Welcome to The Langbury; the award winning 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 ancient harbour town of Watchet is three miles to the East, the traditional seaside resort of Minehead is five miles to the west. Beyond this is open moorland which has thousands of acres of some of the most beautiful un-populated scenery in England.
Our outdoor swimming pool and sunbathing area provides an ideal space to relax during the summer months whilst our well tended gardens can be enjoyed all year round. We provide excellent off road private parking and free Wi-Fi.
