Why we love Spring

Stunning Sunsets & Starry Skies

The sunsets in Spring 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.  Enjoy them from your deck or the warm waters of our hot tub!

Wonderful Wildlife

Gambolling lambs, sunbathing fox cubs, thermal circling buzzards, sleepy fawns and bumbling badgers.  So many wildlife spotting opportunities on our land and in our woods.  Whilst on the moor Exmoor pony foals find their feet and the wild goat kids of Lynton learn to mountaineer!

Quiet Beaches

The beaches are so quiet at this time of year 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.

Read more about about our beautiful beaches.

Great Surf

The sea is beginning to warm up and the surf is pumping at Woolacombe & Croyde.  It’s a brilliant time to learn to surf!  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!

Read more about the amazing adventures available in the area.

The Weather!

This Spring could be one of the best ever with gloriously sunny days, cool evenings and clear nights; perfect for star spotting!

But whatever the weather you will be cosy, snug and dry in your lodge.  Our wood burning stove will keep you toasty warm; LED lamps and candles create a romantic glow; the ensuite shower with its wood burning boiler provides a sauna like experience; whilst blankets, hot water bottles and thick duvets will keep you cosy and warm.  Read more about what our guests say!

 

We do hope you will come stay with us at Longlands this Spring!

 

Six Gold Awards for Best Glamping!

The Best Glamping in the SouthWest three times over!

We are over the moon at receiving our sixth GOLD award.  We don’t believe that there is another Glamping site in the country that has won Gold for three consecutive years in both their county and their region!  The best in Devon and the whole of the SouthWest!  We are particularly thrilled as this year there were more entries from brilliant sites than ever before!

“It’s what dreams are made of!”

Part of the judging process to determine who offers the best glamping in the SouthWest includes a mystery shopper visit.   They carefully review everything from the website, the booking process, the standard of accommodation, the information provided, through to your farewell and follow up.  We scored an incredible 94% and would just love to share a few of our favourite comments from the report:

“Luxury at its best!”

“Anyone staying at Longlands is in for a real treat”

“A location and view that are normally only seen in your dreams.”

“Standing by the hot tub looking over the lake felt like a fairy tale.”

“Every last detail is thought of.”

“The photos on the website are inspiring but it’s not until you see the location and thetents with your own eyes that you see the magic.”

“I describe it as “it’s what dreams are made of” and it really is.”

“Longlands is an established business and you can see that so much effort has been put in to ensure that visitors have an amazing experience.”

“Simply Outstanding”

Thinking of starting a Glamping Business ?

 

Are you looking for a change of lifestyle?  Do you dream of living in the country surrounded by green fields and beautiful views?  Are you thinking of setting up your own Glamping Business? Or do you have a Glamping Business and want to create more bookings and increase your profits?

The Essential Glamping Business Course on 27th March 2019 will teach you everything that you need to know to create & run a successful glamping business.

“Bella has not just been in the business, she is the business!  Save yourself a fortune and get yourself a guru!”  Thomas Noel, The Gathering

The Essential Glamping Business Course

Here are a just few of the questions that this course will answer:

Project Scoping & Property Search

What should you be looking for in a site?  What will make the difference to your guests experience? Are there considerations that might help you gain planning permission? What should you look for in the surrounding area that will be of interest to future guests?

Planning

Found your site and starting the planning process? Do you know what to include in your planning application? What additional reports might you have to include? Have you found the consultants to write these reports?  How do you get support for your plans from the right people?  How much will this cost and how long will it take?

Business Plan

What information should you include in your business plan?  How will you estimate your building & running costs?  How much should you budget for a lodge, the fittings and furnishings?  Have you thought about storage facilities?  Have you remembered sewerage, plumbing, electrics, access tracks?  What are the costs of laundry, wood, cleaning?

Creating a unique offering

Do you know what your guests want from their holiday?  What will you provide for them?  Have you thought through the potential issues in building your site?  What suppliers should you use?  What will they need you to do before they supply your glamping structure? Is it worth having a shop and providing meals?

Marketing

Do you know who your target market is? How do you persuade them to book?  Have you got the right business name?  What about domain name? How important is your logo?  What do you need to include on your website?  How much will it cost? How do you get people to visit your website?

Running the Business

What health & safety issues do you need to be aware of?  Are there certain licences and permissions that will you need?  What are the day to day tasks in running the business?  Who needs to do what on a changeover day?  How long does each job take ?  How many people do you need to be ready in time?  What are the secrets to maximising your efficiency and effectiveness?

Managing guests and their expectations

What do your guests expect when they come to stay?  What information will you need to provide them with and at what point?  How do you minimise problems?  What do you need to include in your welcome talk?  How do you ensure your guests have a wonderful stay and want to return year after year?

Go Glamping

Have you ever been glamping?  How will you sell an experience that you have not had?  What do other glamping sites offer?  How will you be different?  What will make your site special and stand out against the rest?  You have the opportunity to stay in one of our award winning lodges at a special delegates rate.  This will greatly enhance your learning experience!

