Meet the hosts
Bugsie and Bella, and their two children James and Emma moved to North Devon from Twickenham in September 2011 in search of the “good life” - great surf and a view of the sun setting over the sea. Along with their great friend Pam who agreed to work as their business partner they started their new life at Longlands.
Bugsie continues to work in London for most of the week but at weekends loves nothing better than to chop wood, mow fields and surf whilst Bella and Pam work creating luxurious camping in a beautiful setting to give you a holiday of a lifetime.
