Why we love it...

Good service, beautiful location

The Place

Cross Lane House has stood on the same corner of village Allerford for more than 500 years – but you’d be forgiven for not realising this. Recent owners Max and Andrew have carefully renovated the late medieval building, turning it into a striking up-to-date hotel.

Set back from the road by a charmingly haphazard stonewall and a trim, winding footpath, the exterior shows Max and Andrew’s attention to detail. Wherever possible they have retained the houses original features – we especially like the dining room where the massive stone lintel over the fireplace and original timber panelling are good examples of their old-and-new style.

Upstairs the four generously sized bedrooms are decorated in country house style – each room has the kind of thought that we look for. The neutral tones are complemented with floral splashes, adding colour to an otherwise pastel approach.

The location – in Exmoor National Park – gives you access to some of the most beautiful walking and hiking routes in south-west England. It is also close to the Coleridge Way; a 36-mile (58 km) footpath noted as one of the UKs best autumnal walks.
