The Linhay is a charming and unique retreat hidden away at the end of a Devon lane yet within a short walk you can be in the heart of Barnstaple where you will find an array of eateries, shops and a theatre. The long sandy beaches of Saunton and Croyde offer the perfect spot for surfing the waves or simply strolling along the sand and are only a short drive away. If you are looking for the perfect mix of a luxury retreat with a superb location then look no further!

After walking up to the front patio door via the decking steps you will find this perfect abode all on one level. The open plan living-room offers an immediate 'wow' moment, with plush leather sofas, a perfectly positioned dining-table and a skilfully crafted, fully equipped kitchen, the living space links seamlessly together. The gorgeous curated objects and fabulous interior styling you will ensure you instantly melt into your surroundings and slip into blissful holiday mode.

The two sleeping havens have super comfy beds, crisp linens and are adorned with plump cushions and gorgeous throws - you will simply drift away each night! The main bedroom also boasts a grand chandelier and has patio doors out onto the decking, the perfect spot for the all-important morning brew. When it comes to the height of luxury the bathroom has not been overlooked; from the quirky toilet to the luxurious double shower cubicle and serene free-standing bath, you could be forgiven for thinking you had walked into a boutique hotel.

Outside you can soak up the sun's rays on the decking or cook up a storm on the barbecue down on the patio. When night falls and the stars come out gather together and enjoy recounting the day's tales whilst enjoying a tipple or two.

Whether arriving with friends or as a family unit, The Linhay will not disappoint - we have a sneaking suspicion that once discovered this luxurious retreat will become a firm favourite and with the discreet owner on site to share tips and knowledge you will hit the ground running.

There is plenty to see and do in this area of north Devon. Hop in the car to discover the glorious north Devon beaches and miles of coastal walks. If you are feeling energetic head out for a walk, cycle along the famous Tarka Trail or explore Exmoor National Park; lace up your walking shoes and discover the beautiful, unspoilt countryside.
