Situated in an ancient orchard with views over Dillington Park, Hay Loft is an old estate cottage that has recently been extended and renovated. It is a fantastic space for a rural escape with family or friends.

The house has been renovated to a very high standard and features 6 bedrooms and bathrooms, all beautifully designed with many featuring unique wallpapers and bathroom tiles. There is also a fabulous loft-style, open-plan kitchen, dining and living room space, which opens out through bi-fold doors onto the rear terrace, orchards and view across the rolling hills and woods beyond.


The house has 6 bedrooms on the ground floor, all with their own bathroom. 3 of the bedrooms are in the older part of the house and have historic features such as old elm beams, a large fireplace, and exposed hamstone walls. The other 3 rooms are in the newer part of the house which has been extended into the bank at the rear of the property and they sit below the rear terrace and garden.


The kitchen bi-fold doors open onto the rear south-facing terrace and garden where there is an outdoor dining table and chairs. The glass doors provide stunning views from the dining room, so whether to enjoy your meal from indoors or surrounded by nature will be a tough call to make.


There is a fire pit in the garden so guests can make the most of being in the Somerset countryside long into the evening, and a wood-fired hot tub allowing views across Dillington Park to the north for an indulgent soak. Dogs are welcome at Hay Loft and the garden is fenced.


Hay Loft is happy to accept two dogs for a fee of £50 per dog. We kindly ask that your dog is never left unattended, and does not go on any furniture or in bedrooms.


Hay Loft is located on the drive to Dillington House, and moments from the glorious parklands surrounding the main house. There are some local pubs a short drive away and plenty of beautiful Somerset countryside to explore from the front door.


Due to its rural location, by car is the best way to get to Hay Loft. However, Crewkerne train station is 15 minutes away and Taunton and Castle Cary are a 30-minute drive away, all with direct trains from London. 

Detailed directions are provided upon booking.
