Grittleton House Full Description
Nestled within the charming Cotswolds, Grittleton House takes pride of place in the picturesque village of Grittleton, alongside St Marys Church. Grittleton is just a short distance from Bath and Bristol with fabulous transport links to London and beyond, it is easily accessible to all. Accessed via a private tree lined drive, offering sweeping views over the house and grounds, you have the instant wow factor, from the second you arrive. The house itself is full of outstanding architecture and gothic features, with such a stunning backdrop there are plenty of opportunities to capture those magical moments with some wonderful photographs, no need to worry about the weather. The magnificence of the sweeping double staircase is a wonderful sight as you enter the main hall. The beauty of Grittleton House is that, as a family-owned house, it comes with ultimate flexibility. We want your wedding day to be unique, like no other. With your vision and our expertise, we can work together to make your dream a reality. Come for the day, or stay for the weekend, party till late, enjoy breakfast the next day with your family and friends, make our house your house, and memories to last a lifetime. We offer a choice of unique ceremony rooms, within the main house and grounds. Choose from the richness and warmth of the red gallery, or the light and airy tones of the yellow gallery. For something larger there is always the Victorian Orangery with stunning views of the terrace and formal gardens. In the glorious summer months enjoy an alfresco ceremony in the Sunken Italian Garden or the spectacular grounds. To complete the perfect package, we also have on site accommodation for approx. 80 guests (including family suites). The house offers luxurious en-suite master bedrooms, and family suites, with additional guest accommodation available within the converted Victorian Stables full of rustic charm.

Perfect Wedding Venue
If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue then Grittleton House is the place for you. From start to finish, Emma and the team make the whole process so very easy. The house itself is incredibly beautiful, and makes for a perfect backdrop for a magical ceremony. The bedrooms in the house are amazing, and the bridal dressing room is something to behold (think Bridgerton). The food is incredible. Our guests continuously complimented the food all day. We would thoroughly recommend the Cornish Pasties for the evening food choice. These come from Bude and everyone was really impressed with the quality and range of flavours available. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone. It was the perfect day for us.

A truly amazing and wonderful day
Just a quick note to thank you and your fantastic team for a truly amazing and wonderful day. The location, building and grounds were truly beautiful, creating the perfect backdrop for our wedding. Emma was amazing in the organisation and lead up to our day, so professional with no stone left unturned. On the day, from start to end, the team surpassed everything we ever dreamed of, Nelson and Vanessa were outstanding in every way, with complements from all our guests on our wedding breakfast.

the PERFECT wedding venue
Grittleton House was the perfect venue for our August 2023 wedding. Not only is the house itself stunning, but the grounds are well kept and look beautiful at anytime of year. We felt like royalty being able to host our friends and family in a venue like Grittleton. But above all else, if we had to do our wedding over again, we would choose Grittleton House every time for the staff alone. Emma, the wedding coordinator, is enough reason to have your wedding here as any. Even before we booked Grittleton, she was on hand to answer any questions, and was available whenever we needed her right up to the big day. She was always happy to help us, and be on hand to assist us when we had problems arise with other aspects of wedding planning. Her knowledge and experience meant that she was always able to advise us on the best options, all whilst making us feel like the only couple getting married at the venue. For someone like myself, who loves to plan but gets very easily stressed, Emma was the perfect coordinator, and I always felt so much more relaxed after speaking with her; there was no one else I would’ve trusted with our wedding as much as her. Nelson was on hand the day of our wedding, and was a joy to have around. During the set up of the wedding, he knew the names of everyone there, and their relation to myself and my husband, without me being aware he was ever introduced to them. He was aware of what task everyone was currently completing, and what still needed to be done. I had planned this wedding for just shy of 2 years, and Nelson knew the vision better in 20 minutes than I did. All of the wait staff from the wedding day and cleaning staff that we met the following morning were so polite and welcoming to this family home. Even when we were late checking out, they couldn’t have been kinder and more understanding. The food is lovely and all allergies and dietary requirements were catered for incredibly well. The bedrooms in the stables were clean and comfortable, but the rooms in the main house were outstanding – beautifully decorated and full of little amenities that made it feel even more homely. On the morning of the wedding, we had a couple of dramas, which could have easily dampened the mood of the whole day. One of which was handled incredibly well by the team, and we cannot thank them enough for their help and support; on the day, and after the wedding. For us, the best part of Grittleton House were all the little touches we received as the newlywed couple. I wont detail them on here, as they weren’t mentioned to us throughout the whole process and were lovely surprise to find out about on the day, and I would hate to take that away from other couples. But it really did make us feel like the most important people in the world, and the whole team felt like extended family. Thank you once again for having us, Mr & Mrs Seymour 12.08.23

Lost count of how many times we were told "best wedding ever" by guests!
When we began our wedding venue search we knew we wanted somewhere that was easily accessible for friends and family across the UK, that had onsite and local accommodation, offered exclusive hire and wasn't a hotel. With that in mind, Grittleton ticked all our boxes plus more that we didn't know we had! It's a strikingly beautiful and well-kept venue that is very grand but isn't overwhelming and still feels welcoming. From the very beginning Emma, the Wedding Coordinator was a great help and source of advice throughout the planning and final details and is so personable, you really don't feel like just another couple. During our wedding day, Nelson, Venue Manager was on hand to guide us through the day and make sure things ran exactly as we wanted them to, and it was reassuring to have him there. All of the staff were friendly and professional. The Drawing Room where the Bridal party get ready is beautiful and allows the Bride and bridal party to get ready in comfort, feeling relaxed with no worries about transport! We had the most perfect wedding day, with guests telling us how good and plentiful the food was, how great the venue and bedrooms were and how fun the day was. We wouldn't change a thing!

Perfect wedding day
We had the perfect wedding day at Grittleton House. The venue is incredibly beautiful and you can choose from a range of rooms and spaces for the different parts of the day so that it works for you. The venue hire includes support with planning, setting up and managing the day, helping to make sure everything runs smoothly. This was a huge help and took a lot of the pressure off us when planning the day. The food and drink was amazing, with huge portions and great staff. We are still getting compliments from guests about the canapés and meal! Another huge benefit of the venue is that is has onsite accommodation, which means that guests don’t need to travel at the end of the night. The rooms in the main house are beautiful and there is plenty of room in the stable block. We also booked out all of the rooms in the village at the Manor Farm and Neeld Arms B&Bs, which are just a short walk away. Grittleton House is not a budget venue, but for the quality of the venue, food and service, we felt it was excellent value for money.
