Absolutely amazing from the moment we arrived..
The Long House more than lived up to expectation and the photographs simply don't do it justice, it's a beautiful property in a stunning part of Devon. Little touches like the cream tea upon arrival make you feel welcome and special guest at this rather exquisite holiday home. It's huge! And perfect for an extended family with a pet looking to spend some quality time together. The bedrooms are stunning and the Egyptian cotton linen and comfy beds ensure you enjoy a comfortable night's sleep before waking up to the sound of housemartins (I think) tweeting outside and horses neighing in the nearby field. Internally and externally the property is absolutely gorgeous and we would be delighted to stay here in the height of summer or the midst of winter with the real fire lit in the living room, crackling and hissing, whilst providing a warm and welcoming glow. The bathroom with its roll-top bath and walk in wet room rain shower were a huge hit with all of our party members and everything you could possibly want can be found in the kitchen where we spent time gathered around the large table as an extended family. We loved it, our dog loved it, my daughter loved the tree house, and I'm sure if you booked the Long House, you'd love it too! If we are ever in the position to stay here again in the future as a group booking, we wouldn't think twice. Thanks for a very pleasant and thoroughly relaxing holiday.
At the end of our week - 2nd year in a row at the Long House!
Third year overall and we actually made it to another beach, other than Croyde! Putsborough (Apparently) has superior building sand. The accommodation is lovely - although some more serving utensils would be helpful! We've really been lucky with the weather and can't wait for next year! According to ym 4 year old niece 'Everything in Devon is fun!' Can't help but agree! Ocean Cottages Comments: Thank you for your suggest for additional serving utensils. The owners have reviewed this, and we can confirm that 4 large serving spoons. a ladle and some salad servers have been provided for future guests. Thank you for your feedback.
A wonderful house
We loved our week at the Long House. It is well-equipped, very comfortable and charmingly decorated. It is in a lovely tranquil setting, tucked away in a little hamlet but still within easy striking distance of the coast. We followed many of the recommendations the owners made in their thoughtful house book and hence enjoyed many excellent outings. I'd love to go back to the Long House!
We were two families of three with three dogs between us. This place was simply beautiful. We stayed for a week and we all were very sad to leave. Loved every single thing about it from the welcome scones to the comfortable and homely furnishings and decor through to the superb garden which was just perfect for our four legged friends!! We will definitely look at returning in the future.
Ditto what others have said!
Lovely house, very well equipped, wonderfully comfortable beds, beautiful tranquil garden and lovely views. The arrival scones were too kind! We have loved discovering the beaches - especially Lee Bay, a magical place! Many happy evenings barbequing and enjoying the warm weather outside. Very sad to leave!
Our family of eight have enjoyed an absolutely fantastic week at The Long House!
It's beautifully spacious, comfortable and well equipped - perfect sitting room for the world cup and love island! We particularly loved the pretty and peaceful garden and views with the sound of birds chirping - so idyllic. Pimms in the garden - what more could you want! Thank you for much for the delicious scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam - it was a great start to our family holiday. We have a delicious lunch at the Rock Inn and would definitely recommend it! Putsborough is our favourite beach, the views are stunning! We would definitely recommend The Long House and would love to return. Thank you so much. PS: We don't want to go home!
Comfortable as home
This is a large, gracious, beautifully decorated house with views from every window of the quiet, rolling countryside. The kitchen is generously equipped, the two living rooms are warm and comfortable, the fireplace is excellent and provides great cheer. The bedrooms are all spacious and pleasant, with quality linens and towels. This is a wonderful location, with footpaths right at your door, the beaches only a brief drive away as is Barnstaple, where all one's shopping and entertainment needs can be met. The spectacular coastal path is less than half an hour away. Since we were there over Christmas, I asked if we could have a tree. I expected an artificial one, only to arrive and find a real tree already fully trimmed for us and the entire house tastefully and thoughtfully decorated for Christmas. This is a rental agency that will bend over backward to make you feel at home, and indeed, from the moment we entered and settled at the big in-kitchen table, we felt that we'd arrived in our own abode. We just hated to leave at the end of the week.
The Long House is such a perfect location, a beautiful place with everything you need.

Christmas at the Long House
We first came to the Long House in July 2016, returning the following summer for another great holiday. Never having been away for Christmas we decided to book for 2018. We'v ehad such a great time once again. Greeted with a yummy Yule Log and Quality Street, we proceeded to enjoy lots of festive activities in this beautiful house. we even managed a BBQ on Christmas Eve with sparkles and carol singing in the garden. three generations have yet again had a fabulous time making many happy memories. thank you so much
This is the first time we have come to this house and it is beautiful. We came with 3 families and have had an amazing time. A very sociable house. The Lemon Drizzle caske on arrival was awesome and a lovely touch. Lovely warm and snug house and caters for everything. Love the White Company Towels!!!
Thank you very much for an amazing break.
