In a quiet, yet very convenient location, about a 12 minute drive from the famous Cornish fishing village of Port Isaac, this lovely barn conversion has a great south facing garden which looks out over open fields towards the nearby village of St Teath. The local pub, the White Hart is renowned for food and atmosphere and a great reason to stay at The Linhay!

The Linhay is in a quiet location a short distance outside the village of St Teath, just off the Atlantic Highway in north Cornwall. It is a lovely 2 bedroom barn conversion, constructed from local stone and set out entirely over the ground floor. It is set within a lovely south facing garden with plenty of room for children's games. The sitting room is very comfortable with a big leather sofa and chairs and benefits from the cosy wood burning stove keeping everything toasty in the cooler winter months. There are french windows opening onto the gravelled south facing patio area. The kitchen is in traditional style and fully fitted. The Linhay also benefits from both a shower room en suite to the master bedroom and a family bathroom with large corner bath.
St Teath is such a convenient location for exploring the spectacular north Cornish coast. Besides the delightful Port Isaac, you have the great surfing beach at Polzeath or the fabulous windsurfing & kitesurfing at Daymer Bay. The coastal footpath all along this section of coast is just breathtaking and could occupy you for an entire week alone if so desired! Boscastle and Tintagel are within 20 minutes and both are fascinating places to visit. Padstow, the culinary capital of Cornwall, made famous by Rick Stein is half an hour away and there you can rent a bicycle and explore the beautiful Camel Trail along the estuary to Wadebridge and beyond. Why not take the little ferry from Rock across the Camel Estuary to Padstow as an added bonus?!
Ground Floor Only: Sitting room (two sofas, not as pictured), dining room and fully fitted kitchen. Master double bedroom with 4'6" bed and en suite shower room followed by a twin room and separate family bathroom.

Only 6.5 miles away and approximately 10 minutes by car is Port Isaac, tucked away on the North Coast between Padstow and Boscastle. The village has recently been home to the television series 'Doc Martin' with Martin Clunes and both the original and latest series of Poldark were also filmed around the area. Much of the village is 18th and 19th century and a wonderful place to explore. Port Isaac is a maze of narrow lanes and pathways known as "drangs" with only one through road and traffic is discouraged. As with many places in Cornwall, Port Isaac once relied heavily on fishing and fish processing, yet these days the village now caters for many visitors with plenty of shops and eateries. Fish may also be bought from the local fish merchants in the fish cellars by the harbour. There are also the usual art and craft shops.
12 miles south is Bodmin, the former county town of Cornwall for many years and the only Cornish town to be recorded in the Domesday Book, which was lodged in the town's prison during the First World War. The county prison is now a museum and open to the public. It was the first prison in the country to have separate cells. The oldest part of the town is made up of mainly granite buildings clustered around the Bodmin Beacon. The Beacon is a 144 feet tall obelisk in memory of Sir Walter Raleigh Gilbert. The area around the Beacon which has woodland and traditional hay meadow was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1994.
Nearby Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwalls Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwalls highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.
Padstow is a charming fishing village at the head of the Camel Estuary. It has some lovely sandy beaches and at least 7 bays within 5 minutes drive. It is the start or end point of The Camel Trail depending on your point of view. The 17-mile trail is flat and runs between Padstow & Wenford Bridge along the disused and resurfaced railway line. Bikes are available for hire. Padstow, now famous for being home to Rick Steins The Seafood Restaurant, amongst other properties the celebrity chef owns in the town.
From Padstow you could take a boat trip across the Camel Estuary to Rock, and lounge on the beautiful beach that stretches all the way around to Daymer Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery neighbours Rick Stein's empire in Padstow. It is also a good base for exploring the South West Coastal Footpath, which covers its rugged coastline, and from which beautiful coves and spectacular views are worth seeing. Various water sports, fishing and golf are all on your doorstep.
Boscastle situated on rugged North Coast of Cornwall, has an incredibly picturesque tiny natural port. Once a thriving port, at the base of a ravine, serving North Cornwall, the village now survives on its tourism industry. The disastrous floods of 2004, unfortunately damaged some historic properties, but Boscastle is most definitely up and running again now. The Witchcraft Museum re-opened in 2005, houses an extensive collection of related artefacts including a Dutch collection donated to the museum in 2000. There are many gift shops and cafe's in the village, as well as a pottery, with amazing coastal walks and views to each side of the valley. On the north side of the harbour at Penally Point is a natural blow hole, which at low tides with enough swell sends plumes of water high into the air. There is a fabulous 7 mile walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven is extremely popular, although it is quite a testing length of coastline. Many sites of interest surround Boscastle with lots to explore. Nearby Tintagel and a ruined castle heralds myths of King Arthur, with Camelford rumoured to be Camelot of old.
Guest from Lancaster stayed for 7 nights.
The Linhay is just lovely. Well equipped, very clean and well maintained. The cream tea, fruit and basic items were a thoughtful touch and much appreciated. Great base for exploring North Cornwall. Can't fault a thing.
Guest from Paisley stayed for 11 nights.
