Great wedding, Amazing views and Beautiful gardens
Venue Service

By Gemma McKenzie and Raymond Rogers, on 08 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

We had a great wedding here in August 2018. Amazing views, beautiful gardens, and really good recommendations from Rupert and his wife for Bath Marquees and Cherry Picked Catering who were brilliant (highly professional, extremely friendly and accommodating to our needs). Thanks for everything,

The setting was perfect
Venue Service

By Matthew and Julia Body, on 16 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

Had an amazing wedding day here. Rupert was very flexible with how we ran the day but still really helpful with suggestions. The setting is perfect for a wedding and all our guests we're in awe of the view

Truly magical experience
Venue Service

Really had such a truly magical experience in the lovely garden at Hamswell. Our guests thought it was the most beautiful venue they had ever seen.

The perfect mix of grandeur and relaxed elegance
Venue Service

By Sarah Speechly, on 14 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

We got married at Hamswell house last Bank holiday of May 2018. The weather was perfect and garden was green and thriving! - we loved every minute of it! It is a beautiful venue and we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. We loved it's perfect mix of grandeur and relaxed elegance in the marquee and and gardens and incredible party space in the Orangery and surrounding gardens. The sunset and view or the gorgeous rolling bath hills and countryside was also really special. Rupert allowed us to have the catering late night as well in the front driveway as people were leaving which was great so they could enjoy the house, views and late night feeding! The team made the whole process so easy and such good fun! They have so much experience and just thought of every little detail so effortlessly. If you are looking for a magical venue and people that will make planning your wedding a pleasure - Hamswell is the place and we feel so lucky we were able to have our party there! Go have a look for yourself, its magical and feels very cosy and away from the world! Thanks Hamswell!! Sarah and Tom

The wedding venue of dreams!
Venue Service

By Pearl van den Ende, on 05 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

The wedding venue of dreams! I organised a wedding for a gorgeous couple at Hamswell House earlier this month, the weather was perfect and we were able to make use of the incredible grounds. The house provides the most glorious backdrop for a quintessentially English country wedding. The host - Rupert, is a marvellous chap and very helpful, though you are free to organise the wedding that you/your client wants. I cannot recommend this stunning venue more highly. I am looking forward to organising many more at Hamswell House in the future.

No better or more romantic place
Venue Service

By Liz Porter, on 05 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

If Jane Austin had married she would have chosen no better or more romantic place than 17th century Hamswell House set, as it is, above a wide valley overlooking the rolling countryside outside Bath, Hamswell is the perfect location for a wedding . Our daughter married here on the first weekend of May, the blessing staged between two ancient lime trees on the lawn in front of the house – after which guests spilled onto the terrace for speeches and music and the first drinks of the day followed by dinner and dancing on the ideally placed marquee to the side of the house. Throughout Rupert and Victoria could not have been more helpful or welcoming, their suggestions for caterers , marquees , musicians where without exception excellent. Hamswell is the ideal place to have a wedding and to everyone involved we have to thank you for making the wedding a supremely happy memory for us all .

I can't imagine a more heavenly place
Venue Service

By Miranda Porter, on 04 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 06 May 2018

We had our wedding at Hamswell House on 6th May 2018 and I honestly can't imagine a more heavenly place for it. The house, gardens, rolling hills and woods filled with wild garlic are spectacular and our hosts, Rupert and Victoria, were so kind and supportive, it was like organising it with friends. From our first visit to the day, 14 months later, they were incredible. If you're considering Hamswell, you absolutely should go for it - I can't imagine a more incredible setting or happier place for the best day of your and your family's lives.

Stunning Setting - Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Adam and Hermione Wookey, on 28 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2017

An absolutely stunning setting for a wedding and Rupert and Victoria make the whole process run very smoothly - with suggestions for marquees, caterers and bands - and by adding those extra touches throughout your wedding day. We had a perfect day here and would not hesitate to recommend Hamswell House.

Fantastic Day
Venue Service

By Ben and Kate Meynell, on 18 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2017

Thank you for such a fantastic day on Saturday. We could see ourselves celebrating at Hamswell from the first time we visited and our day was nothing less than wonderful.

Everything just went so smoothly
Venue Service

By Damian and Liquarice Keeling, on 08 May 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2017

The venue really made our incredible day that bit more special. It looked absolutely stunning and everything just went so smoothly.

Fantastic setting , complete privacy
Venue Service

By James and Natasha Longman, on 01 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

Hamswell House provided us with a fantastic setting on our wedding day this September: the far-reaching views of peaceful countryside, romantically lit orangery and gardens together with the beautiful house itself all gave the most wonderful back-drop to our special day. We and our guests also had complete privacy to really enjoy the occasion. In addition Rupert and Victoria were experienced and helpful throughout the process, which made the planning stages all the more enjoyable.

All we can say in WOW!
Venue Service

By Peter and Sara Lloyd, on 01 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 20 Aug 2016

Myself and my Wife had our wedding reception here in August 2016 and is was perfect! Rupert and Victoria, the owners of Hamswell House, were fantastic people to deal with through out the run up to the big day, always extremely quick to respond and always happy to show you round. The view across the hills is stunning, equaled only by the grounds themselves which are beautiful and immaculately kept. Perfect for marquee events as they have a large flat area that is sheltered away so that it doesn't get too hot and, luckily for us as it was apocalyptic weather on the day, sheltered from wind and rain. It truly was the only venue we could find that would allow us to have the reception of our dreams without the stress or worry of the English weather getting in the way. Rupert has also had a power supply set up for the area so no need to source a noisy/smelly generator to power the day. I could not speak highly enough of this venue. I strongly suggest going to have a look round if you are thinking of a marquee reception as you won't be disappointed. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING RECEPTION PERFECT!
