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.

Excellent in all aspects, you will not be disappointed. Award winning breakfasts. Not taking children ensures a relaxed stay. The fact that it has many return bookings says something. Close to sea and West Somerset Railway.

"Beautiful views all round."
"Ask for an upstairs room, Dunster room has a stunning view. For the less able these is a downstairs room."
"If there is a room available, grab it before someone else does !"
"We always choose the downstairs twin room because my mother cannot climb stairs."
"I am sure all rooms are of an excellent standard"
