Beautiful, recently renovated holiday cottage in the heart of Somerset
Orchard Cottage
Retreat Menu +

Orchard Cottage is an idyllic and wonderfully situated little cottage, with its wisteria-clad stone gables & thatched roof.

The newest addition to the Dillington Estate, the recently renovated Orchard Cottage is a beautiful, Grade II listed holiday home on the private drive to Dillington House, just 100 metres or so from the iconic building itself.

Encouraging guests to sleep soundly and let the hustle and bustle of everyday life soak away, Orchard Cottage boasts three superb, en-suite bedrooms plus a cosy room with twin beds for young explorers. Each bedroom comes complete with deep mattresses and indulgent mattress toppers, the finest cotton bed linen and fluffy bathrobes.

The ground-floor suite is ideal for those with limited mobility as it is accessed by only a small number of steps, with either super-king or twin sleeping configurations, plus a private shower wet-room. Stepping upstairs, the first bedroom has a super-king, four-poster bed and en-suite with an unforgettable, freestanding nickel bathtub and walk-in shower. This room also leads to a twin room, ideal for little ones. The final bedroom can be arranged as either a super-king or twin with a walk-in shower.

Downstairs, the open-plan kitchen (with dining area seating 10) is heaven for those that enjoy cooking, as the space is fully equipped (induction hob, state-of-the-art oven etc.), providing a true home-from-home feel. Next door, there is a separate utility room with laundry facilities and a large fridge-freeze with ice machine.

Next door, the elegant sitting room centres around a magnificent stone fireplace, with roaring, wood-burning stove and is equipped with a 55’’ flat-screen, internet-connected TV with Bluetooth sound bar and a Bluetooth DAB radio sound system. Adjacent to the sitting space is a small study for peaceful reading or for catching up on e-mails (although we prefer the former!).

Stepping outside, the large lawn is perfect for children to explore whilst the adults enjoy a crisp bottle of local cider on the sheltered, sunken patio (complete with beautiful teak furniture). The charcoal BBQ makes the perfect addition to the outdoor area, allowing guests to serve up delicious local ingredients in the midst of the summer sunshine.

Orchard Cottage’s rural location allows guests to retreat from everyday life to a countryside haven, where there are plenty of pubs to access on foot or two wheels (we recommend the Dinnington Docks, Lord Poulett Arms or Five Dials), boutique shops to explore and sprawling country estates to conquer. The cottage leads directly into Dillington Park via a bridleway, which hosts a myriad of trails and cycling routes, as well as lengthy walkies for four-legged friends. For a true taste of Somerset, pop into the microbrewery at Stocklinch Ales (open on Friday evenings and Sunday lunchtimes), or set your sights on the beach with Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast just a 40-minute drive away to the South.
