The food is second to none. Lynne and Pete are the perfect hosts and make everyone welcome which is undoubtedly their gifting. The amazing gardens surrounding the large bungalow are a... More

Yet another great stay at the longhouse with Pete & Lynne as always nothing was to much trouble and there attention to detail is second to none. A better place might be out there but I'm not sure where. FIVE STARS are not enough. Thank you Pete & Lynne for your wonderful home and warm welcome

Our second visit to The Longhouse was just like visiting old friends with tea and cake on arrival and a chat with Pete and Lynne. They make you feel so welcome and at home. As we have said before the rooms are immaculate with everything you could wish for and breakfast is, as always, perfect. The Longhouse is without doubt... More

The property is elevated above Sidmouth and the view down to the sea was just amazing. I spent many hours sat out just... More

We'd read the reviews & couldn't quite believe it was going to be that perfect but it was! Home-made scones with jam & cream on arrival & a chat to the lovely Pete & Lynne before being shown to our room. Everything clean & top quality. As vegetarians we often get 2nd rate cooked breakfasts but not at The Longhouse... More

I found the Longhouse while looking for somewhere to stay for a four day break in Sidmouth. The reviews about this B&B were brilliant so we were quite excited about our stay. I have to say that we were not disappointed. We stayed in the garden room which was in itself lovely, but we had a huge decked area all... More
