Cross House is a Grade II Listed village house with a stone barn which incorporates a garage on the ground floor and a studio flat on the first floor, comprising: living room, kitchenette, shower room and mezzanine bedroom. West Coker has easy access to both Yeovil and Sherborne.

Cross House is an attractive Grade II Listed detached house built of local Ham stone with a Welsh slate roof. The property has well-proportioned rooms and has retained many period features including open stone fireplaces in most rooms, window seats, working shutters, flagstone floors in the reception hall, snug and kitchen/breakfast room and 18th Century panelling in the dining room. Bought by the current owners in 2011, the house has been improved in many areas including a new kitchen and a new roof. On the ground floor the front door opens to the reception hall, which has a staircase rising to the first floor and doors on one side leading to the dining room and the drawing room, with a further door leading on to the sitting room. The drawing room is an especially elegant room with windows on two sides and French windows to the garden. On the other side of the hall flights of stone steps rise up to the cloakroom and to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a beamed ceiling. Beyond the kitchen is the rear lobby with a door leading to the snug and the laundry room. On the first there is a broad landing with doors off to 5 well-proportioned double bedrooms, most with open fireplaces and window seats, and 2 bathrooms.
The main area of garden is behind the house, with a stone terrace and small lawn bordering the house. Stone steps rise up from the parking area to a gravel path with flanking lavender borders to an area of lawn beyond, planted with a number of specimen trees.
