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. 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!

We have just arrived home and want to write and say how good all the staff and eve at Orchardleigh and what a truly fabulous wedding. So many of our friends and relatives have said it was the best wedding ever! As I have 2 more girls, we expect to be back again - but not too soon I hope!

Cannot fault the venue, but sadly the organisation at the venue is poor. The venue forgot our wedding cake on the day!

Fantastic day

All at Orchardleigh especially helped so much leading up to the wedding and on the day. A special thank you for the help you gave me Matt during the morning, I don't think I would have coped without you! We had a fantastic day and a lovely honeymoon. It's a shame it is all over, we don't know what to do with ourselves now and Its not great being back at work either!

Eve and team. We just want to thank Eve for coordinating our wedding at Orchardleigh house. It was a fab day that we will never forget! We had many compliments from guests on the venue, but also the helpful and relaxed attitude of the staff. Everything went exactly as we hoped and we were so happy that we chose to have our wedding at this venue.

with all our love and thanks
Venue Service

By very pleased bride, on 15 Jul 2008

thank you so very much for helping to organise such a fantastic day for us last friday. it was the best day of our lives and a large part of that was down to the venue.everyone has commented on how grand and spectacular the setting is but down to earth and welcoming at the same time, a difficult combination to manage but done perfectly by you. there were lots of small touches that we were not even aware of at the time but all contributed to the overall success. i'm sure all my guests will recommend Orchardleigh as a wedding venue in the future.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff
Venue Service

By june, on 27 Jun 2008

We would like to thank all the staff at Orchardleigh for making our wedding Sunday in June not just a very special day for us, but a wonderful experience for all who attended. Nothing was too much trouble for your staff, who were all so approachable, cheerful and obliging, despite being so busy. Most especially, we would like to express our thanks to Sarah, who organised our wedding. She is not only a charming young lady you chose well for the post!, but totally professional, courteous and extremely competent. Our appreciation also to the chefs for such an appetising meal. Many comments made to us by guests only reinforce what we have said here. Orchardleigh is the absolutely perfect setting for these occasions and we hope you will continue in the business of making people as happy as you did on Sunday for many years to come.
