Welcome to The Linhay

The perfect setting.

Intro reel the linhay images beams listed

The Linhay is an architect designed, thatched barn with a beautiful green oak frame and modern interior. This Grade II listed property combines the charm of a thatched cottage with the luxuries of 5 star accommodation. The Linhay provides excellent access for visitors to the Jurassic Coast, being only 5 minutes from the sea at Budleigh Salterton and 10 minutes from Exmouth. See our out & about page for more information.

As you enter the property you will appreciate the spacious, contemporary kitchen - diner, which is the heart of the home. There is also a good sized separate sitting room which is well equipped for entertainment and relaxation, and it has a remote-controlled fire for those chilly evenings. Upstairs there is a spacious master bedroom with en-suite shower room, a twin bedroom and further luxury family bathroom. There is a comfortable sofa bed in the separate sitting room enabling two more visitors to stay, if required. This allows a maximum of six to stay at the Linhay, plus a baby in the travel cot. The barn benefits from under-floor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs. We will consider a well-behaved dog at £15 per stay. And we now have broadband installed.

Outside is a private garden with table and chairs, a perfect setting for alfresco summer dining and for children to play safely.

Holidaying with children. The barn is equipped with all the essentials needed for holidaying with young children, including:

  • Stairgate
  • Highchair
  • Travel cot
  • Plastic bowls, plates and cutlery and some toys!

No smoking is permitted in the Linhay or the garden. If you wish to smoke please go outside the gate into the parking area. Since The Linhay is a thatched propery we kindly ask you to be extra careful.

Linhay Update

6/10/09. Whilst browsing the web for features on The Linhay we stumbled upon this article from The Times Online, 20 March 2004

Thatched cottages don’t come any newer than The Linhay. Built last year, it has a traditional green oak frame (still cracking and twisting as it dries), with an interior that’s suffused with oak beams, so it almost resembles a tree house.

Downstairs, the kitchen-diner, flagged with Cornish slate, is well equipped...The living room, which continues the light blue theme, is comfy with sofas and books.

One of the delights of Linhay is the abundance of natural light from the large windows, ensuring that the cottage is cosy, not poky. Upstairs a mezzanine gallery links the double and twin room (both en suite)..

Off street parking is private.

A complimentary basket of West Country foods is provided. The village shop and the local, the Rolle Arms, are only footsteps away. The seaside towns of Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are also close by.
