The property

Positioned in the heart of the charming market town of Ilminster, in the sought-after county of Somerset, rests this delightful mid-terrace holiday home, Dilly Dally.

Settled centrally between both the coast and country of Somerset, Dilly Dally makes an excellent base for a family or group of friends to explore the delights of this desirable area.

Kick off your shoes as you step inside your new home-from-home and enter into the fabulous open-plan living space, where you can look forward to unwinding with a sumptuous seat snuggled up on the corner sofa in front of the Smart TV, enveloped in the warmth radiating from the rustic woodburning stove nestled inside an exposed stone inglenook fireplace.

Follow the hardwood floor through the sociable space to discover the well-equipped kitchen, fit with a range of conveniences to assist with your self-catering needs; rustle up a hearty feast before gathering together with your loved ones at the nearby dining table to indulge.

In the summer months, throw open the patio doors and take your dining experience outdoors, where your four-legged friends can stretch their legs on the lawn as you soak in the last of the sunshine with your favourite tipple.

When the day draws to a close, retreat indoors and climb the stairs to the first floor where you'll find three well-presented bedrooms, two doubles and a twin, each serviced by the contemporary family bathroom, where guests can choose between an indulgent soak in the tub or a quick morning rinse under the shower head.

Benefiting from a central location, there's a plethora of amenities and attractions nestled on your doorstep, why not take the evening off and indulge in a delicious bite to eat at one of four pubs settled within walking distance, or fuel the days excursions with a hearty breakfast at The Kitchen on Silver Street?

Those looking to get their steps in will be delighted with a visit to Herne Hill, a peaceful nature reserve decorated with vibrant shrubbery and ancient woodland; a truly lovely spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The National Trust property of Barrington Court is settled a short distance away from the town, where visitors can tour the interior, walled orchard and colourful gardens of this remarkable Tudor manor house.

Next stop is the bustling town of Taunton, home to the Museum of Somerset, showcasing exhibits, audio and films depicting the fascinating history of the area, or if that's not your thing, test your swing with a game of pitch and putt or treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy with a wander through the County Walk Shopping Centre.

With both the Quantock and Blackdown Hills within easy reach, each designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you're in an outdoor adventurer's paradise, with an abundance of walking, cycling and hiking trails leading you through picture-perfect landscapes.

For an escape to the country like no other, choose Dilly Dally.

The peaceful town is home to a great selection of shops, including the traditional drapers, Dyers, as well as Meeting House Arts Centre showcasing unique art. The 15th century Minster offers a combination of ancient architecture with contemporary glass doors at the front; this building is a must see for those visiting Ilminster.
