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.

What can we say about Grittleton... phenomenal!
What can we say about Grittleton House...phenomenal! We got married almost two weeks ago and we have been wishing to do it all over again ever since. We can't praise Emma, Vanessa, Ben and the rest of the team enough, they made our day incredible from start to finish. Anything we needed, they were on it. From setting everything up, checking our guests in, making sure we always had a drink in our hand, to telling me to think about boring shopping lists to calm my nerves as I walked to the ceremony! The planning process wouldn't have been the same without Emma, no question was silly or too much trouble, she couldn't have done anything more for us. The house and grounds itself are just absolutely stunning, we have had no end of comments from our guests about how beautiful everything was. The food and drinks were outstanding, the coordination, the service, the gorgeous rooms, the list goes on and on. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Fantastic venur
Our wedding day on the 20th August at Grittleton House was truly fantastic! From the initial virtual lockdown tour, right until the day of our wedding, Emma was so helpful and was always there to answer any questions that came up. On the actual day itself, Emma, Nelson and the rest of the team were amazing! They ensured that everything ran smoothly and that we didn’t have to worry about anything. Our guests are still complementing the brilliant food and venue. Thank you all!

Everything was amazing beyond words
We got married at Grittleton House on the 6th August 2022, everything about our weekend was amazing beyond words. From the moment we arrived on the Friday, we were made to feel as if the house was our own home, Emma, Nelson and the whole team were exceptional, not just on the day, but in the whole preparations. Our guests have all commented on what a fantastic venue Grittleton House is and were wowed by the quality of the food and drinks. For us it was truly magical and Grittleton House will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you all again for making it the most perfect day for us!!

The day went seamlessly!
We had the most perfect day at Grittleton House for our wedding last week. Emma, Vanessa, Nelson and the team blew us away with their dedication and organisation. The day went seamlessly! The venue itself is stunning and beautifully maintained, with the grounds providing an ideal setting for a wander, sit down and the all-important photos! The food was also absolutely delicious - from the canapés, wedding breakfast and evening food. Our guests couldn't believe how amazing everything was! We cannot fault a thing with GH and the team and are forever grateful to them for giving us our perfect day.

We could not have asked for a better venue
We could not have asked for a better venue; the whole team made our special day amazing! The staff were fantastic, they were all happy, polite and hardworking anything we needed they were able to sort. The venue was set up perfectly and is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited, they had everything we needed and the team made sure that everything ran smoothly and most importantly that we did not need to worry about anything on the day! All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue was and the gardens, they also commented on how amazing and accommodating all of the staff was. I would recommend Grittleton and team to anyone as it made our day even more perfect. The food, wow! The food was amazing everything was perfect and most of all there was no full plates left, everyone said how amazing the food was. A massive thank you to Emma, Nelson and team of how amazing this was and made our day so special! Thank you!! We wish we could give them 10stars!!!

It was truly the wedding day we imagined and more!
Me and my husband got married at the end of May 2022 and our whole experience with Grittleton House was magical!! The day completely exceeded all our expectations and it was truly the wedding day we imagined and more! We are so so grateful to the lovely, helpful and kind staff who run Grittleton House. The venue is stunning and has many room options that can be used on your special day for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception, along with a beautiful spacious room for the bridal party to get ready in and also the amazing surrounding grounds! Everything we chose for our big day from the cocktails to canapés to food were perfect! The planning process was also so smooth and stress free! The team were always on hand to answer any queries and arrange meetings and they were also fantastic on the morning of our wedding when displaying our decorations as we wished! (A special shout out to Emma, Vanessa and Nelson - thank you!). We loved this venue, it was the most beautiful day and our guests to this day, cannot stop complementing the beauty of the venue, the staff, the amazing food and our wedding day as a whole! Thank you so so much, we wish we could do it all over again!
