Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday modern life at Longlands this summer
All cabins at Longlands sleep up to six with a Kingsize bed, double cabin and two twins. The cabins contain a wood burning stove for heat and cooking, en-suite shower and separate en-suite loo. The on-site shop sells local produce, including beer, cider and wine and the team can even cater if required!
With Exmoor and the North Devon coast quite literally on the doorstep there is a huge range of opportunities for unique experiences.
The first of these is 4×4 Safari on Exmoor with Experience Exmoor. There is no better way to see Exmoor, its wildlife, stunning scenery and learn some history and stories about the area. Spot Exmoor’s version of the Big Five: red deer (largest British land mammal), the Exmoor pony (rarer than the giant panda), the wild goats of Lynton, otters (once a declining species but now thriving) and Honey buzzards.
