Spring is such a wonderful season. It’s bursting with life & promise and a great time of year to enjoy a luxury spring glamping getaway at Longlands. Book soon or you won’t find a space!
Why we love Spring
First primroses, then daffodils, followed by tulips. By mid May our woods are carpeted with bluebells and aromatic wild garlic, whilst the beech trees are the most wonderful lime green. The colours of Spring so beautiful and create one of my favourite colour combinations: lemon, lime, white and mauve. Stunning!
North Devon is home to some amazing gardens and they are a visual & aromatic treat in Spring. Castle Hill is awash with magnolia, cherry & apple blossom. Marwood Hill is famous for its primulas and fabulous showy and frothy astilbes. Whilst RHS Rosemoor has gorgeous tulips, stunning cornus on the lake and apple blossom in the kitchen garden.

Stunning Sunsets & Starry Skies
The sunsets in late April/May have to be seen to be believed with all their colour and vibrancy. And the stars are so bright you think you can reach out and touch the Milky Way. We overlook one of the first dark sky reserves in the world!
You can enjoy an amazing light display from Mother Nature, as she paints the sky, orange, red, and pink, either from the comfort of your deck, or whilst immersed in the warm waters of our hot tub! To read more about our Hot Tub click on the link.
Watch the wildlife antics in the fields and woods surrounding Longlands. The lambs are gambolling about, newly emerging fox cubs sunbathe on the hillside, and buzzards circle in the thermals above. Be very quiet and you might even find a fawn in our woods. Look out for a black and white bottom disappearing into the undergrowth at dusk, as a badger bubbles his way home.
On the moor the Exmoor pony foals are a delight to watch as they find their feet, whilst in the Valley of the Rocks the wild goats of Lynton teach their kids the mountaineering skills they will need to survive.
In Spring the beaches are so quiet that you might find you have a whole beach to yourselves! Particularly if you visit one of our secret beaches.
We have 16 beaches all in easy reach of Longlands, including the best beach in Britain: the award-winning Woolacombe Sands.

The sea in beginning to warm up and the surf is pumping at Woolacombe & Croyde. It’s a brilliant time to go surfing! So grab your wetsuit, gloves and boots and catch some waves! Hunter Surf can provide equipment and lessons. Tell them you are staying with us and get a 10% discount!

In the past few years we have been blessed with gorgeous weather in Spring. Soft sunny days with cool evenings and clear nights, perfect for star spotting.
But regardless of the weather you will be cosy, snug and dry at Longlands. We have a wood burning stove to curl up in front of. LED lamps and candles to banish the dark. An ensuite shower heated by a wood burning boiler. And blankets and hot water bottles to ensure you are cosy and warm even on the chilliest of nights.
