Cannot recommend the Long House more highly. Fantastic location and beautiful rooms.
As well as your own room there is a shared 'kitchen' and lounge (the snug) But as there's only one other single room, you more or less have these rooms to yourself (if you're in the double)
There's virtually no mobile phone signal (which is probably a benefit) but there is a land line which you're free to use. there's also free WI-FI which is useful.
The single track road to the house can be a bit spooky at night (especially if it's raining) but this only adds to the feeling that you truly are in the country and away from the 'hustle and bustle' of the city. That said the large town of Barnstable is only a short drive away and the coast is not too far also.
Would certainly recommend it and I'm sure we'll be back.
