About Orchardleigh Estate

Orchardleigh House, Orchardleigh Estate, Frome
Somerset, BA11 2PH

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.

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.

Our wedding at Orchardleigh House was the most perfect day we could have ever imagined! Everyone felt so welcome in the house and we were so grateful at their willingness to work with us on the elements of our day. The setting was stunning and so many people commented on it. The food was DELICIOUS! everything from the canapes to the main meal and fresh breads for the cheeses. We couldn't have hoped for a kinder wedding coordinator than Sarah. Her attention to detail helped the day run so smoothly. We have recommended Orchardleigh to so many people.

We want to thank Orchardleigh and Eve so much for organising our wedding reception for us. We had such a fantastic time and understand the amount of hardwork that must of gone into organising everything for us. Also the food was amazing.

They've got it right!
Venue Service

By LP, on 13 Sep 2008

My friends will tell you I am impossible to please, but this place is faultless! Everything about it was my dream come true. Our coordinator Sarah was great! Her relaxed attitude and inability to get stressed was just what I needed from start to finish. My husband, my mum & dad and our best man all commented on what a differene it made having a person with such a calming influence, just when it was needed! The venue itself is stunning, set in the most amazing surroundings and you definately know that you're in a well loved family home, which was all ours for the day. Nothing starchy & clinical about it at all. We designed our own menu with Matt the chef, and the end result would have rivalled any top London restaurant. Perfect. The staff were so helpful and the owner a real charmer! For such a busy venue they've really got it right.

We had the most awsome day
Venue Service

By lovedup, on 03 Sep 2008

Eve and the team at Orchardleigh made our day so perfect much of that was down to there hard work behind the scenes. We barely noticed they were there which made our day as the house felt like our own. all our guests were blown away by the place. we really appreciate what they did for us. We hope to go back in the near future, either for the lodges or with another wedding. We are trying to convince our friends to get married there
