Enter our competitio­n to win a twonight stay at Cross Lane House, an intimate boutique hotel tucked away in picturesqu­e Allerford, ideally located to explore Exmoor and the South West Coast Path. Nestled within the 12,000-acre National Trust Holnicote Estate within the Exmoor National Park, Cross Lane House is a beautiful Grade II-listed building that showcases many historic and original features, from the centuries-old notches in the walls to the handsome stone replace, dating to 1545.

Cross Lane House has three en-suite bedrooms, all individual­ly and lovingly designed with comfort and relaxation in mind.

Soothing colours, cosy textiles and homespun touches such as fresh owers, books and retro radios make the rooms a real home from home.

Breakfast at Cross Lane House is a serious affair! Freshly brewed coffee and tea, fruit, homemade granola, pastries and a hot breakfast set you up for a day of exploring.

The cosy bar, although small in size, is big in West Country character. It serves a range of local spirits, ales, locally crafted cider, cocktails and a selection of wine. The prize includes a bottle of wine and a West Country cheeseboar­d for two.

Cross Lane House is in an exceptiona­l location for exploring Exmoor. Idyllic Allerford has a blacksmith’s forge and a packhorse bridge. Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor’s highest point, and Selworthy Beacon are nearby, while the medieval village of Dunster – a must-see – is just 10 minutes away. www.crosslaneh­
