Welcome to Linhay Cottage in Withypool, a charming converted farm building which was once the stable groom's quarters. The property overlooks the fenced yard and guests can enjoy plenty of scenic walks in the surrounding area. Small families are welcome and the cottage is also dog friendly by prior arrangement.
The spacious lounge/ kitchen has a wood burner stove in the corner, two sofas, Freeview TV and a DVD player. There is also a dining table seating three plus a well equipped kitchen area with integrated fridge, dishwasher, oven, ceramic hob, microwave and other small appliances.
The comfortable double bedroom is furnished with a king size bed and there is a further single bedroom. Both bedrooms have built in wardrobes, chests of drawers and views over the fields and Barle Valley. The bathroom has an overhead shower, WC and hand basin. A hair dryer is provided for your convenience.
The outdoor area is enclosed but not fenced. Parking for two to three cars is also provided and outdoor seating is available in a sunny, sheltered spot.
A 'woodland walk' can be found just down the lane from the cottage which leads to the bottom field then onto the footpath to Withypool and Landacre Bridge.
The rental price includes bed linen, house towels, heating, electric and Wi-Fi service. The property also has oil fired central heating and we provide a basket of logs, matches and kindling for the fire.

The property is set in the Barle Valley, close to the River Barle, Two Moors Way, Withypool Common and Withypool Hill which is home to a bronze age stone circle. Two miles upstream is Landacre Bridge which is a five arch medieval structure ideal for padding and picnics in good weather.
Other local attractions include the Royal Oak Inn which has links to authors such as RD Blackmore (Lorna Doone) and artists including Alfred Mannings. The inn was owned in the 1930's by Gwladys and Maxwell Knight, a spy ring leader and radio broadcaster who was the inspiration for Ian Fleming's 'M' in the James Bond franchise.
