About Orchardleigh Estate

Taken straight from a fairytale, the grand 19th Century Victorian house and the surrounding 500 acres of stunning grounds, provide a truly enchanting setting for your special day.

Located just 10 miles from historic Bath, the venue is perfect all year round. The gorgeous gardens are look stunning in the summer sunshine, and the open fires provide a cosy atmosphere in the winter months.

Exclusively yours and offering the grandeur of a traditional Stately Home; from the elegant Ballroom that can hold up to 165 guests, to the cosy Morning Room, the impressive full sized Billiard room and the regal surroundings of the Great Hall, Orchardleigh welcomes you to use the spaces however you wish to create your perfect wedding day.

Orchardleigh House is fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies both inside and out, with the addition of two brand new outdoor ceremony spaces in 2019. If you’re planning a more traditional service, there are two beautiful churches within the estate. Neither church requires you to be from the local parish to use the facility, so it is open to all. St. Mary’s Church is ideally located on its own private island. As there is no electricity supplied to the church's remote location, all wedding ceremonies are conducted purely by candlelight for a magical, romantic setting.

St. Mary’s also boasts its own helipad so you can arrive in dramatic style! From the Bell Longranger Helicopter to a Bentley Continental GTC, Orchardleigh offers a variety of wedding transportation for you to hire.

For overnight guests, the estate can accommodate up to 85 guests in 41 opulent bedrooms in the main house.

Orchardleigh Estate is an award-winning venue; it was declared Somerset Wedding of the Year, named second best UK Venue by Perfect Wedding Magazine, and voted ninth in Marie Claire’s Best UK Venues!

    Best venue we could have hoped for!

    This venue truly has it all. From the moment we were shown around the venue last year by Claire we fell in love. Our day was made so special by Phoebe and the rest of the staff where nothing was too much trouble for them. We had our day on a Friday in January and we were so lucky with the weather, however we viewed the venue on a cold wintry day and it looked just as spectacular.
    All the guests praised the staff, food and the venue so much it really made our day. If you're after a wow factor venue that has amazing food, drink, accommodation and caters to your every need this is the place for you. Cannot recommend Orchardleigh enough.

    Magical wedding day in the walled garden

    We had an amazing wedding day at Orchardleigh walled garden. The staff were amazing and did absolutely everything to make our special day perfect. A huge thank you to Carl for organising our day and to Jacqui and Nic in the office for ensuring our day went smoothly. We both couldn’t have asked for a more magical day!

    Fabulous food, beautiful venue

    We got married in The Walled Garden at the end of August, and just wanted to say what a fantastic day it was! The venue is beautiful and the food was superb. We had a surprise helicopter ride, organised by my father and it just topped off an already incredible day! The staff were all very helpful and professional and our wedding coordinator oversaw everything to make sure the day ran smoothly so that we could focus on celebrating with our loved ones! A fabulous venue in a beautiful setting!
