Last summer we enjoyed a wonderful lunch, in the sunshine, outside, in the beautiful courtyard. The tables were exquisitely set and the meal was first rate. Now we have enjoyed afternoon tea - a sumptuous meal which rivalled anything in London - we sat by a roaring fire and ate sandwiches - tiny cakes - scones and much else. A wide choice of teas and full and hot teapots appeared at regular intervals. Andrew, our host, was charming, and nothing was too much trouble. We can't wait to go back. Dinner next time.

Great place, attention to detail was second to none. Our only problem was the noise of the cars on the road. We are use to living away from the road. Otherwise, wow! what a place, beautiful setting. The meals we had were gorgeous and the porridge was to die for!!

Room Tip: Choose the Ackland Suite, we will next time, slightly off from the road.

We stayed here on Friday having seen the amazing Trip Advisor reviews and we absolutely loved it. As in previous reviews everything was first class with a wonderful welcome with tea and delicious chocolate cake, a sumptuous bedroom, superb dinner and fabulous breakfast.
So few hotels manage to provide such excellent service without being obtrusive. Andrew and Max could provide a Masterclass to hoteliers who wish to reach their standards.
We felt at home immediately and can't wait to go back. We followed one of the walks, which are provided, which is set in stunning countryside.
Thoroughly recommended.

We have just had a faultless stay at the most most wonderful small country house hotel. Cooking of the highest order with ingredients from local organic suppliers and charming wine list. Breakfasts with home made preserves, homebaked breads, freshly pressed apple juice and smoked haddock and eggs. Nothing was too much trouble and Frida our little dog was treated like a princess. This is a boutique experience par excellence near Porlock in Somerset with scenery, walking and history all at your fingertips. It may seem a little expensive but the best always is and represents awesome value. What a find!! We will be back.
Try Cross lane for that special break and experience pampered luxury!!

Room Tip: The best suite is call FRY

Many thanks for your kind comments. We work hard to get the little things right such as the selection of homemade jams, breads and working with local, and where possible, organic suppliers and we are delighted that this was noted during your stay. We also recognise that Frida is also an important part of your stay and we are delighted that the break was enjoyed by all. The team very much look forward to welcoming you all back.
