Great location with amazing views across the camel valley.

Mr Mark S,

Will recommend to all my family and friends. Beautiful cottage and wonderful views . The hosts Ian and Jane were very welcoming and have done an amazing refurbishment .

Miss Maggie C,

Delightful setting; beautifully refurbished and presented.

Mrs Louise C,

Just perfect. Everything you could think of and more in the most beautiful destination. Our second visit and was just as wonderful as the first. Thank you :)

Miss Rachel S,

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 M,

We had a lovely holiday staying at the Linney over new year, the little extras that were included was a thoughtful touch & much appreciated. Would definitely recommend it.

Mrs Jeanette W,

Absolutely the most wonderful way to spend our Christmas this year. The Linney is warm and cosy and has all the amenities needed so that you don't want to go anywhere but stay at home and relax. Stunning views. Thank you and totally recommend.

Mrs Amanda R,


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.
