The Linhay is a tucked away single-storey retreat – and an ideal base for exploring the wonderful coastline. The cottage nestles alongside the barns, with a fully enclosed gravel courtyard, but just steps away is the start of the track leading down to the coast and some stunning views. The cottage is completely independent yet has the possibility of an internal link to The Parlour (2662) when the two cottages can be booked together for an extended family holiday; the link door consists of two doors with sound insulation between.
This working farm on the edge of the historic village of Chideock stretches gently downhill to the Jurassic Coast where one of Dorset's most famous landmarks – Golden Cap – rises above the sea. This is a great section of the South West Coast Path – a challenge to get to the top but rewarded with the stunning views.
Three original farm buildings have been converted into these lovely holiday cottages - The Linhay (2661), The Parlour (2662), and The Dairy (2663) – with great flexibility if you wish to book two, or all three, together. With the footpath leading from the original farmstead alongside fields directly to the coastal path and the pebbled beach, this is a perfect base for a family or walking holiday. There is a lovely family-friendly seaside pub at the end of the track, with its sunny beer gardens – a great treat at the end of the walk!
These three barn conversions are clustered together next to the existing farm buildings and children will delight in watching the tractors going past and working in the fields in the valley, especially at harvest time.

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.

The panoramic view across the valley from a local footpath. The Linhay is amongst the nearest group of buildings and Chideock village is to the right.
The much-loved cliffs of West Bay, which is very close to the cottage, the location for dramatic scenes on the television programme Broadchurch.
Visit Lyme Regis for fantastic fossil hunting at low tide. The Golden Cap estate, where you can walk for miles, is perfect for walkers of all ages.
Golden Cap is the tallest part of the Dorset coast and is a fantastic place for walks. There is also the sea at Charmouth and Lyme Regis, is you prefer something more adventurous!
Travel along the scenic coast road to Weymouth and spend a day partaking in water sports, swimming or walking along the beautiful sandy beach.
The countryside of Dorset has to be seen to be believed. These are the bluebell-covered slopes near to Lambert's Castle, which is very near to the cottage.
