About Woodlands Castle

Ruishton, Taunton
Somerset, TA3 5LU

Situated in the heart of Somerset and nestled within 12 acres of private parkland is Woodlands Castle, a 17thcentury country house wedding venue. Located just a short distance from Taunton and its amenities and transport links and with plenty of character and charm, this is the perfect setting for your special day.

The time immediately after the ceremony is the ideal opportunity to explore the gardens, take some time with your new spouse and capture those all-important wedding photographs. With manicured lawns and a pond, you’re guaranteed some stunning shots.

For your reception, there are a number of room options including intimate and cosy spaces for smaller celebrations or grand rooms ideal for larger parties. On the day, the house and grounds are exclusively yours to use as you wish, from tea and cake on the lawn to live bands in the Orchard Suite, the choice is completely yours!

Venue Service

By debbi perkins, on 30 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2017

Lovely staff great, however, a cramped small space when you arrive, sat near the door of the marquee and freezing cold and the food was shocking we all went to Mac Donald’s round the corner after. I have been to many weddings all over the country but I have to say the starter and mains were absolutely terrible!! Would not recommend this place in a million years!

Everything went better than we could ever have imagined. It may have rained but the venue was spot on and we had the special day that we wanted. It was the only place we found that could be flexible to our needs. Highly recommend it.

Venue Service

By Mrs Marilyn Nicholas, on 23 Feb 2011

Steve & Marilyn would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Woodlands Castle for making our Wedding Day so special. The venue, service, food, disco, was superb. Woodlands Castle is a fantastic place to get married we couldn't fault anything and would recommend it to anyone. We had the hog roast all our guests thoroughly enjoyed it and the evening food was great too. Having the Premier Inn next door makes Woodlands Castle in a good position as the guests can walk back at the end of the evening. Once agan a huge thank you to all of you at Woodlands.
