About Woodlands Castle

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. 

Licensed to hold wedding ceremonies both inside and out, you can spend your entire day here. For summer ceremonies, the Victorian Veranda and Garden Pavilion are an enchanting choice, while the beautiful rooms indoors offer the perfect spot for romantic ceremonies during colder spells. Alternatively, there are a number of churches nearby for those wishing for a religious ceremony.

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!

Woodlands Castle boasts a great catering team that pride themselves on providing excellent, reasonably priced, locally sourced food to suit your tastes. With over thirty set menus to choose from there is something to suit everyone. Got a special dish in mind? Let the team know and they can create and price a bespoke menu especially for your big day.

    Food shocking

    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!