We really enjoyed staying at the Linhay. The pictures on the website should be updated as they dont do it justice. The cottage has everything you need for an excellent self catering holiday and the garden is perfect for sitting out and watching the wildlife. It was so peaceful and the location was great for exploring Cornwall.
Guest from Rochdale stayed for 4 nights.
The Linhay is a lovely property- clean, comfortable and very well equipped- and located perfectly for the North Cornwall coast. Very comfortable, and the garden is lovely.

Guest from Worcester stayed for 7 nights.
A fantastic and well presented cottage with everything you could possibly need during your stay . We had a great time and the cottage was perfectly placed to use as a base to take in many of the beautiful sights of Cornwall . I would highly recommend this to anyone and the added bonus was a nice local pub which was within walking distance .
Guest from High Wycombe stayed for 7 nights.
We really enjoyed our stay at Linhay. On arrival, we found milk, fruit and a cream tea had been left for us which was welcoming and thoughtful. The cottage is comfortable and had all the equipment we needed to enjoy our stay (including a slow cooker - very useful!). It is near many beautiful locations such as Tintagel Castle, Padstow and lobely coastal walks as well as being close to ,any excellent surfing beaches (which suited our son in law). All in all we had a great time - many thanks to the owners.
Guest from Chessington stayed for 7 nights.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Linhay, everything was provided in very comfortable cottage, fantastic views from the patio across rolling countryside. Its a good base for visiting all of Cornwall and if you get good weather its lovely to sit outside on a warm evening or a short 12 minute stroll to the local pub.
Guest from Bungendore stayed for 6 nights.
It was a pleasure staying at The Linhay. It was a good location to base ourselves to explore Cornwall. So comfortable and relaxing to come home to each day. Excellent customer service, we felt very welcome. Would love to come back one day!
Guest from Newport Pagnell stayed for 7 nights.
Comfortable stay in a warm, well equipped cottage. Owner friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough for us to sit out in the garden to enjoy the views but there was enough furniture out there to let us if we wanted to. Good views and friendly bovine neighbours. This is our second visit and we would return if we return to the area.
Guest from Shoreham-by-sea stayed for 7 nights.
Easy to find, lovely location, clean and tidy. Great holiday, would recommend staying at the Linhay.
Guest from Basingstoke stayed for 7 nights.
Back for a second year and not dissapointed. Cream teas on arrival, which were delicious, was the first change we had noticed the second change was the addition of Wi-FI, which kept the kids happy while the grown-ups could relax in the beautiful surroundings.
Guest from Durham stayed for 7 nights.
Comfort, location and beautiful garden area. Very well appointed and equipped. Would recommend. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Guest from Portsmouth stayed for 7 nights.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Linhay from start to finish. Lovely cottage in peaceful rustic surroundings. We like to establish a home from home in all our favourite holiday locations. We have our favoured cottages in Snowdonia, The Peak District and the Lake District. Now we have one for North Cornwall. Thanks for a lovely stay Paul and Jeanette. We would love to come back.
Guest from Wellingborough stayed for 7 nights.
Clean, comfortable, well equipped cottage. The garden is large and at the moment has a nice view over the fields, which maybe lost when the hedge has grown. The owners have thought of nice little extras for a welcome. I would certainly book this cottage again.
Guest from Bognor Regis stayed for 7 nights.
Excellent barn conversion, well furnished and comfortable with plenty of outside space. Good location with easy access to Port Isaac, Boscastle and Padstow and, importantly, not situated up an inaccessible track but off a decent road although with little traffic. Good WiFi and mobile signal.
Guest from Isle Of Cumbrae stayed for 10 nights.
The Linhay is a lovely cottage, which is well equipped and has comfortable furnishings. It is set in quiet countryside and enjoys far reaching views, with lots of birdsong, and with friendly cattle in fields adjoining the cottage garden. We could happily have stayed much longer - a real home from home.
Guest from Chalfont St. Giles stayed for 7 nights.
The cottage was even better than the photos indicated. It was spotlessly clean and ideal location for our walks. When I needed advice from the Housekeeper he was very helpful. Perfect
Guest from Bristol stayed for 7 nights.
The Lynhay made the most perfect holiday for us. Everything you need was on hand. Excellent accommondation clean and comfortable. We will certainly return again. Thank you so much. Glenda & Brian Holden. PS. When we arrived we had company in the lynhay. A baby bat had made himself very comfortable in the lounge.
Guest from Upminster stayed for 7 nights.
Ideal tranquil location with stunning views, nice pub and grocery store within easy walking distance. Comfortable cottage, well maintained and initial supply of fresh fruit and milk a nice touch A well kitted out cottage but a very minor observation, little more storage space for own food etc. in the kitchen would have been helpful
Guest from Basingtoke stayed for 7 nights.
A perfect family holiday cottage with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. Places like Rock, Daymer Bay and Polzeath are only a short drive away and Wadebridge only taking 20 minutes for all your shopping needs. A very quiet location which is fully enclosed so children are safe to run around, the property has generous sized rooms and the open plan living/dining is perfect. We were lucky and could get in early and would definately stay there again.
Guest from Portsmouth stayed for 7 nights.
