TravelPod's Snapshot

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 …

    ... decide what to do. That doesn't always help as we seem to have four seasons in one hour over here. We have had some mostly nice days which has been good. Cheddar is a small touristy town not far from here with a pretty stream running through it. It had a lot of the usual gift shops. Naturally cheese was featured quite a bit and there was a cheese processing / tasting factory there. Very nice too. We also went to Cheddar Gorge just out of town which ...

Nigel got up early on Saturday morning and fished with no luck :-(. We then caught a bus into Weston and came back via a shop in tescos and cooked. The weather was too windy to keep the new sun canopy up, however by the eve there was no wind at all. Tomorrow it's the 160 trip to Wales, ...

    ... The shops claims to have the best range of fabrics outside USA. Back into the bus and on to Bath where we went into the Fashion Museum which held clothing from the Georgian era, similar to clothes seen in Jane Austen films. Following this we had lunch and I chose to be taken back to our hotel rather than browse the town as I am coming back after the tour to have a few nights ...
