Super accommodation and lovely warm welcome from the owners Pete and Lyn. When we arrived we sat for an hour on the decked patio chatting with our hosts and enjoying tea and cake. Lovely greeting. Scenic and quiet surroundings set high up on the hillside with a fantastic scenic view of Sidmouth Bay and the surrounding countryside. Stayed in the... More

On arrival at the Longhouse, Lynne was there to meet us with tea and cake as we sat out on the terrace and chatted with her. She then showed us to Cyclamen, our room for only one night as we were visiting friends in the area. The room has everything you could want - plenty of hanging space and drawers... More

When you visit the Longhouse it feels like home because you get such a warm welcome. The kettle is put on, cake is offered and Lynne and Pete are so friendly. The accommodation is fabulous this time we opted for the larger room with direct access onto its own outdoor area. The views from the property are stunning and there... More

Having stayed at many B&Bs while doing long distance walks, we can say with confidence that our stay at the Longhouse was definitely one of the best. All our criteria for an excellent B&B were met. Pete & Lynne were warm, friendly and helpful and totally relaxed and unhurried in their welcome and dealings with us. We relaxed in their... More

From the moment you step through the front door, you are welcomed like an old friend. Within 5 minutes of stepping inside, we had a cup of tea and were sitting around the kitchen table having an informal chat. Both Pete and Lynne are fantastic hosts - we have never stayed in a place where we were made to feel... More

Just returned from our third stay at The Longhouse, it is more like visiting old friends then going to a bed and breakfast. We were greeted with a cream tea served on the decking and a lovely chat with Lynne and Pete, they are the best hosts you could ever wish to meet. As always, The Longhouse is so comfortable... More

On arrival we were greeted with breathtaking views. Lynne and Pete were very welcoming. Beautifully appointed bedrooms with an amazing selection of teas, coffees and very naughty biscuits! We enjoyed a very relaxed and unrushed breakfast cooked to perfection. After breakfast each day we did the National Trust walk which has spectacular views of Sidmouth and Sid Bay. This was... More

Beautiful property, great location and really lovely bedrooms; sparkling clean and well equipped. The breakfast was the best I've ever had (sorry mum) but best of all are the two hosts - Lynne and Pete. Pete dropped us into town, sorted a route to cycle the next day and even prepped our bikes for the journey. Truly superb service from... More
