Cricket St Thomas
Cricket St Thomas, Somerset
Chard, Somerset, TA20 4DD
Sitting idly in the midst of spectacular show gardens and with historic ties to the famous maritime figure, Horatio Lord Nelson, Cricket St Thomas Hotel is an elegant country mansion designed in the Regency style by the celebrated neo-classical architect, Sir john Sloane.
The lovely old building is perfectly complimented by large acreages of listed gardens best explored on foot or via the dedicated garden train, while the rolling hills of Somerset frame an already exquisite rural picture. Amongst the highlights of this immaculate 19th-century stately home are the individually furnished Historic Rooms that have ably retained the sophisticated panache of the period with spacious four-poster beds, luxurious finishes and sweeping views of the grounds.
