Smithincott Barton FarmThe Linhay

Sleeps 4 + 2

The Linhay is a large two bedroom Grade II listed cottage attached to the main Smithincott Barton farmhouse. Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Devon countryside and on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, the location is peaceful and quiet, yet only 5 mins from the M5 and the North Devon link road. Exmoor, Dartmoor and the South coast are all within a half hour drive, making this an ideal base to explore the area.

The Linhay can be booked together with the Loft and the Old Stable. Perfect for family get-togethers or groups of friends.



The Linhay, which originally dates from the 17th century, would have once been an open sided barn, hence the name. We believe it was converted to living accommodation in the early Victorian era. It consists of a large lounge with conservatory,  spacious kitchen/diner, two double bedrooms, and a large shower room. It is spacious and comfortable, and equipped to a high standard. We have furnished and decorated it with antiques, vintage signs and contemporary art works.

One of the bedrooms has an adjacent room which has a double futon, and there is also a utility room with washing machine and downstairs loo.

There is a large garden with seating area which is accessible via the conservatory.

Babies and toddlers are welcome and we can provide a travel cot, baby bath and high chair. We also welcome up to 2 dogs.
