The Linhay is a cosy yet stylish studio annexe which makes an ideal retreat for two. Beautifully furnished it has been converted from an old barn to provide open plan living with the perfect mix of traditional features and modern amenities.
Ideally positioned, The Linhay sits on a nine hundred acre farm estate which affords some of the finest views over the rugged and dramatic Exmoor landscape. An ideal 'bolt hole' for couples looking for a romantic break, but also available for large group bookings of thirteen if booked in conjunction with Emmett's Grange (sleeps eleven guests) which is also located on the estate.
Sitting at twelve hundred and fifty feet, the farm is the highest on Exmoor and nestles in the very heart of the estate. Both The Linhay and Emmett's Grange are equally suitable for letting individually with each sitting at the end of its own private drive, in an ideal setting overlooking fields and moorland.
The Linhay is an ideal place to spend a holiday and is a spectacular and unique paradise for those with an interest in walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding or who want to simply relax amongst wonderful scenery. Guest's have the sole use of the estate during their stay and are free to enjoy the extensive grounds. Why not enjoy a romantic picnic or relax by the stream and read a book. Don't forget to look out for the Red Deer that can often be spotted grazing on the moorland and surrounding area which is a haven for many rare native bird species. Hunting, fishing, shooting and falconry can also be arranged and stabling is available should you wish to bring your own horse.
For those who can tear themselves away from the estate, the wider area of West Somerset and North Devon has plenty of attractions to offer. From beautiful sandy beaches at Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton to rugged cliff top walks at Lynmouth and Lynton. Alternatively explore the historic market towns of Dulverton and South Molton along with the miles and miles of wild unrivalled moorland that the National Park has to offer.
With so much to offer on the doorstep, this is an exceptional holiday retreat in a wonderful Exmoor setting.
