Reviewed 9 April 2014

My Son & Daughter in Law, Joe & Katy, were married here on 5th April. We travelled for several hours to reach the venue and it was worth every second of the journey. The cottages we stayed in for the first night were lovely and well equipped and our room in the main house on the second night was beautiful.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the food served both at the reception and for breakfast was exceptional.
We work with our son in the tourist industry and spend a great deal of our time inspecting venues and hotels, Orchardleigh is up amongst the very best!
Thank you for an amazing weekend.

My partner and I stayed at Orchardleigh House, along with our two children for my brother's wedding on 6th April - we stayed in Elsie's room and it was absolutely beautiful. The entire venue was perfect and the staff were incredibly helpful, accommodating and worked so hard towards making the whole day so special. Thank you so much :-)

In March 2014 Our family & friends held the Wedding of Louise & Kevin, this turned out to be a fantastic occasion in no short measure to the staff & surroundings of the stunning Orchardleigh. The staff are first rate,the food both on the day & for breakfast ,delicious & plentiful. I can thouroughly reccommend Orchardleigh as a place to stay. A venue that has bags of charecter,mixing old with new while remaining comfortable & relaxing.
Huge Thanks to all the staff 5* Mike,(father of the bride)

My daughter and her husband had their wedding reception here last weekend. It was absolutley wonderful. The setting was spectacular, the food was lovely and plenty of it, the service was very attentive but not intrusive nothing was too much trouble. Eveything ran smoothly and to plan and I honestly can't fault it. We stayed over night and the breakfast was amazing. Can't recommend this place enough.

We got married at Orchardleigh House on 27th March 2014.
Such a beautiful venue and surroundings. From the initial booking right up until the day the staff were very helpful and friendly, in particular Nicola, Karl and Garry were amazing from the planning stages right up until and including the day, nothing was too much trouble, we can't thank them enough for taking care of everyone and ensuring that we had a wonderful day.
The day ran very smoothly with delicious food and excellent service.
We were so happy that so many of our guests could stay over in the beautiful accomodation and have have breakfast with us in the morning, it seemed to extend the celebration.
I really did feel like a Princess and Orchardleigh was my Castle for the day.
We have so many wonderful memories and beautiful photos we can't wait to return to the estate for our anniversary next year.
We would highly recommend this venue if you want something extra special.

Attended a wedding here over the weekend and have to say probably the best one I have ever attended. The location is perfect and the staff couldn't have been more helpful! The food was tasty and excellently presented! I cannot recommend enough.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The South West's ultimate fairy tale Wedding Venue! Nestled at the heart of 500 acres of exclusive Parkland and Lakes, Orchardleigh House is situated on a gated and private Estate, 10 miles from the historic city of Bath. This elegant 19th Century Victorian Stately Home provides the ultimate fairytale setting for your Wedding Day, surrounded by a breathtaking countryside landscape, beautiful gardens, a Croquet lawn and an 18 hole Golf Course; and offers luxurious accommodation for up to 172 guests. The enchanting array of backdrops make Orchardleigh the perfect spot throughout the seasons, with stunning gardens for basking in the Summer sunshine and cosy open fires in Winter. Within the grounds of the Orchardleigh Estate sit two magnificent Churches, for which you don't need to be from the local Parish to marry, and Orchardleigh House is fully licenced to hold Civil Ceremonies for up to 144 guests. St Mary's Church is perfectly situated on it's own little Island and, due to its secluded spot, there is no electricity supply to the Church, so Wedding ceremonies are lit purely by candlelight - sounds rather magical doesn't it? St Mary's also the only Island Church in the World that has its very own helipad! There is plenty of accommodation on the Estate, for up to 172 guests, with 44 opulent rooms in the main House and a variety of splendid Estate Lodges and Cottages. The cottages are also available to hire the evening before weddings, which is a super way of extending the celebrations. Orchardleigh offers its very own fleet of Wedding Transportation for hire on your Big Day, ranging from a 1926 Rolls Royce Phantom Cabriolet de Ville to the Bell Longranger Helicopter and provide dedicated team of wedding coordinators who will be on hand to help throughout the planning process and on your Big Day. We are proud to hold the following awards: Somerset Wedding Venue of the Year winner. Voted 9th best UK Wedding Venue by Marie Claire Magazine.
