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'.

“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! : )”


- There was nothing not to like. The perfect getaway.

“Fantastic New Owners!”


Our stay at Longmead House exceeded our expectations, even having read earlier reviews before booking. We very rarely stay in a B&B but are very glad we did on this occasion. We had a warm welcome from Henry, plus coffee and superb flapjacks made by Lauren. Clearly the previous owners had a made a good impact but Henry and Lauren are a terrific couple and have already created a great atmosphere at Longmead House, even though they've only been there a few weeks. We'll definitely stay there again and look forward to seeing how they update it and put their own stamp on it. Henry is a great cook! Breakfast was perfect! Parking and wifi are provided free of charge - always a bonus! We had room 1 (the premier room) which was spacious and comfortable. Lovely bathroom too.
Lynton is a good centre for coast and countryside. Lots of good walking and the coastal path is easily accessible direct from the house. Plenty of interesting places to visit within easy reach by car too.
Book it - you won't regret it!

“A guest house that goes the extra mile...and then some”


Longmead House, situated within easy walking distance of Lynton's famous Valley of the Rocks, is a classic guest house offering comfort and hospitality. The welcome was authentic and conversation flowed over a pot of tea and home made flapjacks. After a good night's sleep we enjoyed a fine breakfast, freshly prepared with local produce and very tasty indeed. Home made preserves to follow.....just right. The new owners have done amazingly well to maintain an established high standard, even though they only took over very recently. I expect they are looking forward to putting their own stamp on this pleasant house and the kind of fare and services on offer. A case of "you ain't seen nothing yet", if I'm any judge. I accidentally left some belongings and they were posted on to my next destination straight away. Top service !
