The Lysaght Club

Mentioned in the Domesday Book, Old Cleeve is one of the most picturesque and historic villages in West Somerset, with the beautiful 12thC church of St. Andrew.

Old Cleeve itself consists of about 80 houses of which many are old thatched cottages, the main reason the village is so pretty. However the parish includes other communities and villages such as, Chapel Cleeve, Blue Anchor, Bilbrook and Washford.

In the 19th century the manor house and most of the land was acquired by Gerald Lysaght, an entrepreneur and philanthropist (and a patron of Sir Ernest Shackleton!).

One of the prettiest villages in Somerset.


The Club has been providing a social focus for local people for over ninety years. It was given to the village in 1923 by Gerald Lysaght.

We provide over 200 members with fun in the form of brunches, lunches, barbecues, suppers, parties, dances, quizzes, games nights. - all these plus facilities to play  skittles, snooker, darts  and other games.The Club has members of all ages young and old and is a safe friendly environment for families and people on their own.

In the summer we are pleased to see people who are visiting the area on holiday, and walkers are most welcome.

Dogs may be brought in after permission has been sought.

Visitors are most welcome - just ask to sign the visitors' book.
