Homme House is an elegant, family-owned Georgian country house. It stands in over 150 acres of historic parkland, woodland and beautiful gardens in rural Herefordshire with stunning views of the Malvern Hills and Cotswolds beyond.
Homme is both an elegant country house and a relaxed and welcoming family home. The house and grounds are offered for couples to use as their own, with a number of options for wedding ceremonies and celebrations inside and out. The local parish church is nestled on the edge of the Homme House estate, while 3 spaces in the house and Homme’s picturesque 17th century Summerhouse in the walled garden are licensed for civil ceremonies.
The light and airy Dining Room seats up to 90 for the wedding breakfast, and a marquee can be connected directly to the Panelled Room for celebrations of up to 140 guests. Open to the garden in the warmer months, the house is warm and cosy in winter with open fires in the Panelled Room and Library.
Homme’s stunning Bridal Suite is bathed in light with views of the gardens and parkland beyond, with an adjacent Bridal drawing room for preparations on the wedding day. A further 8 double bedrooms are available in the main house, while Homme’s 18th century Coach House offers 4 double en suite bedrooms in a cosy separate house with its own private courtyard garden – perfect for couples hoping to accommodate both sides of the family in relaxed elegance without the bride and groom coming together before ‘I do’.
Homme House has ramp access to the ground floor reception rooms and wheelchair access to loo facilities.
Yes - we only offer Homme on an exclusive use basis in the hope that you will get settled in, relax and make Homme your own for the period of your wedding.
For a weekend wedding the hire period is from 9:30am on the Friday through to 12:30pm on the Sunday, so that all the preparations can be made with plenty of time on the day before the wedding, and the morning after can be a relaxed affair, with breakfast at a time to suit you. There are no time limits for any of the spaces or parts of the wedding - Homme is yours to enjoy the way you would like to.
Three spaces in the house are licensed for a civil ceremony. The Hall (max. 25) is perfect for intimate ceremonies, with the backdrop of Homme's beautiful flying staircase. The Panelled Room (max. 90) is a light-filled space with Jacobean fireplace, while the Dining Room (max. 120) has a stunning chandelier and lovely bay window overlooking the garden. Outdoor ceremonies of up to 120 are possible in the Walled Garden, with the backdrop of our unique 17th century Summerhouse, as well as in the 80 acres of woodland behind the Walled Garden or on the lawn.
If you are hoping to get married in church our local parish church St. Bartholomew's is on the edge of the Estate at the bottom of our 1000m parkland drive.
No. We feel strongly that you should be able to realise your vision for your wedding day without costly hurdles or arbitrary restrictions, and strive to be as flexible as possible. For the same reason we do not have a mandated in house caterer, though are very happy to make recommendations for this and other aspects of the wedding day.
Absolutely. Homme has accommodation for up to 32 people in three beautiful spaces - the Georgian main house (sleeps 18-20), its 18th century Coach House (sleeps 8-10) and our unique 17th century Summerhouse (sleeps 2). All of the available accommodation is reserved for you to use as you would like, while there is no obligation to use any you do not need.
Apart from a brief period as a convalescent hospital during the war, Homme has been a private family home for the last 450 years. Georgian and elegant in style, it is private, flexible, relaxed and warm in its atmosphere - a real home filled with love and character, not an empty or corporate 'venue'.
Hidden from view in rural Herefordshire, the house overlooks over 100 acres of traditional parkland and is backed by 80 acres of woodland, with 6 acres of gardens to enjoy around the house itself.
