Just over a mile from the North Devon coast, surrounded by lush green countryside with views stretching out as far as the sea, Linhay cottage is one of 5 beautifully converted stone barns on the Hartland Peninsula. A get away destination for families or friends where time relaxing and enjoying a lazy break or pulling on walking boots and exploring is the order of the day. There is no hustle and bustle of a busy resort here, just peace and tranquility and a chance to unwind and spend quality time with family and friends.
A really great choice for families with young children - the cottage is located on a small holding where children can meet all the animals on the farm including ponies, ducks, geese, pigs, sheep, ducks and chickens. and meet new friends who are also staying on the farm. A large enclosed play field equipped with picnic bench and climbing frame allows time outside to run free whilst parents relax.
Great for couples - stroll along country lanes, treat yourselves to cream teas and tasty meals out and sample some good local ale and when you arrive back to unwind, take a dip in the jacuzzi pool or book a relaxing spa session to massage away any left over stresses from daily life.
This stylishly converted former linhay is arranged on one level with easy access. A patio area to the front of the building with seating and barbeque is perfect for summer alfresco dining . The open plan living area has clearly defined areas for cooking and dining and a traditional potbelly stove creating an inviting cosy atmosphere on colder evenings.

The West Country region
There is so much on offer for anyone looking to take a holiday in Devon. It is truly a beautiful and diverse county with sweeping moorland, wooded valleys to dramatic coastline, long sandy beaches, hidden inlets and traditional seaside towns and villages. Famous for its traditionally mild climate although 2010 saw snowfall in areas that exceed the Alps.
The county is also proud of its locally grown produce where green lush fields and crystal clear seas produce some of the very best food the UK has to offer. ??For those who enjoy home cooking most of this is available through farmers markets and local village shops. For those who would rather leave it to the professionals, you will be tempted by an outstanding variety of fantastic restaurants from fine dining through a traditional Devon cream tea! So my advise is come and experience the lure of this glorious county - the scenery is spectacular and the food mouth-watering, delicious and if you are lucky the sun will shine and you will indeed have found the holiday of your dreams!
Visit Hartland Quay – a former important harbour and port on this stretch of coast, now home to the Ship Wreck museum, an excellent pub and some fantastic fishing. The village of Hartland is slightly inland, enjoying a more sheltered position. Within the village you will find village shops stocking general provisions, craft shops, galleries, tea rooms, pubs, a health spa – even its own Brewery!

The pretty village of Clovelly is just 5 miles west and famous for its donkeys that were once used to carry goods up the steep hills from the village and now give visitors a helping hand with their bags and shopping.
This area of Devon is famous for its beautiful beaches ideal for surfing, bathing and watersports in general. The Coastline is also rich with secluded coves, Harland particularly has a great selection of smaller beaches and for those seeking a great expanse, Westward Ho! is but a short drive. Peppercombe beach is dog friendly all year round and the lovely walk to the beach leads though a peaceful wooded valley.
Bucks Mill is a rocky secluded cove, popular with fishing but access is limited. The beach is mainly rock and pebbles but is dog friendly all year round. Clovelly also has a small pebbled beach in the centre of the harbour. The beach has no dog restrictions and families have the benefits of all the facilities of the village. Hartland Quay is popular for fishing, mainly shingle and pebbles, dogs are not allowed on the beach from 1st April to the 1st October.
There are some great family attractions in the Harland area. Children will love The Milky Way Adventure Park in Nroth Clovelly with a selection of all weather rides and activities for all chiildren including a rollercoaster and indoor play area.
Food and Drink
Locally produced food and drink is never difficult to find in Devon. There are always farmers markets and farm shops in most towns and villages, where you can enjoy locally produced meat, vegetables, cakes and preserves. In Hartland try Hartland Farm & Tea Shop in the village or Barton Farm Shop in South Stroxworthy near Woolsery.
For eating out there is a great variety close by - The Hart in Hartland is a popular bistro style pub, serves excellent food and has a Michelin Star; The Kings Arms, Hartland offers some real hearty good home cooking and the The Wreckers, Hartland Quay also serves good pub food; Hoops Inn, Horns Cross is a restaurant and pub serving good food; The Bush Inn, Morwenstow and restaurant and pub serving good food; and if all you are looking for is a quick take away The Square Chippy – good fish and chips to take-away.retty village of Clovelly is just 5 miles
