History of The Longcrosss
Named after the ancient stone standing at the East gate which once guided pilgrims to a nearby monastery at Roscarrock. The Hotel is a converted Victorian gentlemen’s residence. Purchased by James and Sharon Bishop in January 2005 the hotel has been beautifully refurbished with all the rooms receiving brand new bathrooms and interior design. Some of the rooms have glorious sea-views and many have the generous proportions, high ceilings and detailed features so favoured by the Victorians.
Located adjacent to the hotel are the Long Cross Victorian Gardens, the only public gardens on the North Cornish coast, and the subject of a television feature because of their unusual aspects. The gardens remain in the original Victorian garden layout and they retain their original splendour. Visitors often say that they have never seen a garden resembling the Long Cross and this is mainly because the gardens were constructed primarily to overcome the difficulties of the local climate.
