  • "An excellent experience."

    We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary, and it was a marvellous choice. Fun was had in the quality games room, and it was perfect for dogs. We hired a chef and waitress who found the facilities perfect. We were also very lucky by having seven days of excellent weather.

  • "Very clean apart dead flies around the window in the twin room of the annexe."

    We had to pay £30 to rebook the letting because of covid which we thought was unfair.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are glad to hear the apartment was very clean for your arrival. We can only apologise that there were flies in the twin room, we have since sent a contractor to see if this is an issue that needs addressing. We do hope that you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed all the area has to offer. Property Owner

  • "Great property in a beautiful location which suited us very well."

    Lovely views and throughly enjoyed our stay even though weather wasn't great. Loved the games and using the Aga was a definite bonus. Only detrimental comment is that there were no serving spoons and not many serving dishes considering the property sleeps 16.

    Many thanks for your feedback. We are thrilled you had a great stay at Linham barn. We have passed all your comments onto the owner. We do hope we can welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Great location."

    Facilities were top notch! Beautifully presented house with a fabulous garden. No negatives would just suggest more outside seating, a bbq and maybe a tv in the conservatory or kitchen. Annex is a superb place as well as is the games room. Would definitely go again.

  • "Sykes are an excellent company to deal with, easy to contact and quick responses / resolutions."

    This property was brilliant and in a great location near to numerous beaches and walks, especially as it is often difficult to get somewhere for a large group. We were 4 geverations of family and the accommodation had plenty of space, it was light, airy, modern and very comfortable. The kitchen was excellent with sufficient space and facilities for cooking for a big group. The garden was amazing with so much space and the games room rounded off a wonderful place. The only improvement would have been a BBQ as one was not provided and better/ more outdoor furniture; we were surprised with such am amazing outdoor space that the best wasn't made of it, only a few old wooden outdoor chairs and table and no BBQ or outdoor cooking facilities. We would definitely recommend this place, we will be back!

  • "The house was absolutely brilliant."

    A lovely stylish house, with lots of space, a big garden, very clean, and a lovely games room. The best holiday home we've visited in the area! Would definitely recommend and return.

  • "The property was beautiful and would have been perfect but the only downside was that there were a lot of steps inside the main house ground floor and the toilet was a little walk with steps away from a very small ground floor."

    The reason we chose the barn with a ground floor room was for my elderly grandad who is unsteady on his feet so this wasn’t ideal for him however other than that everyone else absolutely loved the place, the decor and facilities were brilliant (no downstairs shower or bath though). All was beautifully presented with lots of helpful items inc fully equipped kitchen and lots of toys and books for the children to play with. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Kingsbridge is home to a range of lovely independent shops and coffee shops, as well as a 3-screen cinema and an award-winning pub. During the summer season there are estuary excursions by ferry to Salcombe which lies on the banks of the Kingsbridge Estuary, making it one of the prettiest towns in South Devon. Salcombe is famous for its outstanding coastal views, rolling countryside, and is a watersports paradise for kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding and powerboating. It is packed with boutique shops, high street brands and independent producers, restaurants serving freshly caught seafood, and Salcombe Gin and Ice cream! Kingsbridge is perfectly located as a base to enjoy the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast.
