“Beautiful! we'll be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2011

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.

If you are ever in need of accommodation in North Devon, we thoroughly recommend this beauty!

We were blown away by the peaceful location and lovely setting of this renovated Devon Long House. The owners Jo and Jerry are charming hosts and make you so welcome, you can come and go as you please with no rules and regulations. You can make yourself a cup of tea or coffee in the Dining Room at any time of day or night or chill your wine in the fridge.

We know that Jo will cook an evening meal for you and have it on good recommendation that her food is all locally sourced and superb. We unfortunately didnt have time to experience this as our own schedule was pretty busy, but can certainly recommend the brilliant FULL ENGLISH Breakfast - I couldnt eat again all day afterwards !!!

We will hopefully have the chance to visit again and have more time to really explore the local area which is so pretty.

Many thanks Jo and Jerry for a wonderful couple of days in your beautiful home

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to The Long House bed and breakfast. The perfect yet peaceful North Devon location; close to Braunton & Barnstaple, the golden, sandy beaches of North Devon and Exmoor. We have lovingly restored our 17th century Devon Long House from top to toe, with light and airy, en-suite bedrooms. A cosy snug and dining room private for guests only. You have a key to your own door and may come and go as you please. As we only have one double and one single room, there is plenty of space, we are never crowded. Often a B&B means just a bedroom, however we offer you lots of private space totally separate from our “end of the house”!• Bed and breakfast totally separate to our “end of the house”• Your own private entrance into a large private dining room• Private snug, with TV and wood-burner, books galore and comfy settees• 1 double en-suite and 1 single en-suite room• Very comfortable beds and beautiful linens• Power showers• Roll away beds for children• Light and airy rooms• TV, DVD in double rooms• Free WIFI• Welcome to have a take out, enjoy fish n chips in front of the TV!• Guest dresser full or cutlery and crockery• Your own fridge in the dining room• Tea, coffee and biscuits always available in the dining room• Garden seating area and access to the paddock• Dog friendly – access to our paddock for a morning run• Kids welcome – all ages, travel cot and high chair available • Special diets catered for (let us know in advance)• Local sausages, our own fresh eggs, home made bread and marmalade• Storage for bikes, golf clubs and surf boards• Parking• Peaceful location• Use of swimming pool on request (15 mins drive away)• NOTE: a rather patchy mobile signalKids are welcome to roam the paddock and play in the stream (bring wellies), look out for Jingle our super friendly Labrador, our reliable old horse Jack and the chickens!! We are a great set up for a family of 4 as we can put a rollaway bed into the single room and so as a family you have the entire B&B to yourself along with 2 TV’s and WiFi – what more could a family want!!!!! Look at our family deals in the prices page.While the kids Facebook each other, grown ups, put your feet up, enjoy a glass of wine, listen to the stream trickle by and the owls hoot as night time falls.Come and escape to the countryside……. ... more   less