Investment

Your investment of £595 for a one day course will buy you the answers to all these questions and many more besides.

This course will save you money: I would have saved £15,000 in legal fees had I found my planning consultant at the start of our planning process.

This course will save you time:  I spent 6 months searching for an insurance company that would cover us.

You will leave with a thick handout to take home including everything covered in the course plus lots of additional insights & contacts.

You only have to take one weekend’s booking to cover this cost.

Book two places and get a 50% discount on the second place – £895.  You only need sell one week in low season to cover this investment.

“A really useful and fabulous day.  I’ve learnt so much and feel very inspired.  I actually think I can do it now!”

Enjoy a Romantic Escape at Longlands!

The Ultimate Romantic Escape

As romantic escapes go you would be hard pushed to find somewhere more romantic than Longlands, the North Devon coast & Exmoor.

To quote one of our guests: “Find me somewhere more romantic and I won’t believe you!”

Should you need further convincing here are our top 10 romantic moments to enjoy at Longlands.

Top 10 romantic moments:

1. The Sunset Hour

Watch the sun setting over the lake and valley and onto the sea, from the sofa of your deck.  Mother Nature regularly treats us to some of the most spectacular sunset displays that you will ever see.

Our hot tub also enjoys wonderful views of the setting sun.  Enjoy the light displays immersed in deliciously warm water – utter magic!  And we even have a special Hot Tub offer just for couples.  Read more about our Hot Tub .

2. Candlelit dinner under the stars

The total absence of light pollution ensures that the Milky Way and constellations sparkle in the night sky in a way that you rarely see.  Don’t worry about the cooking: we’ll do it for you!  Take a look at the menu of food that we offer: you might even call it Gastro Glamping!

3. Cuddle up on the sofa

We have a blanket box full of games to play or borrow a book from the Larder library.  North Devon & Exmoor have inspired so many authors & poets from R.D. Blackmore with Lorna Doone, Coleridge, Shelley, Henry Williamson & Tarka, and now Veronica Henry & Michael Morpurgo.  Our library collection includes these and many others besides.

4. Snuggle under the duvet

Listen to the babble of the stream, the hoot of owls, the rustle of leaves.  Mother nature provides the very best in sound tracks!   Our amazingly comfortable beds and the freshest air in the country will ensure you sleep soundly.

5. Wander through ancient woods

The magnificent beech trees & ferns, with bluebells and wild garlic are so romantic that they have inspired at least two proposals that we know of!  What could be more romantic that a surprise proposal in the dappled glade of ancient woods?

6. Float in a boat

Enjoy the peace & tranquility of our lake from the pair of adirondack loungers on the jetty or our boats!  Watch the fish jump or cast a line and catch your supper.  Read more about Longlands.

7. Walk hand in hand on golden sands

Paddle in the surf.  Discover secret beaches.  Soak up the autumn sunshine!  There are 16 beaches within easy reach of Longlands including the best beach in Britain, as voted by TripAdvisor travellers for the past 2 years: Woolacombe Beach.  Its three and half miles of golden sands mean you can always find your own space.  Check out more of our Brilliant Beaches.

8. Experience the magic of Exmoor

Admire the stunning coastline & breathtaking views.  Spot a stag. Meet an Exmoor pony. Admire the antics of the wild goats of Lynton.   It is a place like no other.  Utterly wild, magical, mystical, and so romantic!  Read more about Exmoor .

9. Discover ancient cobbled streets & beautiful harbours

Discover Elizabethan fishing villages.  Ride an unique Victorian Cliff railway.   Take a plunge in a secret tide pool. Skip across the ancient Tarr Steps!  They’re said to be older than Stonehenge!  Read More about our local Villages.

10. Dine out in decadence

The Coach House by Michael Caines, at the Kentisbury Grange, just 2 miles away.  Or feast at the Thomas Carr’s Michelin Starred restaurant, the Olive Room.  Enjoy a taste extravaganza with Noel Corston at NC@EX34 in Woolacombe.  Or simply indulge in a Devon cream tea or fish and chips on the sea front!

Whatever your definition of romance we promise you a romantic escape to remember with memories to cherish forever.  Read more more about Glamping for Couples at Longlands.

Finding Joy in January

January is not a month that features on many, if anyone’s, list of favourite months!  Getting back into the routine of things after Christmas and New year is hard enough, without having to deal with dreary weather too!  But January is also the ideal time for reflection, planning, establishing healthy habits for the year ahead.  So, perhaps it should be a month that we embrace, rather than wish away!

 

Here are seven things to do this January to turn it from a month of deprivation and depression to one of joy and jubilation!

