Reconnect with nature and revive your senses with sumptuously sustainable camping at its finest, set in a North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where everyone is welcome, including the dog.
Ideally situated on the beautiful North Devon coast and on the border of Exmoor National Park, you'll discover a whole new world of natural living at Longlands, representing the simplicity of outdoor living at its most magnificent, and the perfect escape from the hectic busyness of everyday life.
You'll find the friendly, family-run Longlands beautifully secluded in a private valley, with stunning woodland views all around. Babbling streams and a flowing private lake with waterfalls add to the idyllic natural feel. It's easy to see why they were awarded Gold in the 2017 South West Tourism Awards for the Best Glamping Business!
There's an abundance of care and appreciation for the natural environment, too - the site has won a TripAdvisor Platinum Green Leader Award for its careful attention to sustainability and low-carbon living. Wildlife-lovers will make plenty of new friends, with deer, badgers, owls and ducks and many more as staple visitors to the 17-acre site.
Simply choose your accommodation from five stunning safari lodges just waiting to welcome you - Lundy, Lee, Luscombe, Lynton and Lynmouth. Each lodge sleeps up to six people in a king bedroom, a twin and a double cabin bed, and are all thoughtfully designed and furnished to ensure you don't have to do anything other than indulge in opulent relaxation.
Wood-burners at the heart of each lodge make for a cosy and romantic feel throughout, and the lodges are lit by electric LED lamps - ideal light to get started on that book you've been waiting to try ...
Prepare a banquet fit for a woodland king in the well-stocked kitchen area, with its own larder, cool box and a spacious oven compartment built into the wood burning stove, where you'll even find a plate-warming slot. A small gas ring allows you to whip up the perfect mug of creamy hot chocolate, and there's a mains-supplied sink for the ultimate camping convenience.
For extra-special evenings, why not fire up the barbecue for a sizzling feast, followed by coffee and conversation under the stars? Toast some marshmallows for a real treat! Or enjoy a new addition for 2017 - a wood-fired hot tub, positioned in its own deck above the lake and the perfect spot to unwind in.
The bedrooms are designed with a good night's sleep build right in, with sumptuous Egyptian cotton bed linen and adjustable tog duvets that allow you to decide just how cosy you'd like to be. Extra blankets and even hot water bottles are provided for those chillier evenings, while fresh air, babbling streams and the soft calling from birds will provide you with the ideal slumbering soundtrack as you drift away.
You'll find a lovely selection of natural aromatherapy bath products to try and discover for an in-lodge pampering experience, with hot water readily available from a wood-burning boiler that keeps the bathroom extra-toasty - bliss!
You'll find your children and dogs are well catered-for too, with high chairs and removable cot sides available, and cosy bed, towel and food bowls for your faithful friend.
There's plenty of natural entertainment to be found at Longlands, why not take a wander and discover it for yourself? Take a romantic punt on the boating lake, go fishing for rainbow trout, go on a bug hunt, build a den or play a game of petanque, just to get you started off.
Back to your lodge, you'll find a box of games including Monopoly and Scrabble for old-school entertainment that will unleash everybody's competitive spirit - or perhaps you'd prefer to admire the stars from the comfort of your decking area, with books on hand to identify the beautiful constellations.
If you'd rather relax than cook, a tempting selection of freshly prepared treats are available, including breakfast pastries and the Exmoor-exclusive whortleberry jam! Arrange meals to order from the amazing on-site larder and cellar, featuring local produce, toys and homeware...and of course, local beers and ciders.
With thorough attention to detail throughout, you'll find Longlands has taken care of everything - so come and discover this secret valley and get ready to indulge!Things to note
