We are delighted to introduce Cross Lane House, the newest small boutique hotel to open in Somerset on north Exmoor. This 16th-century building is full of charm and character and can be found in Allerford nestling at the foot of the ancient Selworthy Woods.  Dining at Cross Lane House is a treat and the small seasonal menu showcases the very best of Exmoor’s outstanding seasonal produce.  


There is plenty to do and see around Cross Lane House.  Exmoor Zoo is within easy reach as is the West Somerset Steam Railway which takes you through 22 miles of stunning Somerset coast and countryside.   There are quite a few National Trust house and gardens to enjoy during the warmer months including the Royal Horticultural Society gardens at Rosemoor.  Exmoor National Park is one of Britain's special treasures; whether you are looking to go horse riding, hiking or cycling through the valleys and woods there is an excellent path network to follow.


A sumptuous breakfast, mouthwatering lunch, relaxed dinner and traditional afternoon tea fit for a king is all to be expected at Cross Lane House, not forgetting a great selection of wines.  Head out for the day to explore or find a spot by the river and take with you a magnificent picnic prepared in a wicker hamper basket.
