Little Bank, near Ilminster, Somerset

Part of the beautiful 3,000-acre Dillington Estate, Little Bank is the latest arrival to join their collection of six picture-perfect self-catering cottages. With four ensuite double/twin bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen/diner, and a large outside space with hot tub and garden, it’s exactly the spot to get together with friends and family. Both inside and out lend themselves to socialising (and boozing!), with plenty of seating for all, a barbecue for warm days and a wood burner for chilly ones.

Wine tasting experience & hamper

A short hop over the border to Devon’s beautiful Axe Valley will take you to Lyme Bay Winery, where they produce a range of award-winning English wines as well as a selection of spirits, liqueurs and cider. During your two-hour guided tasting at the Cellar Door, an expert will talk you through each tipple, explaining how it’s made and where the grapes are sourced, and you’ll sample English wines (white, rosé, red, sparkling), mead and spirits (rum or gin).

A hamper of still and sparkling bottles will be awaiting your arrival at Little Bank, for you to enjoy at the cottage or take home for another time.
