Accommodation Description:

Although the elegant mansion of Cricket StThomas is avowedly Regency in style the present house was designed by the neo-Classicist Sir John Soane and set within glorious landscaped gardens based on a design by Capability Brown. The Manors proud history actually predates 1086. Since its rebuilding in 1820, Cricket has remained virtually untouched, its integrity as one of Englands most cherished stately homes completely intact.

Uncompromised too is the nearby 12th century parish church of St Thomas, with its Walled Garden, rare Sicilian chestnut font and brocade cloth which adorned the 1953 Coronation altar. Such nobility attends the estates entire tradition. Following the stewardship of various notable medieval families, the 18th century saw Cricket forge maritime links with the Hoods, the Bridports and the Nelsons.

Today, you neednt travel far to the sea; the charming fishing village of Lyme Regis and the dramatic Heritage Beach are just 30 minutes away. Make sure you spend some time in our Wildlife Park (extra costs apply) 500 rare and endangered species from around the world. There is also a full fitness studio with swimming pool, tropicarium and sauna.

Cricket St Thomas enjoys stunning vistas, and gardens of historic note. Mature yews, maples and cedars have been carefully preserved. It was under one of these Lady Emma Hamilton and Lord Nelson met for their romantic trysts - visit Lord Nelsons seat overlooking one of the spectacular views.

On a Warner Leisure Hotels short break theres live entertainment every night with breakfast, three course dinner and accommodation all included in the price. Please note all our breaks are for adults only. All members of the party must be over 21 years of age.
