- In the grounds of a country inn in Exmoor National Park
- A 15-minute drive from Watchet and 30 from Taunton and Minehead
- Pub classics, evening specials and carvery night at the restaurant
Spectacular national park views, local eats and a traditional English country inn? If that’s ticking your boxes, scurry along to Ralegh's Cross Inn, an adults-only site 15 minutes’ drive from the Somerset coastal town of Watchet.
In the grounds of the Ralegh's Cross Inn, the site is – as one might imagine – exceptionally well placed when hunger strikes. It’s a short amble from pitches to the restaurant, where chefs cook up local ingredients for pub classics, light lunches, evening specials and (on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays) carvery spreads.
Of course, there’s more to travel than the food, and the site’s in a top spot for adventures beyond tickling taste buds too. Just inside the south eastern edge of Exmoor National Park, it’s well suited to energetic explorers who are keen to venture out on hikes and bikes, and there’s bike rental available 35 minutes away.
For hols spent by the sea, it’s an easy 15 minutes to the nearest (pebble) beach in Watchet, and half an hour to the sands of Minehead. Once everyone tires of splashing about, a return to site should prove calming: soak up views towards Dunkery Beacon (Exmoor’s highest point), Bristol Channel and the Welsh hills.
To generate better results:
- Choose the 'Multiple units per pitch' filter in the search results

- Click the button ‘Make another booking like this’ on the confirmation page to easily rebook.
- Ask to be sited together in the ‘Special requests’ box on the booking form.

Wood definitely go back.

Make the most of Exmoor stays by signing up immediately for an Exmoor Wildlife Safari, clambering into the back of a Land Rover for guided excursions through the park, keeping eyes peeled for deer and the rare Exmoor ponies. There are no long treks to get going either, as the tour guides will pick guests up at Dunster, Dulverton or Exford, all within about 25 minutes’ drive.
Get a closer look at some of the area’s wildlife (as well as some more exotic specimens) at Tropiquaria, a small Art Deco zoo in a former BBC radio transmitter station 10 minutes from base, or travel a little further (30 minutes) to the Exmoor Pony Centre to learn about the native ponies and even take a ride in the park.
If interest in watery getaways was piqued by beach days in Minehead and Watchet, but less salt would be preferable, head along to Wimbleball Lake or Clatworthy Reservoir (both within 15 minutes) – the first for birdwatching, trout fishing and lessons in windsurfing, sailing, canoeing and rowing, and the second for pretty scenery, boat hire and fishing.
Dip a toe into the past by visiting the Museum of Somerset and the military and cricket museums in Taunton, half an hour away, then dive further in with trips to Dunster Castle, Fyne Court and Knightshayes, all within 35 minutes of base. Prefer to finish hols on a celebratory note? Stumble over to Yearlstone Vineyard (40 minutes) for a tipple or two.
