We held our wedding at Dillington House in October 2016 and were absolutely blown away by the whole experience. To start with the obvious, it is a breath-taking venue set in beautiful grounds. But more than that, the staff are fantastic, the food is delicious and the wedding-coordinator Kirsty is lovely and very professional; we knew we were in safe... More

Lovely grounds around the house to go for a nice walk. Breakfast next morning was delightful. Definitely would recommend this beautiful venue to... More

Dillington House was the perfect venue for our wedding in September. It is the most beautiful building in gorgeous grounds and we knew within minutes on our first visit that it would deliver on all counts. We wanted somewhere for exclusive use where we could have our ceremony, reception, evening do and enable guests to stay in comfort and style.... More

We attended a wedding at Dillington house which was a beautiful setting in the Somerset countryside . The house is owned by Somerset cc but hired out to wedding companies to organise weddings. There is obviously a complete disconnect between the two. We were told that the rooms were available from 2.30, wedding at 3.30, when we arrived at 2.40... More

Hi - I am sorry that Dillington House did not meet the expected standards as it should have done. I know that there was a problem with housekeeping but of course this is no excuse for poor standards. I hope that you raised your concerns with reception and they were addressed promptly but if you do have anything else to... More

Absolutely stunning location, very welcoming. Grounds, rooms and staff were very good, our son and daughter-in-laws wedding reception was very smoothly run and went off without a hitch. We had a disabled room, very comfortable that catered for our needs

My partner and I got married in Dillington house last Saturday and wow what an amazing day it was, which wouldn't have been possible without Kirsty and the Dillington team. From the very beginning Kirsty and her team were so accommodating and helpful with our prep, ideas and suggestions. Always at the other end of the phone/email answering our queries!... More
