The Lydiard House is a stunning historic house set in 260 acres of parkland on the western edge of Swindon. From small intimate wedding ceremonies to evening receptions with up to 100 guests,
The Lydiard House offers a fabulous location within the listed historic house and parkland to hold your wedding or civil ceremony. The venue is also a unique location for conferences, private dinners, naming ceremonies, and parties.
The beautiful, Georgian stately home has medieval origins and was remodelled in the 17th century and the 1740s to include a grand entrance and lots of details inspired by classical architecture. These include the elaborate pediment on the front of the house, the corner towers and the detail seen around the windows on the ground floor.
The Lydiard House provides a high level of client service and assistance to ensure the smooth-running of your special day from start to finish. Our wedding packages are flexible, and we are very happy to meet with you to discuss your requirements in greater detail and show you around the venue.
We have two ceremony room options: the Bolingbroke Suite and the Main Hall within Lydiard House itself. The Bolingbroke Suite can accommodate up to 65 guests, and the Main Hall has a slightly smaller capacity of 55 guests – perfect for an intimate ceremony. The wedding breakfast and evening reception take place within our Luxborough Suite.The Luxborough can comfortably accommodate 80 guests for a 3 course sit down meal, rising to 90 for a BBQ, or a hot or cold fork buffet, and to 100 for an evening reception
Included in the price of your package are two guest bedrooms and a bridal suite. An additional 34 en-suite bedrooms are available for guests to book.
We are delighted to offer bespoke menus and drinks packages. From delectable formal dinners to a selection of buffet menus, our wide choice is sure to delight everyone. All of our menus are based on fresh local produce and top quality ingredients handpicked by our head chef.

Perfect Wedding reception
We had our wedding reception at Lydiard House in March 2014 and the team did a great job, everything ran smoothly from start to finish and I have to highly praise the food, not only did they deviate from their set menu to accommodate our sausage and mash request, but the starter, main and dessert were all highly praised by all of our guests, as were the late night bacon rolls they provided. Overall a brilliant experience and I would highly recommend this venue.Sent on 16/06/2014

A stunning place to wed!!
Lydiard House is a beautiful and picturesque place to get married any time of the year. We gor married in December and the listed building is ideal for the photos both inside and out. The ceremony is intimate and the sweeping staircase is gorgeous to exit onto when the ceremony is over. Chartridge do everything in their power to make it a perfect day and the organising of the wedding was stress-free and thorough. The staff were lovely and would do everything to make sure the day went without a hitch and it pretty much did. The only downside was the bar tender who could have been a little bit more enthusiastic about serving the guests. On the whole it is a great venue, not too expensive but certainly not too shabby!!Sent on 06/06/2014
