Linhays, a quintessential thatched Devon cottage, tucked on the side of a hill with views down to the sea at Start Bay, is absolutely charming. Pretty as a picture with a delightful very private garden the cottage is full of character, surprisingly spacious and provides a really welcoming, home-from-home, comfortable and attractive spot from which to explore this stunning area. North Hallsands' shingle beach is a ten minute walk and from here the South West coastal path begs to be explored with fabulous walks along rugged cliffs that dip into sandy coves offering some of the best scenery in the UK.
Stable door into most attractive kitchen/diner with dining table to seat 6. The fitted kitchen area is very well equipped and has an electric hob, built-under oven, larder fridge and dishwasher. (A utility room in the studio in the garden has an extra fridge, freezer, larder fridge, washing machine and tumble dryer.) Steps up from the kitchen to a lovely room with large picture window overlooking the garden and the views, two chairs and door to the garden. Downstairs shower room with electric shower, WC and basin. Spacious sitting room with an open fireplace inset with a flame effect fire and comfortably furnished with sofas and chairs, TV/DVD player and stereo. Steep stairs from the kitchen/diner to the landing. Double bedroom with 5ft bed and dual aspect windows. Roomy twin room (3ft beds) with fitted cupboard and basin. Children's room with full size 3ft bunk beds. Steps down to bathroom with bath, hand-held shower attachment, basin, WC and heated towel rail.
The pretty gardens are arranged on three terraces, with lawns and a profusion of plants with winding paths and steps down to the parking area and the lane (the garden is not suitable for todlers). The studio garden room, tucked in a corner, houses garden furniture and a separate utility room. The cottage is alongside a very quiet country lane.
