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!

We fell in love with Hamswell the moment we saw it and knew it would be perfect for our wedding and it certainly delivered. All of our guests were commenting on the spectacular view. It truly was the most amazing day; it definitely wouldn’t have been the same without such a fantastic venue.

We held our September Wedding reception in the grounds of Hamswell House. This idyllic country location was the talking point of our guests with its breath taking views, stunning gardens and beautiful architecture. With a Marquee on the Lawn and a drinks reception in the Orangery, Hamswell House truly was the perfect setting for our country wedding giving the wow factor to our unforgettable day!
