Attractive cosy cottage in a tranquil location, just a short drive from foodie haven Padstow and close to many beautiful beaches.

This attractive quirky cottage, only 2 miles from Padstow, sits in an elevated position, allowing the lucky guests to enjoy far-reaching views of the stunning Cornish countryside. In this rural location, you will appreciate the tranquillity, helping you to relax into your holiday and switch off from life back home.

The interior of The Linhay manages to feel cosy, yet spacious. The cute staircase up to the twin room, the traditional wood burner and the wooden floorboards feel very much like a cottage, but the high ceiling and white-washed beams and the contemporary kitchen and bathroom create a light, open and airy feel. One of the most unique features within this property is the gorgeous, exposed stone-wall in the lounge, a subtle reminder of the natural beauty of the Cornish landscape awaiting you outside.

Padstow (2 miles), is a typical Cornish fishing town complete with picturesque harbour and winding streets, known more recently as a food lover's delight, thanks to its most famous resident, Rick Stein. However, if you'd prefer something less bustling, you are ideally situated to explore plenty of stunning locations along the North Cornwall coast. Enjoy glorious views from Bedruthan Steps (9 miles), Polzeath beach (15 miles) with its golden sand and clear blue sea, and Port Isaac (15 miles), a village full of character and the home of TV's Doc Martin. For those keen to stretch their legs and find more unspoilt spots, why not walk the South West Coast Path and make the most of the remarkable coastline.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely cottage set in a very quiet location. Farm shop next door selling delicious eggs and sausages and theres the touring park up the lane for baked goods (need to order in advance). Easy drive down to Padstow. Was a little disappointed we couldnt walk down to the estuary given how close we were. The second bedroom has very limited head height anRead mored is accessed via a narrow staircase but is fine for children. Overall a very enjoyable stay. Hide

The cottage itself was lovely. My only criticism of it would be the very limited headroom in the second bedroom - really only suitable for children. Access to the surrounding countryside was very restricted and we had to drive to walk our dog. The location is good with a very good beach at Harlyn (dog friendly) and intersting shops at Padstow.

Property was well appointed, looked really nice on the outside and inside, had all we needed for cooking and was in an excellent location. Overall, cottage was excellent - thank you for letting us stay, we had a great time there.

Comfortable, well furnished cottage in a beautiful secluded location. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. The road into Padstow is much too busy to attempt on foot as there are no verges to walk on. There is an overland path but it includes a stone stile which was too much for our elderly dog to get over. However this encouraged us to spend some quiet Read morecosy evenings in the cottage so was not a disadvantage. Hide

Very nice cottage in a lovely peaceful location. Although very close to Padstow its not easy to walk to as a busy road with no pavement. Comfortable bedroom but just lacking a couple of bedside shelves as nowhere to put anything. Lovely big sofas, great tv & kitchen area, was lovely to come back too after a busy day sight seeing.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
