  • "Is no mention that it is an annexe until later in description, and that it is so close to main cottage."

    Patio disappointing. Wouldn’t call it a patio, very tiny part of pathed area. The photo of it is very deceiving, as it is totally overgrown, and doesn’t have a view through to main cottage garden as it does in photo. . The positives are it is very modern inside, and to a high standard inside, and very clean

  • "Lovely cosy and comfy little cottage."

    Really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Previous comments mentioned traffic noise from nearby road but we didn't notice this. Thank you Sue and Peter.

    Thank You for your feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and glad the weather improved a little for you. We look forward to welcoming you back again at some time. Property Owner

  • "A very well kept cottage where everything is clean and works well, also well equipped with everything you need."

    The owners were easily contactable and gave us all the info we needed for a relaxing holiday. Having Sky TV helps with the days when you don’t fancy going out. Good location for exploring Somerset and Dorset. The Sykes website shows the wrong location for the cottage, it’s on the opposite side of the road (if you’re searching for it in the dark!)

    Thank you very much for the fantastic feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Property Owner

    Plenty of parking. Excellent kitchen facilities. Central to lots of interesting towns, National Trust properties, theatre and walks.

  • "Our stay at Dalegarth was very disappointing."

    The cottage description is misleading when it says Dalegarth is within Ilton village that is some distance away. Instead it stands on the edge of a surprisingly busy B road. Less than a mile away on the other side of the cottage is the Ilminster bypass. Excessive road noise from both roads meant that the location of Dalegarth is not ideal for a relaxing, peaceful holiday, quite the reverse. The cottage itself was clean and well equipped. I regret having to write this review but when I choose a holiday cottage, I rely on honest reviews.

Ilminster 2.5 miles.

Engulfed in the glorious green landscapes of the Somerset Countryside within the picturesque village of Ilton, is this arresting holiday cottage, Dalegarth.

Hosting one ground-floor double bedroom, this quaint and idyllic abode is perfectly suited to couples seeking a romantic retreat to this spectacular part of the country.

Step inside this warm and welcoming dwelling and be greeted by a beautiful country-style kitchen, complete with all the essential appliances to cook up a storm.

Joining this space is a pretty dining table where you can enjoy many lovingly prepared meals with your significant other, as you crack open a bottle of bubbly and toast to the good times ahead.

A few steps away a light and sophisticated shower room can be found serving the restful double bedroom, whilst up on the first floor a fabulous sitting room awaits you with an impressive Sky TV.

Embrace your scenic surroundings as you delight in a warm cup of coffee out on the patio, before grabbing your hiking boots and heading out on an exciting expedition exploring the area.

Take a hike through Castle Neroche or up staple hill and enjoy breath-taking views across the Black Down Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, well-worth a visit during your stay.

Visit the neighbouring town of Taunton and discover attractions such as the Museum of Somerset, Longrun Barn and French Weir Park, or spend the day in Yeovil where Ninesprings, The Fish Tower and the Yeovil Railway Centre await you.

See the opulent manor of Montacute House, now owned by the national trust, or travel further afield to the town of Glastonbury to see the imposing remains of Glastonbury Abbey, King Arthur's Tomb, Gog & Magog and the Glastonbury Tor.

Closer to home, the town of Ilminster is filled with fabulous amenities such as a supermarket and a selection of pubs and bars, whilst a stone's throw away attractions such as Sharandy's Birds of Prey and the Chard Museum offer a fun day out for the whole family to enjoy.

Wander Forde Abbey House and Gardens or meet friendly Llama at UK Llamas, before returning to your humble home-away-from-home for a relaxing evening indoors.

Make the most of precious time with your significant other on an escape to Dalegarth.
