.
MRS MORTON June 2021
Beautiful cottage in lovely quiet area. The cottage is very well equipped, modern and comfortable. The garden was a treat to sit in the evenings with local pheasants pacing around. The owners, Paul and Nancy were very welcoming and helpful. One of the loveliest cottages we have stayed in. Peace and quiet within a lovely area. Would love to stay again
Mr Greybanks May 2021
The perfect stay in a beautiful part of Cornwall. Ideal for walking and visiting lots of places of interest.
MR SIBBICK May 2021
A lovely and very well appointed property with excellent personal touches provided by the owners. We very much enjoyed our stay at Viewtown Linhay - in spite of the weather!
Mr Suhanda April 2021
Everything was in place. The host were a really lovely couple. They greeted us with cornish cream, jam and scions along with the wine. On our exit they gave us the flowers from there garden which was a nice gesture. They ensured they helped with all neighborhood details. They provided access to visit the entire farm which was beautiful. The location is very nice and beautiful. It is a value for money.
Mrs Richardson April 2021
A well equipped , well designed property , extremely comfortable in a beautiful spot in the Cornish countryside. Very friendly owners who kindly provided lots of extras such as wine, milk, tea, coffee with a beautiful display of freshly cut flowers from their flower farm. We had a wonderful week's stay there.
Mr Burt September 2020
Very clean and well equiped
Mr Young September 2020
A warm friendly welcome was just the start of a wonderful stay at this cottage. Everything catered for from fresh flowers, wine and home made scones on arrival to a fully equipped barbeque to use on the patio. Quality furniture and fittings, a very comfortable bed - all you could wish for and more.
Mrs Hossent September 2020
This cottage is ideal for couples seeking an escape to a place of peace and quiet.
Mrs White September 2020
We had a lovely stay. The owners have gone above and beyond to make their guests feel at home. Their attention to the smallest detail is impeccable and the standard of decoration and equipment on offer is one of the best I have seen in a holiday cottage. The welcome gift of home made Cream Tea's and a chilled bottle of wine were also very much appreciated after our long journey. I can not recommend this apartment enough, we hope to be be back again soon...
Mr Harker September 2020
I would like to thank the owners (whom, due to a span of time, memory has forgotten their names) who were so welcoming to me, and gave me a set of flowers as I was leaving. Truly a lovely couple, and I was delighted in their stay. Great place, great people, great holiday.
Mrs Chalmers August 2020
A real home from home. Spacious and well-appointed.
Mrs Lloyd August 2020
We had a wonderful holiday at Viewtown Linhay. This is a beautiful and well thought out conversion with good quality furnishings and fittings. The property is really well equipped and the Owners, who are very friendly and helpful, made us feel really welcome. We enjoyed total privacy with a lovely outlook onto the garden and use of our own private patio. With Cotehele within walking distance, the area is very atractive and superb for walking and cycling. We were able to store our bikes, when not in use, in the Owners garage which was much appreciated.
Mrs MacCallum August 2020
Thank you for a wonderful week in superb accommodation. There is nothing to beat Cornwall in the sunshine!
Mrs Brass July 2020
