I really wanted to give this bed and breakfast more stars because the people were very lovely, however, the facilities were I'm afraid, lacking. The Southern Cross is a stunning, old property and yes, it is like stepping back in time. We stayed in a spacious double room with en-suite shower and toilet, and below is a summary of our... More

There was one thing i would have loved to try but didn't have time was there afternoon cream tea which looked very nice but no time.The cost at £30... More

Stayed here for one night with a dog, very pleased to get accomodation for bank holiday weekend, comfortable with delicious breakfast, very relaxed atmosphere, busy noisy road but good central location

Our first B&B stay in England and it was so typically English with the Thatched room and dark oak beams. Exactly as we had seen on "Escape to the Country". Our welcome was a bit flustered as it was a week end and the tea room was doing a roaring trade with the cream teas. Our room was quite small... More

I hope I am not doing an injustice to this B&B, but I just found the welcome, the room, the facilities just very average. The bed was very small but comfortable enough - being positioned right next to a road didn't help the situation. What really got me was the very lackluster welcome we recieved upon checking in - but... More

This lovely, thatched building with its delightful rooms that are both clean and welcoming. The most amazing breakfast, once eaten there will be no need to eat again till evening -- all cooked fresh to your liking. The marmalade is a must.

We were looking for somewhere last minute & after searching for hours finally found this lovely little B&B on lastminute.com. The service was fantastic & the room housed me my partner & 4 year old comfortably. The breakfast was lovely & a great size. The house itself is beautifully kept in it's rural surroundings with a stunning garden perfect for... More

we were welcomed & shown to our room (enjoying the unevenness of the floors & walls!) lovely large room & comfy bed.Breakfast was superb with "quality ingredients". We could choose exactly what we wanted & it was all freshly cooked.Except for a small problem with the shower - everything was excellent . Well done "uncle Ken" !!

A group of us stayed here while completing Rock Solid at Escot park - and its location makes it perfect for that. The building is a true old English country cottage with tiny doors, wonky walls and floors and crooked beams. Its completely full of character. We had an en-suite room which was a little noisy when you used the... More

On arrival we were welcomed and shown to our room. The room was furnished in a cottage style and beautifully clean. We had an en-suite room. The shower was also very clean. The bed was comfy and my husband and I slept well. There were also two comfy chairs and a modern television. We also had tea and coffee making... More
