  • “A lovely Cottage with every thing ...”

    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.

    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

The property

At the end of a private drive on a smallholding in a hidden Dartmoor valley is The Linhay.

This very comfortable apartment has direct access to the moor and great views towards Brentor church and Dartmoor's highest tors.

Inside is bright, modern and easy.

Fifteen steps lead to the entrance via big French windows to the open-plan living area where you can sit in front of the wood burner, on a comfortable sofa and admire the views of the moor and valley.

The very pretty double bedroom has a king-size bed adjoins a lavish bathroom with a roll-top bath and separate shower.

You're welcome to wander the surrounding 20 acres of field, woodland and lakes, and there's a small enclosed patio garden with furniture for your own private use.

The Linhay is a really great base within easy reach of the most dramatic Dartmoor tors.

1½ miles from Lydford, with its spectacular gorge and 3 miles from Brentor, the scenery here is breathtaking.

For the sporty among you, you can walk or cycle along the Granite Way, or Roadford Lake offers an array of water sports.

For a more relaxed turn of pace the beaches of south Devon are within a 30 minute drive.

About the location


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.
