  • "Property was lovely and we had a warm welcome from the owner."

    Property was clean and tidy, guidance from owner informative. Further from the village than first thought, you do need a car for this property unfortunately my husband was taken ill and due to the location and the fact our son dropped us off and needed the car for the week it was unfortunate as my husband’s condition usually ends up in a hospital stay so we felt the right decision was to go home. Next time we will make sure we are mobile.

  • "We had a lovely stay at The Linhay."

    The property has been well looked after. It has everything you need for your stay. The hot tub is a perfect addition. The owners are very friendly. We received a lovely cream tea when we arrived.

  • "When we arrived, our first view was of two large derelict barns, and this was our view from bedroom two."

    The beds were terribly unclean, all eight pillows were heavy soiled, the bed quilt was also soiled as was the mattress protector, the mattress also was heavily stained… Briony did respond to our text message, replacing 4 pillows with new, this was late afternoon, by then we had washed and dried, the bed quilt, mattress protector and the two pillows … The bed framework had split away from the bed leg and gave way Wednesday night, we moved into the two single beds for the remainder of the night… we decided to leave the property Thursday, as the disruption of a bed changeover would be two much for us. We did text Briony regarding the bed collapsing and she did respond in the afternoon, by that time, we was on our way home.. Your description of the property doesn’t match what we saw, the photograph of some of the views did not exist. We would appreciate a refund of three days, because of losing a day washing, and two days not sleeping there. Ps. Your company did not inform us of the 300 yards approach to the property. The poorly maintained road, singletrack, not good! This is the first time we feel let down by yourselves, hence the low, scoring of 5. It is this particular property, we could not recommend.

    I am sad to receive this feedback as we have always had excellent reviews, particularly with respect to cleanliness. Subsequent guests have gone out of their way to tell me that they completely disagree with this assessment of The Linhay. I have no idea how the bed became damaged and broken, but did provide the refund for the lost days (despite being advised that it wasn't necessary to do so). I believe that it is common practice with management companies to include a few photographs of the general area and the views from the property itself are truly lovely; I feel blessed to live here and I am sorry that you couldn't appreciate them yourselves. I do wonder whether, if potholes in the council roads and barns in the farmyard are negative points, a break on any Devon farm is the right choice in the future. Best regards, Briony. Property Owner

  • "The lodge was absolutely perfect, clean and very well equipped."

    Briony (the owner) was lovely and very helpful. The only draw back for us was the location. Not only is there the listed single track road to acces the farm but there is also miles of winding narrow county roads with very few passing spots to get to Tiverton. Yet saying that if your happy to not go out much then its perfect.

  • "The linhay was a wonderful place to stay."

    Very modern and clean and generally a lovely environment. The host was great as she was available but not intrusive. It is very remote which is lovely for the peace and quiet and the clear starry nights. Unless you’re going out for a walk then you do have to get in the car to go anywhere but we didn’t mind this. We would definitely stay here again.

The property

Tiverton 3.9 miles.

Escape to the stillness and tranquility of the Devonshire countryside with a stay at The Linhay, a contemporary, detached barn conversion within the grounds of the owner's farm, in Cadeleigh near Tiverton.

Accessed via long winding country lanes followed by a single track road, this luxury property is the perfect base for a couple, small family or group wanting to discover the heart of Mid Devon's picturesque countryside.

A few steps up onto the porch provides a perfect place to leave any boots or coats, before heading inside the property to discover a warming ambiance, thanks to underfloor heating throughout.

Head into the bright and contemporary open-plan living area, with a spacious kitchen painted in a stunning purple, complemented by sleek grey units, comprising all the appliances and modern conveniences you could possibly need to cook delicious meals, which can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar or around the dining table, as well as additional utility room housing a washing machine for your convenience.

The sitting room has an inviting L-shaped sofa placed in front of a Smart TV, ideal for cosying up and enjoying a movie night together, and the large French doors open up from the living area onto a large terrace, which offers incredible views of rolling countryside, as well as a seating area with a slate table available for portable barbecue's (please bring your own) waiting to be taken advantage of, while days can be ended in style with the luxury of your own private hot tub.

When it's time to catch up on some rest, retreat to one of two welcoming bedrooms, comprising a double and twin, each with their own modern en-suite shower room, so there won't be any queues for the bathroom in the mornings.

When you can tear yourself away from this truly idyllic setting, explore your rural surroundings by heading into the village of Cadeleigh, just over two miles away, where you will discover a gastropub serving wonderful food, while the town of Tiverton offers a more extensive selection of shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants.

Enjoy pretty riverside walks beside the River Exe, which runs right through the town, visit Tiverton Castle, a fortified manor house displaying English Civil war artefacts, head to Tiverton Museum Of Mid Devon Life to learn more about the local history of the area, enjoy a horse-drawn barge trip along the canal and stroll through the nature reserve that rests close by.

Cyclists can embark upon an eight-mile journey along the canal towards the Somerset border, while avid walkers will be in their element discovering the magnificent rolling hills and moorland of Exmoor National Park.

Spend the afternoon playing golf at Tiverton's golf club, sample locally brewed ciders at Aston Manor Brewery and discover the National Trust's Knightshayes Court, a Victorian mansion set within gardens and offering extensive woodland walks.

The ancient cathedral city of Exeter can be accessed within half an hour's drive, while slightly further afield is the magnificent north Devon coast, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, home to multiple picturesque beaches and stunning coastal walking opportunities.

The Linhay is a true slice of paradise in the idyllic rolling countryside of Mid Devon.

About the location


Crediton 12 miles; Exeter 14 miles; Taunton 21 miles.

The largest town in Mid Devon, visit Tiverton for echoes of the past including a romantic castle, and horse-drawn barge trips on the idyllic Grand Western Canal. Occupying a strategic position on two rivers, the Exe and the Lowman, brought Tiverton wealth as a flourishing textile town, resulting in many fine buildings. These include the Jacobean Great House of St. George, three medieval almshouses, and the fantastic parish church of St. Peter with its remarkable frieze of merchant vessels with billowing sails. Another famous building is Old Blundells, immortalised by former pupil R.D. Blackmore in his classic Lorna Doone. However, the town's most famous building is beautiful Tiverton Castle, a royal fortress commissioned in 1106 by Henry I. Find out more about Tiverton's rich heritage at award-winning Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, with 14 galleries of exhibits including the Tivvy Bumper GWR locomotive.
