About

Up to 150 Guests

Midelney Manor is a unique and magical wedding venue set in the heart of the Somerset countryside. Its been in the Cely Trevilian family for 500 years and is the perfect choice for creative and imaginative couples. Whilst it can easily be a traditional English country wedding venue there is a dash of boheimian elegance about Midelney! It's an idyllic setting surrounded by ancient oak trees, beautiful rose covered weathered walls and flowerbeds bursting with colour. There are lots of spaces on offer with gorgeous backdrops for your wedding photography. A marquee or tipi sits perfectly in the Round Garden next to the 18th century Potting Shed and if a woodland blessing is your thing then Washams Woods at the bottom of the garden is a magical setting.

The Potting Shed is a fabulous rustic barn which sits in the heart of the garden and is adorned with festoon lights, chesterfield sofas, a bar and mismatched tables and chairs. It is a versatile space which is licensed for wedding ceremonies or can be used as a bar lounge area to chill out in if you've exhausted yourself dancing in the marquee next door! With its old stonework and ancient beams covered in 1920s flower show prize cards, you and your guests will be instantly charmed by this wonderful space and its quirky charm.

Midelney offers an intimate, friendly and flexible approach, Alice the owner wants to make sure that your day is exactly how you dreamt it would be. There's a long list of trusted local suppliers including caterers and florists, but she is equally happy for you to source your own if you wish; after all it's your day and it should be your way!

    Absolutely Wonderful

    Wow, I am not even sure where to start with our review of Midelney Manor, absolutely everything was incredible. From the first time we set eye on the venue we felt so welcomed and once we saw the beautiful walled gardens and potting shed, we knew it would be the perfect setting for our wedding day.

    Alice was exceptional. From our first email she was professional, helpful, passionate and approachable. From day one it felt like she wanted us to have a wonderful wedding, listening to our brief and helping in delivering everything we wished for. Alice was always clear in her communication, helpful in our decision making and compassionate when we faced some hurdles along the way.

    Every guest has mentioned how beautiful the venue was and we can only agree with them.
    Midelney Manor is the perfect setting for your wedding and Alice is the perfect host. We cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

    Beautiful Venue, hidden away in the Somerset countryside !

    Midelney Manor is a bit of a secret, and we are so glad we found it after looking at 7 other Country House style venues in the Somerset, Dorset area. It enabled us to have either the beautifully old Potting Shed option should rain stop play, or the Marquee on lawns style...or indeed both which we did. This took away the worry of inclement weather. Alice provided great guidance and advice as to what works well (and not so well) as she has a wealth of experience and contacts for everything you will need to think of with so many different format ceremonies over the years. Her style is unobtrusive but present for when needed!. The Walled gardens are superbly well kept in rambling roses, over old stone and brickwork walls style. Plus there is the Woodland walk, for strolls in the evening to chill and relax looking at the gorgeous countryside. Plenty of parking and local places for guests to stay and make a great weekend of it . The Wing for Groom and Groomsmen or guests to stay in is full of character and extremely comfortable. Highly recommend this Venue.

    Beautiful venue and Alice is so helpful!

    Such an incredible venue with beautiful walled gardens. We had so many compliments about the venue! Alice was so helpful with any request we had and was very flexible when we unfortunately had to postpone the wedding due to the pandemic. Alice helped us find great suppliers and made sure everything went smoothly on the day. Would highly recommend!

    Midelney Manor's reply:

    Thank you so much Nina! It was such a beautiful day and we loved having you both here at Midelney!

    I could have stayed for ever!

    Midelney Manor is a very special place and the perfect setting for a wedding or event occasion - a beautiful house with so much history and magical, private and very pretty gardens. Our host and event planner Alice lives here with her family and nothing is too much trouble, she thinks of everything. There is a pub in the garden called the Potting Shed, my favourite part - a great party venue for a smaller event and the perfect bar area for a wedding or larger event, rustic and quirky with masses of character The whole place is a class act, I could have stayed for ever!

    They have it down to a fine art!

    “When we embarked on our journey to get married we had no idea of how Midelney Manor and the Acton family would add to our incredible day in every way. Quite simply they made it magical.

    Midelney Manor is the perfect setting for an English Country wedding combining the timeless elegance of the Manor itself with the fun and “can do” attitude of Alice, who simply could not do enough to ensure the day went so perfectly. The marquee was splendid, the food sublime ,they have it down to a fine art.

    We cannot recommend this venue highly enough if anyone is thinking of a place to get married at look no further, our only criticism is that now being happily married we can’t do it again!!”

    Alice could not have been more helpful

    Midelney Manor is enchanting. The beautiful house with really lovely grounds made for a truly wonderful wedding amid the tranquillity of the Somerset Levels. Six months on we are still getting comments from friends and family on how it was the most perfect setting for a wedding. Alice could not have been kinder, more thoughtful or more helpful and her recommended caterers were genuinely brilliant. She made the whole process entirely stress free for us. We had the best day and would recommend it to anyone.