This cottage was a brilliant find for the value, because we had excellent views (and friendly cows) and local location for coastal walks. The cottage was superb for a family of three it was clean, spacious and cosy. Yes we would book The Linhay again, to us we had a brilliant holiday.
Guest from Batley stayed for 7 nights.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Linhay. It was the perfect location for touring around north Cornwall and not too far for a day trip to south Cornwall. It was in a beautiful country setting with plenty of space and privacy from the other properties on the plot. We enjoyed the animals who visited or were our neighbours. The standard of the property was high compared to others we looked at in the area. The flowers, milk and fruit were a lovely welcome. I loved the place mats! (couldn't find any to buy to take home) The feedback I would add is that the en suite shower room was a bit of a squeeze - a toilet and sink would be better and put the shower over the bath in the main bathroom. The en suite tended to get foisty quickly. The Quilt was a bit old and a winter weight - some summer weight ones would have been better. We managed using the patchwork quilt with a sheet, but we were worried as it is such a beautiful quilt. Also a larger bed would have been nice as the room is big enough to take one. Wifi would have been useful to plan our days - luckily we had 4G but not everyone will have that. We personally would have preferred a washing machine to a dishwasher.
Guest from Alfreton stayed for 7 nights.
The property was excellent, clean and tidy. The amenities from the television to the dominoes, everything was catered for. Little touches like the fruit and flowers showed that people cared that we would enjoy our stay, and enjoy we did. One thing you could do to make things perfect is to make the sun shine more, and I'm sure if you could do that you would.
Guest from Southampton stayed for 7 nights.
Very good value for money cottage offering excellent views of the surrounding countryside. It was very well equipped and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Guest from Luton stayed for 7 nights.
This accommodation is beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped, a real home from home. We had visits each day from pheasants, and young bullocks watching us over the fence. We highly recommend this barn conversion.
Thank you you kind email and comments. We are so pleased you had a nice holiday!
Guest from Bridgend stayed for 7 nights.

The Cottage was fabulous. St Teath including the Butchers and Pub were fantastic and other places in Cornwall were all perfect! Thank you, we all had a fantastic time and loved every single minute of our week :)
We are so pleased that you had a lovely holiday. Thank you for reviewing us.
Guest from Exeter stayed for 7 nights.
An absolutely gorgeous place to stay in Cornwall. Log burner, views of fields and cows and a great village pub down the road. Felt comfy from the moment we walked through the door. Staying somewhere like this, you can make your holiday as tiring or peaceful as you like. Just fab.
Thank you for your generous comments and pleased you enjoyed. Alas only for holidays for us also! Maybe one day ...
Guest from Hedge End stayed for 7 nights.
Had a great holiday, the cottage and location were perfect, hope to see you again. There was 4 off U.S. and we all thought it was home from home. We would definitely recommend it
We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and that everything was good for you. Actually the credit must go to our wonderful housekeepers Trevor and Anne who always work so hard.
Guest from Maidstone stayed for 7 nights.
A beautiful clean and airy cottage in a fantastic location for exploring all of the delights of North Cornwall. The cottage is equipped with everything that you would need for a wonderful relaxed holiday - a real 'home from home'. The flowers and fruit on arrival and beautiful soft towels were an absolute bonus!! Booking was straightforward, and contact details of both the local housekeeper and the owners before the stay, ensured total confidence in my booking. We had a wonderful week in our favourite part of the country.
Just so delighted everything was fine for you and that you had a great week! Thank you for your comments.
Guest from Southampton stayed for 7 nights.
A warm welcome awaits you when you enter The Linhay with flowers and fruit. The owners want to make your stay as pleasant as they can by providing everything that you could want from a stay in Cornwall rain or shine. Everything was spotless and very inviting. Would have no hesitation staying again or recommending to others. Location perfect, tiny quiet village with a great pub, well stocked local shop and within a 2 minute drive to the A39 which takes you north or south through the county.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your generous comments.
Guest from Hereford stayed for 6 nights.
Like home from home. A very comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Easy walk to the local shop and pub, and a short drive to numerous local beaches. The only thing that would be useful would be to have access to Wifi. Other than that we couldn't fault it.
Thank you for taking the time to leave kind comments which we do for sure appreciate. We are hoping Super Fast Cornwall broadband will be available outside the village reaching The Linhay soon, when we will be able to reconsider laying cable up the lane. Free wi-fi is available in the local pub. Pleased you had a good stay!
Guest from Sheffield stayed for 7 nights.
Lovely, quiet location. Cottage very clean, full of high spec linen every utensil you could require. Lots of cleaning products which you would normally have to bring youself. Nice touch when we arrived to a vase of flowers, bowl of fruit and some milk, very welcoming. The only downside for us was the settee which was leather material and would have served better with a throw but this is a personal preference and does not detract from the cosy feel of the cottage. The garden was lovely to sit in and we had a friendly pheasant who came to see us every day. We would definitely stay there again.
Thank you for your kind comments, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. This is a new venture for us and thoughts on improvement are welcome, so we will look to get some throws for the sofa that people may use.
