About Dillington Dairy

A delightful retreat; Dillington Dairy is a secluded, substantial stone cottage set within the grounds of Dillington House - part of the Family's Estate. The cattle grid is the only obstacle to cross to ensure you enjoy the freedom of this grand, rural setting. A wealth of creeping vines encase the front aspect, whilst to the rear of the property; beautiful manicured gardens and a pond lends itself to explore. Outdoor seating is a welcome area to enjoy the surroundings with family or friends during the warmer weather; al fresco dining and a glass of local cider to unwind after a day's walking and exploring the local area - make sure you bring your 'Wellies' or walking shoes.

A luxury Somerset holiday home - contemporary, high end style with a design twist. Downstairs offers a well thought out open plan kitchen and dining area for any socialising occasion. A conservatory overlooking the garden leads from the dining area. The wood floors are warm underfoot, whilst the log burner in the lounge will take the chill off any a cool evening. With a separate TV room, it means if the 'Big' kids want some alone time, they can.

A separate laundry room housing all the home from home facilities and appliances can be found away from the peace and quiet this tranquil cottage offers. Upstairs the four double bedrooms; two of which are en-suite, afford everyone a comfortable night's sleep ready to awaken for a new adventure in Somerset.

A truly wonderful Somerset holiday rental to enjoy with friends or family all year round.

Dillington House is only a 5 minute walk away and was once the home of former Prime Minister, Lord North. For local pubs try the Barrington Boar pub in Barrington, a great rustic country pub or a smarter gastro pub in Hinton called the Lord Poulett Arms.
