In our grounds and gardensWe’ve got over 160 acres of gardens for you to explore – that’s as big as one-and-a-half Vatican Cities, but the similarity ends there. Ours feature hilly parkland, pristine gardens, sheep-strewn farmland and our sparkling lakes. With so much to see, we’ve hand-picked three of the best things to visit within Cricket St Thomas’s grounds.
Cricket Old HousePerhaps more famous for its role as Grantleigh Manor in ‘To The Manor Born’, Cricket St Thomas house has been standing in one form or another for around 600 years. We’ve kept its history intact while also letting you experience it with a spot of tea and cake.
The Old Wildlife ParkNow replaced with immaculately sculpted gardens, woodland walks, and grassy parkland, look closely as you explore and you might just be able to make out where the elephants and camels once roamed.
