The Longhouse,

luxury sidmouth holidays

Formerly a part of the Norman Lockyer Observatory, has been lovingly restored into a residential property and recently updated to provide the benefits of modern living. Surrounded by woodland, the Longhouse sits just below the top of Salcombe hill, with views across Sid Bay and Sidmouth town. A five minute level walk from the coast path makes it an ideal stopping point for ardent walkers. Just under a mile from the town centre and sea front puts it in easy touch with the town’s facilities. The Longhouse is set in an acre of woodland providing quiet seclusion in beautiful surroundings.

Both double rooms are on ground level with easy access, have recently been fully refurbished and are gas centrally heated. Each has TV/DVD and full tea/coffee making facilities.

A warm welcome is guaranteed, please phone and speak to Lynne or Pete Vincent for further booking information, tariff and availability.

  • Testimonials

    Our stay at the longhouse was superb. Lynne and Pete were great hosts and made us feel part of the family. The room was lovely and large and very nicely decorated with a lovely bathroom. There was use of the garden if you wished. The view over the bay was stunning. Oh and the breakfast was to die for. Will definitely be visiting again. — June 2013, travelled with family

    Excellent accommodation, warm and welcoming hosts, superb views - not to mention the historical connection with the Norman Lockyer Observatory - staying at the Longhouse was definitely one of the highlights of our South West Coast Path walking holiday. — June 2013, travelled as a couple
