The Linhaye

Steeped in history and romance, this pretty stone barn conversion is ideally located on the picturesque fringes of Doc Martin country.

The Linhaye, a self-catering holiday home near Port Isaac, North Cornwall


The Linhaye is set deep within the Cornish countryside close to one of Cornwall’s most sought-after coastal villages, Port Isaac. Backing onto miles of rolling green fields, the property’s rural charm will enchant walkers, Doc Martin fans and lovebirds looking for a romantic hideaway.

The Linhaye is nestled in the sleepy hamlet of Trefreock. Once part of a large estate, Trefreock and Trefreock Manor are frequently talked about in the Cornish history books and have been home to many well-known Cornish families over the years. This granite barn conversion combines traditional features and stylish modern touches inside.

Slate flagstones sit beneath high vaulted ceilings in the kitchen and living areas. Gaze out across lush green fields that melt into the sea in the distance. In the morning, enjoy a relaxed holiday breakfast around the modern white dining table before heading out over the stile and on to the footpath for your countryside adventure. The welcoming log burner in the living room provides a cosy atmosphere to return home to.

The Linhaye’s two spacious en-suite bedrooms offer sweet dreams all round. The master bedroom is softly carpeted with fresh white walls and punchy yellow accents. A second bedroom is stylishly finished with green and blue tones and beautiful wooden furniture. After a day walking the coast paths, come home and relax with a bubble bath in the large en suite.

Through the French doors from the living room you’ll discover a delightfully sheltered courtyard. This suntrap provides the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing evening drink or a spot of al fresco dining. A Secret Garden-style stone wall rises up to the back of the space, providing shelter from the sea breeze, and a beautifully planted flowerbed stretches out in the other direction. The courtyard backs onto a charming Elizabethan walled garden belonging to the owner who is happy for guests to make use of and enjoy.
