The scene of much of the famous TV comedy, To The Manor Born, Cricket St. Thomas was also frequently visited by Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton. This classic country house is set in splendid parkland, with colourful gardens, lakes, and a unique woodland area.   

The hotel provides extensive entertainment, including nightly live performances, and excellent dining venues, including The Granary which is set in a pretty walled garden. Nestled within a 160-acre estate, there’s always the invitation for relaxing strolls in the landscaped gardens and around the lakes and through woodland in the grounds. Inside, too, the Orangery and tea rooms offer elegant settings for afternoon tea, or for simply sitting back with great company or a good book.
