The Linhay is a cosy cottage, all on one level and is situated on the Hartland Peninsula, North Devon. The cottage sleeps four people and has one double bedroom, one twin room and a family bathroom.

With on-site children’s play area and animals to feed, The Linhay is a great choice for a fun-packed family break.
The Linhay - once a farm building – is now a comfortable, characterful, two-bedroom cottage. It’s all on one level with a wood-burning stove in the open-plan living space and outside, an area of the former farmyard with outdoor seating. Guests are welcome to use the picnic/play area (with climbing frame/swing/slide) and views to the sea across fields and the tower of St Nectan’s Church. The spa room with hot tub and sauna can be booked for private sessions. Children can join the owners and help feed the ducks and chickens (often pigs too) in the mornings.
Close to the sea, in the peaceful, protected countryside of the Hartland Peninsula, Cheristow Farm Cottages are six conversions of old stone agricultural building around the former farmyard on the owner’s smallholding. Three of the cottages have views over open countryside to the sea beyond the tower of St Nectan's church; three looks onto the sheltered, shrub and flower-filled yard. All have outside seating areas and are comfortably furnished and decorated to a good standard. The cottages share a large play/picnic area and use of the on-site spa room with hot tub and sauna; four have their own wood-burning stoves and well-behaved dogs are welcome in all but one of the cottages. Hartland, with its monthly farmers' market, small food and craft shops, pubs and café is 5-minutes' drive away, or a 20-minute walk through fields and ancient woodland. One of the most dramatic stretches of the South West Coast Path runs along the cliffs just over a mile away. Hartland Abbey House and its fine Gardens are in the valley just below Cheristow and visitors can stroll through the grounds, where peacocks, donkeys and black sheep roam, to the sea. Hartland Quay is less than 10-minutes' drive away with impressive cliff views and a characterful, child and dog-friendly pub: The Wreckers' Retreat. High-tide swimming off the old quay is great; at low tide there are stretches of sand and rock pools to explore. 6 miles away is the fascinating fishing village of Clovelly, famous for its traditional buildings clinging to the cliffside and its steeply cobbled, traffic-free main street plied by working donkeys. It also has pubs and tea shops, a church and Charles Kingsley museum. Clovelly Court gardens are open to the public too. Seaside Bude is 15-miles south; 15 miles north are the beach at Westward Ho!, and Bideford, for the ferry to Lundy Island. In winter helicopter flights to Lundy leave from Hartland Point, 3 miles away. For children, there are 2 adventure parks within an easy drive: The Milky Way (alongside Wake Park Aqua Park) and The Big Sheep.
