    “We had a wonderful stay at the Linhay.”

    The cottage was spacious for two people and a small dog, it had everything we needed and was very well presented, clean and comfortable. We were greeted with a cream tea which was just what we needed after our trip there. The hosts were friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. We felt like we could ask should there be anything we needed and it would be no problem, but the cottage was so well equipped we didn't need to ask for anything! ...

    The cottage was spacious for two people and a small dog, it had everything we needed and was very well presented, clean and comfortable. We were greeted with a cream tea which was just what we needed after our trip there. The hosts were friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. We felt like we could ask should there be anything we needed and it would be no problem, but the cottage was so well equipped we didn't need to ask for anything! The location of the cottage was great for exploring Dartmoor with our dog, with walks straight out onto Gibbet hill and Black down. The cottage is quiet, peaceful and isolated, surrounded by farm land, nature and bird song. It's ideally located to visit many of the sights of Devon and Cornwall and return home to a comfortable rest.

About the location

LYDFORD

Tavistock 6 miles; Okehampton 6 miles.

Nestling among mature woodland on the western slopes of Dartmoor, the historic village of Lydford is a jewel in this area of outstanding scenic beauty. To the north, just half a mile away, the high tors come right down to the village edge, while to the south the River Lyd winds its way through Lydford Forest on its tumbling course northwards. Lydford village has an interesting medieval castle and nearby Lydford Gorge (National Trust) with its peaceful woodland walks and White Lady waterfall is a must. The village also has a Post Office, pub and award-winning restaurant. Whether walking the moors, fishing, watching the amazing wildlife or just visiting the many attractions of this stunningly beautiful area, you'll never be lost for something to do. The moorland market towns of Tavistock and Okehampton are both a short drive away.
