Ralegh's Cross Inn: Great site, nice and quite.

General

  • 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.

    Easy to find, plenty of room, fairly flat pitches. Staff were friendly and made us feel welcome and were helpful. The Inn itself was also welcoming with great selection of drinks and food. The portion size of food was plentiful and we loved the all you can eat breakfast. Washing up facility hasn't yet been plumbed in but we managed so not even making that a dislike.

    The site itself was very quiet when we were there and the gentleman who met us and showed us our pitch was very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    The toilets at the back of the pub were ok but it was obvious that they were not being cleaned as empty glasses there on Thursday afternoon were still there on Friday morning. The showers in a separate part of the site were disgusting and again it was obvious they were not being cleaned.

    The surrounding area was interesting

    Disliked: 

    The facilities were minimal. Fair enough, but they were filthy. Someone should introduce them to a bottle of bleach.
    The basic shower and toilet block should be knocked down and rebuilt because it will never get clean enough and 2 showers and 2 Toilets in one container is just not enough. The pub benefits from the guests so they should treat the guests better.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

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.
