Longstone Bed & Breakfast is nestled within the small, rural farming and shooting village of Challacombe, Exmoor National Park. A short country stroll to Challacombe Shoot and down the hill into the heart of the village to one of North Devon’s most popular country pubs The Black Venus Inn. Serving fantastic locally sourced refreshments and freshly cooked lunch and evening meals.
Challacombe’s picturesque unspoilt landscape ranges from secluded valley farmland, historical monuments, to high, open, moorland.
As the seasons change so do the magical delights of Challacombe’s rugged landscape, as spring starts to appear the migrating birds return, lambs are dancing in fields and there is hope for long summer days. As autumn approaches the moors are a carpet of rich purple heather, a last hurray for summer, crunchy leaf littered footpaths and warm cosy evenings around a log-burning fire await. Winter nights draw in and the green rolling fields are often blanketed in a deep layer of festive snow. Challacombe’s natural charm attracts visitors yearning to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, throughout the year.
