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 …

"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

    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 ...

    it appears that we have selected a bank holiday weekend to travel to Chester. We'll see what tomorrow brings

    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?

    ... It was built in 1601 by a Mr Phelps who was the chief prosecutor in the Guy Fawkes trial.

    We had a great lunch in The King's Arms Inn before the visit which allowed us to walk off the lunch in the house and gardens. I loved the garden with its wonderful borders of plants etc

    Before "supper" (which included a piece of Bakewell Tart....) we were ...
