Dillington House is a charming venue in the equally charming Somerset, where locals or enchanted visitors can enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience. The property specializes in weddings, although it also hosts courses, lectures, live concerts, and other events. This is good news for any bride or groom, in that it showcases how easy it is to bring in special touches for the ceremony, be it a full orchestra, a more modern band, or a group offering to recite meaningful literature and poetry. Guests who have stayed here are unanimously enthusiastic about their experiences, not in the least because of the venue's history.
Originally Prime Minister Lord North's private home, Dillington House's foundations are from the 16th century, so the current structure exists around an appealing country home. In addition to being near green woodlands, the grounds feature fountains and an Orangery that guests praise for being so romantic. Ceremonies typically take place outside, in the Hanning Room, or in the theatre found in the Mews Building, which dates back to the 1870s. Depending on the time of the ceremony, the venue can seat around 200 guests. The real convenience comes from its ability to provide food and drink to guests as well.

We leave Leonie and Glenn to experience another night at the lovely Dillington House and for us to head off through Illminster allowing a morning to get to Ilfracombe. We head off the beaten track as Rod puts it! Through narrow hedgerow lanes. But the scenery is worth it. Heading through Newtown, Bishopswood along little lanes we are off the proper …
... where we saw the original Magna Carta that was signed in 1215. Also a clock that has been operating since 1386. This is the oldest working medieval clock in existence. It has no face but is designed to strike on the hour. We then had dinner with Brock's parents in an Indian restaurant in Topsham a cute seaside resort. A very pleasant ...
... was the badger. We only saw the one, it came up the driveway, round the corner towards The Annex, then back again with another little "chat" with Holly! I was astounded at how big it was. I guess I'd thought it would be the size of a large cat, but no - I'd compare it more to the size of a beagle. After the badger sighting we skedaddled back to our B&B, and fortunately didn't have to dive into the hedges to let any other car pass.
We took a pleasant stroll around Michele and James's flat which is in Islington. We topped up our Oyster cards and did a bit of shopping. At lunchtime we travelled on the subway to Waterloo station to print our train tickets. We found a lovely park in the church opposite to the station and had our lunch there. I caught the train to Exeter where Emily picked me up and then we went out for dinner. It was lovely to see her. David explored London on his own for the remainder of the ...
From Graffham we headed down to the coast to a beautiful little town called Abbotsbury close to Weymouth. We headed towards the beach but were eventually stopped by the end of the road. Time to walk again.
From Abbotsbury we headed down to the beach which consisted of pebbles, pebbles and more pebbles. I don't think I have ever seen so many pebbles in my life, and guess what.....fishermen, fishing from the ...
