The property

A unique thatched property.

Thurlestone Village 2.1 miles South Milton Beach 1.7 miles.

You and your partner can retreat to the romantic, self contained, 17th century thatched Linhay in the heart of peaceful South Milton village.

Recently refurbished but retaining all its charm and character, The Linhay is a cosy yet stylish, private space to relax and reconnect.

Before you enter the bright and airy open plan living area, you can park in the designated parking space set in tranquil, well kept gardens.

Enjoy the peaceful gardens on an evening on the patio and on a clear night, do a spot of stargazing. Or, simply, cuddle up on the comfy sofa together and watch your favourite movie on the Smart TV.

Before retiring to bed, head into the walk in shower to wash away the day’s adventures, then retire to the kingsize bed made up with beautiful bamboo linen.

Recharge your batteries so you are ready to take on another exciting day of exploring Devon.

You may want to stretch your legs with a stroll to South Milton Sands, where you can bathe, try your hand at watersports, or wait for the breathtaking sunsets over Thurlestone Rock, while enjoying a beachfront supper at the Beachhouse café.

Wildlife enthusiasts will delight at the Wetlands Reserve nearby, while those seeking a more challenging walk can embark on a scenic hike along the renowned South West Coast Path for some of the best sights and scenery in the region.

At the nearby village of Thurlestone you will find the welcoming pub The Village Inn and a well-stocked convenience store.

Indulge in a proper Devon cream tea at the family run Thurlestone Hotel.

Continue onto Hope Cove, where you can tuck-in to fresh seafood at the Lobster Pod Bistro, indulge in hearty pub fayre at the Hope & Anchor or enjoy live music at The Cove.

Make the drive over to Salcombe, where you can enjoy the delights of the Winking Prawn amongst the many eateries offering local delicacies.

Be sure to visit Salcombe Distillery where you can enjoy a tour, take part in a Gin School or sample the award-winning gin.

Further afield, you will find Bigbury-on-Sea, home to its own beautiful beach and surfing school, as well as the iconic Burgh Island hosting the Pilchard Inn.
