Viewtown Linhay is a hidden gem offering a walker's paradise for you and your hound. Situated in the Tamar Valley bordering the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the outskirts of the village of Harrowbarrow and sited on a working flower nursery offering a peaceful and tranquil setting surrounded by wildlife, beautiful woodlands and rolling countryside. The local Post Office and shop offers a great selection of everyday provisions and you are sure to be greeted with a welcoming smile, good humour and local knowledge. Owing to the perfect location you also have the option of both Devon and Cornwall to explore if you wish to venture further afield.
Viewtown Linhay is only a 30 minute walk away from Cotehele, a wonderful National Trust property that also sits on the route of many other walks in the local area. The estuary will be a memory that will last forever as river watching can see a few hours slip by. Not to be forgotten is Pentillie Castle and Estate and the wonderful Halton Quay. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to planning your holiday, there are simply countless glorious walks to enjoy no matter the season.
Viewtown Linhay is adjoined to the owners' bungalow but is completely separate and is accessed via your own private front door with a well thought out layout offering space throughout. The entrance hall links the front door to the back door where you will find your own private patio with a fitted screen. The gardens are open and free for you to enjoy and you also have your own private walk through the owners' fields which has been clearly marked. An added bonus is that as guests of the owners you have access to a private woodland which is situated yards from your front door.
The main open plan living area is accessed via the entrance hall and has one step up, where you will find the kitchen, dining, living and bedroom areas. The layout offers space and a top-quality finish which will be clear to see with added extras such as the coffee machine and Bluetooth speaker. The bathroom is situated by the bed area and offers a wonderful room with a larger than average walk-in shower, heated towel rail and many other little extras.
Babies up to two years old are welcome and a travel cot and highchair are provided.
Please note that there is a doorway that links to the owners' bungalow but this is locked with a soundproof curtain fitted to give you even more privacy and seclusion.
Nearby Tavistock, an ancient stannary market town which holds World Heritage Site status, is just a 20 minute drive. From independent traders to a weekly pannier market this town offers a day out with the bonus of retail therapy and a historic twist.
Cross the Tamar and majestic Dartmoor with its rugged landscapes and dramatic granite tors is waiting to be discovered, or visit the maritime city of Plymouth to stroll around the historic Barbican and Plymouth Hoe.
The golf courses at St Mellion and China Fleet Club are well worth a putt and of course when in Cornwall a trip to the seaside is a must whether it's strolling along the beaches of Downderry and Seaton, riding the Atlantic rollers at Widemouth Bay or simply savouring some good old fish and chips in Looe.
