Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The Linhay is set in a tranquil oak tree clad valley ½ a mile from the centre of the award winning village of St Tudy 'twixt the magnificent North Cornwall coast and the wild beauty of Bodmin Moor. It is ideal for those interested in walking, cycling, natural history, gardens and for those who seek peace and tranquility.
The Linhay was a derelict open-fronted cattle shed in the corner of the 2/3 of an acre plot surrounding the Oaks Barn – a former Duchy field barn, originally part of the farm of Tinten Manor which is reputed to be the birthplace of Captain William Bligh of the Bounty. The Barn is now the owner's home. Much use has been made of the original vertical slate slabs, and granite pillars. The door, windows and floor to the living room are made of English oak. The self-catering accommodation is spacious and luxuriously equipped for two.
Fitted to a 5 star standard, the Linhay is centrally heated with a large open plan living-room and also a log fire to cheer you up on those occasional chilly evenings. There is a wide-screen colour T.V. (with Freeview), DVD, radio and CD player and pay phone. A collection of reference books, local maps, tourist information, beautiful books on Cornwall are there for guests to enjoy. The fully equipped kitchen area has an electric cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, automatic washer/dryer and dish washer. From the main window is a spectacular view of the garden with a large pond and stream that encourages much wildlife. Shower room with state of the art digitally controlled shower, Villeroy and Boch W.C. and hand basin, and heated towel rail. The bedroom has a King-size bed and duvet, radiator and views over the garden.
