What's So Special About Hamswell House?

The romantic orangery and gardens of this award-winning private estate, Hamswell House, makse the ultimate setting for your wedding.

You will be surrounded by 50 acres of gardens and private landscape with breath-taking panoramic views over the Hamswell valley.

Their recommended caterers will serve you whatever you desire.

As night draws in, the twinkling stars above the dancefloor light up, so do the festoons around the marquee, the lanterns on the terrace and the soft floodlights on the main house and the Neptune fountain. The band strikes up… It is time for the first dance!

What Couples Say

“Hamswell House made all our wedding dreams (and more!) come true. We got married in July 2023 at Hamswell House. I am from Hawai’i and my husband is from Chepstow, so it was important to us to have a venue near his hometown. We also had guests traveling from Hawai’i and Australia, and we were keen to give them a feel for the beautiful English countryside, while also staying in the vicinity of a city where our guests could overnight. Hamswell House is perfectly located, roughly 15mins from the center of Bath, with Taxis serving the venue. We both knew from the moment we drove down the beautiful lane into the driveway of Hamswell House that we had to have this venue, and it was easily one of the best decisions we have ever made! Rupert limits the number of weddings at the venue, so couples are given a lot of flexibility to plan their wedding and make it unique to them. It really felt like we had a blank canvas to begin with, and we appreciated this SO MUCH, having visited numerous other venues (both in Hawai’i and in the UK) that felt more like wedding factories with no space for couples to personalize. The limited number of events also allows the lawns and gardens to really flourish, which completely enhanced their charm and character. We had our ceremony in front of the historic and gorgeous lime tree with the stunning house as the backdrop when Kiran and I pulled up in our car. Our guests enjoyed strolling around the grounds, checking out the herb gardens, walking along the fountain, and posing for photos under the breathtaking wisteria pergola walkways. We really wanted to give our guests a variety of settings to enjoy. Of course, Kiran and I (and our photographer 😉) loved all the different and stunning backgrounds for our photos as well. We had roughly 110 guests, and we received endless compliments from them throughout the evening on the venue! Lastly, and most importantly, Rupert was an absolute dream to work with. He was quick to respond to inquiries, and his hospitality and kindness is truly out of this world. Rupert came to the rescue of one of our elderly guests even though he had no obligation to, and he treated them with so much respect and compassion. He also put us in touch with our fantastic wedding planner, Olivia Riddiford. We are so grateful that we were able to book Hamswell House – If you are looking to get married in South West England, please trust us when we say you do not need to look any further than this perfect venue.”

“We were married at Hamswell in early June and we couldn’t have asked for a more enchanting and magical setting for our day. We had a the official ceremony under the lime tree which worked really well – many cited this as their favourite part of the day, as it felt unique and non-traditional. The gardens and views are absolutely beautiful and the perfect backdrop to every photo. The whole venue has an excellent flow to keep guests moving to different areas, finishing in the marquee. We would also highly recommend Epic Caterers. Rupert could not have been more helpful and responsive throughout – it is well worth leaning on his expertise during planning as he knows what works. We would highly recommend Hamswell House for what one of our guests called “a destination wedding in England”
