Grantleigh Manor gets a 300K pound facelift

35-42581Main BannerThe historic gardens featured in the classic British comedy, To the Manor Born, was recently the beneficiary of a 300,000 pound restoration. The Cricket House country mansion in Cricket St Thomas, the instantly recognizable setting from the British comedy that starred Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles and, only recently, turned into a hotel, now has the lawns that only a fforbes-Hamilton would approve of.

Ian Gyte, general manager of Cricket St Thomas hotel, said in this Telegraph interview, ”The new lakes and gardens will be a stunning testament to the long heritage of Cricket St Thomas whilst taking the gardens firmly into the 21st century.”

Visitors will share the newly renovated gardens and mansion with tamarind monkeys living ”free-range” in the trees and the Cricket St Thomas’s famous lemurs.
