Linhay approximately 20 metres west of Widhayes Farmhouse. Mid 17th century. Local stone rubble; corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch. 11-bay open-fronted linhay on a roughly north-south axis facing onto the farm courtyard to east. The crossbeams carrying the tallet/hayloft floor are tusk-tenoned into full height front posts standing on stone pads, (Alcock's linhay Type Tl). The oak beams and posts are chamfered with scroll stops. The posts have a kind of hammer beam arrangement to carry the outer principals of the A-frame truss roof with pegged lap-jointed collars. Roof is hipped each end. The high quality finish of this linhay distinguishes it from most other contemporary
linhays in Devon. It also forms a group with Widhayes Farmhouse and the other farmbuildings here. Date listed 5th April 1966.
