An absolutely fantastic property.
Mrs Rock
September 2015
By far the best property we have ever rented, extremely large comfortable property accommodating 4 generations of a family plus a golden retriever with ease. Facilities all added to sense of sheer luxury as did every bedroom being en-suite.

The Linhay was superb accommodation with 4 double bedrooms with en-suites. It was all furnished to a high standard, with plenty of room for 8 people and a dog. The position was good for exploring Minehead and nearby Exmoor. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone.

The cottage was lovely. Lovely garden area and plenty of space inside the cottage. Loved the master bedroom, fantastic views.
Mrs Butterworth
June 2014
We liked that the cottage was spacious, clean and well appointed. That there were TWO televisions, and that the main TV was quite large. That the immediate garden to the cottage was fenced and dog proof. We liked that there was a large enclosed field (with lovely views) adjoining the property where the dogs could play. The cottage is owned by a very friendly family and they had a playful black lab, who was company for our dog. The owner was very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We were very comfortable there.

Plenty of space and seating for a large family. Lovely surroundings, close proximity to lots of places of interest. Wonderful to have en-suites in all bedrooms.
Mrs Boulton

We enjoyed everything about the holiday, the owners were friendly and helpful, the pool was clean and made safe for children they had thought of everything and were the perfect hosts. We have already recommended this property to family and friends and will hopefully be returning ourselves for future holidays.
Mrs Goddard

We loved having the swimming pool and the fields for the dogs next to the cottage. The size of the cottage was great as we all had our own space and the bedrooms/bathrooms were nicely furnished.

The house is fantastic, beautifully converted and plenty of space for us all. Brilliant garden, added bonus of a pool and sauna. A perfect setting to explore the local area and lovely, welcoming owners. Thank you for a great weekend and the sun shined!

We rented The Linhay to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary with family and friends. A party of eight plus the family dog, everyone had a wonderful time. The accommodation was excellent and spacious. Everything needed for entertaining a large group was there, a real home from home.

Mrs Murphy

The owner was on hand but not intrusive and nothing was too much trouble. The area was really good for getting around. We were impressed that WiFi was free, and also that there was a special field for the dogs to run in.
Mrs Hulme

It's a lovely cottage particularly for two families. It was cosy, well equipped and clean. Ideal location for days out, but also great if you want to stay in.
August 2014
We holiday here as the whole family, there was enough space for all of us. Each bedroom had its own bathroom which was great. On arrival there was milk for a cup of tea and there were biscuits also. The accommodation was clean and well kept. The person who met us was pleasant and informed us of all we needed to know. There was also enough car parking for the 3 families. We would holiday here again!

Looking for a property that 12 of my family could stay to celebrate my birthday, we chose the linhay and booked both cottages as both properties had all en suite bedrooms, each had a sauna and shared the heated pool. What can I say, when we arrived we were blown away with how nice the properties were. The very helpful but unobtrusive owner was at hand to let us in and show us around. The main house was very spacious, and the smaller property was sooo luxurious. With large sitting area, games room, kitchen, diner, and two separate entrances, the main building was absolutely ideal. Throw in a patio with barbeque lawn area, it was perfect for having a BBQ and letting the toddlers run around freely. The pool was gated, big, clean and heated. Lots of utensils in the kitchen, with a big hob and a separate utility. Overall were delighted and had a wonderful time. Just beware of the busy road which has no footpath, but don't let this minor issue, which didn't stop us from going for walks, deter you from staying at this wonderful place.

Had a lovely stay - everything you hoped would be there was! The lay out and contents had been well thought out. Owners on site if needed. We would all return. There was a lot to see and do around the area. Not far to the pub but a difficult walk along the main road with young children or those who walk slowly...need to use the back road.

The house is lovely and the bedrooms with ensuites were great as everyone in our party had a lovely room with enough space and privacy. The games room was great and so was the log burner in the sitting room! Also the dining area was great for group meals.

A really beautiful property with lovely owners and nothing was too much trouble, I would definitely go again!
Mr Jennings

The Linhay was comfortable and well equipped. It gave us plenty of room for all of our family, both the young and old. The outside area was a huge bonus for the dog! The owner was friendly and approachable. This was a fabulous place to stay.
