Quirky & quaint B&B with off-road parking. No wifi in the property & no phone signal, but that did make it peaceful. The road does run right past the property, but with ear plugs in (essential travel item as I do need quiet) I was able to sleep ok. Heavy duvet, sheet & throw was overkill, the place was warm...

This is a lovely B&B, beautiful inside and out, really old style. Our room was unique and the bed was very comfortable, we had a brilliant nights sleep here. The owner was very welcoming and was available for any queries any time we needed. Breakfast is from 8am but because we were heading off around 8:15am the owner advised that...

At £25 ppn geat value. The room had been recently painted . It had a good heater which my wife soon sussed out. In...

Lovely old thatched cottage, friendly owner, good location. We stayed for two nights as a birthday getaway, we came down to see the tar barrels at Ottery and needed somewhere near to the fun but not too close as it's mayhem and lasts all night! We paid about £65 per night and I would say really we felt that the...

Visited here on various occasions - have always had fabulous cream tea, great value, generous helpings of jam and cream as well as divine scones and absolutely friendly staff. A bit of a drive from our base at Lyme Regis, but well worth the effort ... Will definitely be returning .

First impressions of this cottage was dark and depressing. We were shown to our twin bedded room which was small, musty and looked like it needed a good clean. The shower was tiny and the bed linen very tired with linen headboards. We had travelled a long way and were very disappointed. We did not stay. On the positive side...

I always wanted to sleep in a thatched cottage and now I have. There are low ceilings, steep stairs and uneven walls - everything you would expect from a very old cottage. The rooms are basic but clean and you get free Bronte biscuits as well as tea, coffee and bottled water.

We have enjoyed staying at the Southern Cross very much. We received a warm welcome and so did our dog. He was made to feel part of the family. Our room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and well prepared. The attention paid to our needs was excellent. I was asked if I would prefer...

We can't comment on the B&B facilities, but as a cream tea stop - it is without doubt the best we have sampled in Devon! This is from a walking group who have visited very many over the years. The scones are huge and warm and cooked to perfection, the jam and clotted cream plentiful, tea in china cups and...

Stayed overnight with my son. Beautiful house but décor was very tired, and there was a weird smell - wet dog/musty smell everywhere. The shower was not powerful enough to wash my hair properly, and the toilet had a macerator which was very noisy. There was no wifi. The welcome was good, and the breakfast was nice.
