    • “We booked a last minute holiday via the website - we were contacted early next morning and everything booked with ease over the phone. Our cottage was lovely and was exactly as discribed on the website. Would recommend booking with helpful holidays and the lovely cottage.”

    Mrs Svensen, Bexhill-on-Sea, September 2018

    • “We had a lovely holiday staying at the Linney. Everything great, including the weather. Really peaceful, beautiful countryside and superb accommodation.”

    Mrs Boyle, Fareham, September 2018

    • “This lovely cottage is a favourite of ours. It is very clean, comfortable and the owners are welcoming and helpful. The views from the garden are amazing and our little dog loved going out to watch the cows and chickens.”

    King, Dunmow, September 2018

    • “This was our fifth time staying at The Linney, but my parents, brother, sister in law and niece's first time (they were in Battens). Sue and Simon are so lovely and the farm feels like coming home. My daughters are both very fond of the place, as are we. New outdoor furniture was welcomed. The Holmes family.”

    Mrs Farrow, LEEDS, August 2018

    • “Lovely, comfortable accommodation. Spotlessly clean. Sue and Simon, who're on site, were perfect hosts. We enjoyed the quiet, rural setting and our kids liked the table tennis and table football in the games room too.”

    Mr Sage, Huntingdon, July 2018

    • “The Linney was in a perfect spot with wonderful views. It is in an ideal position for exploring East Devon. We had wonderful weather and enjoyed some lovely walks with our dogs!! Sue and Simon were perfect hosts welcoming us with cake, milk eggs and wine!!! Would definitely recommend this cottage!!”

    Mrs Booth, Bury, June 2018

    • “very quiet just what we needed for a rest”

    Mr Harkness, Cirencester, June 2018

    • “Sue and Simon were very friendly and welcoming. They were great hosts and extremely patient with the kids.”

    Mr Butcher, OXFORD, May 2018

    • “The location of the property, being a lovely barn conversion out in the countryside in the peace and quiet. Everything was clean and tidy and obviously well looked after. The property owners were really nice and nothing was too much trouble. Home made cake, fresh eggs, milk and wine were all very much appreciated. Able to eat outdoors in the garden, admire the view and just relax and take it easy. We would have stayed longer if we could, but I'm pretty sure it's fully booked. Ideally situated, being just a few miles from Seaton, Beer, Lyme Regis and other great places to see. Would definitely go there again if we wanted the ideal holiday home in East Devon.”

    Mr Edwards, Ludlow, May 2018

    • “this was by far one of the best cottages I have ever stayed in. everything was absolutely spotless, no matter what you wanted or needed was there. would recommend this holiday cottage to all. thank you for the eggs, cake and wine that was left also the jug of milk. thank you for such a nice place to stay. Mrs B Wolton”

    Mrs Wolton, WINCHESTER, April 2018

    • “The actual booking was difficult. We had a question for the owners and whilst that was being communicated our week was put on pre-booking without notification us. That made it seem someone else made a reservation that week and so we almost booked something else. The intention was perfect but good have been better communicated. The cottage was more then we expected. It was in a beautiful location. It was very well looked after, complete and the owners were amazing. We loved it! The one improvement that could be made are better mattresses on the beds.”

    Mrs Riemsdijk, 7382bk, September 2018

The Property

4 miles from Colyton, deep in thick, lush hedgerow lanes in the Coly Valley, is the sleepy hamlet of Northleigh, 5 to 7 miles from the lovely coastal villages of Beer, Sidmouth and Branscombe. On the edge of Northleigh, three cottages converted from traditional Devon barns on a small mixed farm raising beef, free range poultry and a few piglets. An acre of lawn (barbecue) for energetic ball games or just sitting under a shading cherry tree and enjoying gorgeous rural views. Shared laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer) and games barn (table tennis, ¼-sized snooker table, darts, table football) which can be adapted into a big dining room for special occasions, by arrangement. When booked together, the cottages accommodate 14 guests. Ducks on the pond (fenced), cobblestones in the courtyard, a soppy dog and dignified cat make this an utterly charming place to stay, unwind and enjoy a friendly, rural idyll. The Linney: door from courtyard to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with TV/DVD and glazed doors to patio (table/chairs) and the shared lawn. Stairs up to two bedrooms - a double, and a twin (limited clothes-hanging space); bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Colyton: ancient little town on the River Coly with buildings dating from the Domesday Book, Norman church and unique, independently owned shops, pubs and restaurants. Tramway to the coast at Seaton, 3 miles. Pecorama railway attraction/gardens, 5 miles. Honiton, 7 miles; Lyme Regis, 9. On the East Devon Way footpath between Lyme Regis and Exmouth.
