From the time of King John (1166 — 1216) there has been an estate at Crofton. In its heyday the estate featured Crofton Hall itself with adjacent stable block, walled garden, formal gardens and subterranean icehouse, Coachman’s house, stone entrance archway with gatehouses, deer park and lake; not to mention several estate farms and other houses.

Though Crofton Hall itself fell into disuse around the turn of the 19th century, the rest of the estate still bears testimony to the history that unfolded there. Many of the buildings you will use in your stay with us are part of the estate.
