This delightful property with its thatched roof and wisteria-clad stones gables is pretty as a picture. 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 and 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 yourself.

Warm days can be spent relaxing in the garden with a glass of bubbly while lunch sizzles away on the barbecue. Four tempting bedrooms offer sumptuous beds and fluffy white bathrobes, and for the ultimate in relaxation you can sink into the free-standing 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.
