Linhay, The,Dartmouth Information

The Byre and The Linhay are adjoining barns set in the delightful grounds of Higher Ash Farm (and owner's nearby farmhouse), just two miles from the famous naval town of Dartmouth, and a 10 minute drive along the coast road to Blackpool Sands beach. The farm (with cows, sheep and chickens) produces a wide range of fruit and vegetables for sale when in season to guests, and fresh eggs are available most of the year.

The Linhay

A very large and tastefully presented barn conversion with lovely views across neighbouring gardens, orchard and rolling fields. The barn has been fully refurbished in recent years yet retains many original features including cross beams and exposed stone walls, and is ideally suited to two couples or extended families with younger children looking for a quieter location within easy reach of Dartmouth and the surrounding area. 

Whilst The Linhay and adjoining barn, The Byre are individual properties with private access and accommodation they also offer opportunities for two families seeking adjacent properties of an equivalent, high standard.

LOCATION The barn is the larger one of a pair in the grounds of Higher Ash Farm just two miles from the famous naval town of Dartmouth.  The barns (and adjacent owner's farmhouse) sit within 50 acres of delightful grounds including extensive areas of lawned garden, well-stocked orchard and working farmland (with cows, sheep and chickens) - N.B.
