About The owner
A former teacher and educational manager for many years in a large Devon comprehensive school, in the final years of my career I decided to make a real leap of faith and work for the Royal Navy, training young Naval officers at the historic Britannia Royal College in nearby Dartmouth.
The owner purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why The owner chose Kingsbridge
As it was too far to commute daily from my home town in Tavistock, Devon I purchased the Linney and my daily commute was the road from Charleton via Torcross to Dartmouth. Do please follow my route if you stay at The Linney, as the views are awesome... even better on the double decker bus which passes hourly through the village of Charleton on most days!
What makes this Cottage unique
A cosy, compact place to stay, which will enable you to enjoy some village life, some excellent neighbours, and above all the rich delights of all the South Hams has to offer.....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Linney. Graham had left lots of information about the cottage and the area, and some very welcomed edible treats! The cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. When we did need to contact Graham during our stay, he was very helpful. The booking and checking in/out process was very straight forward. We would love to stay at the Linney again.
Thank you Helen for posting this excellent 5 star review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Linney. Do come again!
Cosy comfortable cottage
We stayed over the Christmas holidays and Graham (owner) was incredibly helpful and responsive with our last minute booking, especially given the time of year. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable and welcoming, with even a fire ready to light in the wood burning stove and local goodies in a hamper. All the facilities are there for a 'home from home' stay and we had a couple of cosy evenings by the fire watching the HD telly. The cottage is well situated for walks and visits to the beach, as well as bird watching and shopping in Kingsbridge. Thanks to Graham for a great stay. Highly recommended.
Thanks Barbara for this lovely review. So glad you enjoyed Christmas at The Linney! Best Regards Graham
Absolutely stunning little place
We arrived very late on the evening of arrival. In wntering the cottage it was like home from home. The owner Grahsm even left us a little hamper of local produce. Very clean and it had everything you needed. The beds were teally comfortable and as a whole it was a stunning beautiful cottage. We shall be back.
I am so glad you enjoyed your short stay and please come again! Graham
First class accommodation
First class accommodation, a perfect base for a couple or small family to visit the South Devon area, the Linney is a very comfortable cosy small cottage that exceeded our expectations, spotlessly clean and well maintained, Graham the owner was very helpful with all aspects of our visit. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the linney.
Thank you Paul both for this excellent review and for the first class way you left the Linney so clean and tidy. I am glad you both enjoyed your stay and do come again! Graham
Lovely little cottage in West Charleton
The Linney had everything we needed for our 3 week stay in West Charleton. Clean, comfortable and well equipped, with great communication from Graham (the owner). It's close to Kingsbridge with it's township facilities, and in easy reach of the lovely Slapton Sands & Torcross Beach. We'd love to stay again on our next visit to the UK. Thank you Graham.
Thanks Jo for this lovely review - so glad you enjoyed your stay all the way from New Zealand! Graham
Clean,tidy and comfortable with good selection of entertainment and all necessary accessories.
Great for two or 3 people. Bedrooms little small if access/mobility an issue. Road can be a little busy at time especially if 'staying in'. No outside space to sit. Several nice spots to visit quite close by. Number of good places to eat fairly close by.
The South West conjures up sunny vistas of glorious beaches, green rolling hills, sparkling seascapes and dramatic emerald estuaries. All these and more are waiting for you in the area of South Devon known as the South Hams. Richly agricultural and unspoilt, this area has its own particularly mild and sunny microclimate.
West Charleton is situated less than two miles outside Kingsbridge, an attractive South Hams market town, with an array of shops and supermarkets, and of cafes and pubs for eating. The Linney is on the coastal road to Torcross and historic Dartmouth. It is also on a direct hourly bus route between Dartmouth and Plymouth on weekdays and Saturdays. The coastal villages of Torcross and Beesands are also just a short drive away and here you can access the magnificent South Devon Coast Path, from which you can access some glorious unspoilt and secluded beaches. The upmarket delights of Gara Rock and Salcombe are within easy reach too. The locality is rich in bird and wildlife, all types of flora and fauna, and there is even a local village bird hive which guests may use overlooking the Kingsbridge estuary. With plenty of idyllic local walks available from the front door, there is hardly any need to explore any further!
