Walking

 

There are walks galore from Longmead House. Many of our guests don’t get in their cars between arriving and departing at the end of their stay with us! We can loan you OS maps of the area and are happy to suggest many different routes from our front door. The South West Coast Path, Tarka Trail and Two Moors Way all pass through and can form the basis of some spectacular circular day walks.
