For those wanting a more traditional ceremony, there are some beautiful churches close by, just ask us for advice.
Drakestone House is a superb backdrop for a marquee wedding on our lawns for your special day. Our marquee can take up to 100 guests for dinner and dancing. At night the house and terrace is floodlit making it atmospheric well into the evening.

"The whole property and its grounds is beautiful throughout and it's an absolutely wonderful experience to stay in. Kate was a fantastic and flexible host that couldn't have been more accommodating. 100% recommend and would definitely look to come back again."
Mr J Hatten
Wow well I don’t even know where to begin. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. From start to finish everything just came together and in our opinion it couldn’t have gone any better. I just wish I could have paused time as the whole day flew by. We can’t believe that the first venue we viewed and fell in love with could end up being so perfect. The house and marquee looked amazing in the day and night. All of our family really enjoyed being able to spend the whole weekend together in the house and celebrate bringing our two families together. Thank you Rebecca for everything you did to help us before and during the wedding, we really appreciate it. So many people commented on the beautiful venue and the really helpful staff that ensured everything came together smoothly. I am sure this wouldn’t have happened without your help. Please pass on our thanks to Trevor for helping us in the evening and during set up. Also, please can you pass on a thank you to Kate and Richard for allowing us to have such a memorable wedding in their beautiful home. Allowing us to be able to have Sky during the day meant so much to us and you wouldn’t believe how happy we were to find out that we could bring her.
Roxanne Pollard & Alex Didcott wedding at Drakestone House Saturday 1st September 2018
"We hired the house for my husband’s 40th. There was actually enough room for 15 adults and 9 children under 8 (including cots). The photos don’t do the property justice, it is stunning and the grounds are immaculate. The loft room was perfect as a dormitory for the kids. The owners were so helpful and we had a truly memorable time. Thank you we will definitely be back! Thank you for a lovely stay."
"The House is stunning, a great weekend stay within the property, everyone enjoyed the relaxed feel to it, it felt like a home from home experience."
Mr & Mrs Shotton
