Crinkley Bottom, or 'Blobbyland', premiered at Cricket St Thomas, Somerset in 1994 at the height of Blobbymania, when the pink partner with spots starred in Noel Edmonds' House Party. After a major renovation and removal of everything related to Noddy, Cricket St Thomas became a hotel and a wildlife park. It was developed on the grounds of Cricket House, in Cricket St Thomas, which was already a popular local attraction in the 1990s, with wildlife enclosures and an adventure park. However, at the end of 1993, Noel Edmonds' 'House Party' program was one of the most important television programs in the country, and at that time Edmonds lived near Cricket in Devon.
After months of hard work, Noel Edmonds officially opened Crinkley Bottom at Cricket St Thomas on the weekend of July 2-3, 1994. Cricket St Thomas is a quiet village in the heart of Somerset, a short distance from Chard and Crewkerne. Initially, the Taylors were excited about their contract, investing millions in transforming Cricket St Thomas into Crinkley Bottom.
Initially Edmonds wanted to build a replica of the Great House (as seen in 'House Party'), but instead it was decided to introduce attractions on a consistent basis for several years and conclude with the replica of the Great House later on. The park now consists of an adults-only hotel in and around the cricket house with most of Mr. Blobby's remains being taken or demolished. Cricket House, located on the hillside of the estate, overlooks Lake Tiddlers, which runs through the grounds.
The Crinkley Bottom park was based around Mr Blobby with a Blobby-themed house called "Dunblobbin'" being the main attraction, along with several other themed areas based on British children's television including Noddy and The Animals of Farthing Wood. The park opened in 1994 and was popular.in 1995, a water river ride based on children's television was opened with plans being made to open a replica of "The Great House" set from the television programme in Cricket House. However in 1996 Edmonds pulled out of backing the park, though due to contractual rights the majority of the attractions remained but were removed in 1997, References to Mr Blobby were removed, with Noddy being used as the main character for the rebranded Cricket St Thomas Wildlife Park until the whole area was closed in 1998.
