Nestled in a corner of South Somerset between Dorset and Devon, located in a magnificent Somerset Valley is Warner’s Cricket St. Thomas. Set in 160 acres of countryside, this is the perfect base from which to discover historic Dorchester and the Regency resort of Lyme Regis. We include a visit to Forde Abbey, a former Cistercian monastery dating back to the early 12th century.
As well as a trip back in time with a relaxing ride on the East Somerset Railway heritage steam train through the beautiful Mendip Countryside.
Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.
