Fantastic stay, amazing hosts - We have just returned from a weekend with Lauren and Henry and have had a fantastic stay. As hosts they were spot on. I have Coeliac Disease and they were able to fully accommodate gluten free sausages and bread for breakfast. Lauren was also able to advise on local eateries where we could find gluten free food.

The room was spotless and has everything you would hope to find. The bed was big and comfy with lovely crisp linen.

It's hard to believe that Lauren and Henry have only been at Longmead House for a year. The professionalism they show cannot be surpassed. I would recommend Longmead House to anyone visiting North Devon. It is just on the edge of where the Valley of The Rocks meets the town so is perfectly situated for walks and visits to the various shops and restaurants etc. on offer.

The welcome we received was the best that we have ever experienced in more than 30 years of travel. The owners Lauren and Henry went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Which was so appreciated by us, in a world where everything appears so much to be taken for granted. A big thumbs up for 'Longmead House'.

- There was absolutely nothing not to like.

Advance Party Visit - “Two couples, forming the advance party for a 15 person visit later in the year, had a very warm welcome from Lauren and Henry, a delightful couple - who are entirely prepared to put themselves out to meet our requirements. All the rooms are clean, well presented and comfortable. Henry cooked an excellent breakfast and both he and Lauren gave us a warm and enthusiastic stay with much helpful advice.”
