Whether you want a magical day or a weekend full of friends and family getting to know each other you can create memories that you will treasure for a lifetime without compromise. The whole house is exclusively yours for your entire stay under their guiding principle of ‘your stay, your way’. At Huntsham Court, almost everyone can sleep under the one massive roof in vast bedroom suites so you have a real house party for the whole stay with the wedding as a focal point and all the fun of having morning coffee together in your PJs, secret midnight stacks as well as the big formal moments.
From the panelled The Great Hall to the Old Dovecote in the garden, you’ll be sure to find the perfect spot for your vows. If you would prefer a church wedding or blessing this can be arranged either at the picturesque All Saints Church on the driveway (the church even has brilliant bell ringers!) or otherwise there are many other local churches of all denominations locally from cute village churches to grand marble clad ones.

Self catered to full-staffed silver service – you really can create a stay to suit you, whatever you want! They also have a wonderful network to assist with any wedding planning, ranging form suppliers who drive a vintage cocktail caravan or Fish and chip van to the front door, through to 5 star silver service and Michelin star chefs.

Yes, we have a license which allows live or amplified music to be played till 1am. We also have Sonos in the 5 ground floor reception rooms, so when the live music comes to an end you are then welcome to play your very own playlist to keep the party going until the early hours.
No, we do not charge corkage on any drinks you wish to bring and supply at your event. You are free to stock the bar as you wish, serve whatever you like during your reception and wedding breakfast with no additional fee.

Huntsham Court has 42 bedrooms across the estate. The main house has 29 bedrooms; we then have a further 3 properties within close walking distance, providing a further 13 bedrooms. The whole estate can sleep up to 100 guests. However, we appreciate that you may not need all 42 bedrooms, so we offer the option of hiring zones. The first collection of rooms comprises 21 bedrooms, and then the next layer will take you to 29. You can add the cottages as required to suit your guest numbers.
Huntsham Court is hired as a self-catered venue, meaning you are not tied to any packages or using specific suppliers. You are free to design your event to suit your needs. We do have recommended suppliers to help you with planning where needed but you are free to pick any caterer you wish!
Once you have made your booking you will then be allocated a dedicated Event Planner around 6 months ahead of your event. Your Event Planner will be on hand to support you with the organisation of suppliers, assist with creating schedules, be on hand to talk through layouts and help with any questions you may have.
