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.

"There should be plenty of them down by the river at this time of year." "Oh, very good." Said Barney. "Splendid." Barney and Miss Washington left the house, and wandered down to the path along the river. No sooner had they started picking blackberries when Mr Fisher arrived on his bicycle. "Dog! Dog!" Mr Fisher called, ...
We were allowed a slight sleep in this morning and used the extra hour
to go for a walk around Exeter Cathedral which is just behind the hotel.
After this we drove down to Polperro , a small fishing village. More
tourist than fishing I suspect now. Very pretty town , picture postcard
stuff. Houses glued to the steep sides of the harbor. Time for a walk
around and some lunch. Beautiful bright blue skies and ...

tried to wear shorts again but it is still quite cool and long trousers and vest are still required along with the obligatory brolly. Apparently that it no different to Adelaide at present. I wonder now why I left my auto watering system on?
