We are delighted to be featuring Warner Cricket St. Thomas for the first time in 2019. As well as enjoying the fabulous grounds of the hotel, we offer two excursions to Sidmouth and Seaton, and the glorious Montacute House.
We travel west breaking our journey before heading onwards after lunch to Cricket St Thomas. Arriving mid-afternoon there is time to explore before dinner and the nights entertainment!
Today we head to the coast, and the regency town of Sidmouth. Poet Laureate John Betjeman described Sidmouth as ‘A town caught still in a timeless charm’. There are beautiful gardens, clean beaches and specialist independent shops. Later we head to Seaton, where you will have the opportunity to go on the Seaton Tramway (payable locally).
A masterpiece of Elizabethan Renaissance architecture and design. With its towering walls of glass, glow of ham stone and surrounding garden, Montacute House it is a place of beauty and wonder.
Sir Edward Phelips was the visionary force and money behind the creation of this masterpiece, which was completed in 1601. Built by skilled craftsman using local ham stone under the instruction of William Arnold, master mason, the house was a statement of wealth, ambition and showmanship.
Take time to explore the house and the gardens.
Sadly we travel home today, making a stop enroute to arrive home in the late afternoon.
Warner Cricket St Thomas is one of the most famous hotels in their collection. 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.
It is a classic county house, set in splendid parkland, with colourful gardens, lakes and a unique woodland area. As usual there is plenty to keep you occupied including a leisure club, spa and numerous activities.
