latest Review

Recently stayed for 2 nights at Longmead House. Lauren and Henry were the perfect hosts and made our stay very comfortable. Henry cooked a superb breakfast with lots of options including a super fresh fruit salad, they even catered for me being Gluten Free. Room was lovely, very clean and comfortable. Excellent location and within walking distance of both Lynton and the Valley of the Rocks. We would definitely recommend and hope to re-visit in the not to distant future.

We had a very warm welcome from both Lauren & Henry at the start of our holiday. : ) Nothing was too much trouble and very knowledge able too. The breakfasts were to die for! our room was extremely clean and very comfortable. From the B&B you have access to all shops, scenery and varied cafes, restaurants. The views from Lynton, Lynmouth and the valley of rocks are amazing, which are within walking distance. Both myself and Rob would like to wish Lauren and Henry a very prosperious and happy future at Longmead, as they thoroughly desvere it! : )

“Excellent B&B” Reviewed 6 days ago NEW It clearly shows that new owners Henry and Lauren are trying to run the best B&B in the area. After a warm welcome we are shown to nicely decorated and spotlessly clean rooms. Everything show care and consideration towards their guests. Nice and comfy bedlinen, outstanding welcoming tray, flat screen TV, hairdryer. They also provide their guests with a map over the area with main attractions, a spacious sitting room with open fire, lots of games and magazines and an honesty bar. Superb breakfast, including fresh fruitsalad and homemade products and a nice selection of hot dishes. The eggs Benedict are to die for!
