About the property

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.

A town and civil parish in the countryside of south west Somerset, Ilminster lies in a desirable position for exploring the south of England. In close reach of both the Blackdown Hills and the Dorset Area's of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the town makes an extremely scenic base for those seeking outdoor wonder, with plenty of activities to entertain all tastes. The parish includes the charming hamlet of Sea, combining to offer a good range of pubs, cafés, restaurants and takeaways for all of your culinary requirements, as well as a selection of supermarkets and independent shops to take your pick from. Taking its name from the River Isle and its large church of St Mary, Ilminster also benefits from a rich history, with its art gallery and concert hall once being a sixteenth-century grammar school, as well as a traditional Edwardian-style clothing and soft furnishings store named Dyers letting you get a real feel for the town's past. Enjoy a show in the town's theatre, Warehouse Theatre, or venture to the nearby historic town of Yeovil, offering wonderful retail experiences, an impressive golf club, pleasant parks and gardens and much more, with the Yeovil Railway Centre being a particular wonder. The National Trust property of Montacute House is in easy reach too, with its impressive Elizabethan Renaissance architecture and design, alongside charming gardens where you can while away the hours, or venture into one of the nearby AONB's for all matters of outdoor adventure including walking, cycling, horse riding amongst remarkable vistas.
