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. 

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.

29th Jan 11 Steve & Marilyn
Venue Service

By Steve & Marilyn Nicholas, on 17 Feb 2011

A huge thank you to everyone at Woodlands Castle for making our wedding day so special. The venue, location, service,food and disco was 100 per cent. Everyone had a wonderful time and having the Premier Inn next door makes Woodlands Castle as idea location for a wedding. Once again thank you so much for all your hard work.

Wedding & Reception
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Smith, on 06 Jan 2011

We didn't think we'd find an exclusive use venue as beautiful as Woodlands when we had just 40 guests in the day. We wanted something really different and getting married on your rose trellised veranda just made it all the more special. The food and staff where fantastic. We hope to have a reason to see you all again soon.
