To help you make a memorable holiday in East Devon at Long Chimney



After spending 35 years in South Bucks running my own business in industry, my family and I moved to this delightful part of Devon to find a different life style, we have and we all love it.


We opened the Well & Flint  Cottage in December 2006 after completely renovating them, we are graded 4 & 5 Star plus a GOLD award for Stable Cottage which was opened in 2009, this award is given to the very best accommodation in England with only the top 20% of Five Star properties achieving this award,  our cottages were last inspected  May 2021  by Visit Britain/ AA and we retained all our gradings, this is your only quality guarantee in the self catering sector, we are also proud to announce  that we achieved a GOLD award again from Green Tourism Business Scheme.


These grades are difficult to achieve and clearly prove our commitment to the environment and quality,  everything  is constantly monitored, our cleaners even leave feedback forms to constantly monitor there cleaning quality,  we check everything in great detail between clients leaving and new ones arriving. We will  accept your grocery order from Tesco , Sainsbury's or Waitrose  and put  the items requiring refrigeration away for you, so you can start to enjoy your holiday as soon as you arrive, why start your holiday with a visit to a supermarket ?.  See delivery times.


Our Cottages and house are set in 20 acres of our own land where you will see our horses grazing and an abundance of wildlife, we are members of Devon Wildlife Trust which is the only organisation exclusively concerned with all aspects of wildlife conservation in Devon. The gardens are maintained constantly so that you will enjoy your stay to the full at Long Chimney, just think you could be enjoying a nice relaxing time in your cottage and if you have children, they can be enjoying themselves in the games room just a short distance away.


There is also  a GAMES ROOM, included free of charge  for the exclusive use of our guests. Wi-Fi is  available in all cottages.  All  our Mattresses & Pillows are  Hypoallergenic / Anti Allergy products, crisp sheets and fluffy towels await.  There is also a good selection of board games in all cottages,   please leave the BBQ and patio clean  when you leave.


In conclusion , we have put everything that we found missing in cottage accommodation we rented as tourists to Devon, into Long Chimney  Cottages, that's why we invite you to join us at Long Chimney for a truly enjoyable break. Please look at our past clients testimonials on Trip Adviser, they speak for themselves. The cottages have been fully redecorated  carpets have also been cleaned throughout September 2021  to maintain the high quality we offer.
