We have had to take the difficult decision to close the Linhay and the Wool Studio. We are hopeful that in future years we might be able to welcome guests once again.


The Linhay is your own tranquil little thatched hideaway, perfect for a romantic weekend in the country. It sits away from the main cottage and is a private, quiet space overlooking a little orchard of plum and apple trees. Originally built over 300 years ago as a grain store/barn, we’ve renovated it but tried to keep its quirky features and character, including the beautiful original oak flooring

We are so pleased that over the years the Linhay has won numerous accolades and great reviews. Sawdays has listed the Linhay as a “Special Place” and we were delighted that it was featured by the Daily Telegraph in 2017 as one of the "10 Coolest British B&Bs". In February 2018 it was reviewed in Devon Life magazine and described as “a unique and charming spot which lingers in the memory".

We have become increasingly interested in, and committed to, sustainability, and the importance of provenance. In recognition of shared priorities and energies, we are delighted to have gone into partnership with Not in the Guidebooks, and henceforth The Linhay is now exclusively available for weekend retreats via their website.
We offer three different long weekends, running from a Friday to a Monday over the summer months. Each weekend provides full board, and invites you to immerse yourself in ‘provenance’, ‘wool’ or simple tranquillity.
