As bed and breakfast accommodation goes, Dillington House has much to recommend it. Set in the beautiful grounds of the Dillington Estate, near Ilminster, it provides a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Picturesque scenery, tranquil gardens and a warm, welcoming atmosphere: all help you relax into the laid-back Somerset way of life.
Bed and breakfast guests have the option of staying in the Hyde, the Mews, or the House itself.
The House offers elegance, tradition and beauty: it was home to George III's prime minister, Lord North, in the 18th Century, and has been named by Simon Jenkins as one of England's Thousand Best Houses.
The magnificent mews offers cosy cottage style bedrooms with its own special charm and character.
The Hyde, in contrast, serves as an exemplar of striking contemporary architecture - as confirmed by winning the 2010 RIBA Regional Architecture Award. Many of the Hyde's boutique-style bedrooms have private decks, and offer distant views across the Somerset countryside.
Dillington's bed and breakfast accommodation has been awarded Visit Britain's prestigious Five Star campus scheme rating. All of our bedrooms are en-suite and have flat-screen televisions, clock radios, complimentary toiletries and tea and coffee-making facilities. Should you require it, all bedrooms also have free wireless internet access.
