    • “Absolutely brilliant, gorgeous location, and accommodation was just great. Can't fault it . Highly recommended, you really must stay here . We will definitely be back for another holiday. Thanks for a lovely holiday, and dog friendly too . !!!. These two dogs enjoyed exploring Dartmoor and the surrounding area.”

    Mr Langford, Ryde, August 2018

    • “A lovely Cottage with every thing we needed, peaceful and quite. Being on the very edge of the moor our dog thought he had gone to doggy heaven. only one sore point, my head, as one wall had a slope which came down to within 2 ft of the floor. Ok when you got use to it. G Denness”

    Mr Denness, Reading, June 2018

    • “We spent a relaxing week at the Linhay and were really impressed with the accommodation. The facilities and furnishings are all of a high quality and the owners are friendly and helpful. We’ll defiantly consider a repeat stay when we visit beautiful Dartmoor again.”

    Mr Wells, LISS, June 2018

    • “An excellent property which is equipped with quality items. Good location. Excellent local pub for food. Congregation at Lydford Church very friendly and interested in visitors. Lots of places to visit within reasonable driving distance.”

    Mr Heron, BOLTON, June 2018

    • “Great holiday experience. If anything the property description and photographs didn't quite do justice to the Linhay, a lovely, comfortable and stylish apartment set in beautiful surroundings.”
