The room on the ground floor was light and very clean with lovely sea views. Great design for people who have difficulty walking, with thoughtful handles in the bathroom and... More

From the moment we entered we were made feel at home by Paula and Nigel. The room was bright and pleasant with all you could require. Breakfast was wholesome and well cooked , nothing was too much trouble. Very helpful in giving directions as to where to go , not knowing the area this was helpful.

Nigel and Paula are excellant hosts.There is good off-road parking. We were greeted enthusiastically by Nigel, who gave a tour of the breakfast room with views towards the sea and West Somerset Railway line. We were then taken to our room, a family room overlooking Blue Anchor station and a clear view of trains approaching from Minehead. The room was... More

We spent two nights at The Langbury and it was a perfect break. The room was really comfortable and the breakfast excellent. The welcome is extremely friendly and the information on the area was extensive. The swimming pool was an unexpected bonus.

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
