Guests Sitting Area
As a surfer you know how unpleasant it is to pull on a cold wetstuit next day - no need at Long Cottage, rinse your suit then dry it in our drying rack, and dry your rashies etc in our boiler room - now thats luxury!
On top of this we are under 10 mins from any of our beaches, Croyde for those of you sticking to shortboards, Puts and Woolacombe for underrated waves or come to the dark side at Saunton - where 9'0" is a short board!
If you are new to the area we can offer suggestions about where to go on a given day according to wind direction and tides to maximise your surf trip.
If you dont surf, there is plenty to do in the area. Either take one of the walks in area, along the cliffs or inland. We have plenty of walking guides and OS maps to borrow. If you dont fancy that then cycling - both on and off road is available or even chill out in our guest lounge with the Sunday Papers!
In addition, Karine is a massage therapist and can ease your stresses with a relaxing aromatherapy massage - call her for bookings and treatment times.
All our guests are welcome to use the garden, whether you want to relax after an active day on the beach or just to sit in the sun with a cold drink.
