The Experience

Pretty as a picture, this delightful Grade II cottage oozes charm from every stone and the thatched roof and wisteria-clad stones gables add to the character.

Step inside to a light and homely open plan space, where mealtimes will be a social affair and evenings will be spent sinking into comfy sofas getting toasty in front of the flickering wood burner. For days when getting lost in your favourite holiday read is all that’s required, the small library lets you escape and make time for you.

Warm days can be spent relaxing in the garden with the barbecue adding to the holiday atmosphere. You can even relax the day away in your own woodfired hot tub.

When sleep beckons, the four tempting bedrooms invite you to relax with sumptuous beds and white fluffy robes. And for the ultimate in relaxation, you can sink into the freestanding nickel bath and surround yourself with bubbles or head out to the wooden hot tub for an evening under the stars.

The quiet drive to Dillington House is a bridleway and footpath, so you can pull on your boots and head outdoors to explore the surrounding countryside. The path leads to Dillington Park where you can play family games or continue walking through the beautiful estate.

Orchard Cottages comes with private parking for three cars.
Sorry no pets.

The Dillington Estate is a 3000 acre working farm and country estate peppered with chocolate-box cottages and Grade II listed farms.

Many of the old working buildings and cottages have been lovingly restored to offer beautiful holiday homes. You’ll find modern interiors that seamlessly blend with the character within, from mullioned windows, thatched roofs and ancient oak beams to a modern glass garden room where you can entertain in style.

Somerset also has some of the darkest skies in the country, making the outdoor hot tubs the perfect place to gaze at the stars.
