Croan House and Estate

The earliest parts of Croan House date from before 1743 when the house was extended and the facade was added by the Shirley family.

The impressive entrance and driveway, with a broad bank of lawn to either side and avenue of mature Lime trees, lead to a gravel forecourt to the front of the house. A Duck pond, Boules court and games area are located between the House and the cottages for our guests' enjoyment.

Croan enjoys splendid surroundings with the Castle Morres demesne just next door. The estate is now a Forest Park of almost 2,000 acres. Both conifer and native broadleaf species can be found with some specimen trees dating back to the original estate gardens. A driven pheasant shoot takes place from November to January each year.

There are 5 self catering cottages on the estate which enjoy a wonderful setting on the grounds of the old house with views over the old walled garden and the wooded estate next door.
