A beautiful place in a beautiful area! With it’s closeness to both the north and the south coast, it’s perfectly situated if you want to explore Devon. We stayed at the Linhay (the biggest of the 3 properties at Smithincott Barton Farm) with two bedrooms, and couldn’t have been happier! Every room has very high standards, and you can also see that the owners love interior design. Added to that, the garden is just amazing! The hosts couldn’t have been more helpful and caring - we will definitely go back!
