Dillington House is situated in the Somerset countryside about 13 miles from Taunton and around 2 miles from Ilminster. Since 1950 Dillington has served the South West region as a centre for adult education, for conferences and business meetings, and is run by Somerset County Council.

    The main house is complemented by a purpose-built, modern residential conference and meeting venue which is where the Retreat will be primarily held.  

All Retreat attendees will have their own en-suite rooms - these may be double, single or twin rooms depending upon availability. Rooms have flat-screen televisions, complimentary toiletries and tea and coffee-making facilities. The bedrooms also have free wireless internet access.


There are a number of fully accessible bedrooms and most lecture rooms have induction loops. There is a lift for those attendees with mobility requirements. There is ample free parking across the site, with disabled parking available.

    There is a bar/lounge area and plenty of outdoor space for project working - weather permitting!  

We hope you find your Residential Grant Writing Retreat experience
both rewarding and enjoyable.
