  • "Super little cottage well situated to explore the Devon coast."

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Linney."

    Lovely cottage, with everything you need, great kitchen. We loved the fire. Bed was very comfortable. Our dog loved the beaches for running.

  • "Thanks for looking after us and providing an enjoyable place to stay."

    We liked the quirky design and presentation of your warm and comfortable property. We were very happy with the convenient car parking space and the quiet, safe location. As a point of information not complaint, we felt that the shower curtain, fridge and TV would benefit from being renewed or upgraded before too long.

  • "We had a great week at The Linney."

    Beautifully decorated, very clean and a well-designed barn conversion. Although it was a smaller property, there was plenty of room for two to spread out. Parking right outside the door and a very quiet neighbourhood. Pete and Vicky were lovely hosts and it was a real pleasure to talk to them around the property. They were always available and helpful, but never intrusive. Thank you so much.

    Accomodation was excellent and the location ideal for visiting North Devon. We would have given 5 Stars however the WiFi needs updating as it continually drops out.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We have taken your comments on board, we are also very pleased to hear you enjoyed The Linney and beautiful North Devon. Property Owner

    Had a lovely time in The Linney. Easily accessible from Bideford and everything was made to make us feel welcome.

  • "Quite a small place, ideal for one but two would need to be friendly."

    Only two saucepans but otherwise well equipped. Warmed up quickly despite some cold weather. Easy to get to but a fair distance to wet weather attractions, lots of good places in reach for good weather days. Good size storage space for clothes. Two rooflights have no blinds so might be an issue in summer if you like a very dark bedroom. Quiet.

    All the facilities you could wish for in such a small building, really nicely converted into a comfortable little place.

  • "This is a very well designed and tasteful property offering a great deal of comfort, very well appointed."

    The area is delightful and I would recommend. The only downside for dog owners is that there is no safe area to release the dogs and they have to at all times remain on leads. This is inconvenient as they have to be accompanied at all times. Some dogs don’t respond to their toilet training while restrained.

  • "The Linney is small but very cleverly fitted out to seem much larger."

    All the facilities are spotlessly clean. A very comfortable little barn conversion ideal for two people plus dogs. The grounds are quite large and ideal for that first morning walk before breakfast. We were somewhat surprised to find towels and flannels were provided, not usually our experience. Definitely a plus there. The bed was supremely comfortable and warm. Kitchen facilities covered most requirements, however when on holiday we prefer not to cook but to eat out. Tea, coffee and toast was about our limit! Altogether a highly recommended holiday let.

    Very friendly and helpful owners on site. Quite location but not far to lots of places to visit and lovely pub close by . WiFi virtually non existent unless standing in the wood shed ! Dog friendly but no enclosed space , so dogs required to be on leads at all times . During covid restricted check in and out times made the holiday feel very short and having to provide our own towels and bed linen increased the amount of luggage we needed to take and washing when we got home ! Understandable during these difficult times .

    !. It’s a shame that the local pub does not allow dogs but there are a couple within easy driving distance that do although after a days walking we were quite happy to return to the cottage and cook a quick meal with a glass of wine!. We had a lovely holiday and wouldn’t hesitate to book again.

  • "Lovely quiet clean village location."

    Be aware that the access roads to Littleham are extremely narrow with passing places. The accommodation (The Linney) was excellent, clean , tidy and well equipped with everything that we needed for an excellent holiday week. The beach at Westward Ho is only a 10 minute drive away and the supermarkets on the outskirts of Bideford are only about 1 mile down Clovelly road just from the entrance to the narrow road which is about 2 miles into Littleham . Hoping to book again next year. Much to be recommended.

  • "It was a lovely cottage which was perfect for us and our dog."

    We enjoyed exploring the area and the fact that we were away from the towns/beaches meant that we explored more than we probably would have done otherwise. The owners thought of everything even providing a picnic basket and flasks for you to borrow should you wish and starting you off with things like washing up liquid and toilet paper. They were very friendly too and it was great to see chickens wandering about the place.
