About Hestercombe

Hestercombe is the quintessential romantic English country garden and the perfect place for your wedding. This breathtakingly beautiful garden, comprising over fifty acres, has been lovingly restored to its original period splendour and is now a historically significant garden of international acclaim. Add to that the enchanting Ham-stone Orangery, the charming barn-style Bampfylde Hall and a country house steeped in history, and you've discovered the ultimate English country wedding venue.

Nestled in Somerset countryside, this picture-perfect venue is conveniently located for your wedding guests - only 3 miles from Taunton and just 15 minutes from junction 25 of the M5. Licensed for civil ceremonies, you can enjoy your ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening party all at one magnificent location. No need to worry about getting from A to B or handing out directions.

When you get married at Hestercombe, you'll have access to the entire estate for your wedding day - fifty acres of beautiful gardens and a collection of historical and unique buildings for you and your guests to enjoy. The iconic Orangery with its sweeping lawns, the Temple Arbour for a 'hideaway' ceremony and the Bampfylde Hall with its high ceilings, fairy light canopy and dramatic timber beams, perfect for an evening party.

A picturesque backdrop to your wedding, you can explore Hestercombe’s lakes, cascades, temples, rills, sun-dappled pathways and romantic corners. Every location giving you the opportunity to capture unique images that will tell the story of your big day, whether you imagine wild and boho woodland wedding photos or pictures packed with romance, whimsy and blooms.
