Cricket St Thomas


This traditional country house is surrounded by beautiful parkland, complete with colourful gardens, lakes, and a distinctive wooded region. The hotel offers a wide range of entertainment options, including nightly live shows and outstanding dining.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Cricket St Thomas?

Imagine. You have the entire day ahead of you. It's yours to do with as you like. Swim in the pool or stroll through the beautiful historic grounds. Take a snooker game, a yoga session, or simply go for a long stroll and breathe in the fresh country air. The hotel provide singing and dance workshops, as well as trips and treks to interesting locations, or you may simply sit back, relax, and do nothing.

Each room has free Wi-Fi, towels, a TV, a hairdryer, a safe, comfortable chairs with reading lights, and tea and coffee-making facilities with cookies are among the nice-to-have amenities.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Chad area?

Somerset and the countryside go together like Cheddar cheese and Somerset cider, both of which are genuine Somerset products. Cricket St Thomas is fortunate to have its own magnificent parkland, colourful gardens, lakes, and peaceful wooded area, but a short journey outside the grounds will reveal not one, not two, but three recognised Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – Blackdown Hills, Dorset, and East Devon. 

Add in the fact that the hotel is only half an hour from Charmouth beach and surrounded by Somerset's famous rolling hills and attractive villages... Lord Nelson spent a lot of time here, and it's simple to understand why.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

A brand-new menu for 2021 in the main restaurant. Following the seasons, the focus is on fresh ingredients and British favourites expertly reinvented and served to the table.

With chefs focusing on the nation's favourite foods, the pull of bold British flavours is unmistakable. Breakfast is as big as it gets, and it's meant to be enjoyed slowly. At supper, the emphasis is on classic pairings, but always with the day's renowned roast, as well as desserts and cheese platters that appear almost too good to eat.
