A very warm welcome awaits you at the Red Linhay, Hollacombe Farm near Blackmoor Gate on the western fringes of Exmoor! It is a unique location giving the ideal opportunity to explore, relax and enjoy both the intimacy and the ruggedness of Exmoor landscape.

Hidden away yet easily accessible, Hollacombe Farm is a 90 acre all grass Exmoor hill farm, with streams and a river abound, areas of woodland grazed by wild Red deer and wonderful old pasture with butterflies in abundance, stunning walks from the door across the farm. Nearby you can walk across the moor, or through dramatic ancient bluebell wooded valleys all the way to the stunning coastline of North Devon.

The secluded Red Linhay has been beautifully restored and converted, using a combination of traditional and modern materials. The result is a spacious, well appointed, comfortable warm home, with double-glazing throughout and central heating in every room. And for those who really like the warmth we have a modern log-burning stove and a free supply of logs. Outside there is ample parking and a large, grassed garden front and back, a stream and waterfall to the front, a children’s play area and a barbecue and picnic table.

We offer a delightful two-bedroom cottage (one double, one twin, both with ensuite shower rooms) sleeping up to 4 plus a cot for couples, families, or individuals. Downstairs through the front door is a porch and cloakroom with WC and washbasin, and a door into a large open-plan lounge and kitchen/dining area with access outside through 2 sets of attractive arched French doors. The kitchen is very well-equipped with eye level double electric oven with grill and a gas hob, dishwasher, washing machine and has 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 Wi-Fi.

You are welcome to bring your own horse for some amazing riding on Exmoor. DIY Stabling and / or grazing is available on site. Moorland, woodland and coastal riding is nearby – 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.

The Red Linhay has stunning views, seclusion, walks from the door, award winning beaches, dog friendly (up to 2 well behaved dogs are permitted), great pubs nearby – the perfect break!
