We would like to say a big thank you to dillington house for providing a wonderful wedding reception.Everything from friday afternoon to sunday morning was carried out with such professionalism.On the big day the transitions from drinks reception to hog roast to evening food went so smoothly we hardly noticed the staff.Kirsty and her team worked so well to look after us all.Our guests had an amazing time enjoying the 'run' of the house and the wonderful gardens.It was so relaxed just what we and the bride and groom wanted.

I stayed at Dillington for 6 nights in July whilst doing a residential course. I had room 9 in the House which is a small double. The room was comfortable and clean. The food is good and the staff are lovely.

There are various different rooms in the House, in the Hyde and The Mews. The staff are very helpful when booking accommodation.

The House is very close to the A303 which makes it easy to get from Dillington into the rest of Somerset and Devon.

I have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: Have a chat with staff about the rooms when booking. The Hyde is modern whereas the house is older a...

A one night business travel stop on the way down to Cornwall. The main house is absolutely stunning and check in was very smooth, initially I was disappointed to be told I was not in a room in the main house but as I walked around the old stable blocks and saw “The Hyde” a ultra-modern design building all changed as it is simply stunning also. The room had great views over fields and was finished to a very high standard with a very good detail on design and look. Although no restaurant on site they supplied a substantial list of restaurants and the Balti house we used was great. Breakfast was buffet style and very nice with views over the main lawn and fields in a grand room. Would without doubt use again a beautiful establishment

We stayed there for a family wedding on one of the hottest days of the year, so it is always disappointing that they have built a very modern new bedroom block and don't include air conditioning, not even a fan.

Very clean and tidy, staff very helpful and breakfast very good, people will love the surrounds and the grounds, which are kept immaculate.

We stayed in the modern part (the Hyde) and had a fantastic view over the fields & walled garden. The room was fine, the staff friendly and helpful (even though they were dealing with 2 weddings). We had a peaceful night's sleep and a great breakfast. The grounds around Dillington are beautiful and I would certainly stay here again (...and I am very fussy). Very minor niggles could be weak wifi signal in our room, and managing to lock ourselves out as we had only one key, but overall these were nothing compared to the overall positive experience

We stayed in the main house for a weekend wedding at he venue. The staff were very friendly and helpful making our stay very relaxin. The great weather meant we able to take full advantage of the beautiful grounds and surrounding views. The large crochet and putting lawn kept the children entertained. The food was of very good quality and good sized portions. Our room in the house was full of character with marble fireplace and iron window frames, en suite small but spotlessly clean and functional. The house was full of history and interesting portraits, decor. This is not all mod cons location but we knew that and the character and setting made it a refreshing change from the somewhat sterile corporate standardisation of so many chain hotels. The heating was on full blast and we needed to open the antiquated windows to make the room a comfortable temperature, I would imagine the winter may bring a significant chill and draught however.
The children were accommodated on blow up beds in our room. We saw a few rooms in the house all different.
Breakfast was again excellent bar. prices reasonable. A very enjoyable weekend and lovely setting for a wedding.

Room Tip: Lord north 6 and 7 very nice.

Our two nights here have gone too quickly. We are here as part of a course but would very much like to come back on a b and b basis too. Can warmly recommend The Lord North Room! Breakfast is delicious and hot plates frequently replenished so the eggs are cooked perfectly and the bacon is crispy and has not sat bathed in water for hours. There is plenty to see and do nearby and can recommend a visit to Feast in Ilminster for lunch.
