Stayed here overnight in January very comfortable spacious rooms feels very exclusive great breakfast and the evening meal looked very tempting but was catered for by relatives on this occasion so hope to return and try the cuisine during the summer.

We stayed for a romantic night to get away from it all and although we found the hotel tucked away, the entrance was poorly signed and somewhat shabby and we ended up trying to drive into a farm yard. HOWEVER, first impressions aside (looks rundown outside and the thatched roof is in serious trouble) inside we got a nice welcome.... More

We picked this hotel as a base for visiting locally and wanted something different to the mainstream hotels. It could not have been better. Plenty of old world charm, fantastic food and hosts Brian and Gina were welcoming and lovely. You may well need a Satnav to find the hotel depending upon which way you arrive from as it is... More

On a rainy afternoon in August we needed a place to stay to break the journey. We found Barton Cross. It is a lovely quirky place. A thatched roof hotel set in a quiet area with many lanes and paths to follow. The staff are lovely and the place is clean and welcoming. The bar area is superb. More spirits... More

Set in the Devonshire countryside, this small hotel comprises two sixteenth century cob and thatched cottages which have been tastefully restored to retain all of their character together with a more recent extension which is in keeping with them. It is easily accessible situated in a lane about 1 mile from the Exeter to Tavistock road and there is an... More

Difficult not to like the place ........agree with most that the dining experience is very good with an extensive affordable wine list and affable atmosphere. Again with others I feel the bed and breakfast is overpriced.....the breakfast is very good but the rooms are crying out for introduction facility wise into the present day .Overall at these prices I would...

This is a fantastic find! When asked for the vegetarian option - we didn't get the usual humdrum risotto - but were amazed by the inventive selection! We initially booked as they accommodate dogs and it isn't very far from Exeter. Will definitely be visiting again.

Off the beaten track, but well worth setting the sat nav for your visit. This quaint thatched hotel provided great food in attractive surroundings. Our room was large and well equipped, and had its own patio.

After years of eating at Barton Cross we had another birthday celebration here last night. The chef is wonderfully imaginative - the food is always superb. Add to this a lovely ambience and an always-friendly welcome - and you just can't go wrong. We have eaten in many restaurants in the region, nationally and abroad and the Barton Cross experience...
