    “I clicked "Met Expectations" because we expect excellence from Sykes properties and that is exactly what we got.”

    We understand the owner has taken the property away from Sykes now and have to say, Sykes and their customers are the losers. The cottage is brilliant and Steve is a super, friendly host. We will definitely return so, unfortunately, if he puts the Linhay with another company, we will probably book through them. Sad.

The property

This detached barn conversion rests alongside the owner's home, in a lovely, quiet area surrounded by the open moorlands and deep river valleys of Dartmoor National Park.

The Dartmoor Linhay occupies a peaceful spot overlooking green fields and Pew Tor, with footpaths onto the moors just 300 metres away.

Bring your family and friends together and enjoy this wonderful location, with everything you could possibly need for a week-long stay.

Inside, you will find the living room benefiting leafy views across the garden and a lovely dining space, at which you can come together for home-made meals prepared in the compact yet fully equipped kitchen.

There is a range cooker on display adding character to the room, with a handy shower room next door, ideal for coming in from a muddy walk and freshening up.

Follow the carpeted stairs to the first floor and find two well-appointed bedrooms; a master double rests under the eaves, with a Velux window streaming in the natural light and patio doors onto a balcony, ready to start your day with your morning coffee and picturesque, rural views.

The twin bedroom offers zip/link beds for flexible sleeping arrangements, bedside tables with reading lambs and a pleasant outlook from the window.

Your very own garden to the rear bathes in the evening sun, with a picnic bench resting under one of the apple trees, enjoying uninterrupted vistas over verdant hills towards Pew Tor in the distance.

Enjoy relaxed alfresco-dining among the peace and quiet as the sun begins to set, with something scrumptious cooked up from the barbecue, washed down with a glass of your favourite tipple.

The property is sitting on the national cycle route 27 perfect for a lovely relaxed cycle taking in the beautiful scenery.

Being close to the village of Horrabridge, you have a selection of amenities to hand, including a traditional pub near the pretty river, where you can grab a pint and a bite to eat.

You are also within easy drive of Tavistock, with its pannier market and independent shops, whilst the bustling city of Plymouth has galleries, its Barbican quayside and the National Marine Aquarium.

Choose this fabulous retreat for a memorable holiday with your loved ones.
