Lynton is a beautiful area situated on the rugged coast of North Devon that offers certain challenges and limitations which might prove to be important when choosing a destination for your holiday or break.  The main driving roads are dual lanes but narrow, many local roads are narrow and often single lane, which can be challenging for larger vehicles.  The general terrain around Lynton &Lynmouth is very hilly, including Lynton which is perched on a cliff with several steep slopes for walking.

Fortunately, Longmead House is one of the few properties in Lynton that is accessed by a level road and path and is situated off Longmead leading to the Valley of Rocks. We have a level access gravel car park with space for 8 cars. There is a gravel driveway and paved path leading from the driveway to the front door across the garden. There is also access through a front gate and one step to the front paved path directly from the road to the front door entrance and hallway.

Ground floor rooms

The entrance hall and toilet have level access and there is one small step up into the corridor to the rest of the ground floor rooms (guest lounge and dining room). Due to the age and limitations of the building there are no downstairs bedrooms or lift to the first and second floors. All guest bedrooms are situated on the first and second floors.

The first floor is accessed by a carpeted staircase with 13 steps to the first floor. The second floor is accessed by a second carpeted stair case with 12 steps.


First floor:There are 4 bedrooms of varying size and layout. 3 out of the 4 have en-suite bathrooms with either walk in showers or baths with showers. Room 4 has access to a separate bathroom across the landing with a spacious walk in shower and toilet facilities.

Second floor:The upper floor and rooms are built into the eaves and have lower ceilings and exposed beams, making the doorways lower and the room sizes variable. Room 7, our Superior Double has a hand-held shower attachment with a bath en-suite. All other rooms have a walk in or step into shower cubicle en-suite facility.

All the bedrooms have flat screen TVs with remote controls and subtitle functions. There are in room guides with emergency exit details and smoke detectors. There are smoke detectors in both communal areas and guest bedrooms. The fire alarm is a loud claxon sound for emergency usage.
