Full Description
Nestled in the rolling hills of Somerset, Pennard House is a beautiful, family owned Georgian manor house, surrounded by walled gardens, wildflower meadows and cider orchards. With everything within walking distance, your bespoke wedding takes place in one charming location, with complete exclusivity, whether it’s for one day or an entire weekend! Why not come the night before and enjoy supper with your loved ones, cooked by our in-house chef, and relax knowing everything’s ready for your special day. Wake up and get ready in our bridal suite and then tie the knot under blue skies in our stunning outside pavilion or inside in our beautiful Napier room. Alternatively, the picturesque 14th century village church is just a few steps beyond our garden. After your ceremony, enjoy a glass of champagne and canapés on the south facing lawn with plenty of space for photographs and even lawn games - Croquet anyone? Your celebrations would then move to our stunning 18th century Coach House. Host your wedding breakfast amongst wooden beams and fairy lights then dance the night away with friends and family in our unique party space with custom made dance floor, bespoke bar and candlelit cosy seating booths. When it’s time to say goodnight, you have complimentary use of our beautiful Orchard suite and your loved ones can also stay nearby in our beautiful bedrooms or under the stars in our 16ft luxury tipis in the garden. Whatever you want your day to be Pennard House will make it happen, the epitome of dreamy elegance whilst remaining a warm country home, it’s the perfect setting for your romantic, rustic wedding.
