My fiancé and I decided to escape to Sidmouth randomly for a weekend, it being a place his grandparents loved to visit (and still a place a lot of people's grandparents clearly like to visit!). Well I must say that the Longhouse is one of the nicest B&Bs we have ever stayed in. High up on salcombe hill road, we... More

We stayed for two nights while visiting friends in Sidmouth and attending a meeting at the adjacent Norman Lockyer Observatory. The Garden Room is very well-appointed with ample storage space, a comfortable large bed and excellent en-suite facilities. Lynne and Pete made us very welcome and provided us with delicious a la carte breakfasts. The Long House provided the home-from-home... More

We can't rate The Longhouse high enough, it was absolutely magnificient! Me and my fiance booked it with very short notice, desperate to escape London for a weekend. The moment we stepped through the doors of The Longhouse , we instantly felt at home. Lynn and Pete couldn't be more welcoming and were fantastic hosts throughout our stay. Our only... More

I totally recommend this beautiful B&B. Its location overlooks Sidmouth and has lovely gardens all around it. It is peaceful and relaxing. The rooms are decorated to a very high standard with great attention to detail. Pete and Lynne are amazing. They really make you feel at home. Highly recommended.

We were given a warm welcome at the Long house and were delighted with our lovely room and use of the patio. The gardens are pretty and the views and ambience are just what people need when on holiday. We would have happily stayed longer.

Last Friday, we returned from our sixth visit to the Longhouse; Lynn and Pete welcomed us with tea and cakes and the room was spotlessly clean as ever. The breakfast choice was excellent and I particularly enjoyed the mozeralla ommlette. We were able to leave our car at the Longhouse and use the free Sidmouth Hopper bus into town. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 12 year old daughter. We were warmly welcomed - Pete and Lynne are so friendly and easy to talk to. A delicious piece of cake and a coffee sitting on the beautiful terrace/gardens outside our garden room was most welcome after a long drive. The accomodation is really interesting with the historic... More
