But it gets even better, step inside and this is an idyllic, sophisticated manor house for a memorable house party. Spacious entertaining spaces and superbly comfortable bedrooms.

Social Spaces

A skilled design eye has been at the helm, blending the best of elegant, sometimes quirky, contemporary styling with beautiful antique furniture, original features and family portraits.

A flagged stone hallway opens into a snooker room, for a Gatsby movie vibe – make sure to pack your little black dress & black tie. The sitting rooms have open fires, ideal for sofa snoozing or pre-dinner cocktails.

Boutique hotel style and all for you. The recently renovated and beautifully decorated bedrooms and bathrooms are immaculate. Crisp cotton bed linen, extremely comfortable beds and top range bathroom fittings may tempt you to linger in your room. Large showers and huge bath tubs add to the overall quality of this party house.

There are 10 bedrooms (eight en-suite) sleeping 20 guests and a further large attic for 4 with its own bathroom.

Fun spaces

The dining room makes a grand, statement setting for a celebration dinner, caterers can be booked too, if you want to make it a really special occasion. The games room will keep you entertained whatever the weather with table tennis, table football and lots of board games – the hanging hoops let you practice your Tarzan skills too.

The pool, tennis court, trampoline & gardens

The year round astro tennis court is adjacent to the heated outdoor pool (summer months), in a walled garden that’s ideal for sunbathing. The large, well tended gardens give you plenty of space for football games, hide and seek or quiet exploring. Enjoy the sunken trampoline, the pond, fountain and the delightful countryside views too.

A few small points

Children should be supervised in the garden because of the pool (9ft deep), pond, fountain and Ha-Ha (a 6 foot vertical drop bounding one of the lawns).

Ilminster Manor is only available until mid 2020 and then will be withdrawn.

During your stay

It’s hard to find a reason to leave this lovely house, that said the house is set in the middle of Dillington Estate and it’s woodlands and farmland on your doorstep make an excellent place for a countryside stroll, there is a route to the pub too!

It’s Somerset, so we’d recommend visiting a few of the local cider producers for a tasting, a tour and to take some goodies home with you.

A day trip to the seaside at Lyme Regis is well worth a visit. On New Years Day you can join in the annual crazy gang’s sea swim, or summer time paddle without frostbite on your toes. The dining options are wide ranging, from HIX Oyster & Fish House to a parcel of fish and chips on the beach – we love them both.


Ilminster Manor is located near Ilminster, Somerset, with easy access to the A303 and 15 minutes from Crewkerne railway station.
