Somerley is a privately owned Country Estate located on the Hampshire/Dorset border, just 25 minutes from Bournemouth, 30 minutes from Southampton and 90 minutes from London.
Somerley House is a hidden jewel; not open to the public, it offers that perfect mix of luxury, elegance, style and grandeur - whilst never feeling intimidating or impersonal. The House is home to Lord and Lady Normanton and their family, so comfort and a warm welcome are always at the forefront of every guest’s experience, along with utmost privacy and a meticulous attention to each detail.
Somerley is available to hire for weddings and private parties. The House itself can comfortably accommodate a wedding ceremony for 160 guests, a seated wedding breakfast for up to 140 guests and a drinks reception/evening party for up to 200 guests. Alternatively, the gardens make the perfect setting for a marquee reception for up to 200 guests. The House offers 9 large and beautifully appointed bedrooms with spectacular views of the surrounding gardens, woodland and rolling parkland for guests or family groups who wish to stay. An additional 12 guests can also stay within the Estate at a newly refurbished Georgian Farmhouse, named Ellingham Farmhouse, located only a 5 minute drive from the Main House.
Set in 7,000 acres of glorious Hampshire countryside, Somerley offers couples a venue for almost every style of wedding or celebration. Whether a bit of stylish luxury is your heart’s desire or you have dreams of a more relaxed boho celebration, a woodland wedding or a glamping gathering, the Somerley Weddings Team will give you a friendly welcome and work with you so that every detail of your special day is just perfect.
