The Red Linhay is a secluded cosy cottage on Hollacombe Farm in Exmoor National Park. With easy access close to the coast, outstanding walking on the farm, moors and woodlands and a stream bordered garden with waterfall BBQ log burner (free logs). Bring your own horse for fabulous Exmoor riding..

There has been a farm at Hollacombe since Anglo-Saxon times. The accommodation here is in the traditional "linhay" which were originally built as cattle accommodation, but is now a very well-appointed 2 bedroom cottage with full CH and a wood-burning stove. Logs supplied free.

Downstairs through the front door is a porch and cloakroom with WC and wash-basin, and a door into a large open-plan lounge and kitchen/dining area. The kitchen is very well-equipped with eye level double electric oven with grill and a gas hob, washing machine, dishwasher and ample work tops and cupboards. You can also enjoy our own spring water "on-tap". The lounge has a TV and DVD player, and free WIFI. There are fabulous all round views with access outside through 2 sets of attractive arched french doors.

Upstairs, the are 2 bedrooms, one double and one with 2 single beds all with electric blankets. Each has its own en-suite shower, WC and wash-basin. We supply all bedding and towels. Also available for your use is a travel cot/bed cot, highchair and baby bath.

Outside there is a BBQ, picnic table, bird feeders, swings and a slide for the children.

We also offer you the opportunity for you to bring your own horse for some amazing riding on Exmoor. DIY Stabling and / or grazing is available on site. You can ride on the farm, or moorland, woodland and coastal riding is within easy reach. We can take you to a drop off point and meet you later to bring you back again and / or escort you on a ride if you wish.

Up to two dogs are welcome. We respectfully ask that dogs do not go into bedrooms or on the furniture and they are not left alone in the cottage.

Diverse flora and fauna can be found in abundance at Hollacombe by walking the farm valley fields. Red Deer can sometimes be seen from the cottage along with badgers and foxes. It is believed that a polecat has been seen and 9 varieties of bats have been recorded at Hollacombe including the Lesser & Greater Horseshoe bats. Exmoor National Park is now an International Dark Sky Reserve. Experience the thrill of dark skies full of stars at Hollacombe.

The Red Linhay is environmental friendly having solar panels, a ground source heat pump and wood from our hedging for the woodburner.

Just 4 miles from the coast at Combe Martin, we are only a short distance from the surfing at Woolacombe and Croyde. We are also ideally placed for those wanting to explore Exmoor and North Devon.
