Use your imagination to best describe us; a small hotel, Luxury Bed & Breakfast; Boutique Guest Accommodation. Whatever you decide upon, Spears Cross offers quality accommodation on Exmoor. Our award winning accommodation has been described as the ultimate bolthole, romantic getaway or summer retreat.

Set in the medieval village of Dunster, nestled amongst Exmoor’s rolling hills, Spears Cross lies at the foot of Dunster Castle.

The house, built in 1460, boasts many 15th century features and is one of the most atmospheric places to stay in Dunster. Spears Cross’ idyllic location makes it perfect for walking, horse riding, mountain biking or shooting.

If that all sounds too energetic, then it is the perfect setting for discovering the beautiful Exmoor countryside by car, taking the West Somerset Steam Train or simply walking around Dunster and visiting its dramatic Castle.

What Makes Us Special

Spears Cross offers the type of room quality you would expect in a good quality Country House Hotel. We have added to this the personal service and attention to detail we would expect if we were staying away.

In 2009 Spears Cross won the South West Tourism’s Excellence Award, beating off some leading lights in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Somerset. We were invited to judge the following year’s awards and have put our experiences to good use. Spears Cross is better now than when we won in 2009! This is bourne out by the highly rated and successful Trip Advisor. We are a Winner in both the 2013 & 2014 Traveller’s Choice Awards and with far less than 1% of accommodation providers gaining a recognition that’s quite an achievement.. Our guests have voted for us. We are flattered.

The four en-suite rooms are of a generous size and one is a suite. All rooms boast premium quality Relyon Super King Size, 6 feet wide Beds, quality Panasonic flat screen tv and Bose Music systems.
