Weddings at Dillington


Somerset’s most magnificent wedding venue

Dillington is one of the most beautiful, historic houses in Somerset, dating back to the Elizabethan era, within a stunning parkland setting, at the heart of the Dillington Estate.


This mellow Ham Stone house offers a wonderful backdrop for wedding photographs and with its lovely gardens, magical woodlands, romantic Orangery and tinkling fountains, Dillington House is the perfect setting for your wedding celebrations.  

Exclusively yours with elegant reception rooms and the choice of having Civil Ceremonies in our romantic, light filled Orangery with the option of a part outdoor ceremony, within the house in the grand Hanning room, or in the Theatre in the magnificent 1870s Mews Building. Dillington can seat up to 150 guests for your ceremony and for your wedding breakfast with capacity for up to 200 guests for the evening reception.  

Our chefs offer a wide range of delicious dishes and are extremely flexible and are happy to prepare a menu to suit your personal tastes. At Dillington, as far as is possible, we use the finest locally sourced traditional West Country produce and seasonal ingredients.

We can sleep 78 adult guests (with children on top of this number) either in Dillington House itself with 16 traditional English country house style bedrooms, 12 cosy cottage style bedrooms in the magnificent Mews and a further 15 contemporary Boutique Hotel style bedrooms complete with wet rooms in the award winning Hyde Building. Our fabulous full English breakfast is laid on the following morning, so that, you and your family and friends can enjoy time together and reminisce about your wonderful day before heading off on honeymoon or back home.  

With many years of experience behind us and with our wedding co-ordinators and the dedicated Dillington team on hand, we can help you plan every aspect of your wedding day, leaving nothing to chance and making sure that, you and your guests, have the most amazing time here at Dillington .

We're so pleased that we picked Dillington. We know that people are the most important thing and the effort, work and organisation Kirsty, Sue and the team at Dillington put in to make sure everything was perfect is something we both spotted on the day but in the build up too. Rob & Kate Swan
