The Southern Cross was originally a Devonshire Long House, standing as it has for centuries within it's own wooded grounds. Though recently refurbished to provide modern facilities for the comfort of our guests, it retains all it's olde world charm.
Step back in time as you enter the enchanting, walled, country garden, where you may dine at your leisure from bone china tableware, among tall scented flowers, with a backcloth of stately poplar, eucalyptus, maple and spruce.
We have 5 bed and breakfast bedrooms, twin, double, single en-suite all with courtesy tray & TV.
Our inclusive breakfast is served in the 15th century dining room or garden. Either wholesome English or Continental selection.
Relax in the guest lounge, quietly read, watch a film, play games - all provided.
We serve Cream Teas, lunches and snacks throughout the day and are licenced. Pubs and restaurants providing evening meals are close by.
Ideal for exploring, Southern Cross is located in the Otter Valley, an AONB, within the Jurassic coastline. Close by are the seaside towns of Sidmouth, Beer, Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth, with wonderfully diverse beeches.
Rising from the Otter valley are open heaths & commons with RSPB reserves and rolling tree-topped hills, providing a wealth of wonderful countryside walking.
We are less than 1 hours drive to Dartmoor, Exmoor, Dorset and Cornwall.
11 miles to the vibrant Cathedral city of Exeter with the Quayside, Arts, Theatre, Museums & Galleries.
