the orchard

Somerset
Sleeps 8 From £230 per night

The Orchard is a Grade II listed thatched house on the private drive just 100 metres from Dillington House. With the parkland just on your doorstep, a private garden and wood fired Swedish-style hot tub, The Orchard is the perfect rural holiday home. 

The Orchard sleeps 6 adults and 2 further children in 4 bedrooms. The bedrooms are spread out over 2 floors allowing for lots of space, and the house is fully equipped for short and long stays alike. 

DOWNSTAIRS

There is a fully equipped open plan kitchen/dining room, utility room and separate study area. The roomy living room has a cosy wood burner for those cooler nights and large flatscreen television. 

One bedroom is downstairs with a super king/twin bed and en-suite wet room and is a great room for those less able to navigate stairs. 

UPSTAIRS

The Master bedroom has a super king four poster bed with en-suite bathroom including freestanding nickel bath and walk in shower.

Bedroom 2 can be a super king or twin room and also has a walk in shower.

Bedroom 3 is a twin room and is accessed via the Master four poster bed room sharing its bathroom. This Master & third bedroom are better suited to a family. 

OUTSIDE

The private garden is lawned and the wood fired hot tub will enhance your stay. There is a sunken patio with large outdoor dining table, just outside the kitchen – for those warmer months.
