The Red Linhay

The secluded Red Linhay has been beautifully restored and converted, using a combination of traditional and modern materials. The result is a spacious, comfortable and warm home, with double-glazing throughout and central heating in every room. And for those who really like the warmth we have a modern log-burning stove and a free supply of logs. Outside there is ample parking and a large grassed garden front and back, a stream and waterfall nearby, a children’s play area and a barbecue and picnic table.

Our open-plan lounge, dining and kitchenarea

On the ground-floor there is a porch and separate cloakroom with its own WC and wash-basin. The open plan living area has a three piece suite, TV, DVD player and a wi-fi internet connection. The kitchen and dining area is large and well laid out, benefiting from the usual array of modern appliances and high-chair if required. You can also enjoy our own spring water “on tap”.

The Wood-Burner is a very popular feature

There are French doors at both ends of the living area to enjoy the outside / al-fresco experience and intergate with nature!

The bedrooms have wonderful views across the Exmoor countryside

The bedrooms, one double, one twin, each have their own ensuite shower, wash-basin and WC. Fitted wardrobes and cupboards in each room provide ample storage space. Both rooms have superb views over the surrounding countryside. Bedding and towels are provided.
