As the name suggests this property is a former Linhay which has been lovingly converted to a high standard and provides a comfortable and well-equipped holiday home, with oak beams, slate floors and under floor heating throughout. Set in an elevated position within the grounds of the owners working farm, visitors can enjoy lovely countryside walks straight from the front door. The large glass windows to the front of the property offer the most amazing views over Portmore Golf course and rolling countryside beyond. The open plan design ensures you can even enjoy them whilst cooking dinner or watching the TV. A gravelled driveway to the rear gives level access to the barn and the entrance leads directly into the open plan kitchen/living/dining room. The living area has two comfortable sofas and doors which open out into the enclosed garden with paved patio area and table and chairs ideal for alfresco dining. The hallway leads to the modern bathroom with shower over bath and two spacious bedrooms, King with countryside views and a twin bedded room. Outside in the parking area a storage unit houses a washing machine, tumble dryer and room for storing bikes etc. The Cart Linhay is a countryside retreat, yet within a few minutes drive of the historic market town of Barnstaple, offering a choice of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.

Beautiful barn conversion in a great location with amazing views. Set in a peaceful location but with easy access to Barnstaple and surrounding areas/beaches. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay perfect and even provided a welcome cream tea on arrival. Warm and cosy, plenty of storage, lovely bedding and towels, spotlessly clean. We had a wonderful week away and found it so hard to leave. Thank you

Mrs C,

A perfect base to explore North Devon. A beautiful barn conversion, with stunning views and easy access to main roads. Charming hosts who left a much appreciated cream tea and a welcome pack, for our arrival. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back and have already recommended the Cart Linhay as a perfect place to stay in North Devon. Many thanks to all concerned.

Mrs D,

Very comfortable high spec accommodation. A working farm setting but very quiet. The views are wonderful! Handy for the Tarka Trail.

Mrs W,

This is a beautifully renovated property set in a glorious location with far reaching views. Our hosts made us feel so welcome during our stay, and provided a lovely cream tea on arrival. The property is comfortable, warm and has everything you might need for a holiday stay. We can certainly give this the highest of ratings, and hope to return back ourselves in 2022.

Rev B,

Beautiful barn conversion located on a working farm. Lovely welcome pack of scones, jam and cream on our arrival. Great location, 10 minutes from Barnstaple and about 20 minutes from fabulous beaches. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Mrs M,

We absolutely loved our stay at the Cart Linhay. The Barn is really clean and well appointed, the owners lovely and friendly and the location and views superb. We can't wait to visit again.

Mrs B,

The property had everything we needed and was in a stunning location. The owners who live next door on a working farm.were very friendly and took time out to come over and find out if everything was okay. We will definitely be back at some point in the future. We only had 4 nights (covid restrictions) but would quite happily have stayed for 4 weeks it was so relaxing.

Mr W,
