Another very satisfied guest at the Longhouse, we stayed for one night whilst walking the SW coast path. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel so welcome with freshly made tea and smiles all round. The bedroom was perfect and had everything we needed with a very good ensuite shower. We certainly felt immediately at home which... More

I booked this B&B as part of a surprise weekend away for my mum and we couldn't have asked for anything nicer! It was lovely to be greeted at the door with tea and coffee by Lynne and Pete after a long drive down and to have a chat in their lovely kitchen with those stunning views. Our room was... More

How can you improve on perfection - somehow Lynne and Pete manage to do it every time. Beautiful home with views to die for. The hosts Lynne and Pete treat you as part of the family and cannot do enough for you. The finishing touches around the home are superb. They should branch out into interior designer. We have been...

This is a flawless B&B. Pete and Lynn are excellent, genuinely warm hosts, and the house is spotless and tastefully decorated to an extremely high standard. The garden and its spectacular view are a great additional draw. Breakfast was top quality and lovingly prepared. We would go back in a heartbeat.

We don't normally do Bed and Breakfast and when visiting Sidmouth usually stay at the Victoria Hotel so we were a little apprehensive as we just found The Longhouse from their website (http://www.holidaysinsidmouth.co.uk/). Well all I can say is just how lucky that was and there was really no need for any apprehension. On our arrival we were met by... More

A great little gem. Pete & lynn were great hosts very welcoming with a beautiful home and a view to die for. Breakfast was one of the best I have ever had with home made bread and lovely local produce. Just a short drive from sidmouth. Walks abound around the area. Our only wish was that we could have stayed... More

Yet again we had another superb visit to the Longhouse on 22nd September and 30th September 2011 which is unsurpassed and is the benchmark for all bed and breakfasts and well deserves the five star rating from Visit Britain. The comfort is amazing. Every effort is made by Lynn and Pete to ensure guests feel welcome and are given the... More

Second time here this year. Pete & Lynne are fantastic hosts. We stayed in the Garden room again, which now has 2 reclining chairs (so comfy I kept falling asleep in them!!). You do not want for anything at The Longhouse. Breakfast was delicious. Superb hospitality again, such lovely people. We will be back for more.
