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 stair case 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 90 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.

Most incredible venue
We got married here yesterday. It was the most incredible venue for our black tie Christmas wedding. Tall ceilings, impressive staircase, chandeliers, oil paintings and antique furniture. The coordinators and staff are very helpful so the day went as planned without a hitch. The rooms in the house are exquisite, the stables rooms are more basic though but convenient for guests to crash after the party. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was, they catered for all dietary requirements. The bar was well stocked with a variety of spirits for any cocktails.

Sincerest and deepest thanks
Can I please take this moment to extend our sincerest and deepest thanks to you and all of the staff at Grittleton House. You went above and beyond to make our special day the most magical experience - everything we had hoped it would be, and more. It's very difficult to find the words to express our levels of gratitude to you all. From start to finish of our experience with your team (from the moment we booked all those months/years ago, to the moment we left on Sunday), we have been blown away by the level of professionalism that we have experienced, as well as the level of care and compassion that you have all demonstrated. Your attention to detail and understanding of the intricate workings of weddings has been integral to our own preparations, but also the excellent execution of our big day, and for that we cannot thank you enough.

Dreaming to go back
Today marks 3 weeks since our big day at Grittleton House and all we can say is we’ve been dreaming to go back every day since. Emma, Vanessa, Tim and all other staff at Grittleton were absolutely amazing. Everything was so organised on the day but also on the lead up to it. As a family owned property they gave more than any normal wedding venue would, they were so helpful and tentative to our needs. They were personal and made us feel part of the Grittleton family. The grounds and the house itself are very very well kept with amazing features and perfect picture opportunities. The Bedrooms in the house are out of this world - along with the Drawing Room which is stunning! Thanks to the Chefs for our amazing wedding breakfast and evening food - so many of our guests complimented the menu from the tender beef to the sticky toffee pudding. Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter wedding - Grittleton is the perfect place! Thanks so much to everyone at Grittleton House for making our day the most memorable❤️ Mr & Mrs Greenland - 05/11/2021

THE best day of our lives
That was THE best day of our lives, thank you so much for making it run so smoothly, and for taking such good care of us. The house looked utterly gorgeous and so many people commented on what a fabulous wedding it was. There were loads but the various little touches like my dresses being hung up when I got to our room, the cake samples in the little bag left for us, your visits and reassurance and Ness coming to see us immediately after the ceremony made it really special, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making it the most perfect day. I still don’t know how you do it over and over with such genuine enthusiasm!
