At Longbourn you will experience a warm welcome. Hosts Jane and Roland Horton look forward to greeting each of their guests personally. Longbourn is perfect for those seeking a country house experience. The beautifully decorated and furnished rooms reflect the period of the house creating a truly authentic country house feel, making it the perfect place to stay and relax or for a family wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of the town or simply to enjoy a rural break. The main accommodation offered is located on the first floor and accessed by stairs. In addition, there are two more family rooms on the second floor, available by special arrangement.
Jane and Roland pride themselves on their home-grown and locally sourced breakfast of freshly laid free range eggs from their traditional Lohmann Brown hens, home-made sausages and bacon from their Rare Breed Middle White pigs.
Longbourn is a rare breed smallholding with a conservation flock of Soay sheep, peacocks and “Nelly” the Tamworth who likes to be fed the odd digestive biscuit or custard cream on a visit around the smallholding.
We have had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house, enjoying all of the comforts and the gastronomical delights! Breakfasts and evening meals were delicious with every care taken to deliver exactly what we wanted. We had such a lovely time in this idyllic setting, well-looked after by this hard-working couple. Thank you.
We could not have asked for a more beautiful start to our marriage - thank you for being so accommodating and making our stay so special!
If God had paradise in mind, Longbourn is a pretty good example. Our meeting with Jane & Roland is one to remember for a long time. Home away from home, in every detail. Enchanted rooms, as in the rest of the house. Four pets inside and Nelly the pig in the yard make you even more at home. We all fell in love with this house and hosts. Thanks for a great weekend!
What can we say? Two days of the most comfortable and welcoming stay with every need catered for and more besides (the breakfast - supreme English and beautifully presented). Jane & Roland are superb hosts, so friendly and genial - ditto the four dogs! We will recommend this to all our friends and we hope to be back in the future.
Longbourn is a hidden gem - it is located in the most beautiful English countryside. The hospitality, accommodation and food - oh, those English breakfasts! Wow are superb. We greatly enjoyed our time here and look forward to returning soon.
