The large glass windows to the front of the property offer the most amazing views over Portmore Golf course and rolling countryside beyond.

The property was spotlessly clean and very comfortable and welcoming. It had a lovely view and we relaxed immediately upon arrival. We are planning to return for another holiday.

Mrs Teresa M,

Everything we needed for a relaxing country break. Ideally located for visiting North Devon beauty spots.

Mr Peter M,

The cottage was perfect for our needs it was very convenient for shopping in Barnstaple with several supermarkets etc. The location made it very easy to visit the North Devon coast and North Cornwall. We visit Devon quite regularly and Marsdens will always be my first choice to search for cottages as we have always found good quality cottages.

Anne L,

The Cart Linhay is a beautifully finished property with everything you could need. Ideal for a family. The owner is so warm and welcoming and left freshly baked scones, jam, cream and tea bags etc. Small personal touches like the basket of cosy blankets, a disposable barbecue and marshmallows make this property stand out from the crowd. Would return tomorrow if we could!

Mrs Cathryn A,

Excellent property. Stunning views. Spotless. Everything you need is there.
