“A beautiful cottage in an excellent location for touring south Devon”
Reviewed 24 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The Linney is very easy to find, and has everything you need for the prefect break. It is warm, well- furnished with good kitchen facilities and an excellent shower.
The owner, Graham, is very helpful, and provides excellent directions, and also instructions about how to operate the hot water, heating etc. A tasty array of Devon produce was very welcome on arrival.
During our stay week we visited Burgh Island ( try to get there when you have to cross on the Sea Tractor; great fun), Salcombe, Dartmouth , Torquay , Brixham, Exeter, and Dartmoor. Closer to the cottage, there are lovely walks at East Prawl and Start Point. We are National Trust members, but even if you aren't, it is well worth getting an annual membership if you come here, as Overbeck's, Coleton Fishacre, Castle Drogo and Greenway are within easy reach . We visited them all, and I would recommended them highly ( although be aware that Castle Drogo is undergoing major renovations). The highlight of the trip was a short drive to Dittisham, summoning the little passenger ferry that takes you to Greenway ( just a few minutes ride across the river Dart, and we saw a seal) having a wonderful 4 or so hours at Agatha Christie's holiday home, and catching the ferry back later in the day.
We loved The Linney so much that after quite busy days of sightseeing, we ate in most evenings and enjoyed the comfort of the cottage . On two evenings we popped down to the Ashburton Arms , a couple of minutes walk down the road and had enjoyable meals. If we come to the area again, we'll definitely stay at The Linney.

“Excellent ! Value for money & everything you need !”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is a lovely cottage very near to Kingsbridge . It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The communication and help we received from the owner Graham was absolutely first class.We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this cottage and hope to go back in the near future.

“Lovely, comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, well equipped cottage. It's close to beautiful estuaries and coast. Very good area for bird watching too. All in all a great week in a lovely part of Devon.

“A lovely little cottage, clean, well appointed and in a great location!”

All on one level, The Linney offers two comfortable double bedrooms, a well appointed, very clean bathroom, a nice well equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge/diner with everything you could ever need on holiday, including decent WiFi, DVD and TV with surround sound and plenty of DVD's, CD's and books if you have a dull weather day. The location is excellent, ideal for exploring the local beaches of Salcombe, of which there are many. The Owner, Graham has taken great care to provide pretty much everything you need for a stay, whether it's for a few days or a few weeks and was very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely week there and could easily have stayed longer. There's plenty to do in the surrounding area. I'd highly recommend The Linney to friends or family, the only slight drawback was the lack of an outside area to sit, which was a shame as we had such lovely weather during our stay and it would have been nice to sit out in the evening. That said, the local pubs including the Ashburton Arms (a few doors down the road - but very quiet) and the Seven Stars in Kingsbridge both served exceptional food and were very welcoming. We had one 'bad' meal out during our stay which was at the The Creeks End Inn in Kingsbridge, where we found the food and service really poor. Food was mainly frozen, and really stood out from the nice fresh meals we'd had at the other two local pubs.

The local beaches in Salcombe were fantastic, perfect for children with soft sand, rock pools and lovely shallow, clean (and warm) sea too! The best was North Sands, Salcombe, closely followed by Hope Cove, then South Sands.
Be warned - Blackpool Sands looks like a beautiful beach but is NOT a sandy beach, it's ALL gravel which really hurts your feet! Take shoes with you - not flip flops! The sea also drops off into a deep shelf so isn't the best for small kids, even my 12 year old was scared of the waves as the gravel shore meant it was easy to slip in deeper than you were comfortable with or fall over standing on the steep edge.

All in all we had a wonderful week and we're very likely to return to the Linney again, I can't recommend it highly enough. It was a great, good value place to stay with a nice, helpful owner and good neighbours. My small family of three loved it - we think you will too!

Only missed 5 stars due to the lack of outside seating!

Thank you for this excellent and very detailed review, Scott. You are right about The Creek's End in Kingsbridge, that's why I don't mention it in the recommendations! So glad you all had a good time! Do come again. Regards Graham
