We found this hidden gem a couple of years ago when our child started her first year at the university and always choose to stay there when we go back. Brian and Gina are the most wonderful hosts and their staff are lovely people too. We really enjoy this small quaint thatched hotel, which is in the middle of the... More

Very helpful sorting a taxi to Exeter and accommodating our late return. Clean , quiet and comfortable and a v generous breakfast .... Next time we will order poached egg and kipper to... More

This wonderful thatched cottage hotel has a charming & lovely feel to it. The rooms were clean & tidy & rather quaint & old fashioned which suited the surroundings. Had a lovely drink at the bar before going into dinner. We were blown away by the quality & thought that went into the food. We have eaten in many fine... More

This restaurant was a special treat for our family when exams were passed, birthdays or anniversaries. We had not visited for many years as family grew and moved, on his return from America my youngest son asked to have his 30th birthday celebrations back at Barton Cross. We were 9 in number and we were delighted to find nothing had... More

We are local to this gem and have dined there on numerous occasions. The food is always excellent and the vegetarian choices are different and very tasty. The management and staff are brilliant and the bar area is wonderful. Would recommend this restaurant, as it is a rare find compared to today's trend for 'chain' style eating places.

We have just spent a 3 night break at this hotel and enjoyed wonderful hospitality and great food...the breakfast was so filling....there was no room for lunch....not that we wanted to spoil our dinner by eating too much then. Great old fashioned wine list that had a grand choice of wines from many Countries including 5 No Beaujolais's that if... More

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
