Intimate wedding venue The Manor Somerset

A secluded retreat for bijoux weddings

Set in the beautiful Blackdown Hills, The Manor provides an exclusive bijoux wedding venue for those looking for an extra special destination for a luxurious and decadent small wedding ceremony and celebration.  Set in 13 acres of exquisite gardens & countryside this 13th century estate offers so much: Three luxuriously restored properties to keep you divinely comfortable during your wedding stay.

An outdoor swimming pool, available from spring until autumn, to relax around with your friends and family before and after your wedding day for all residential weddings; tennis courts for those who like a little physical exertion and; Well-established private grounds offering ample privacy, photography opportunities and, on a practical note, easy parking for all your guests.

What’s more this incredible venue is under 2 hrs from London Paddington by train or under 3hrs by car, or a short flight from London City Airport to Exeter followed by a journey of less than 30 minutes to your bijoux wedding retreat.

Flexible wedding facilities to suit the size of your wedding

You may choose to hold your intimate wedding ceremony in the wood-panelled Banqueting Hall with an open fireplace and a beautiful beamed ceiling which seats up to 50.  For the smaller ceremonies there is a drawing-room that overlooks the grounds and can seat up to 24 guests.

 

And your choice doesn’t stop there. You can choose to host your wedding breakfast in either the Medieval Banqueting Hall or the equally stunning Great Hall. Both of these spaces are adaptable and feel equally comfortable with 10 to 50 guests around your tables. If you are planning a more intimate ceremony and wedding celebration or elopement for 2, then your wedding meal can be provided in your accommodation: either the Manor, the Lake House and the Great Long Barn, each a luxurious property sleeping up to 10 to 24 guests up to a maximum of 44 (up to 50 by prior consent) across the private estate.

Why we love The Manor

We love The Manor as it combines modern sophistication with Gothic and Medieval architecture. The level of care and attention that has gone into the sensitive restoration of this estate is equalled only by the level of personal service and attention you can expect when planning and hosting your wedding ceremony and celebrations here. A bespoke approach is taken to planning each and every wedding at this venue. The in-house team is also “bijoux”! They will work with you to ensure that every aspect of your wedding day reflects your own tastes and preferences, working with suppliers of your choice and/or recommending tried and tested local suppliers as you require.

 

Take your wedding day food and drink for example. Ahead of your wedding, the kitchen team at The Manor will work with you to create your perfect wedding day menu and service package. Whether this is anything from fine dining with silver service or family feasting style with a more relaxed vibe, you can be assured that the best local ingredients will be sourced and prepared in our kitchens in line with your tastes and preferences, as well as taking into account any special dietary requirements anyone in your party may have. It is rare to find such a flexible and considered approach to wedding day dining and with prices starting from £60 per head this offers great value for money too.

The Manor is unique in its approach offering a small hand-picked selection of chefs. These include a French chef, 2 British chefs offering a rustic-style foodie menu to a fine dining menu. All our dining options are available with a wine pairing.

“What can we say? What a fabulous house, food and entertainment. Thank you for helping to make our wedding so special. We will be back! Amy and Sammy.”

Every little detail that makes the experience so amazing sums up your expertise, professionalism and thoughtfulness. It would not have been such a fabulous weekend without your care and consideration. Kristen and Adam.”

Everything taken care of

The level of support provided by this remarkable venue and the in-house team means that everything you require for a truly sumptuous intimate wedding celebration is in one place. You can be assured of a stress-free and wonderfully enjoyable small, yet extra-special wedding day and stay should you choose.

 

The Manor is perfect if you are looking for an intimate ceremony and short stay just for the two of you, equally is ideal if you are looking for a small wedding for 10 to 50 guests. What’s more, with accommodation for up to 44 (or 50 with some guests sharing additional accommodation) when you hire the whole estate, thus more or less all your guests can stay for a night or two if you wish. 12-hour day-weddings without accommodation are also available.  As bijoux weddings go the venue aims to have something for all sizes and wedding spend.

“A huge thank you for such a fab weekend, one in 1 million! The Manor Somerset was the perfect place to start married life. All our love, Emma and Justin.”
