An idyllic wedding and events venue in Somerset.

Set in the valley within the Duchy of Cornwall's Newton Park Estate, Priston Mill is a breathtaking part of the Somerset countryside, where the views are far-reaching, and the care and attention given by the team will leave a lasting impression.

Two fabulous venues to choose from, in one stunning location. Priston Mill has a dream-like quality. The ancient buildings which have been carefully restored including the stone-walled barn and 10th centurty working Watermill will captivate you and your guests. It is certainly one of the most memorable of wedding venues in Bath and North East Somerset.

    Best day of our lives! ❤

    Well what can I say? Coral & I got married here on Sunday 22nd August 2021 at the Watermill. It was the best day of our lives! Absolutely beautiful venue especially for photos. I will definitely point out how many people raved about the chicken! It was the BEST meal we have ever had! Finally, we really enjoyed our disco at the end of the night! Thank you to the team once again this was a day to remember xx

    Professional but friendly

    Everyone was super helpful in the planning process and always available to answer any questions. On the day itself Olly and Chris were incredible at running the day and taking care of everything. They were professional while also being super friendly and warm.

    The best decision of my life!

    I believe you are doing everything perfectly. The feedback from our guests was that it was one of the best weddings they have been to and that needs to be attributed to your staff, the food and the venue itself.

    We didnt want to go anywhere else

    From the food to just the friendly faces, everything impressed us. Whatever we wanted or needed the staff were there with it and they were so helpful. On setting up, Olly was there with anything I needed. All the team responded to my emails in less than 24 hours and were so helpful. On the day everyone commented on how delicious the food was but they also commented on how quickly and efficiently the staff worked to clear.

    Absolutely flawless

    We’d really like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the staff there and to everyone involved. From the bar staff to the kitchen. And everybody in between.

    The day was absolutely flawless. The weather was beautiful, everything ran smoothly and to schedule. The staff were very helpful throughout the whole day and night. The food was excellent. The wine was lovely. It was just a perfect day. We had many guests complementing how beautiful everything was and what a stunning venue it was.

    We looked at many different wedding venues before deciding to go with Priston Mill and based on how well everything went, we were both so happy and it confirmed with us that we had 100% chosen the right venue.
    We would be very happy to recommend Priston Mill to anyone.

    Thankyou

    We just wanted to say a very overdue THANK YOU for all your help and hard work that helped to make our wedding day (5 months ago yesterday) so amazing!
    We loved every minute of it and are so grateful to you all. At every stage before and during the day your attentiveness to detail, calmness, kindness, knowledge and experience was second to none - thank you. One of the many things that blessed us on the day was the joy, warmth and helpfulness of the waiting staff. Many of our guests commented on this too along with how delicious the food was as well as the amazing cheese. One of our friends sent us a video of our first dance and we smile each time we watch it as we can see a couple of waitresses dancing on the mezzanine, entering in to the spirit of the evening - delightful!

    Could not thave asked for more!

    From our very first enquiry we felt very well supported and valued. We felt like we were the only wedding you were dealing with - such personal service. Any questions we asked we didn't feel stupid and allowed us to be in control of the whole day.

    It was better than our expectations!

    The seamlessness of everything on the day was the most impressive thing - everything happened per the timetable already discussed. Our table decorations and settings were laid out perfectly. Everyone received the meals they were expecting with no issue. Finally the whole team looked happy to be there on the day and were a very helpful and calming influence.

    we wouldnt change a thing

    We wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for running our wedding so beautifully on Saturday night. We knew from the moment we met Olivia and saw the Tythe Barn that Priston Mill was the venue for us, and we were not disappointed in any way. The Christmas tree especially surpassed our expectations!!! Our guests have all raved about the food and beautiful layout of the venue. I think they greatly appreciated the bar as well (the bride certainly did anyway). Both of our parents have remarked how easy everything has been. We still can’t believe we just dropped everything off and you made it look so spectacular. Thanks for going the extra mile with our new guest book too. In a nutshell we loved our wedding and wouldn’t change a single thing!

    Five stars for the food

    We would like to highlight that we had numerous guests comment on the quality of the food and the high quality of service from Paul, our Event Manager on the day. I've not attended a wedding before where both of these aspects were noted. Our guests felt as if we had pulled out all of the stops and this is a reflection of the work the team put in on the day.

    Could no thave asked for more!

    Genuinely one of the most breath taking and beautiful wedding venues ever. From the moment my husband and I walked in, it was an immediate yes from us. From the vaulted ceiling and balcony to the bar and cosy lounge with fire, genuinely stunning. Staff were incredible on the day, could not have asked for more. 5*!!!

    Wow

    Wow - what else can I say. We had the best day and you made all our guests feel special. So many compliments all round about the food which was just perfect. Would recommend 100%. Day was so smooth and stress free and the Watermill was the perfect setting.

    Complete denial of complaints

    Parts of our day were perfect. The venue looked great & the staff worked so hard. Unfortunately, we had numerous problems before, during & after the wedding. There were errors on the paperwork, some of our things (inc 4 bottles of champagne) went missing, & more worryingly, money was stolen from a lockup.

    I spoke to a manager to find out what investigation had been carried out about the money & where our stuff was. All I wanted was for someone to apologise that we'd had a bad experience & reassure me they'd look into it. But I didn't get any of that.

    Instead, the manager called me & was very sarcastic & dismissive. Everytime I tried to talk, he interrupted me until he eventually went silent & said: "I hope that pause was long enough as I wouldn't want to be accused of interrupting you". I have never been spoken to so badly in a professional context, nor have I been accused of lying.

    I am so shocked that such a popular venue doesn't have a more professional way of dealing with complaints. I've worked in customer service & the first thing you learn is that you listen, treat with respect, never lose your rag & try to deal with the problem (after investigating). Instead I got a blanket denial of any responsibility, no apology & a threat of legal action if I posted online about it. I wasn’t blaming them for a minute. But a theft occurred on their premises and it should be taken seriously.

    It’s such a shame because if the customer service had been better I would be wholeheartedly recommending this place. And I still do to an extent. Just be wise to the fact that they won’t help you if something goes wrong.

    Our Perfect Day!

    We got married on the 18/08 and had the best day ever! Laura, our wedding co-ordinator was absolutely perfect from start to finish. They provided a quick response to my copious amounts of emails and questions and nothing was too much trouble. On the day Laura made sure everything went perfectly and even helped fan my dress so all the bridesmaids could walk down the aisle without any gaps - There was nothing she wouldn't do to help. The caters Priston Mill use are amazing and our food was perfect. I would recommend Priston Mill for anybody getting married, but particularly the watermill if you have a wedding with sub 100 guests. It is quaint but very personable and unique. For us, it was the perfect day - Thank you Priston Mill xXx
