The Setting

Set in drop dead gorgeous country side in West Dorset, near the World Heritage site of the Jurassic coast, and the beaches at West Bay and Lyme Regis, this is a hidden gem like no other. With 360 degree jaw-dropping views, and no neighbours it is a must for a weekend wedding full of chilling, partying and fun.

Axnoller is a stylish collection of 3 houses, with private pools, steam rooms, saunas and cedar hot tubs under the stars. All 17 bedrooms are en-suite and bedecked in “lost count of the thread count” linen and sumptuous towels.

The venue also has a number of options for hosting the ceremony, and the party afterwards including an Industrial chic barn and a Mughal marquee.

The Vibe

Turn down a tree lined lane, stop and stare at the unrivalled, expansive views and then you see Axnoller, private and secluded it is nestled, in a breath taking valley which is in an area of outstanding natural beauty. And just as you are patting yourself on the back for having discovered this incredible hidden gem, you discover that all of this is at your disposal for your exclusive use at a really affordable price.

Taking over this venue means having the most extraordinary estate, with ancient buildings converted to house cool contemporary interiors, as yours. With a small retinue of handpicked staff (only there when you need them) and 2 planners who know just how to throw a fabulous party, you cannot be in better hands.

This is not a hotel, but it is also not a do it yourself venue. It is the best of both worlds. You have all the benefits of a hotel, but none of the disadvantages. You get as much creative input as you would like and tons of help to put on the perfect weekend wedding.

When Alo Brake set up Axnoller, she wanted to get away from the cookie- cutter approach of some wedding venues, and where at all possible she likes to say “yes” to her clients’ requests.

So if it is a small intimate wedding or a really large bash, Axnoller can host it with style and flare.

The vibe is definitely relaxed and non-formulaic, but it is also very elegant and chic.

Alo, Rebecca and a small team will see to it that you have what you want for your big weekend. They certainly know how to make a party rock. So if you want to cover a courtyard and set up a “St Tropez night club” or create a magical secret garden in the barn it is all possible.
