A genuine hidden gem on the West Somerset coast! Nigel n Paula make your first stay feel like you're coming home. Be aware the access to the car park is steep so if you have a long overhang or tow bar take care. The room was clean, tidy and very comfortable. We were offered a cup of tea on arrival... More

The title says it all. Immaculate clean room, unbelievable breakfast ranging from full English, fresh fruit salad, cereals etc, etc. and more pleasant and helpful hosts you will not find, although Nigel's weather forecasts were a bit "iffy". The swimming pool was the cherry on top.

We actually stayed here in June 2014. The place, owners and locations is perfect. No faults. Everything from cake on arrival, to a beautiful room with a sea view, and a stunning breakfast just makes it the best place I've stayed in!! Fantastic!!

I've stayed in some excellent B&Bs over the years but this one has the edge. We booked only a few days before our stay and it looked from the website as if only a twin room was available. A few days later I received a phone call from Paula asking if we'd prefer the room to be made into a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Langbury is the large Edwardian home of Nigel and Paula Smythe. Originally built as a gentleman's residence, it stands in its own grounds set in an elevated position in the small coastal village of Blue Anchor. Here you will find a friendly welcoming atmosphere combined with individual attention and an excellent Aga cooked, locally sourced, breakfast. Accommodation is provided in five individually furnished rooms which all enjoy magnificent views of the sea and the hills of glorious Exmoor and the Quantocks which are a feast for the eyes at any time of year. The Langbury is 100 metres from the beach and Blue Anchor Station where you can board a steam train on the West Somerset Railway - the longest preserved railway in the country. We are approximately half a mile outside of the Exmoor National Park and three miles from the medieval village of Dunster with its fairy-tale National Trust Castle. The traditional seaside resort of Minehead is five miles to the west and the ancient harbour town of Watchet three miles to the East. ... more   less
