Dating from 1817 and with Bath Stone exterior, Backwell House is set in beautiful extensive grounds among the rolling countryside of North Somerset and just a short hop from Bristol. Immaculately presented throughout and lovingly restored whilst being sympathetic to the building’s history. The intention has been to embellish the original features whilst combining it with eclectic modern design.
From your ceremony of up to 60 though to your evening reception of 130, we are the ideal venue. We offer you complete flexibility for intimate weddings through to grander celebrations. We specialise in providing a homely feel that allows for you and your guests to relax and enjoy the day.
We are licenced for both outdoor or indoor ceremonies, both providing an unique backdrop for your ‘I do’s’.
We serve locally sourced produce and where possible from our own kitchen garden. Our canapé menu perfectly accompanies your drink reception and makes for an ideal amuse bouche whilst you enjoy your glass of fizz. We have a uniquely designed three course wedding breakfast menu, all of our dishes are prepared on the premises with passion. Our Head Chef is always open to ideas and suggestions, we are happy to do our best to accommodate each and any of your requests!
Relax following your day of celebrations in one of our luxury guest rooms, which are ideally suited to the needs of wedding parties. Sink into a super-king bed and lounge in your roll top bath as you look out over our extensive gardens. All nine of our guest rooms are furnished with en-suite bathrooms, complimentary toiletries, dressing gowns and flat-screen TVs. A full English breakfast is of course included.
