The Linhay is a tasteful, luxury barn conversion (rated 4 star luxury by English Country Cottages) located in the middle of a beautiful, 250 year old, secluded, traditional Cornish farm within its own 150 acres. It is approached by a quarter of a mile of stunning private drive which sweeps between fields of horses. The farm has a wealth of treasures to explore; from bluebell woods to granite and slate ruins, from streams & valleys to spectacular hills with views over Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor (film location of "Warhorse"). This ancient farm lies within a 15 minutes drive of spectacular golden sand beaches, lakes and rivers for fishing, swimming and kayaking. Also close-by are acres of moorland where prehistoric monuments and tors can be explored. Modern amenities also abound; from the theatre, cinemas, restaurants and nightlife of Plymouth, to the local music pub scene or the many facilities on offer at St. Mellion International Golf & Country Club and Spa. Bring your horse on holiday with you? Invite some friends to a recording session? How about the kids camping out in our fields for a night or two?
