The Cart Linhay description

Holiday home
The Cart Linhay is a neat single storey cottage on a 130 acre working farm two miles from the historic Devon town of Bideford. The cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms, a double and a twin, with a family bathroom. On the same level is a sitting room with a dining area and a kitchen. Outside, shared with three other cottages, is an outdoor pool for seasonal use with a paddling pool, a sunbathing terrace, an orchard and a picnic area. The cottage has its own enclosed garden with lawn and furniture. Two miles from the town amenities, The Cart Linhay is a special cottage for a memorable Devon break.

Straddling the Torridge estuary, the quaint bustling town of Bideford boasts a medieval bridge, town quay, quaint pannier market and vibrant shopping area - all well worth a visit. For the more active, several major surfing beaches, golf courses, theme parks and other attractions are nearby and the South West coast path passes close by on its way into Cornwall.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

This is our second stay at Cart Linhay, and we were pleased to find it in a similar condition to as we left it, that is excellent..

This is a lovely place.. Simple and unfussy but perfect for up-to 4 people who would like to be somewhere in the South West that has great access to main roads but is also be quiet and properly rural. A quiet country lane and yet a large Tescos not 1 mile away - very convenient. All facilities were present and well kept - the kitchen was well equipped, we enjoyed some of the DVDs, the bathroom was smart and clean and the pool warmed and cared for. Farmer Hill is a friendly farmer (as is Mrs. Hill), which isn't always a farmer attribute. Visitors should be aware this is an operating farm, with sheep and sheep emissions - but it really wasn't that intrusive. The main room is pet-friendly so if you're not a fan of other peoples dog's smell on chairs perhaps pack your Febreeze. There's no bed like your own bed, but it wasn't so bad really. Thank you Mrs. & Farmer Hill. Enjoy your time in Devon!

We love this place, it has everything we need, the people are lovely and nothing is too much trouble.. We have stayed here before so it met expectations but if it was the first time it would’ve exceeded expectations!

This cottage is great for those looking for a rural retreat but with good access to amenities (Tesco circa 10 minute drive) and beaches (Westwood Ho! circa 15 mins drive). The farm is a working farm with sheep (and lambs when we visited), ducks and chickens, which adds to the appeal. The cottage is simply laid out but well equipped and the enclosed garden a real bonus for the dog (or small children). You're free to roam the farm fields which made for some lovely evening walks with great views across the valley. Richard and his wife are on site should you need any help - they're super friendly and welcoming, but also give you space to enjoy your break. We didn't use the pool but I could imagine this being fab fun in the summer. Overall this cottage ticked all our boxes and we would definitely return.

The Cart Linhay is very comfortable and well equipped.. The Hill family are very friendly and Richard too time on our arrival to show us the accommodation and how everything worked. The photos on the web site are accurate. We were very lucky with the weather, had it been wet I would worry about the beige carpet. We had a lovely time.

Richard was warm and welcoming and showed us around the property on arrival, explaining everything that we needed to know, before leaving us to it.. The cottage was lovely and clean and we were welcomed with delicious homemade cupcakes. The garden was perfect for our small children and dog, as there was enough room for them to run around but it was secure so that none could escape! The owners have stocked the cottage really well so that there was never a time that we needed anything that wasn't available. Beds were all super comfy and we all slept very well. The cottage is close to local amenities and a short distance from loads of great days out and attractions. A super little place that we hope to return to in the future.
