About this home

Cloaked in wisteria and capped by thatch, Orchard Cottage is wonderfully situated on the private drive to Dillington House in glorious South Somerset. Inside the cottage has been recently renovated to a high standard retaining spades of original character. The cottage benefits from a generous open plan kitchen / dining space that is well equipped for those who enjoy cooking, and the dining zone seats 10, offering plenty of space for everyone to dine together. There is a utility room with washing facilities next door to the kitchen and a separate library / study area off the dining area. There is also a spacious living room with a wood burning stove, large flatscreen TV and comfy sofas. There are three main bedrooms, all en suite, and one loft bedroom.
