It's all about location


Langdon Court's location in the South Hams countryside is its main draw. The hotel is just six miles from Plymouth City Centre and around a mile from Wembury Beach. There is a private track from the hotel grounds that joins the South Hams Coastal Path.

The hotel is set in 10 acres of beautiful woodlands and has a delightful Jacobean garden that is nicely maintained and would make a lovely background for wedding photos. A lovely gazebo overlooks the lakes and vineyard (yes, the hotel has its own vineyard!) and is one more beautiful setting suited for photography.

Room


We stayed in Room 30 which is one of the King Suites and it was fabulous. The boutique style room was very spacious and well-appointed. It had a four-poster bed and custom designed en-suite bathroom facilities. Amenities in the room included complimentary hospitality tray, free Wi-Fi internet access, large flat screen TV and plenty of seating. The bathroom was beautiful with a roll top bath, a walk-in shower and superb heating. Toiletries from Molton Brown were stocked as were fluffy bathrobes and towels.

Although the room was large, the heating was efficient and we enjoyed a good night's sleep.

Dining


The restaurant at Langdon Court has won many awards and we had high hopes from the food/service and we were not disappointed. Our starter of Langdon Beetroot with Pickled Quince and Spinach was very tasty - lovely textures and flavours. My main course of Squash Gnocchi, Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, Devon Blue Cheese and Spinach was equally delicious and filling. My husband enjoyed a Wild Mushroom and Pearl Barley Risotto. For desserts we chose Rhubarb Parfait, Elderflower, Granita and Rhubarb Jelly and Chocolate and Salted Caramel Fondant with White Chocolate Sorbet - both were absolutely delicious.

Breakfast the next day was good too. There as a selection of fresh fruits, homemade muesli and granola, apricots and prunes, natural yoghurt and red fruit compote. A choice of cooked options and tea/coffee were also available. Our cooked breakfast was perfect - fresh and well-seasoned.

We enjoyed the dining experience at the restaurant. The ambience was casual and relaxed and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Full marks to the chef/s!

Final Thoughts


The hotel is in a great location. The room was nice and well appointed. The food was good and so was the service. Overall, the hotel had a very relaxed and quiet atmosphere which we liked. If you are looking for a weekend away near the coast, Langdon Court could be a good option.
