The village of Cross is a small picturesque Somerset Village which nestles in the lee of Wavering Down and Crook Peak, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The property backs onto open countryside and Wavering Down. The village itself has a popular Public House and is close by to the charming Market Town of Axbridge which in many ways has changed little, retaining a number of early listed buildings in the Square and lining the main streets. There are shops and places to eat and drink including: The Post Office, Pharmacy, a Co-op Mini Market, The Lamb Inn, The Oak House Hotel, Primary School, Doctors Surgery and COE Church. There are a range of leisure activities in the area including: Unrivalled horse riding and walking on the Mendip Hills, sailing and fishing on the Cheddar Reservoir and Chew Valley Lakes and Dry Slope Skiing in Churchill. Local attractions include: Cheddar Gorge and Caves, Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury Tor, the Cathedral City of Wells and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare. There is an excellent choice of Primary and Secondary Schooling available including the very popular Fairlands Middle School, Kings of Wessex Academy in Cheddar and private schooling in Sidcot and Wells. Cross is well situated for the commuter and is convenient to Bristol, Bath Wells and Weston-super-Mare. There are mainline railway connections at Weston-super-Mare, Yatton and Backwell providing access to Bristol Temple Meads, London Paddington and other major towns and cities. Access to the M5 Motorway network is available at junction 21 St Georges and 22 Edithmead and Bristol International Airport is within a short drive.


From Bristol heading South West on the Bristol Road (A38) enter the village of Churchill. At the traffic lights proceed straight ahead. Follow the road for approximately 1.5 miles passing through the Hamlet of Star. After a further mile proceed past Sidcot School on the left-hand side and drop down the hill to a set of traffic lights. Continue straight ahead onto Bridgwater Road (A38) for approximately 1.5 miles. At the bottom of the long hill, filter right and turn onto Old Coach Road passing The New Inn into the village of Cross. The property can be found a short distance along on the right-hand side.