 

1 Book a holiday

Research shows that just the act of planning and anticipating your holiday will give you a boost in happiness.  Just imagine yourself with a drink in hand, sitting on a sofa, looking out onto rolling green fields, a tranquil lake and the sea in the distance.  Enjoy the awesome spectacle of the sun setting on the sea, followed by the twinkling of millions of stars, in the deepest dark night of one of the very few Dark Sky reserves in the world.  Listen to the fire crackling in the wood burner, the babbling of the stream below the lodge, the wind rustling the trees and not a single sound intrusion from the modern world: just Mother Nature’s pure, relaxing soundtrack.  Now quick, before we run out of availability, book your stay at Longlands!

 

2 Declutter

A good tidy and sort out is the best way to launch yourself into the new year.  Marie Kondo is a Japan’s expert declutterer and professional cleaner.  In her book “The life changing art of Tidying” she explains that the key to success is the order in which you tackle things.  Clothes first, in case you were wondering!  It’s a quick read with sensible advice and should inspire you to turn out your cupboards and get rid of all those things you really don’t want or need, but can’t bring yourself to part with.

 

3 Get Organised

Not just in terms of stuff in your house (Marie Kondo will take care of that – see above) but start to plan out the year ahead.  Map out a new weekly routine that builds in time for exercise, time to plan the meal’s for the week, time for friends and family, time for hobbies and interests, and most importantly some time to relax and unwind.

 

4 Ditch the Diet

Read Mimi Spencer’s “101 Things To do Before you Diet” and learn how dieting is the problem and not the solution.  Her fantastically entertaining and inspiring no-diet book is filled with tips on how to lose weight and feel better about yourself.  She teaches you how to stop judging and start living and covers topics such as: Eat more and weight less; Dress thin and look gorgeous; Change your mind to change your shape; Banish body blues and find body balance. How fantastic does that sound?

 

5 Get Active

Twenty minutes of heart pumping exercise will not only burn calories and help you get back into your jeans, but it will also release a whole host of lovely feel-good endorphins into your system that will make you feel on top of the world.  If you can find time in the morning you have the whole day to enjoy that happy feeling and the increase metabolic rate!

 

6 Learn about yourself

Where better to start than understanding about how your brain works? David Rock’s book “Your Brain at Work” explores strategies for overcoming distraction, regaining focus and working smarter all day long!  It might just change your life and not just how you work!  So far I have learnt why it is important to prioritise prioritising, simplify, do one thing at a time, remove distractions and clear your mind & find the right amount of stress for peak brain performance…and that’s just the first chapter!

 

7 Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the experience of paying close attention the present in an open and accepting way.  It is the practice of living “in the present”, of being aware of an experience as it occurs in real time and accepting what you see.  Research has shown that not only will it reduce stress and make you healthier, it will, quite literally, change how you see the world.  Whilst it isn’t difficult, the hard part is remembering to do it!  I am using “The Little Book of Mindfulness” by Dr Patrizia Collard to help me find 10 minutes each day for peace, calm, relaxation and brain training!

 

Wishing you a joyful January and a great start to 2019!  We do hope to see you at Longlands: take note of point 1!

Longlands New Glamping Party Package!

Hen Party, Birthday Party, Anniversary Celebration, Friends’ Reunion!

Whatever the occasion, Longlands is the perfect party venue for 20-30 guests.

And we have a brand new glamping party package that includes everything you need to make your weekend utterly magical.

Stunning Setting

Our 5 luxurious Safari lodges nestle into the hillside of a private secluded valley, overlooking the North Devon coast.

Our 17 acres of beautiful grounds are yours to enjoy, along with a private boating and fishing lake, meadows, nature trails through ancient woods, streamside walks, a games field, and a covered games area.

We are just 20 minutes from the best beach in Britain and on the doorstep of the magical and mysterious Exmoor National Park.

Learn more about our beautiful Location.

Luxurious Lodges

Each lodge has 3 bedrooms and 4 beds:  a King bed, a double cabin bed and 2 twin beds, so you can invite up to 30 guests.

However, if you would prefer everyone to have their own bed limit your guest list to 20.

Our lodges all have ensuite showers and separate wash rooms, a wood burning stove to keep you toasty warm in all weathers, and a vintage Chesterfield sofa to curl up on.

The emphasis is heavy on glamour and a far cry from camping!   Think “boutique hotel with canvas sides”!

Read more about our Lodges.

Just bring clothes

Your lodge has absolutely everything that you will need for your stay, from firewood to firelighters, lemons to loo paper, coffee to conditioner, even beach towels to bunting!

You only need to bring your clothes and a swimsuit!

Party in the Barn

Our Party Barn can seat up to 30 around our beautiful bespoke oak tables.  We decorate it with lanterns, flowers and candles.

There’s also a music system, screen and projector.

Hot Tub Heaven

As part of your party package our cedar wood hot tub will be available to use at pre arrange times for up to 6 people at any one time.

It sits on a deck overlooking the lake, with views out to the sea and the setting sun.    It has a changing room and a hot outdoor shower and we provide towels, natural aromatherapy bathroom products, fruited iced water and acrylic glasses.

Watch the sun set on the sea or the stars twinkling in the night sky.
