Reviewed October 1, 2011

A bit of a disappointment, a mould smelling room, very small bathroom and the first night we had noise from the room next door, (party was going on till 3 am) Changed room next night, that was better, clean bright, but shower should be bigger, We get a discount because of the first night experience, we paid 100 £ instead of 120 £ for two nights, breakfast was alright, but not great. Sausage, hash browns, eggs and bacon from Tesco (where are the fresh eggs and those tasty things that we used to get from a local butcher and hash browns aren’t that difficult to make) Sorry Sally, you’re a nice Lady, but you can do better
Goed: Niet goed:to close to the street, if you are in the front room

We were very disappointed to find that out of the 3 rooms booked, only 1 was ensuite. We felt that the advertising was very misleading in this respect. The situation on a corner of two roads is not ideal, and generally we felt that it was not good value for money. On the positive side our 'in house' supper was good.

The house looks good from afar. Dont be fooled. The kitchen is in need of a good clean. As we booked for self catering we found we could not use the facilities in the kitchen, ie the cooker or the frying pan as this was not clean from previous guests.
The bedroom was clean and tidy but very tired. Whole house needs updating and we found something much cheaper and clean for the duration of our stay. Would not recommend this as a three star as we have visited many lower rated B&Bs over the years with much better facilities and cleanliness.

After a little searching, found this B & B near Scotch Corner as we were travelling north for a wedding.

After a long journey it was great to be able to have a home cooked meal served by the owner Sally. Berakfast was also good with a wide choice.

Our room could have done with a litle upgrade as I do not think it is good to see wires from the TV and lights loose, but these are only minor quibbles.

All in all a good value B & B so near to the A1, yet away from the noise and a much better experience and better value than the chain one there!

Having free wi-fi was a bonus.

Very convenient for breaking a journey from the south coast to Scotland, Lucy Cross is situated on a minor road that did not require a diversion as it cut across a corner on our route from the A1 to the A68. Sally, a retired jockey, provided a warm welcome with tea and cakes and the accomodation was very comfortable and well appointed. The bonus, for a B&B, was the generous three course meal including a roast which most residents took advantage of. No need to search for good food on unfamiliar territory.

Lucy Cross Farm is the best place i have stayed in the UK . The rooms are beautiful and spacious. Sally is the perfect host, with a quiet welcoming manner, that immdiately puts you at your ease. All this with great traditional breakfasts and free wireless internet connection makes the price great value for money.
