We have previously stayed here at Longcroft House and found the location, views and tranquility perfect. The house is large and spacious and you get a comfortable relaxed feeling whilst staying here. We would return again without a doubt.

Pamela B,

Large house with lovely big rooms ; great for bigger families. Good location and views overlooking the bay however definitely need a car to get around due to the many hills.

Mrs K,

The property is a wonderful mansion, fabulous views over the sea with large sized gardens (though steep), swings in the trees etc. The views from the receptions rooms and 2 of the bedrooms are fantastic. Its a lovely old house. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds comfortable.
