My daughter had her wedding ceremony and reception here August 1st 2015. We first visited Dillington House back in winter. A roaring log fire greeted us in the entrance hall and we knew almost straight away that this was the venue which ticked all the boxes. The house and its grounds are beautiful and an ideal setting for such an... More

I went there with our WI for afternoon tea. In all there must have been at least 80 of us. The food was quite plentiful it consisted of sandwiches, cakes and tea/coffee. It was all brought out in due time and was very tasty with an attractive array if cakes. However, as someone who does not gave a sweet tooth,... More

We attended my brother and sister-in-laws 40th Wedding Anniversary dinner and disco then many of the party stayed the night which made it a beautifully relaxing break. The building and grounds are outstanding and all the children loved exploring the woods and playing croquet in the afternoon before the party. Tea was served at 4 pm and then we assembled... More

Beautiful setting very tranquil and full of character and the food was amazing!! Not sure why food and drinks not allowed in the purpose built theatre yet in the listed main house it was acceptable but hey ho, such a fine location to brighten up a grey training day

We have been attending adult education courses here for many years and cannot praise it highly enough. Arrive in a wonderful (basically tudor) old house to be greeted as freinds. The food and accomodation is superb, (there is a range of options for the rooms, from small singles to a huge suite) The courses range from a day to a... More

A cultural highlight in Ham stone in the middle of extensive , beautiful gardens. Dillington is a beautiful house with a range of activities to enjoy . The accommodation, food and service are all top notch.

Not easy to find but a nice old house/s. Food was average but staff very helpful. Room (Mews) was basic, NO iron/ironing board which was a big disappointment ! No shampoo but 2x shower gel - need to keep on top of details. Shower was very low flow and the room in general needs to be brought up to date.... More

I organised a garden tour to UK for 48 members of our cottage garden group from southeast Queensland in July this year and spent 4 nights at Dillington House in Ilminster, Somerset. Although it is run mainly as a conference centre we found it ideal for a group such as ours who were visiting gardens throughout the day. The staff... More

Beautiful country house and conference center located in Somerset. The center is built around a 16th century country house. The rooms are split between those in the actual house and renovated stables and a more eclectic modern block of rooms. I had a room in the country house...very nice with original windows and a comfortable bed. The dinner was tasty... More
