This gorgeous single storey barn conversion has been renovated and refurbished throughout creating a beautiful base from which to enjoy your luxury holiday in Cornwall.  The Linhay is located in the quiet rural hamlet of Engollan on the north Cornish coast just a few miles from Porthcothan Bay and Padstow.  The Linhay boasts a garden hot tub, an essential for any holiday home.

The Property

This light filled barn conversion has been flawlessly renovated and refurbished throughout.  The spacious and stylish open plan kitchen, breakfast room, dining room and sitting room offer a truly relaxing ambiance suited perfectly for couples and larger groups alike.  The well appointed country kitchen is a tempting space to get creative, enjoy some of Cornwall's finest ingredients for a local feast.  The far end of this wonderful space is the sitting room with inglenook fireplace and traditional wood burner with comfy seating, perfect for that post beach walk cup of tea.  The exposed beams and beautiful French country furniture combine stylishly with modern media and kitchen essentials.  The bedrooms are simply wonderful and worthy of any boutique hotel, think oversized marshmallow duvets and the finest white linen.  No less indulgent the bathrooms offer a perfect pamper.

What more can one say, The Linhay was perfect for our family holiday.

French doors lead from the living area to a very large and secure walled garden.  The garden is completely enclosed, secure and no doubt a welcome relief for families with young children.  The garden is a real sun trap and there are a number of designated seating areas so you can follow the sun all day long.  There is a paved area adjacent to the barn with a large table and enough chairs for all.  Start the holiday in style with a soak in the hot tub.  The Linhay will suit couples and families that seek the quietness of a rural hamlet yet still desire excellent accessibility to the picturesque north Cornish coast.  The golden sandy beaches at Mawgan Porth, Porthcothan, Constantine Bay, Boobys Bay, Harlyn and Trevone are all extremely close by.  Newquay Airport is conveniently close by, just a short drive away.

We had a fantastic week at the Linhay. It was extremely well equipped and beautifully furnished especially the painted chests of drawers and armoires. It had a lovely feel, and we felt it was our 'home' for the week. The hot tub was great too.

This was our 2nd stay at the Linhay, so that probably says it all that we chose to come back again. Equally enjoyable, 2nd time round. We especially enjoyed the hot tub!

Excellent property, very suitable for one of our number who has a physical disability. We had a super weekend - The Linhay was a great place to stay for our party of 4 couples aged 65+. Warm, comfortable and spacious. None of us had ever been in a hot tub before, and we just loved it!
