BFB's Overview.

If the guest book is anything to go by, Dillington Estate in south Somerset is a real gem! This family-owned working farm and country estate covers over 3000 acres of beautiful British countryside, just a short drive from a choice of pretty towns and rural villages.

Deciding to share this rural haven with guests, the owners have created a smattering of stylish, family-friendly holiday accommodation from the former farm buildings and cottages. Recently renovated, each offers a luxurious country hideaway for between 4-24 guests. Scattered across the estate, each property sits in tranquil, country surroundings with views of rolling fields and private gardens. Large parties looking for somewhere to celebrate something special are in luck as there are several options to choose from. Whether they opt for the charming Dairy House which sleeps up to 16 guests and comes with its own orchard, hot tub, play area, and resident chickens. Or something statelier, in the form of the Manor House which sleeps 24 and comes with its own swimming pool and tennis court. Throw in the option for private chef hire and there is everything needed for a truly memorable celebratory holiday!

Whichever property guests choose, they will find themselves transported to a world of peace and relaxation, or at least they will until the kids wake up! Mornings are filled with birdsong and days can be spent exploring the local area which has a great deal to offer from pretty towns and village to family days out. Foodies have a choice of great places to discover from the ever-popular Pig at Combe to At The Chapel in fashionable Bruton.
All in all, Dillington Estate is an idyllic place to escape the toils of urban living and take in some much-needed country air!

Accommodation Overview

Orchard House is a charming four-bedroom country cottage for six plus two kids. Beautiful inside and out, this wisteria-clad, gable-fronted cottage is brimming with charm. Recently renovated, the owners have combined original features, such as the thatched roof and ancient beamed ceilings with luxurious, contemporary interiors to create a really special holiday home.

Downstairs there is a lovely, open plan kitchen diner complete with an oven, induction hob, fridge freezer, and dishwasher, plus a separate utility room with a washer drier. The dining area has a large table with seating for 10. A small library/study room is situated off the dining area and there is a large separate living room with comfortable sofas, a wood-burning stove, and a 55" TV with Bluetooth soundbar.

Outside there is a good size lawned garden with a private wood-fired hot tub, charcoal BBQ, and outdoor dining furniture situated on a sunken terrace just outside the kitchen.

The house has three main bedrooms and a loft room. One bedroom is located on the ground floor and can be made up as a super-king sized double room or twin bedroom. It has an en-suite wet-room with shower. Upstairs, on the first floor there are two bedrooms. The first has a super-king sized four-poster bed with a en-suite bathroom featuring a freestanding nickel bath, alongside a walk-in shower. The second room can be made up a super-king sized double or twin bedroom and has a walk-in shower.

The fourth and final bedroom is accessed through the four-poster bedroom mentioned above and share the bathroom of that room. The room has two single beds.

Each bedroom comes with high-quality bed linens, deep mattresses, luxury mattress toppers and fluffy bathrobes.

The house has parking for up to three cars.

Location Information

The estate is a real rural haven surrounded by beautiful countryside with a wealth of walks and cycle paths on the doorstep. Guests can use the owners local connections to hire bikes and explore the area on two wheels with regular stop offs at the lovely local pubs which are scattered around the nearby villages.

Those hoping for beach days are in luck as the beautiful Dorset and south Devon countryside is an easy drive away (30-45 minutes) and has a choice of family-friendly beaches.

Family days out are easy as there is a whole host of options nearby. Parents with water babies in the family can head to Crewkerne Aqua Centre, which has a great indoor pool, or wannabe equestrians may prefer to try Drakes riding centre which is only a short drive away. For rainy days there’s a soft play centre in nearby Yeovil and Haynes Motor Museum is worth a visit. The ever-popular Wookey Hole with its famous caves and great indoor play areas is also an easy drive away. Nature lovers will appreciate a visit to Axe Valley Wildlife Park which is a small and friendly zoo en route to Lyme Regis beach.

There really is a great choice of gastropubs and local eateries nearby. The owners have a host of favourites they can recommend to guests. We especially like The White Hart in Somerton, which is headed up by the ex-chef of River Cottage and The Pig at Combe which is famous for its great food and sumptuous cocktails.

Getting there: We would recommend guests have a car, as they would be too isolated without one. That said, any additional guests wishing to travel by train have the following options. Crewkerne station is a 15-minute drive away and is on the line from Waterloo. Taunton and Castle Cary are both a 25-minute drive away and on the mainline from Paddington.
