The Dillington Book Club offers an opportunity for all those lovers of literature to meet to discuss a variety of books. The group meets on the first Tuesday of every month (with the exception of July and August) and is led by Elizabeth Rapp, who brings with her a wealth of literary knowledge and experience.
Discussion is always lively and passionate as members are encouraged to freely view and express their opinions. Whilst the book club is intended for serious debate there is also a lot of fun to be had and discussions often continue all the way through lunch.
The morning starts with coffee at 10.30am and finishes with a three course lunch at 1.00pm.

I came to Somerset to talk about Socrates and his search for the good life. And in many ways I found it incarnated in Dillington House. Here there is a love of beauty and truth. To find a sympathetic venue with an exquisitely rich history, open to all and encouraging debate, creativity and a passion for life is exactly the kind of thing that would have made Socrates smile. I can't wait to come back.
