A SMALL INDEPENDENT
IN THE EXMOOR NATIONAL PARK
Following the Governments recent announcement, we are delighted to be taking bookings from 17th May and we continue to offer guests a flexible cancelation policy for peace of mind.
Nestled within the 12,000 acre National Trust Holnicote Estate within the Exmoor National Park, Cross Lane House is a charming Grade II listed building that showcases many historic and original features,
which can be dated back to around 1545.
We took over Cross Lane House in November 2019, and although having battled with a year of change and uncertainty, the Hotel has gone on to achieve a number of awards and wonderful reviews
from the likes of The Telegraph.
Our vision for Cross Lane House is for it to be a place where guests can come, relax, enjoy
a friendly hospitality service, some good food and wonderful scenery - whilst not thinking about too much else!
We would love to host you during your time in Exmoor, and with a good knowledge of what the area has to offer, we're on hand to share with you some of our favourite activities, and places to visit.
We hope to see you soon

At just 693 square kilometres, Exmoor is one of the UK’s smallest National Parks - but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in beauty and variety.
The area is known for is breathtaking landscapes and vast stretch of the picturesque West Somerset and North Devon coast line. Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor, is a short distance away and well worth a visit, as well as Selworthy Beacon which is easily accessible from Allerford. The medieval village of Dunster is just a 10 minute drive away, and if you can spare the time - a trip to Dunster Castle is a must!
As well as plenty of wonderful walking routes, Exmoor is wonderful to explore on bike, horse back and kayak too.. There are some wonderful local activity providers with a variety of things on offer, allowing you to make the most of the area during
your visit to this beautiful corner of the country.
It’s an area that just keeps on giving - something worth experiencing for yourself!

PHYSICALLY DISTANCED, NOT SOCIALLY DISTANCED
The nature of Hospitality and what we do revolves around being sociable. Whilst we are putting in place a variety of 'social distancing measures' to reduce the risk of Coronavirus, we don't want to be socially distant from you - which is why we would rather use the term 'physically distant'. A better fit all round!
