Just returned from our second visit to the Longhouse. Another excellent stay. Everything is perfect, no one could ask for more. Lynne and Peter are the best hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The garden room is superb with its own patio and seating area. The room is spotlessly clean and the breakfast, well fabulous (especially Lynne's omelettes). Thank... More

Don't hesitate, just book it! We had a really nice stay with Peter and Lynne in their Cyclamen room. Sidmouth an the surroundings are beautiful and even though our days were rainy we liked it a lot. The house, the room, the food and their hospitality-you can not wish for more! Rebecka och Pär
