Holiday home One mile from Roche and four miles from St Austell nestles this delightful holiday home. The Linney has been created in a Grade II listed 19th Century China clay drying kiln and offers well equipped characterful accommodation with exposed timbers, part wood floors and other understated reminders of the buildings "china clay" heritage. The Linney is one of five holiday homes in this superbly renovated building, and provides guests with a spacious sitting room with doors to the patio and courtyard, swings for the children, and its own stream that runs past the back of the building. This fascinating part of Cornwall offers gorgeous beaches, charming fishing villages and the wonderful Eden Project close by.
Area The little village of Roche is only six miles from Bodmin and easily accessible by the A30, making it a fantastic holiday location for anyone looking to explore the wider area of Cornwall. With its selection of shops and pubs, this quaint settlement is primarily involved in agriculture leaving a picturesque patchwork of lush, gently undulating fields. Just a thirty minute drive away is the ruggedly beautiful north Cornish coast, with rocky caves, high cliffs and excellent surfing beaches. Newquay, with its new Fistral Beach surf centre, is also nearby, along with the fishing village of Padstow. With its narrow, winding streets, charming harbour and renowned restaurants, this small town certainly merits a visit. The spectacular Eden project is also close by, with biomes full of tropical plants.
Region Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.
The location is excellent for exploring Cornwall. The accommodation was excellent, very clean and the owners were lovely.
It is a lovely quiet peaceful area to stay in, we have been there three times this year, and have enjoyed all three stays.
This is our second stay at Carbis Wharf - first at Riverside then at The Linney, and it never disappoints. It is a beautiful place to stay, it is centrally positioned to travel to many attractions and places of interest, but far enough away to enjoy the countryside. We were very lucky again this year with the weather, sitting out on the terrace until dark. My only grumble would be that I didn't book for a two week stay!
The Linney was a very spacious and comfortable property to be in, a shame to come home! Great location and the surroundings were superb. We will definitely be returning very soon.
Lovely, clean and spacious cottage located in the centre of Cornwall. Easy to travel to the North and South and close to the A30 as well. Highly recommended!
The location of the property was very good for visiting beaches on both coasts, as well as many tourist attractions. Accommodation was extremely spacious compared to other properties we have been to.
The place was spacious and well maintained. The staff were very helpful and very cheerful. The location was well situated for the whole of Cornwall.

The Linney is a very good place to start exploring Cornwall. The owners are very friendly and the service with towels and bed linen was excellent.
Centrally located for nearby attractions.
I thought the property was in a good location. Good spacious accommodation.
The house was nice with loads of space for us to enjoy ourselves and be comfortable. The staff at reception were helpful when we had a question. We were able to just relax without being disturbed by anything.
The weather wasn't great but the accommodation was 5 Star and made what could have been an average holiday into an excellent holiday. Many thanks!
Very friendly owners. A good setting. Conveniently placed for seeing much of Cornwall.
A great place to stay for the week, really nice homely feel in a perfect location. Staff very friendly and welcoming. One place we were very sad to be leaving at the end of our holiday, will be back!
A very spacious well thought out accommodation. Would use again. Good position for touring.
Property was generally very well-appointed - can hardly think of anything that wasn't provided - location also was great for exploring north & south coastlines - still only an hour drive away from places like St Ives and Porthcurno - parking very convenient and spacious for MPV in front of property - even had swings & slide for kids which went down well - massive living-room area downstairs which the kids also loved - only small issue I had was with hitting my head a few times on the sloping ceilings in the bedrooms - best way for this place to be improved though I think is with some sort of wi-fi connection - almost getting to the point where people expect it in B&B's or hotels now so why not also cottages? Would really have been useful to have planned the week a little more with online forecasts and info on places to visit - if it had the wi-fi I'd probably rate it excellent overall.
