One happy couple
Me and my wife recently got married at Backwell House in North Somerset and could not have been happier! We got engaged & married only within 4 months so everything was somewhat last minute. After a couple months of looking we found Backwell House! It looked perfect however we needed to see it in person. The house has beautiful grounds, the design is very nice and we loved the style. It is conveniently located within an easy 20 min drive from the city of Bristol. The 9 rooms were all unique and fun with amazing views and cozy beds. One of the first and biggest highlights we noticed as soon as we visited was the kindness and helpfulness of the staff. Backwell has a lovely small, tight nit team of staff at the ready to help you with whatever you need. Sam, the manager, always had a huge smile on his face and, like everyone on the team, did several jobs and always went above and beyond. Emily worked with us on planning the wedding and obviously has a love for the jobs and is very good at it, always making sure we had what we needed as well as making sure we gave them what they needed. A very attentive, talented person, who always made sure everything was how WE wanted and that we were comfortable and happy on the day of the wedding. Niko was another “Jack of all trades”, he “runs” about the house doing this that and everything. He seemed to work nonstop and always have energy. The whole staff are very professional and polite. The food always comes out in a beautiful presentation and is beyond delicious. All in all, my wife and I could not have picked a better venue and STRONGLY recommend Backwell house to ANYONE getting married, throwing an event, or just looking for a lovely holiday in the North Somerset country side, or even just a lovely meal. Backwell is the place! A tremendous thank you to the incredible team. - Mr & Mrs Janssen
