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 …

    Cornwall to Lyme Regis, Dorset

    We were sad to leave our wild spot of Cornwall, but we had s perfect day of travel across Dartmoor. Parts of it were wild and isolated. All the Dartmoor ponies had new foals and all the new born lambs were prancing about. The Dartmoor prison looked suitably grey, Victorian and forbidding. We called in to Castle Drogo, a national trust property which had a beautiful garden. Our Lyme ...

    We decided to do the washing again today as the sun was shining but also to go down to the Mere Museum. It was at the library, while Lyn was trying to look up old newspapers online, Lloyd, Clem & I looked at the old photos books & other information about Mere. I also found some interesting things on other places nearby where my ancestors had been a couple of hundred years ago.
    Afterwards we split ...

    Crop Circles in Somerset

    We drove down from London a little despondent as our paperwork for the car was still not back from customs who in their wisdom decided to send it second class royal mail, which probably should be named second rate royal mail. Given it is not possible for us to leave the country in the car without it we were more than a little anxious when it did not turn up by the allotted time.

    Regardless we headed down ...

    They know (better than we do) how

    to live in the places where they live.

    And so I would like to be a true

    human being, dear reader – a choice

    not altogether possible now.

    but this is what I’m for, the side

    I’m on. And this is what you should

    expect of me, as I expect it of myself,
