Enchantingly romantic and an idyllic couples' retreat, The Linney is a unique self-catering home on the edge of Magestic Bodmin Moor. This beautiful and secluded setting will inspire writers, artists and romantics alike with its peaceful ambiance and rural setting. The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner offers guests a great place to relax, with a cosy log burner and a well equipped kitchen and the en suite bathroom boasts a decadent roll top bath to enjoy. You can also enjoy a welcome tray of a cream tea on arrival and Organic Trevarno guest toiletries in the bathroom.
It is one of 7 beautifully converted barns which now form the peaceful hamlet of Penrose Burden and if you wish to book the other cottages here, there is also Jingles, Goosehill, Butterwell, Troutstream, Otterbridge and Snappers. It's the perfect base to explore the North Cornwall coast with Port Isaac, Padstow, Rock, Boscastle and Polzeath all nearby and its central location makes both North and South coastlines easily accessible; the South with its long sandy beaches, historic ports, secluded creeks and the Eden Project, and the North with its dramatic cliffs, quiet coves, grand country houses and historic market towns.
There is a fabulous local pub nearby serving great food, a well stocked local shop and Post Office and access to walks over Bodmin Moor. A short walk to the start of the Camel Trail for walking or cycling where you can find the fabulous 'Snail's Pace Café' and also close to local craft at Wenfordbridge Pottery.

If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it. With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise. The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations. With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days. More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark. When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor? The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.
The Linney was a beautiful and picturesque little home away from home. The owner was really helpful and kind. The place is very snug, the bathroom is gorgeous. The view over the valley is really exceptional. We had a lot of rain when we were there but it didn't matter. The location is really accessible to Bodmin Moor (highly recommend) and it was equally easy to get to either the North or South coasts. Really recommend this quiet little hamlet for a proper quiet break from the busy life.Ms Clare Murphy - 3rd February 2019
